About this Cycle Tour

Romania is a special country and probably one of the most underrated cycling destinations in Europe. With mountains to rival the Alps, countryside to compare with the best anywhere in Europe, surprisingly good roads with very little traffic and thousands of years of history, we think Romania has it all and at a price that beats anywhere. Our Touring Transylvania is the ideal introduction to cycling in Romania. The riding is just amazing. A mix of empty country roads, with a sprinkling of gravel and off-road trails and lots of scenic rest stops and cultural visits along the way as we criss-cross the Transylvanian countryside.

Day 1

Our services start with a pick-up in Bucharest and transfer to Talisoara (total transfer time 3.5 hours) where we start our adventure. Tălișoara is a quiet and pretty village and we will aim to arrive in time for a warm-up ride in the surrounding countryside to get you used to the bikes and terrain and a briefing from your guides. There should be time to relax and enjoy the spa or make a visit to see the local blacksmith in action before our group dinner.

Day 2

This morning, after an excellent breakfast in the castle, we will ride right out of the gates and into rural Transylvania. Our route takes us along the Olt River, passing through medieval villages that have changed little over the centuries such as Vârghis, Dacia and Rupea, where we will stop for a pleasant lunch. In the afternoon we continue on a leisurely ride to Viscri, our destination for the day

Day 3

Today we have another beautiful day lined up and it's well worth getting up early and taking a morning walk around Viscri before or after breakfast. Again, we ride directly from our accommodation heading west towards Dacia and Jibert villages, before crossing a wild forest hill to Cobor village. In Cobor we will visit a biodiversity farm and have an organic local lunch with a fun ride along some lovely gravel roads through the forest and a mix of local asphalt roads taking us to Cincsor. We are comfortably accommodated in a beautifully renovated hotel that used to be a parish house.

Day 4

From Cincsor we ride north to a delightful village in rural Transylvania called Dealu Frumos, which translates as “the beautiful hill” and is considered to be the geographical centre of Romania. Our ride takes us along pleasant rural roads passing several more Saxon villages before reaching Agnita and then a detour to Movile village where we visit an interesting old fortified church renovation project and can enjoy a nice lunch in the village. We end our ride in Sighisoara

Day 5

After another delightful Romanian breakfast, we ride out of Sighisoara following gentle country roads towards Malancrav. Today we will ride a wonderful off-road trail through the villages of Stejareni and Bethlen castle to Prod village (there is an asphalt option if preferred) where we can take a rest and enjoy the lovely pastoral views.

Day 6

Today's cycling journey starts with a very pleasant pedal to Biertan village, which was the very first of Transylvania’s villages to receive UNESCO status. The impressive fortifications, imposing walls and soaring spires set against a backdrop of the green hills make for one of the country’s most endearing images. From Bierten, a short but excellent ride takes us through scenic rolling hills to Alma Vii village, another charming Saxon village and the venue for today’s lunch. Served in a typical Saxon cellar in the town's 13th-century citadel, we will sit down to more delicious Romanian fare. Refreshed and energized, we will spend the afternoon riding through Hartibaciu valley until Nocrich, a pottery centre where we can take a breather and view the ceramics, before continuing to Sibu, our final destination.

Day 7

Depending on your ongoing plans, we will drop you off at Sibu International Airport for your flight or arrange a transfer back to Bucharest (4 hours drive). This trip ends in Sibu, which is a great place to stay and explore for a few days. Please contact us if you would like us to help make arrangements.
