Equestrian tours in Romania, Transylvania
Into the Carpathian Mountains


Into the Carpathian Mountains
Transylvania Romania

Transylvania is a land made for the adventurous horseback rider and there truly is no better way to explore the endless hills, meadows, and medieval villages it has to offer. The ride starts at the Southern edge of Transylvania and travels through the Southeastern corner of this mystical land. Journey 110 miles through the lush hills and medieval villages in a big arc back to Sinca Noua from which you begin. See and experience some of the most rural areas that Europe still has hidden, with tens of thousands of sheep grazing traditionally in the hills. Many of the beautiful and famous fortified churches of Eastern Europe along the way are 800 years old! Sinca Noua lay at the foothills of the Carpathian Mountains and is from which the ride ventures towards the plains of the Olt River valley. Many long canters make the riding exhilarating for even the most advanced riders among us. Splash across the Olt River and visit Ticusu Veche, an old Saxon village then ride towards the town of Selistat while observing the continuous beautiful Romanian landscapes.  You are likely to see colorful Bee-eaters, the crowned Hoopoe, and the Lesser Spotted Eagles! Journey over the hills to Viscri, famous for its fortified church, the village restored by the Mihai Eminescu Trust (under the patronage of Prince Charles) to its original setting. Have an evening to explore the village and its 1100 AD church, designated a World Heritage site in 1993 by UNESCO. In the village of Jibert stay in a newly constructed log-house and enjoy a great dinner and bonfire party! With stunning scenery and many chances for strong canters all along the way, the horseback riding and culture available on the Carpathian Mountains holiday is phenomenal and not to be missed!
