    What to Expect
    We pick you up from your Oradea or Baile Felix hotel at 8 o'clock in the morning and we are going to Ponor Fortresses karst complex situated around 120 km away.

    Our trip lasts around 3 hours.

    Once there, we are visiting the cave ( around 4 Hours).

    These fortresses consist of three large circles of stone, which are 300 meters deep and more than 1 km large in diameter. The formation has 3 entrances and 4 balconies that stand on top of the Fortress.

    The cave has a 2 km long gallery crossed by a river, the largest underground river in the country.

    The access way starts with a forest road that leads to the first circle by passing a bump field which is parallel to Cetatilor Valley.

    A scree  mosaic leads to the second entrance through an arcade. This second entrance is a circular abyss that has an altitude of 200 meters.

    The third entrance can be reached by climbing the metal stairs that are located to the left of the portal.

    The cracks on these sinkholes' walls allow the natural light to enter and the effect is impressive.

    Then we shall reach the balconies situated on the top of the cave. where an impressive landscape offers us the possibility to take pictures, 

    We may  stop somewhere to eat and drink at your choice.

    The retour lasts other 3 hours. At evening we shall drop you off at your hotel.
