Transylvania Trail - Romania

Experience Level

Transylvania Trail

5 star rating   24 June 2017

Forward going, fit and well mannered horses able to go all day. There was plenty of fast riding but also leisurely walking through wonderful flower meadows and quiet forests with views for miles from the hills we crossed. The horses enjoyed the riding as much as we did.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

The accommodation varied along the trail, the welcome was always hospitable but be prepared for sharing shower/bathroom facilities. The food was always good and plentiful based on local traditional recipes with fresh fruit and veg from the vegetable garden and local lamb and pork.

How could we improve the quality of pre-holiday information that we send?

It is not true that you can't buy Romanian currency in the UK, it was available easily at Stansted so my guess is that the airports with flights to Romania do offer it and by pre-ordering you can get a better rate than buying on arrival.

(ITS NOTE: We have had reports that it isn't always easy to buy Romanian Lei outside of the country, but it is great to hear you were able to buy it in advance).

Do you have any other feedback for us?

Bree was one of the best guides we have ever had and will be sadly missed by Equus Silvania when she goes home in August.

We might be interested in a centre based winter break with them again to try riding in the snow at some point.

(ITS NOTE: We are so pleased that you enjoyed riding with Bree and that you'd consider returning to Equus Silvania in winter for a chance to ride in the snow).
