A wonderful fairytale landscape, made of green hills, mosaics of crops, traditional villages of Transylvanian Saxons protected by fortified churches, age-old forests, meadows covered by flowers, all these wonders can be admired following the hiking trails long hundreds of kilometers that cross the hills.
For centuries, here life is lived in harmony with the nature which is gifted with a rich biodiversity of flora and fauna. Cascades of flowers and butterflies cover the green meadows, clear streams across the breezy forests where the deer and the bear coexist along with hundreds of songbirds, delighting our hearing. A strong sense of peace, balance and harmony emerges, like a piece of heaven.
The Saxon villages join the natural landscape in a harmonious and naturally way complementing the atmosphere with their archaic flavor.
