Rambling in Transylvania and Picnic with a View day tour
Get to know one of the Transylvanian villages at a leisurely pace.
Get close to the real character of the mountain villages as you enjoy a relaxing rambling day trip with beautiful scenery and a network of trails that could be rewarding to explore on foot.
Located at a-half hour drive from Brasov, it's a great place for all kinds of outdoor activities – among them walking, the activity you experience with our licensed guides.
The rolling hills afford wide views over the entire region with stunning landscapes of the mountains: Bucegi Natural Park, Piatra Craiului National Park, Postavaru Massif.
Whilst many of the villages in the area are heavily visited, it is possible to walk here and experience real authentic village life.
The walking grade is easy to moderate, in a round trip for walkers looking to explore a corner of Transylvania way off the tourist trail.
The picnic with a view with local products (such as cheese, eggs, lard) completes a one of a lifetime experience.
Vulcan village lies away from the heavy traffic in a quiet environment and has in its middle a beautiful fortified church. Apparently both the Saxon “Wolkendorf” (the village of the clouds) and the Romanian “Vulcan” (volcano) derives from the oldest form “Wulkendreff”, which may come from the Hungarian “wylk”, meaning wolf.
We spend 10 minutes here.
Holbav village is a remote location. In the ancient times here there were charcoal, silver and lead mines. We start the walk from this village.
