What you'll do

Prepare yourself for an initiatory experience where you can rediscover yourself. We will start in a 2,3 hour hike on the mountain, through the forest, in an authentic Transylvanian image.
We will go on the path of one of the most spiritual places on the planet, the royal chakra of Romania, the Sambata Valley!
It is the road that leads to Father Arsenie's Cave, The Saint of Transylvania.
There we can meditate, pray and connect with nature. In this place, you,ll find a landscape that awaken your soul.

Then, the movement through the clean air of the mountain makes you hunger ... Very good because we will go to the Sâmbăta Valley Chalet where we will eat. We’ ll have an authentic Romanian meal and at the same time we have another wonderfull landscape of the Fagaras Mountains and The Big Window of Sambata!
The return journey lasts for an hour and a half, while the last impressions can be made. Of course, we’ll make a lot of pictures and stories with Carpathian landscape.
In this tour you’ll know everything you want about our histrory, culture and faith, you’ll have the opportunity to drink one of the cleanest waters in the world! So, clean and free water in our way. We’ll have the opportunity to know yourself and to discover The Truth with your own senses and I’m glad to be your guide.

You usually get more than you asked for, and most of the time, the state, the only state that encompasses you is that of gratitude.

I was born in Fagaras, a city in the center of Romania. I grew up in the village, alongside my father's grandparents who gave me some more beautiful moral and spiritual values. Moreover, the relief of Tara Fagarasului area, with the highest mountains in the country, with virgin forests and sparkling clear springs, the Olt River (the greatest river in the country), incredible hills and landscapes, taught me to love life so that I can share it with others.

What a wonderful day hiking! Aurel is very knowledgeable about the history, landscape and Saints of Romania and is a passionate storyteller. We had time to meditate by the cave on the mountain and were able to meet the local heard of donkeys. The food was also delicious! We would highly recommend this experience.

Anyone can find a place to hike and bring along a picnic, but to truly know the area and take us to remote spots we would have otherwise chickened out on trying to reach, that’s what made our experience with Aurel truly magical. He was a wonderful guide, friendly and made our hike fun. The meal was authentic and well-deserved after our hike, and the tuica made for an even better time as the weather started to cool off. We’ll never forget sitting in the valley when a herd of donkeys came to meet us and spent a considerable amount of time getting some good scratches and pets. I would highly recommend this experience, and would hands-down do it again (or one of Aurel’s other experiences) when back in the area. Thank you so much!

Aurel is the perfect host for this tour. He is very knowledgeable and very friendly, he made us feel like home. We learned so much about Romanian culture and their history and he tells it with a lot of passion and emotions and we are very thankful for that because we were looking to do something with the locals, we also got to experience some of the local food he brought which was amazing too... along with local drinks. This mountain has a magical and spiritual aspect. Aurel beyond a guide became our friend. very recommended activity!!
