During our journey, we explore Nagyhagymás National Park, the sole national park in Szeklerland. Here we can witness hidden and untouched mountain landscapes, dense forests, awe-inspiring peaks, and crystal-clear waters. Some of these locations hold significant historical importance, while others seek validation through a variety of fairy tales and legends cherished by the local people.

The diverse terrain offers opportunities for both short and long horseback rides, but the more challenging slopes may require riders to dismount and walk. When we reach the summit of Nagyhagymás mountain at 1792 meters, it feels as though we are on the pinnacle of the world.

My name is László Karda andI live with my family in Csíkszentdomokos, Transylvania (Romania). I am a folkdance teacher by profession, I have been teaching folk dance for more than 20 years. I teach not only children but adults as well. I have organized horse-riding tours since 2012. My wife and my children (a son and a daughter) help me with the tours. They are also fond of nature and horses. Our guests will have the possibility to see all these places on horseback or carriaged,they can taste our traditional foods, they can learn about ourculture. Our aim is to show Szeklerland with itʾs pure beauty and wilderness,but also the calm and peace that mountains can give people.
