One day of caving and hiking in the North Apuseni Mountains
Take this opportunity of exploring the King Forest Mountains of North -West Romania ! Located 150 km away from Cluj, the region we're going to explore is one of the largest cave-rezervations in the South-East Europe.
The tour will include the visit of 2 caves located 4 km hiking way one from the other, along Cris river valley.

Ungurului Cave - located in Suncuius village, the cave is suitable for tourist visit due to its large entrance and interesting palaeontological and archaeological museum open inside it. Archaeological research undertaken in Ungurului Cave shows relevant proves attesting the human presence here since the beginning with the middle Neolitic Age. The objects found in this cave indicate that the human population were involved in agricultural, hunting, and fishing activities. The cave also hosts over 600 bats, of 10 different species, according to the scientifical researches done in 2001.

Vadu Crisului Cave
Vadu Crisului Cave - located in the gorge of Cris river valley, has been one of the best studied caves in Romania. Therefore, the cave has been visited by many biospeleologists like: Benno Wolf, P.A. Chappuis, R. Jeannel and E. Racovita. Marked at the entrance by a fine waterfall which tumbles into the Cris river, the Vadu-Crisului it is composed of a principal gallery, with a stream for over 800 m length.
