Huts, Sheepfolds and Burduf* – Sheep Happens

Sheep Happens is an ecotourism activity that propose you a getaway weekend, in the heart of the Lotrului and Cindrel Mountains, far from the hustle and bustle, from the technology and the everyday routine. We want to discover together how is cheese manufactured, the experience of sleeping in the barn, how the sheep are taken for lunch and other daily activities of the locals, everything along with tasty, authentic meals.
