Transylvania, with its magnificent forests and vast meadows, is a paradise for both horse and rider. Join us on a riding tour or for a holiday trail for the chance to enjoy some exhilarating canters in open field, to sample local delicacies, visit shepherds and observe a way of life in remote villages where time has stood still.
We offer customised private Trails tours from 3 to 5 days and 7 different center-based tours to different villages in the Hârtibaciu Valley and Târnavelor Valley with departure from Apos described on our website.
The trails are customised and offer the highest standards of accommodation and services. Please contact us for your private group experience.
All our tours are Eco Tours, certified by AER, the Romanian Ecotourism Association, whose member we are. Each day tour is betweem 30 - 40 km long and takes about 9 hours time (5-6 hours riding).
Because our tours are cultural tours we emerge our riders into Transylvanian legends, gastronomy, nature, folklore, get them in contact with local communities and meet extraordinary locals with special talents who are still keeping old ways of life.
