The tour of the most beautiful villages in Romania spans 7 days, starting in Brasov, passing through Sibiu, and ending in Cluj-Napoca, but depending on the schedule of our guests, we can adjust the itinerary to start or end the trip anywhere in Romania. It is composed of medium-light level hikes involving routes of about 10 kilometers per day, with an altitude difference of up to 300 meters.
More than an active hike, our hiking program aims to reveal the true spirit of rural Transylvania, facilitate interaction with locals and highlight authentic rural gastronomy. The villages visited are emblematic of Transylvania’s multicultural character. We will explore the Romanian villages of the Rucar-Bran corridor (Peștera and Măgura) at a leisurely pace, then move to the Transylvanian Highlands to discover the Saxon villages (Viscri and Biertan). The program continues with the Romanian villages of the Marginimea Sibiului (Râu Sadului, Rășinari), and then we will discover the hidden hamlets of the Apuseni Mountains. Rimetea, the picturesque village of Trascău, inhabited by a majority Hungarian population, could not be missing from our program. This gives tourists the opportunity to get to know the villages founded by the three significant populations of Transylvania: the Romanians, the Saxons, and the Hungarians and to understand the similarities, differences, and cultural influences of each ethnographic area.
