Horse-drawn carriage ride in the Transylvanian Highlands


No matter if you go for a short ride in the village or you want to go visit the traditional roof tile workshop, the charcoal makers, or the nearby village, to go up in the speck tour, a horse-drawn carriage can be a comfortable alternative if you don’t ride a horse or you need a break in between longer riding tours. It’s the perfect way to get to know and to enjoy the flavor of the Saxon villages in the Transylvanian Highlands.  The carriage can accommodate up to five people and the coachman. Depending on group size, one or two children can join. The fares per ride are fixed, no matter how many people are in the carriage. Bono and Bea, our Lipizzaner pair that pulls the carriage, both walk and trot beautifully.
