Program options we offer


(Free of charge in case of booking)

On the road that leads to Körtövés, along the Vârghiș Gorge, Vârghiș Stream flows purling. During the hot summer days, many people like to swim in its cool waters and to listen to the sounds of the forest, while others recharge with energy pursuing their hobby – fishing. If our ancestors used to fish mainly to obtain food, nowadays, a lot of people do it as a competitive sport – competing to catch the most valuable, rarest, most beautiful and largest fish. In this area, you will generally catch trout, but in Vârghiș Stream you might even catch a burbot, which is a rarity indeed.

Hikes in Transylvania

A sunny beach can be refreshing, but so can a small and quiet mountain village that offers a magnificent view. A hike in the forest can be a great way to relax, because everything here is untroubled, even though the region has numerous new and exciting attractions. Here, you will find the perfect places for hikes on hidden paths, among trees and shrubs, sided by clearings and a stream with crystal clear water.

Hikes across the gorge

Vârghiș Gorge is located 13 km away from Vârghiș Village and 6 km away from Körtövés and is one of the most visited karst areas in Transylvania. The valley measures 5 km in length and is mainly renowned for its caves, which have constantly formed specific cave systems ever since the ice age. The best choice you can make is to go and discover this place for yourself, as it is one of the most wonderful natural attractions in Transylvania and Szekler Land. Besides, from the 30 species of bats that are present in Romania, 17 can be found in Vârghiș Gorge.

Cave visiting

One of the best-known stone hallows in Vârghiș Gorge is the Almási Cave, which measures 1.5 km in length (also known as the Balázs Orbán Cave, the Nagy Cave and the Homoródalmási Cave), but apart from it, there are many others. On the way to the cave, on the territory of the natural reserve, you should also visit Csudálókő Cliff, the Lócsűrt Cave and the Csala Tower, the latter being associated with one of the best-known local legends. It is also important to note that the Almási Cave can only be visited in the company of a tourist guide.

Horse riding

Cliff climbing

Throughout the Vârghiș Gorge there are many rock formations. Decades ago, they were simply admired by the visitors, but nowadays their use for sports purposes has become highly valuable.

Bear Watching

The bear observatory in Kuvaszó is located 8.5 km away from Filia, in the quiet valley of Tiatal-Kuvaszó, at mid distance between the Villa of the former communist president Ceaușescu and the Almási Cave, at an altitude of 650 m. The observatory and the small clearing in front of it are surrounded by a dense fir forest and old beech trees that rise up to the sky like silver candles. Depending on the weather and the season, the area of the observatory is visited by various species of animals every day, from wild birds, to small and large game. There are woodpeckers, songbirds, birds of prey, furry predators, large predators and cloven-footed animals. All of these make the visitor’s experience unforgettable.
