In the Carpathians bears, deers, wild boars inhabit the woodlands. Observe the bears in their natural habitat, in safe bear hides and take inviable pictures of them. You can do this in the ”Bear Cinema” at Bodoc, at the Zabola Estate or near the Saint Anne Lake.

The Sepsi Green Trail offers visitors the opportunity to go through 18 localities. Its purpose is to present the landmarks, the natural heritage, the cultural and local values, promoting a better knowledge of the regions among tourists and locals or visitors. The Zeroo Mountain Bike Trail leads you through the crest of the Baraolt Mountain, to the Vadas Pass. From here, it is possible to descend to Valea Crișului or Aita Medie villages (7.5, respectively 11 km).
Put your trekking shoes on and lose yourself in nature by trekking on the various hiking trails. Enjoy the green landscape and the fresh air given by the forests.
