Itinerary

Day 1: Cluj-Napoca to Turda

Welcome to Romania! Your English-speaking guide, a motorcycle enthusiast and a 100% Transylvanian, will collect you from Avram Iancu Cluj International Airport (CLJ).

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 will be in a three-star hotel.

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

Ride to Alba Iulia Citadel, a fortress with seven bulwarks and a star-shaped citadel, common to Vauban fortresses. An incredible ride for you, 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 will be at a three-star country inn in Ranca.

An incredible ride awaits you today on Transfagarasan Highway, 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. Accommodation will be in a three-star hotel.
