Your day by day program

1
In search of the lost villages

We gather in the courtyard of the fortified church in Vulcan to prepare for the adventure! After setting up our snowshoes, we set off for the neighboring village of Holbav. From there we take it slightly uphill to Poiana Mărului. We cross the frozen forests and arrive in a mountainous village. The winter landscape will surprise you with an atmosphere detached as if from enchanted stories: small houses here and there, Piatra Craiului mountains lost in the distance, white, snowy and silent hills.
After such a delight of the soul, we head back to Vulcan.
Once back, a tasty dinner and mulled wine will await us, all sprinkled with the stories of the pastor who will be our host.
We will spend the night in the guest house.

2
One last walk in the snow

We will wake up surrounded by the quietness of the small Saxon village and after breakfast we will have one last hike. With the snowshoes ready, we set off for the famous Bear Sanctuary from Zărnești, located in our vicinity.
To return to Vulcan, we will have a private transfer from Zărnești.
Once we get back, our adventure will end.

Breakfast and lunch included.
