Hiking is a way of life! We love it and we want to share it with you. We want to introduce you to the most beautiful places in our area, to see our virgin forests, unspoilt mountain range, breathtaking sceneries and at the same time find a lot more about our culture, customs, people and their life. And all in hiking vacations that last just one week. After one week in the mountain area you can explore some more or choose a completely different destination: Danube Delta! There you can go fishing and bird watching.
