Hosted by Equus Silvania

About this experience

8 Days & 7 Nights package for 1 person*​,​ including: Pick-up from Bucharest Airport 7 x Nights Accommodation at Equus Silvania Full Board (Breakfast​,​ Lunch​,​ Dinner) 7 x Horse Rides Day Trips *Maximum number of people: 7 If you love horses and have reached a certain level of riding that includes body control and balance​,​ this holiday is designed for you. The rides will lead you through meadows and forests of the Carpathian Mountains and their foothills between 500 and 1​,​000 m in altitude. We ride mainly on grass-covered paths and trails or on forest roads. Sometimes​,​ we come across tracks or markings of bears​,​ occasionally even of wolves. To protect our horse’s joints​,​ we dismount and lead the horses on steep descents. During the two-day camping trip​,​ we traverse some beautiful forests before we reach a mountain settlement​,​ where people still live a very simple life​,​ without electricity and running water. In the vicinity of one of these mountain farms​,​ on a ridgetop meadow with a stunning view​,​ we set camp and together enjoy a barbecue and campfire late in the evening. Endless forests and spectacular views are the characteristics of this trip. On one of the evenings​,​ you have the opportunity to watch wild brown bears in their natural habitat from a wildlife watching hide tucked away in the forest. We ride in groups of up to 8 people and are accompanied by two guides. We cover between 20 and 30 km daily​,​ which takes us six to seven hours including a lunch break on a scenic spot in between. The rides are a good mix of walking​,​ trotting​,​ and cantering. Our centre-based rides are not suitable for beginners​,​ participants have to be competent in all paces. For safety reasons we require safety helmets to be worn on all our rides. Maximum weight limit is 95 kg. Highlights: Your days will start with a delicious breakfast including a selection of fine organic home-made jams​,​ honey from neighboring bee-hives​,​ a variety of home-made cold-cuts from our own animals​,​ fresh eggs and produce from our own garden as well as fresh home-baked bread and pastries. Enjoy our experienced​,​ forward-going​,​ and keen horses and travel on horseback through the ancient meadows and forests​,​ while taking in the authentic rural life that the locals still live here. On every riding day​,​ you will spend about 4-5 hours in the saddle. We appreciate lunch in free nature​,​ the perfect possibility for you to reload your body with energy in a spectacular environment. Enjoy light meals which you can make yourselves in the morning from the breakfast table. One of the days​,​ you have a break from horseback riding and head out exploring local history and culture by vehicle with a passionate​,​ knowledgeable Romanian guide. You will learn about the rich history of Transylvania on a journey through medieval villages and towns​,​ with a visit to the famous fortified church of Viscri and the only inhabited citadel of Europe in Sighisoara. Every evening you spend at the guesthouse we will close the day with a delicious dining event consisting of 3 courses served with their matching organic Romanian beverages.
