The 3 day Nature and Hamlets Tour will take you of Ghetari Village, one of the most remote areas in Apuseni. We will experience a hiking adventure, discovering the most beautiful nature Ghetari and Apuseni have to offer. Day 1: We are heading to Ghetari village, one of Apuseni’s most remote areas. On our way, we have two stops: first stop will be at Groapa Ruginoasa (The Rusty Hollow), which is a unique phenomenon. We’ll be impressed by the huge hole formed by the nature; the second stop will be at Patrahaitesti village. We are going to visit our friend Paraschiva, a lady who plays a traditional instrument called “tulnic”. You’ll see that’s quite impressive… The day ends with a rewarding rest in Ghetari village, nearby the fire and best friends. Day 2: Further on, we’ll go deeper inside the world of Apuseni until we reach the Casa de Piatra(Stone House) hamlet, a remote place that seems to be drawn by a painter’s careful hand. You will forget completely about the everyday life from the city. Instead, you will discover the basic and peaceful life from the countryside. Nearby we will find Ghetarul Vartop Cave, a protected nature monument. Every inch of it is covered with beautiful coloured concretions that will mesmerize you. In the evening we’ll return to the beautiful village of Ghetari, after a long but rewarding day. Day 3: Today we’ll visit the famous Scarisoara Ice Cave and the glacier inside it, the first block of ice, underground, in size, from Romania, and the second, in the world. While we descend through the vertical entrance of the cave, we start to feel the low temperature. Don’t forget to put on your jackets and to enjoy the miracle of nature! The beautiful journey in Apuseni Mountains ends but it leaves us with beautiful memories and pictures of a fairy-like realm. A realm of stories and wonders of nature.
