The Transfăgărășan Highway is a must-ride for any motorcyclist. During our Romanian tour we will ride the Transfăgărășan and Transalpina, the top two scenic roads in the country, and delve into the rich historic and cultural heritage of Transylvania.

We start from Cluj-Napoca on our own bikes. As we ride towards the mountains, we are going to do some sightseeing — go down into Turda salt mine which dates back to the Roman Empire, visit Corvin castle, one of the Seven Wonders of Romania, and stop for the night in Sibiu. This city, a former capital of the principality of Transylvania, has plenty of beautiful architecture to enjoy after a day in the saddle.

The two following days of the tour will be entirely about the Transfăgărășan and Transalpina. Which one of them is the best will always be the subject of a holy war among motorbike riders. We will let you decide for yourself after riding both of them with us!

Once we leave the snow-capped peaks behind, we will continue enjoying the smooth roads and beautiful landmarks of Romania. We will spend two nights in the ancient cities of Brașov and Sighișoara and climb the bastions of Bran fortress also called the Drakula castle.
