Our Curated Valea Verde Experiences provide our guests with unique and authentic experiences during their stay in the tranquility of the Transylvanian village of Cund. 

What better way to experience the stunning Transylvanian scenery than on horseback! The region, particularly the area around Cund, is a true paradise for riders, earning Valea Verde a reputation as a real horse riding retreat. In this part of the “land beyond the forest”, beautiful trails wind their way through ancient forests, while endless open fields offer the perfect conditions for exploring this stunning and special part of the world. 

We are the proud owners of four horses, who can be ridden in our dedicated riding arena or, by proficient equestrians, out in the glorious countryside. An experienced riding instructor will be on hand to teach beginners the basics and guide the more advanced along wonderful trails through the Transylvanian wilderness. 

Furthermore we offer exciting horse drawn carriage trips through this amazing landscape and neighbouring villages. For these experiences we have a  set of four different carriages ranging from a traditional local cart (the carutza) to a sturdy Wagonette, an elegant 100 year old Landauer with a convertible roof and last but not least the luxurious Coupé for special occasions!

We offer a variety of different packages for riding and carriage rides, but are always happy to create a personalised offer for you and your guests!
