Moments to expect in the Sibiu hiking tour:
A bit of hiking in Sibiu
Let's go enjoy the beautiful scenery waiting for us just half an hour outside of Sibiu. Soft mountain peaks, picturesque valleys and hills with pastures and forests, mountain cabins and sheepfolds. Spending time in the beautiful Romanian outdoors is the best thing you can do!
Some Transylvanian culture too
We'll visit a fortress close to Sibiu to learn interesting things about the history of Transylvania and how Saxon colonists settled the area and influenced local culture. For centuries, people here farmed the land and took care of animals - and we'll see the traditional way of doing that!
Traditional & delicious shepherd's lunch
After our nice hiking trip we deserve a delicious meal! We go to a sheepfold and meet the people still doing the fascinating & ancient practice of transhumanta - you'll learn about it! In the meantime, lunch will be prepared with appetizers (local cheese specialties, cold cuts and fresh vegetables) and a main dish: a simple & delicious meal typical for shepherds. It will be a unique gastronomic experience in the mountains!
