The resort presents itself in an exceptional surrounding as some of the nearby objectives include The Scarisoara Glacier, The Focul Viu Glacier, Cetatile Ponorului Caves, a large complex of caves piercing the Apuseni Mountains, and the canyons of the Aries river meandering its way downhill. All together, an enchanted fairy-tale like scenery.
Winter Season: December - April.
Directions: The resort can be reached taking the DN75 beetwen Turda (110 km) and Oradea (120 km), or taking DN 76 from Alba Iulia (120 km).
