It is the perfect place for a hiking day trip from Cluj-Napoca! We will see local village life, climb some rocks, go on wild trails through caves and virgin forests!

    On our way to the top of Scarita Belioara we will pass through remote mountain villages and communities. People living in these areas are the perfect example of the traditional, self-sustainable way of life of Romanian villages. You will see locals at work, greet them and have the chance to buy a jar of homemade honey, syrups, tea or traditional drinks or food from them!

  • Natural unspoiled resources
