Moments to expect in the Sibiu hiking tour:

Hiking in spectacular scenery

Let's enjoy the beautiful scenery waiting for us just outside Sibiu in the spectacular Carpathian Mountains! Rugged mountain peaks overlook soft hills, picturesque valleys with pastures and forests, mountain cabins and sheepfolds. It's idyllic, quiet and unspoilt. Spending time in the beautiful Romanian outdoors while learning about our rural culture is the best thing you can do on your holiday!

Explore the "Hay-Hut Ecovillage"

The Hay Hut Ecovillage is an area up in the mountains famous for its natural heritage. It is an area with many sheepfolds and mountain cabins, the perfect place to experience ecotourism, slow food and slow living. We'll meet local shepherds, learn about their daily life, discover what mountain agriculture means and - why not? - pick berries, do some mowing, go 'forest bathing' and if we're lucky even see some wildlife roaming the area!

After our hiking trip we deserve a delicious meal! I'll set up a picnic-with-a-view with delicious products sourced from the area so you see what all these people are working for and why Sibiu was a European Region of Gastronomy in 2019! Seasonal veggies, cheese and cold cuts that you'll want me to tell you where to buy yourself!
