Our flagship tour. The first objective is the ancient wood pasture reservation where we stroll through hundreds of elderly trees, and where we meet the oldest living being in Romania,the Carpathian Elder, a 930 years old Oak tree. Discover Racos Geological Complex where we learn about the past and see the remnants of a volcano, admire the Emerald lake and understand geology through the Basalt Columns.  We head back towards Mercheasa on an alternative route through the same ancient wood pasture.
