Traditional cheese making and biodiversity tour in the Gyimes Valley


Step back in time and learn about the traditional cheese making in the wonderful world of the Gyimes/Ghimes Hills!

Here we discover a typical traditional farm as our host guides us on his subsistence farm. We visit a Kaliba, which is a typical summer shelter up in the pasture and we try cheese making. In a walking tour we visit the ruins of the Rakoczi fortress, and with the help of our host, we can learn about the biodiversity of meadows, herbs and mushrooms. At the fortress we will recall the events from of the First and Second World Wars.
