A memorable winter riding experience in Romania, Transylvania. Relax and enjoy the cozy comfort of your guest house as your base for the week, set among rolling hills and meadows on the edge of the village of Sinca Noua. Go horseback riding in the morning and again in the afternoon, with a break over a hot lunch to warm you up. Savor organic meals from own production and from surrounding local farms. The Carpathian Mountains are not spared from climate change, but so far the period between mid-January and mid-February is still quite safe when it comes to snowfall and riding in powder snow is a unforgettable experience.
