  • SELF GUIDED TRIP with daily local assistance

People who love horses and the outdoors will find in this trip all what they need. We prepared a roundtrip in group by horse through the Apuseni Mountains. The Apuseni Mountains with its hundreds of kilometers of forestry tracks, country roads and wide open meadows are the ideal place to ride horses. There is hardly any traffic and the local population is eager to welcome tourists. You make daily trips of 4-6 hours. The trip is in PADIS, Apuseni Nature Reserve area and surroundings.

 ACCOMODATION:

Accommodation is provided in guestrooms and in mountain cabins some with private, some with shared bathrooms. The meals are included and you have continental breakfast, lunch packet. In the evening a warm typical regional dinner will be served. At noon, lunch is served along the trail. Your luggage and all the other equipment will be transported to each location. One or 2 guides will assist the group during the trip, depending the size of the group. You don't have to be a specialist in horse back riding, but basic experience is required, especially because a 10 day trip is physically hard for the back and muscles in the legs.

We've included a special page about the Apuseni Mountains: click here 

HIGHLIGHTS OF THE TRIP:

Your trip starts at the village Kalotaszeg area, Tara Calatei, (a hilly reagion near Huedin) and goes right through the Apuseni Mountains over the Muntele Mare - Gilau Mountains with Vladeasa Peak to Apusei Nature Reserve. The trails go along forestry tracks, over large open meadows and country roads. You'll pass and stay in typical Romanian and ethic Hungarian villages.

On the lower hills (between 3 and 600m altitude), you find large meadows, agriculture fields and small patches of forest. The region is open to everyone and this makes it an ideal area for horse back riding. The mountains, between 600 and 1400m offer a more spectacular landscape, large areas are covered with forest, but the riding is often limited to the trails and tracks. But you'll enjoy spectacular views, spectacular watterfals, lovely mountain rivers in a wild superb unspoiled nature with spontaneous flora. 

You ride on Hutsul horses and mixed breed Lipizaner horses. The horses are very calm and gentle and have a remarkable endurance. We provide the horse, the saddle, and spacial bags for luggage tranport.

 

Discover the inspiring story of Transylvania! The Green Mountain is a great active holiday destination!
