We believe that to discover Transylvania, its countryside and its people you must experience them. You will find live history in unspoiled villages and impressive fortified churches unique to Transylvania. A large choice of nature-bound activities will make you get back in touch with genuine natural environment: Everything from bird watching through to bear tracking and horse-cart driving.

Miklósvár Culture activities Miklósvár Nature activities

Our locations are ideally situated to venture into three of the most defining regions of Transylvania: The Saxon Land, the  Szekler Land and the Carpathian foothills. We recommend  combined stays at all  places, i.e., 5-7 nights at Miklósvár and 3-4 nights at Zalánpatak.   At Miklósvár and Zalánpatak, we offer a number of culture and nature excursions, one of each taking place every day. They are directed by our historical/cultural [Miklósvár] and forester guides [Zalánpatak].

Please view the itinerary here.

Zalánpatak is very isolated and once you’re there you will be immersed in our natural environment and be shown around by the resident biologist (see Zalánpatak activities).

Special Holidays:

Winter is a very special season transforming our villages into settings of fairytales and allowing animal tracking in the snow. See activities here.

Christmas and New Year: Festive dinners and live music, village children singing carols, horse-drawn sleigh rides under thick fur blankets sipping mulled wine to the sound of the sleigh’s bells...

Honeymoon & Valentine’s Day: Escape to magical Transylvania: Fairytale atmosphere, remoteness and slow pace of life create an ideal setting for finding true harmony for honeymoons and Valentine’s Days.

Halloween: There’s nothing like being the guest of a count in Transylvania! See details here.

Family Holidays: Please watch this short film (1,45 min.) which caught some impressions of a family’s weekend stay at Miklósvár. Families enjoy preferential rates on the estate.

Transylvania is probably the last riding-heaven of Europe. We offer week long rides for intermediate riders and above. Guests at Miklósvár can enjoy day rides at Kőröspatak. See details here.

Hiking: All locations are ideal for hiking. The Prince of Wales often walks through flower meadows that are said to be unique in Europe: Follow his steps.
