Self-led activities

There are many self-led activities to do in and around Nocrich village. You have various old villages just some km around. At the same time, we are situated in a protected area “Sit Natura 2000”. In terms of safety, Nocrich villages are quite safe, as long as you respect the local culture. Your group guide can offer more information about aspects to take into account. If you want to have fun and discover the area, here are some of our favorite suggestions.

HikingFreeThe surrounding area has many beautiful hikes for all levels. These include short circular walks through the nearby forest or all the way to one of our neighboring villages such as Marpod, Țichindeal, or Alțâna. Your group responsible will give you a list of ideas!
Nocrich questFreeHere at the centre we love giving our guests the opportunity to learn more about our home. To this end, we have made a quest that will take you all the way through the village and help you meet several of the locals. It can take between 2 hours to 1 day and it’s a lot of fun!
