Program

Day 1: Cluj Napoca - Turda

Welcome to Romania! Adventure Motorcycle Tours and Rentals' English speaking guide, a motorcycle enthusiast and a 100% Transylvanian, collects you from Cluj Napoca Airport. A city with an outstanding medieval atmosphere, one of the oldest settlements in Transylvania, dating back prior to the Roman period, Cluj will surely impress you with its beautiful old architecture.

To better capture the essence of the area and enjoy the local cuisine, a traditional Romanian lunch is strongly recommended. From Cluj, transfer to Turda, a small town with an intimate atmosphere founded by the Romans under the name Potaissa. Prepare to descend to the heart of one of the biggest salt mines in the country - Turda salt mines, with impressive halls named after kings and queens.

  • Accommodation in a three-star hotel

Day 2: Turda - Alba Iulia - Sugag - Ranca (200 kilometers / 124 miles / 5 hours of riding)

Ride to Alba Iulia Citadel, a fortress with seven bulwarks, a star-shaped citadel, common to Vauban fortresses. It will be an incredible ride for you as Transalpina Road is one of the most spectacular roads of the Carpathian Mountains and the highest mountain road in Romania. With its highest point at Urdele Pass - 2,145 meters above sea level, the road is also called The King's Road by the locals. The road was built under the rule of King Carol II of Romania and rebuilt during World War II by German troops.

  • Accommodation in a three-star country inn in Ranca

Day 3: Ranca - Curtea de Arges - Balea Lac - Sibiu (230 kilometers / 143 miles / 6 hours of riding)

Curtea de Arges is your next destination with its beautiful monastery built in Byzantine style, with Moorish arabesques. Find out the legend of the monastery and continue your journey riding up to the mountains.

This will be another incredible ride for you today. Transfagarasan Highway is the most crooked and challenging of Europe's roads for motorcyclists. Built between 1970 and 1974 as a military route by communist dictator Ceausescu (after the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968), it snakes up into the Carpathians. Continue your journey with the medieval city of Sibiu.
