Snowshoeing In Transylvania
SNOWSHOEING IN TRANSYLVANIA! If you love winter and traveling off the beaten path, then this trip is your dream come true! Transylvania – the name alone conjures up images of craggy mountains, gothic castles, horse drawn carts and forests filled with hibernating bears. The reality is not that far off. Crisp winters add an extra dimension to this small corner of Europe, as snow blankets the pastures, farmsteads and woodlands. Spend a week exploring this region, hiking or snowshoeing to small villages, into gorges, through valleys and up mountains, wandering through castles and a bear sanctuary along the way. From our comfortable guesthouse in the small village of Magura, we head out to uncover the region’s treasures on foot. Snow conditions will dictate whether we hike or snowshoe, but either way, we get into the wilderness. Along the way, we meet locals who still live a traditional lifestyle, learn about the region’s rich folklore and history, admire stunning mountain scenery and, with a bit of luck, see traces of the local wildlife, including wolf or bear prints in the snow.
Limited to 16 guests, 16 years and older
