ADVENTURE TRIPS in the Western (Apuseni) Mountains
These trips are led by experienced guides and interpreters,
speaking English, German (or French), specialized in the
different areas (caving, hiking, survival, alpinism, folklore).
We can make the trips easier for inexperienced people or harder
for experienced or professional persons, but in each case they
are very safe. We discuss in advance with you the plan of the
trip, so that nobody will have to do things he doesn’t
like. You can choose what kind of area you want to visit and how
many days you want to spend. If you have special needs like extra
equipment (such as tents, rubber boots, or alpinist-, diving- or
spelaeological/caver equipment for professionals, or others), or
guides specialized in geology, mushrooms, medical plants or
others, please let us know in time.

Visiting original caves
In these trips you can visit the wonderful underground world
of the nicest carstic areas with thousands of wild caves, holes,
underground systems. Some of these are already mapped, some are
still explored, and many others are waiting to be discovered. The
unique attraction of this caves is, that there is nothing
artificial (transformed by people) inside of them, they are in
their original state, as they was formed over many million years.
It is a real expedition with karbidlamps, helmets and caving
equipment. You can see all kind of spectacular carstic
formations, stalactites and stalagmites, “draperies”,
crystals, underground rivers, waterfalls and lakes.
We can organize trips for one or more days. If you wish to
stay for more days, we’ll camp in the wild nature in some
nice valley, and cook at the campfire, like the real spelaeologs
(cavers) are doing. We can cook for you “gulyas” at
the campfire, a typical Hungarian meal, very popular to tourists
who like the wildcamping. We provide you with experienced
specialists and all the necessary caving equipment.
We are offering to You 4 kind of caving trips:
Sighistel Valley (5-6 caves), visiting the Iad Valley (5-6
caves), the Padis Plateau (7-8 caves), or visiting the longest
cave from Romania (46 km long, possibility also to sleep in it).
If you are interested in one of these trips, we can offer you the
detailed description about each one.
Hiking trips in the nature
In these trips you have the possibility to get closer to the
nature and to leave for a time the civilized world. You will see
nice landscapes, mountains, valleys, lakes, gorges, and rocks,
walk and hike in the wild nature or in natural reservations.
We can organize trips for one or more days. If you choose to
stay for more days, we’ll camp with the tents in the middle
of the free nature and in the evening we’ll make a nice
campfire to cook our meals. We can cook for you
“gulyas” at the campfire, a typical Hungarian meal,
very popular to tourists who like the wildcamping, and we can
also buy fresh milk from the peasants. If you are interested, we
can teach You some survival, climber, caver, or rope techniques,
how to make a good campfire in any conditions, or how to protect
the nature - and yourself - in Your trips. We can show you the
most efficient medical plants, the eatable plants and fruits and
many other things nature is offering us. A specialized guide will
lead the expedition.
In the Western Mountains are thousands of areas, which are
ideal for wildcamping. You just have to tell us, what kinds of
trip you wish, what kind of landscape you want to visit and
we’ll offer it to you.
Roundtrips with original wagons pulled by european black
It is a real adventure to travel with very old-fashioned,
traditional wagons (with wooden wheels), pulled by European
buffalo’s. You can make nice roundtrips trough the valleys
and over the hills from the surroundings of the camping. The
European black buffalo’s have their origin in India. They
were used in Europe in ancient times for the hardest works on the
fields, being much stronger and smarter, than the oxes. They have
very good milk. Today they are almost disappeared from Europe,
but here and there you can still find them in Romania.
