As a BONUS for choosing this adventure, we offer 2 workshops (2-3 weeks before chosen date). Their purpose is to prepare you for the journey that awaits for you:
WORKSHOP 1 – it is designed to give You PRACTICAL INFORMATION about the destination and the activities within the adventure tour. In addition, our partners, specialised in MOUNTAIN GEAR, will brief you about the gear. Therefore, you will know what you need and how to choose the gear for this mountain adventure.
WORKSHOP 2 – it is dedicated for teaching you the basics of rock-climbing in the city’s climbing club (Aarhus Klatreklub). We want to show that it is not so scary and is easier than you might think.
Welcome to the MYSTERIOUS Transylvania. Kick off your MOUNTAIN ADVENTURE with your group leader Tudor, who is going to welcome you at the starting point of the tour, CLUJ NAPOCA AIRPORT.
“Create your own breakfast” morning at a cozy traditional restaurant in Cluj – Napoca. After breakfast we will head towards Turzii Gorges for the first activity – VIA FERRATA.
It is an EXCITING WAY of traversing otherwise dangerous paths without the risk of unprotected climbing. For this activity you DO NOT NEED CLIMBING GEAR or EXPERIENCE. Therefore, it is the best way to get an “intro” into rock climbing by simply hiking on the steep scrambling paths, while enjoying dramatic sceneries and SPECTACULAR LANDSCAPES.
We will end the day at our accommodation in the mountains surrounding the beautiful city of Sibiu.
Today’s MOUNTAIN ADVENTURE will start at the bottom of the Cindrel mountains from where we will make our way on a NARROW SHADY PATH that will lead us to the imposing mountaintops of the Cindrel massif. On the edge of the soft summit lies a traditional PICTURESQUE SHEEPFOLD.
It’s the PERFECT PLACE to rest, enjoy the astonishing view and learn about the daily simple life of the shepherds. For lunch we will savour the delicious lamb and milk specialties, skilfully prepared by the shepherds.
Today is all about FINDING NEW WAYS of exploring, both the nature and the old Transylvanian cities. The first half of the day we will be doing a bit of FOREST WALK. But it is no usual walk; it requires passing through NARROW BRIDGES across the forest or finding your path while going from tree to tree in different challenging styles.
In the afternoon, an ADVENTUROUS QUEST is waiting for you in the old Saxon city of Sibiu. A quest that will offer a unique way to discover the city, unexpected local stories and hidden objectives.
This day is dedicated for another way of exploring the mountains, by CLIMBING them. Here is the moment to put into PRACTICE WHAT YOU LEARNED at the workshop in Aarhus, prior to the mountain adventure.
But do not get scared, our HIDDEN CLIMBING SPOT in the Cindrel mountains is perfect for both adventurers who are trying rock climbing for the first time as well as more experienced climbers.
At the same time, while you emerge from the tree line on top of the rocks, at the bottom, our team will prepare a WILD BBQ for you to enjoy it in the nature.
Today’s adventure starts today at the bottom of Fagaras Mountains. From here we will make our way through STEEP PATHS, deep forests, shaky bridges over river streams all the way up to Barcaciu Cabin. During our HIKEyour skills and endurance will be challenged. But the rewards that await on top are worth all the hustle. We will be greeted by 3 beautiful dogs that will walk us to the cabin where Nea Petre will wait with a TRADITIONAL MOUNTAIN MEAL.
There will be some leisure time where you are welcome to chill next to the cabin or wonder around. Around noon we will start our descent which make no mistake it will prove to be quite as CHALLENGING as the ascent. But at the same time the view you will have going down the steep paths will complete the whole wild scenery of the mountains.
We will end the day going back to the mountain guest house next to Sibiu.
We are proud of YOUR COURAGE and DEVELOPMENT! Therefore, this day is dedicated for a CULTURAL WALK in the city of Sibiu.
You will end this unique experience by visiting Astra Museum – the OPEN-AIR MUSEUM – where You can see the collection of mills, the wooden churches & the traditional homesteads. We can assure, You will love the Romanian “Den Gamle By”.
Finally, we believe that before going home, everyone deserves a SPA TREAT in order to relax and be fully fresh for the departure and upcoming week.
After enjoying the breakfast, we will say goodbye to the Transylvanian mountains and head towards the AIRPORT IN CLUJ – NAPOCA for our return back to Denmark.
