Two days-long nomad horse-cart tour in Gyimes

We start from Csíkszentdomokos, go through the northern part of the Csík alps, reach the Békás – Nagyhagymás National Park and arrive to one of the „pearls” of Gyimes – to Háromkút. We do this tour with one or two carts and two or three saddle-horses (depending on the size of the group). During this tour our guests can have a look at the everyday life of the local mountainers, they can experience the near-nature lifestyle of the shepherds and, in the evening, they can learn how to carve a shepherd’s crook and how to spin whips.
