DAY 2 

Maramures lifestyle

Breakfast.
 
 The true experience of living in Maramureș can be found by working alongside local people – whether this means going to the fields together or giving a hand in the household. Most pensions have vegetable gardens or plots for hay; also, they raise animals – chickens, cattle, pigs – which are, as you already know, the source of the dishes you will receive as a guest.
 
 To understand the locals better, in the first part of the day we will start with an easy walk around the orchards and vegetables fields surrounding the Breb village. We will learn the way the village is organised, how the locals procure for themselves all the necessary needed to live. 
 
 Lunch can be served in a local traditional restaurant. The guide will indicate the best locations in the area. (10 to 15 eur/pax)
 
 After lunch we will return to Breb village where we will discover by foot the traditional households surrounded by large gardens and will be observing the life of the welcoming villagers.
 
 Dinner at accommodation.

DAY 3 

Visit of the traditional techinal installations

Breakfast.
 
 In Maramureș county you can still observe the traditional, still functioning mechanical structures. By using such old devices, villagers managed to sustain their existence by themselves.  One of the places where such installations can be found is Sarbi village, here you can find mills, whirlpools, thrasher and brandy distilleries.
 
 We will be visiting the household of Haiducean family where such installations can be found and are still in usage. You will be able to observe and also participate in some of the activities such as wool spinning and weaving.

Hiking at Rooster's Crest, one day in the nature (easy hiking)

Breakfast.
 
 The area is famous for the spectacular landscapes encountered on the rout, which displays a particular world of lava plateau, volcanic cones, rocky cliffs, vast forests and alpine meadows. For those who are patient the nature will provide a natural gift, a large variety of wild animals living in their natural habitat, all you have to do is observe and try not to be observed.  
 
 We will start your journey towards the Rooster’s Crest, an easy hiking trail at the altitude of 1000m. The trail is taking us through the shadow of the beech forest and meadows with healing plants. The last part is an easy uphill walk that takes us to the rocky formation in the shape of rooster crest, a natural monument that has developed as a result of volcanic activity in the Gutai mountain.
 
 Lunch has been provided "bundled" by accommodation.
 
 The trail effort will be deeply rewarded with blueberries from the forest, the majestic landscape. From the view point of the Rooster’s Crest, you will be able to see the villages built on the side of the Mara and Cosau Rivers.
