Program

Day 1: Arrival at Soparkut

Arriving to Soparkut guesthouse. There will be a friendly dinner, conversation about the trip, and introduction to the route.

Day 2 - Riding day: Soparkut to Kalibasko (20 kilometers) or Vargyas Gorge (25 kilometers)

Have breakfast and then pack only the bare necessities that can be packed into two saddle bags. In each point, you will receive your luggage, taken by the team's jeep. After being introduced to the horses, you will depart from the western slopes of the Hargita mountains. The path crosses ancient forests and beautiful meadows fragrant with wildflowers.

You also have the option of riding through Vargyas Gorge. East of the Homorodalmas village is located the picturesque Vargyas Gorge which is perhaps the village's most important touristic asset. In the gorge, a number of caves are located. A 1500 meter long cave was named after the geographer of the Székely Land Balázs Orbán. The cave was inhabited by man even in prehistoric times, later, in the Middle Ages villagers used it as a fortified refuge.

The micro-region’s most important natural area, the Gorge is a wonder of karst topography. At more than 900 hectares, the gorge is dominated by 200 metre white limestone cliffs which, beyond their beauty, are an increasingly popular climbing area. Beneath the cliffs lies a 7.5 kilometer cave system, home to 17 species of bats, and a haven for cave explorers.

The mid day picnic will take place near a mountain stream, in Kek vize feje. Meanwhile, the horses will have a chance to rest and drink. In the afternoon, you will arrive back at your starting place, to “Soparkut” for a typical Szekler dinner.

In springtime, you will traverse Europe’s largest daffodil field and extensive pastures where herds of horses graze peacefully. From there, you follow a circular route around the Harghita and the Csiki Mountains.

Hargita County, situated in Eastern Transylvania, is a land of picturesque landscape and ambient climate. Dusty trails and rocky forest roads criss-cross the Hargita and Csiki Mountains in all directions, creating a horse-riding paradise. The Hargita Mountains are one of the most spectacular mountain ranges in the ecologically and culturally distinct region of Eastern Carpathia. At its center, the Csiki basin is famous for its rejuvenating springs, folklore and colorful landscape.
