Equus Silvania offers riding holidays in the Carpathian Mountains of Southern Transylvania. We are located in the small village of Sinca Noua, 60 km West of Brasov. Wildlife and birdlife is abundant, e.g. deer, wild boar, bears, wolves, lesser spotted eagles, hoopoes, bee-eaters, black and white storks. We have 12 riding horses and offer day trips or longer excursions into the mountains and valleys of the surroundings. We put a lot of emphasis on high environmental standards: Our guesthouse was constructed with a maximum of natural materials, we have a reed-bed sewage cleaning, and offer mainly locally produced organic food.

How the minimum criteria of the responsible travel standard was met...

Economic responsibility

Equus Silvania bases its activities as much as possible on local labour force and local products. All our five employees grew up and live in Sinca Noua and the salaries we pay are above average. We prefer local products (fuel wood, groceries etc.) in order to support the local community and actively participate in local events and consult the local council in the sustainable development of the community.

Environmental responsibility

During the construction of all our facilities we have put great emphasis to use environmentally friendly materials.
Our sewage is being cleaned by biological treatment of a reed-bed. Even though we are as a tourism enterprise not able to fully avoid the consumption of fossil energy, we still chose sustainable alternatives, wherever this is feasible from an ecological and an economic point of view.

Social responsibility

Equus Silvania bases its activities as much as possible on local labour force and local products. All our five employees grew up and live in Sinca Noua and the salaries we pay are above average.
