Transylvania-tours-nature-culture-fortified

The tours in this page offer the possibility to discover the landscape of Transylvania, a land of myth, history, culture and beautiful nature. They will guide you through the historical villages where you will visit some of the most beautiful middle age fortified churches, travelling along rural landscapes and re-discovering long forgotten handcrafts that are still alive in this beautiful part of Romania. The Transylvanian forests, lush meadows and plains dotted with haystacks, are home to an impressive number of insects, birds, reptiles and animals and will surround nature lovers with unspoiled medieval landscape.

Prince Charles about Transylvania … a real treasure in terms of agriculture and producing traditional, organic foods. It can be set as an example to the entire world, in this respect.

It seems to me in Transylvania there is a combination of the natural ecosystem with a human cultural system. This extraordinarily unique integrated relationship is so hugely important. People are yearning for that sense of belonging and identity and meaning.

„Here, in the small 13th century town of Saschiz, life has all but stood still. With its UNESCO heritage site of a Saxon fortified church, wolves and bears roaming the woods, and lush meadows brimming with fruits untainted by chemical fertilizers, it is an unspoiled treasure luring Westerners — like Prince Charles — in search of a quieter life.” (huffingtonpost.com)
