Moments to expect during this walking & hiking day trip from Timisoara:

A beautiful decay - Baile Herculane resort

We will drive to Domogled-Valea Cernei National Park and our first stop will be Baile Herculane resort, once known as ,,The Pearl of Europe’’. Overlooked in recent years, the resort is now in a sort of beautiful decay status, but surrounded by a superb mountain landscape -it becomes an amazing sight to see (and photograph!).

Meet the locals and have lunch in their homes

While in these remote villages, we will learn about the simple and self-sufficient way of life the locals have. We will also have a delicious lunch at one of their houses, where you will be impressed to learn stories from their everyday life and how it is to live in such a remote area. It is a life lesson, no exaggeration.
