A Peep Over the Hedge
| Ever thought about how the nature of our forefathers looked like? Flash a glance of trees measuring 1 meter over and stretch your leg in a never seen surrounding. |
Our devoted Rangers will give you the opportunity to discover an exceptional place in the Heart of Transylvania; touch beech and pine from the age of Galileo or Benjamin Franklin (300-400 years old) and get acquainted with the story of a Virgin Forest.
Throughout the program you will leave from the Dobrica Hunting Lodge towards the Sólyom Creek and enter the valley from the Southern side and do a round-hike on the ridge. Besides the huge trees don’t miss the tiny pleasures of an undisturbed environment (flowers, dead trunk formations, mushrooms, game tracks, moss carpets and many more).
While strolling in the ancient forest, not to get bored our rangers will tell you about indigenous Transylvanian flora and fauna which can be an amazing unconventional learning opportunity also for children about wild animal behaviour and the importance of environment.
Transfer to the “gate” will be made by 4X4 vehicles. The program includes grilled or cooked lunch on open fire.
