If you are looking for a wild and scenic hiking trip at the Carpathian mountains with the option of joining the group for only 1 day or more, then this tour is perfect for you!
The biggest advantage of this tour is that you will be staying at the house located on the high of 1470m in the mountains in Marmarosy and make the day hikes without the luggage and food. There is everything for a comfortable stay at the house: a kitchen, warm rooms with beds, a sauna on wood, electricity. So, carry mats and sleeping bags are not needed!
The Marmarosy massif is also being called the Hutsul Alps. The slopes of these mountains are extremely beautiful, steep, with rocky gorges and boats of glacial origin.
