Day 7 In the morning we walk through the spectacular Jurassic-era Prapastile Zarnestilor Canyon. Some rare species of birds like the wallcreeper and Tengmalm's owl are breeding in this gorge. We walk higher up through the forests to the shepherds' summer camps. In Transylvania the old system of shepherding is still alive: sheep are driven through the forests and across the pastures during daytime, only coming home to the camp twice a day for milking.

Day 3 The region around Brasov is closely related to the history of the Transylvanian Saxons. Their strong fortified churches have attracted international attention and some of them are listed as UNESCO world heritage sites.  In the morning we drive down into the valley where we begin an easy hike towards the village of Vulcan. Its name derives from the Slavonic word 'valc' which means wolf.  In Vulcan we will be welcomed with coffee and tea in the yard of the fortified church.

Day 4 Today we travel the traditional way as horse-drawn carts take us into the Barza Valley. As we make our way slowly through the valley we can enjoy the spectacular view, though the open meadows, of the Piatra Craiului mountains. From the valley we hike up to an orthodox hermitage with a chapel hidden in the rocks, dedicated to Holy Paraschiva.
