Sheep Happens – Huts, Sheepfolds and Burduf*


Sheep Happens is an ecotourism activity that proposes you a getaway weekend, in the heart of the Lotrului and Cindrel Mountains, far from the hustle and bustle, from the technology and the everyday routine. We want to discover together how is cheese manufactured, the experience of sleeping in the barn, how the sheep are taken for lunch and other daily activities of the locals, everything along with tasty, authentic meals. Burduf* – salty type of Romanian cheese, made with sheep milk with a strong flavour and slightly soft in texture.

How it happens:

  • Day 1: arriving and tracking – arriving in Râu Sadului where we pick up the goodies bag – 2 hours tracking to the hut or 4-5 hours to the sheepfold – outdoor dinner with the locals – sleeping in the tent, under the stars, or in the barn;
  • Day 2: work therapy – we take the sheep out for lunch, we help in the cheese making process – we help our hosts in the garden – we try to sleep in another place than the night before;
  • Day 3: Down from the mountain – we go down with the horses and the donkeys to make cheese in the village.

Included services:

– 2 nights in the tent/under the stars/barn (spring water, country style WC, no electricity);
