Short description

Step off the beaten track and embark on a full day 4WD adventure in the Eastern Carpathians, one of the least known and fascinating regions of Europe. The rugged mountain chain is a dramatic mix of almost untouched forests, pure streams, beautiful gorges, rocky uplands and rolling farmland. Besides the stunning scenery, you’ll meet on the route local people and you’ll be witness of their traditional way of living, scenic lookout points and thrilling wilderness routes. We pass through small villages, hidden valleys and along mountain ridges giving you a unique experience with some fantastic photo opportunities. For lunch you can choose between picnic in nature or freshly baked trout in a remote mountainous village. Optionally, you can enjoy an easy 3-hour hiking in the rocky Hasmas Mountains or a self drive experience assisted by our guide on some parts where the terrain is not too difficult.

“Best people and best places i've been to!”: The guides are kind and welcoming, they make you not just see the place but also feel its magic and beauty! Their prices are very affordibale and worth the trip. (Byan from Israel in 2018)

"amazingly beautiful and quiet" The landscapes as well as the forests we've been through are amazingly beautiful and quiet. It is a real rest for urban souls. The staff, which are young locals, were very keen to make the best of our afternoon. They speak a very good english, smile without commercial purposes and speak without prefabricated sentences but, what is the most important, they really love their place and enjoy sharing it. We have spent a lovely time there. An highly recommend tour. (Matthieu from Belgium, 2019)

Wir können dieses Abenteuer unbedingt weiter empfehlen.Die Organisation und persönliche Betreuung waren top. Nochmals vielen Dank Istvan. 2 Familien aus Sachsen-Anhalt (Wolfgang from Germany in 2019)

Istvan was a very nice guide, he took us on amazing places, we had a sandwich made by him in top of mountain, the view was astonishing. After that, my husband had his first experience at via ferrata, Istvan took good care of his back. I would highly recommend his tour, we are hoping to have more activities with him. Thank you, Istvan! (Elena from Romania in 2019)

It doesn't get any better: for a rating it is always helpful if you can say what could be optimized. However, I actually have nothing to do with it. ... Our trip was adjusted to the conditions such as weather, personal wishes, transfer, so that an optimal experience was possible and each of us could find his personal highlight. (Kerstin from Germany, 2019)

Wir haben mit Istvan einen erlebnisreichen Tag verbracht. Er hat uns seine Heimat mit Begeisterung näher gebracht und die Schönheit der Ostkarpaten gezeigt. Es ist ein unvergessliches Erlebnis für uns. Wir können die Tour nur weiterempfehlen. Vielen Dank nocheinmal Istvan. (Wolfgang from Germany in 2019)
