What comes to mind first about Transylvania? Maybe the bears? Or sheepholds, mountain pastures, flocks of sheep or the fresh cheese?

During our electric bicycle tour we’ll present two of the most popular programs among visitors of Szeklerland, bearwatching and sheephold visit.

The tradition of nomadic livestock farming is still alive in Transylvania. On this tour you have the chance to visit a traditional transylvanian sheephold and taste the locally made fresh cheese. The sheephold is the summer residence of the sheeps at the foot of the mountain. According to the old tradition, on the day of St. George, the shepherds cast the animals on the mountain pastures and stay with them until the day of St. Michael. The animals are grazing freely, being milked twice a day. After tasting the freshly made cheese, we continue our tour cycling through the woods into the valley of Ivó, then heading towards the Zetelaka dam.

We finish our tour just before sunset near the bear watching spot. We approach the watching spot by foot, where we wait patiently for the bears to gather for dinner.
