Transylvania on Horseback is an equestrian tour operator based in Viscri, arguably the best known village in Romania.
Located 80km North of Brașov, Viscri is an eight centuries old picturesque Saxon village, tucked between green, forested hills. The Viscri fortified church, built atop a hill, gave the German name of the village – Weisskirch / White Church, and it is listed as UNESCO World Heritage Site. The reasons to come here are plenty and Viscri is a great spot to begin a horse riding adventure trough Southern Transylvania, one of the most unspoilt regions in Europe.
Actually, Lonely Planet listed Transylvania in 2016 as the #1 Travel Destination in the world and recently as one of the Top 10 Winter Destinations in Europe.
Saddling up and going on a trail ride in such an interesting place is a treat. And so are the days spent here, discovering the local culture and enjoying meals slowly cooked out of locally grown produce. Our tours are done in close alliance with Experience Transylvania, and our guests are hosted in their traditional guesthouses scattered throughout the region.
Our Lipizzaner horses, bred since the 16th century exclusively for the Habsburg monarchy, are also part of Transylvanian heritage. The Lipizzaners are especially famous for their performances at the Spanish Riding School of Vienna.
Our aim is to offer our guests the perfect way to discover Transylvania and to enjoy the simple, good life that locals are trying to preserve.
Experience the best Transylvania has to offer from the back of a horse!
