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 9 different center-based tours to different villages in the Hârtibaciu Valley and Târnavelor Valley and customised private trails from one to seven days with departure from Apos.
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 35 - 40 km long and takes about 9 hours (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.
Riding helmets are mandatory. Suitable footwear and pants to be worn. We do not advise riding in denim jeans unless you are used to doing so, as they may chaff your legs. Riding breeches/jodhpurs with chaps or long boots are recommended. Footwear must be supportive of the ankle and have a heel. Sun block is recommended. Gloves are recommended and provided for free. Rain jacket and rain pants that fit over riding clothes recommended, in case of rain.
We require that all riders taking part on the tour are able to walk/trot and canter competently. We advise riders to take some lessons before taking our tours.
Our horses are well schooled and beautifully mannered, suited for both experienced and novice riders.
