If you are keen on mountain hikes and winter sports or you simply love nature, then you must go to Păltiniş and Bâlea!
The inhabitants of Sibiu are proud because in 1895 at Păltiniş they inaugurated the first mountain resort in Transilvania, the only one above 1400 m. Nowadays, Păltiniş is the ideal destination for mountain hikes in the Cindrel mountains, mountain biking, winter sports or relaxing strolls through nature.
Who hasn’t heard of the Transfăgărăşan? This is the road that winds up “to the sky” through the steep peaks of the Făgăraş Mountains! Up there at Bâlea Lake you have a large variety of pass time activities be it summer or winter.
