For the guests arriving during the morning hours, 4venture can organize a little tour of the stylish city of Bucharest and you can visit, among other things, the House of People built during and under the lead of Nicolae Ceausescu, the second largest building in the world after the American Pentagon.

During dinner, 4venture will discuss the details of the beautiful adventure awaiting in wonderful Romania.

Day 2: Bușteni - Sinaia, Cota 1400

After breakfast, you will start the journey. The destination for this day is the mountain area called Prahova Valley. This is one of the most important touristic areas in Romania. You will stop in Busteni resort, a place from where you can see the imposing and majestic Caraiman Peak.

After a pleasant walk to the forest, we will go to Predeal to visit a famous restaurant called The Hunter Place. Among many special culinary dishes, you can try the famous bear meet with a perfect red wine.

Day 3: Transbucegi - Ialomicioara cave - Brasov

From Sinaia, drive another 45 kilometers deep in mountains on a very beautiful road named Transbucegi, going through the Bucegi Natural Park.

Ride up to 1600 meters and among other wonders, you will visit one of the most famous caves in Romania, Ialomicioara Cave. Transbucegi is one of the most scenic drives in Romania.

Day 4: Bicaz Gorge - Red Lake

During this day you will pass the Bicaz gorge, DN12C national road. It is asphalted and is located in the Eastern Carpathians of Romania.

The Bicaz Gorges are, without any doubt, one of the most breathtaking natural attractions in Romania. The gorge has the local name of Cheile Bicazului. This scenic drive is spectacular with sheer cliffs rising literally from the edges of the road.

The road inside this canyon looks like serpentine windings. Also, along these walls, you can see some amazing caves like The Black Cave or The Waterfall Cave.

On top of the mountain, you will find the Red Lake, the largest natural mountain lake in Romania. Its name comes from the reddish alluvia (iron oxides and iron hydroxides) deposited in the lake by the Red Creek.

Day 5: Pojorâta village (wine tasting)

During this day you will go to Pojorata, a genuine Romanian village located deep in the mountains and you will take lunch with a Romanian family, in their guest house. The lady of the house will cook a traditional Romanian bio food.

Since you will try some very good Romanian wine, you will park the motorcycle and have a relaxing evening full of Romanian authentic food, wine, and music. You will share unique moments and feel the beautiful simplicity of life.

Day 6: Transrarăul “The Treasures’ Road”

Transrarau - the most spectacular 28 kilometers of mountain road from Bucovina, one of the most important tourist attractions in the area that really cuts your breath. The road reaches up to an altitude of 1400 meters and facilitates access to Rarau Chalet, and famous nature monuments called „Lady Rocks”.

The Treasures’ Road is said to be the third most beautiful alpine road in Romania. Of course, there are many excellent photo opportunities.

Day 7: Rodna National Park - Piatra Fântânele, Dracula hotel

During this day, after a perfect ride on mountain roads, you will visit a special hotel with a fantastic view, called Castel Dracula. There are some surprises for you on this Castle and also you will have a special lunch.

Day 8: Turda - Salt Mine Turda

Salina Turda, located in Turda, Romania, is home to an underground theme park that is nestled inside one of the oldest salt mines in the world. Salina Turda is approximately 400-feet deep.

Salt extraction at Salina Turda began during the medieval period and continued up until the beginning of the 20th century. It was closed for some years, before being re-used during the World War Two, though not for the purpose of mining salt.

The Salina Turda continued to be used in the following decades, though it was during the 1990s that the mine underwent its greatest transformation yet. Unlike many historical sites, which are usually turned into museums, the Salina Turda is today not only a museum of salt mining, but also a subterranean theme park that is known not only in Romania but also outside of that country.

Day 9: Medieval Fortress Sighisoara

Sighisoara, one of the few medieval fortresses that are still inhabited, is registered in the World Heritage of UNESCO. The medieval fortress of Sighisoara is historically related to Vlad Tepes’ father, Vlad Dracula, who lived in this fortress.

Day 10: Transylvania - Sibiu - Valley of Fairies

You will have a rest in the beautiful city of Sibiu, a bohemian atmosphere behind medieval walls. Noble Saxon history breathes from every art nouveau facade and gold-embossed church.

Renowned composers such as Strauss, Brahms, and Liszt played here during the 19th century, and Sibiu has been in the forefront of the Romanian cultural background through its festivals of opera, theatre, and film, as well as rock, jazz, and more.

Sibiu, known in German as Hermannstadt, has always been the center of the German minority in Romania since medieval times.

Also during this day, you will visit a fairytale land hidden in the mountains of Transylvania, the Clay Castle of the Valley of Fairies. The day ends with a delicious traditional Romanian dinner.

Day 11: Transfăgărășan Road - Bâlea Lake - Bâlea Waterfall

You will start the day with a rich breakfast since you have a 1480-step climb ahead of you. The trip continues with the most famous road in Europe: Transfagarasan called by Top Gear’s Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May “the most amazing road we have ever seen!”

On the mountaintop, you have the opportunity to admire the crystal green water of Lake Balea. Then you will stop to majestic Vidraru Dam and take a boat for some relaxing moments on the green water.

If there is still time, you will climb 1480 steps to visit the fortress of Poenari, supposedly Vlad Tepes’s hideaway from the Turks. The legend says that Vlad Tepes, chased by the Turks, got away by hiding in this fortress, after shoeing his horses backwards, confusing his attackers.

The height of the fortress offers a view of Cheile Argesului, Vidraru Dam, and Fagaras Mountains.

Day 12: Curtea de Arges (traditional dinner and wine tasting)

You are continuing your adventure to the town of Curtea de Arges where you will spend the night. The town of Arges, with its special air, full of history, and mystery, the first capital of the Romanian Country, is part of legends and sayings, including the most famous of all, the Legend of Manole.

Arges is one of the oldest settlements in Romania, offering tourists a unique view, holiness, preserved old buildings, small streets, and inviting terraces.

Day 13: Transalpina Road - Horezu (ceramists artisans)

Transalpina road is the highest road in Romania. It is one of the famous Romanian high altitude roads. With a length of 146 kilometers, it goes through the Carpathians, reaching a maximum altitude of 2,145 meters above sea level in Pasul Urdele.
