For something truly different in Transylvania, venture deep into the eastern Carpathian Mountains on an outdoor adventure in the Varghis Canyon. This small-group tour takes you through a winding rocky passage, across wooden bridges, and inside several ancient caves. Rock climbing is also an option for an extra adrenaline boost. Back in civilization, visit a family-run dairy farm to learn about an important local industry and taste gourmet cheeses.
  • Explore the caves and ravines of Varghis Canyon in the Persani Mountains
  • Cross wooden bridges and explore caves with a provided lantern
  • Sample artisan cheeses at a boutique family farm
  • Great way to get outdoors and off the beaten track in Transylvania
