We start early in the morning and leave for one of the most beautiful areas in Apuseni Mountains.

After a very pitoresque drive, we will explore the underground world, where we will find Scarisoara glacier, 3000 years old, the biggest ice cave in Romania.

But that is not all. We will explore the nature, deep in the heart of Apuseni Mountains, and go to a very beautiful hamlet.

Among the people’s houses we will find our local craft man, who makes these old music instruments, called tulnice, in his small workshop.

We will visit Paraschiva as well, the lady who plays the tulnic. Maybe she will teach us a thing or two, although it is not easy at all.

Before we leave for the next highlight, Ruginoasa Canyon (The Rusty Hole), we will taste some delicious pancakes and blueberries.

In approx.. 30 min. we will find ourselves standing on the side of a giant ravene (500 m diameter, 100 m depth), an unique natural phenomenon.

How else can we end this amazing day?
