This guided day tour from Cluj combines the beauty of nature with historical and cultural impressions as well as a touch of adventure.
Cluj – Salciua – Cluj
Departure from Cluj at 8:30 am. After a 1h30min car transfer and 30 km of mountain road, the steep-walled sides of the Aries Valley welcome us at the foot of Trascau Mountains. Coffee in a local village bar and start the hike from the village of Salciua. Forest roads, open fields with large perspectives, scenic village sights, impressive cliffs and wild meadow flowers will be the perfect recipe to experience joy and savor a picnic with a view.
Transfer back to Cluj in the afternoon.
