We invite you to embark on a journey, like you have never done before.
Picture this: You, deep in the heart of the mountains, just before the sunset, in a small village house, eating home made goodies, with a piece of home made bread, steamy, just taken out of the oven. Can you smell the bread? You’re doing this while surrounded by your friends who share the same feelings as you.
You sit and listen like a small child and you slowly imagine yourself in the very center of the stories you have already heard…stories about ancient times..ancient people…
Soon you will put your head on your pillow and rest. It’s time for a relaxing sleep that will carry you in the realm of dreams…until the next day when the active chicken will ring the alarm!
It’s time to prepare your backpack and set out for a splendid and active day, for you will be taken in a fairy like scenery: Scarita Belioara Reservation. After a full day, with trekking and nice landscapes, you return to the village house, where you will spend the rest of the evening with your friends.
That’s not all. You wrap a wool blanket around you, enjoy a bowl of hot soup and share impressions from the day that just passed. Can you feel the warmth? You’re already thinking of a good night sleep that will get you back on track…
The next day the journey will take you to Cheile Turzii (Turzii Gorge), where eagles dare, on the famous via feratta route made by our reliable partners SkyFly Cluj. You will be together with brave and competent people who will make this adventure worth living.
At the end of the day you will shake hands and recall those great and unique moments that you shared together.
Do you see the whole picture? Do you want to be part of the adventure?
