Relaxing Retreat August 2020

Update July 2020: CANCELLED

Due to covid-19 measures, GOIN has decided to cancel this retreat. With the current situation, it is impossible to organize anything. Romania gets a negative travel advice from many European countries. However, this is not because the health and safety standards are not good. On the contrary… statistics for Romania (and especially Transylvania) are better than most of western Europe. This decision is nothing but politics.

Western countries allow people to travel to resorts, city centres and camp grounds with thousands of foreigners crowding together. That’s all about economic pressure. It doesn’t matter if GOIN assures you, that everything is safe and fine here. Most direct flights to Cluj-Napoca are still cancelled, you won’t get travel insurance, and you might even be stopped at the border. We just can’t take that risk, and therefore we had to cancel it all.

We are very sorry to disappoint you, but we will be back in the near future. Please stay in touch if you want know about new dates, or if you have other questions or ideas. Just send an e-mail to: info@gointravels.com

GOIN has a wonderful relaxing retreat planned for you. End of summers in Romania are amazing. This time of year is ideal for hiking and enjoying the outdoors. At our perfect location in Feleacu, just outside Cluj-Napoca, we offer massage, yoga, homemade vegetarian dishes, meditation, and much more. We visit the medieval town of Sighisoara. It is so gorgeous, that it’s been used many times as a historical filmset for movies and TV-series. So, make sure to bring your camera! And… this time of year, the Transfagarasan highway is open. This road has been voted “the best road in the world” by Top Gear (and other car lovers magazines). We simply háve to drive into the mountains… if not just for the road, bit also the sights. The views are incredible and it is such a joy to drive and experience. Check here the very first blog-post I wrote for this website, about this highway.

We have 8 rooms accommodation for a minimum of 4 and maximum of 14 guests. At the location there is a private pool, a terrace, an outside kitchen and even a hot-tub. As soon as you walk out the gate, you walk straight into the fields and forest. The view is open to nothing but nature. From our location, you can easily start one of the many walking tracks in the area. All massages and other treatments are offered at the location itself. Next to the program, there is plenty of time for yourself to go hiking, exploring, mountain-biking, or just relaxing with a book. And if you want to enjoy Cluj more, or like to do another hike, we are happy to drive you there.
