Discover the beauty of Transylvania and the Carpathian Mountains over 9 days. Transylvania is one of the most emotive place names. Much of the focus is on Bram Stoker’s creation and the bloodthirsty Prince Vlad III or Vlad the Impaler, upon whom Dracula was loosely based. However, the region offers a fascinating mix of cultural influences, from the Saxons to the raiding Tatars and Ottomans. Cycle through ancient villages and isolated landscapes, visit Unesco citadels and fortified churches, and experience medieval Transylvania and modern Bucharest.

The natural diversity and beauty of the region are also key to capturing the imagination as castles and churches are framed by the imposing Carpathian and Faguras mountains. The best seat from which to view all this is that of a bicycle, allowing you to soak up the tranquillity and majesty of the landscape at a pace that means we can enjoy the hidden stories and places along the way. You'll finish with time in Bucharest, once the seat of communist power but still with enough left to remind visitors why it was once known as the Paris of the East.

The route follows mainly quiet backroads and paths. There are some undulating sections, but the distances are not challenging. This tour is run at a very relaxed pace allowing you to stop and take in the surroundings, or chat with local people you might meet along the route. The support vehicle follows the group and carries all essential items, including food, drinks, and tools. You are welcome to put any items you don’t want to carry in the vehicle and can access them at any point throughout the ride.
