Bram Stoker’s Transylvania 2021

An expanse of rolling hills and valleys dotted with wild flowers, patches of forest and small villages with the towering Carpathian Mountains as a backdrop. This is probably the last European paradise for horse trekking. Transylvania is always remembered for the mythical Count Dracula, but these lands were also the scene of the dramatic history of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. We invite you to discover its medieval villages, good local wine and the atmosphere that seems to have stopped in the 1800s, where horses were actually used for transport. We will retrace the ancient roads connecting villages through hills and forests starting from Miklósvár, a remote village, with its ancient manor from the 1500s, located at the foot of the Carpathian mountains, to continue to discover Transylvania.

Departure dates minimum 1 person departing from Italy

Additional departure dates on request with a minimum of 4 people.


1° day


Transfer from the airport to Miklósvár, a medieval village with its hunting manor formerly owned by the Kálnoky family and now a museum. This area was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and became part of the Romanian territory during the First World War. Most of the original houses in the village have been restored, thus giving the town a special charm. Dinner and overnight in a guest house, where your host will welcome you and introduce you to the horses for the start of the tour.

2° day


After having breakfast, transfer of about 40 minutes by car to the equestrian center in Valea Crisului. The trek will begin in a northerly direction, climbing towards the pastures that offer an incredible view of the Carpathian peaks. We will see the villages of Kálnok and Zalán from above, we will pass through valleys and forests to reach Malnas Bai in the late afternoon, where we will spend the night in a local hunters' house (shared services). You will have the opportunity to go to the spa, with its beautiful local architecture (by reservation, for a fee), open exclusively for the knights. Dinner and overnight in Malnas Bai.

3° day


We will descend into the forests of the Hatod region, where we will see bear tracks. We will ride around the crater of the inactive volcano called “Murgò”, and then descend towards the village of Batanii where we will be guests of a local family who will be happy to welcome you and show you their old still working water mill.

4° day


Breakfast and departure to the north-east, at the top of the Szép Arca hill, from which we will have a view over the valleys of Barót and Olt.

Time available to visit the castle and its museum. Dinner and overnight in a guest house.

5° day


Breakfast and departure to the east, passing through Szárazajta to climb to the summit overlooking the valley, from which you can see the Carpathian mountains.

Dinner and overnight in recently restored traditional houses.
