Discover the magic and mystery of Romania!

This unique adventure motorcycle tour leads you on remote curvy roads along the major chain of the Carpathians through Transylvania, Moldova and Valachia. The tour offers breathtaking mountain riding through misty dark forests and hilly countryside in combination with a cultural adventure to explore Romania’s unique multi-ethnic society full of ancient traditions.

The Black Sea, Danube Delta, Carpathians and much more!

This fantastic round-tour starts in Bucharest and covers most of Romania. You will see the Black Sea and explore the Danube Delta. You will ride through southern Moldova’s vine region and take breathtaking mountain pass roads to highlights like the Covasna, “city of 1000 mineral springs”. You will spend a day in the southeastern Carpathians, the home of the Szeklers culture, where you visit crater lakes as well as salt mountains located in alpine-like landscape with trout-filled creeks and pine forests. You will explore a region with monumental wooden gates, traditional small farms, pottery and wood carving. You will ride to gorgeous canyons, visit a salt mine, an ice cave and, of course, some famous castles. You will explore the ruins of Dracula, see some Saxon towns and ride up the Trans-Fagaras high mountain pass road to the top at 2.100 m (6,888 ft). During the entire tour you will stay in comfortable and traditional accommodations including one night at a monastery’s guest house. Enjoy Romania’s delicious cuisine, with meals like hotpots, Musaka, mush and roast.

A great adventure!

This tour is an adventure motorcycle tour designed mostly on paved roads. Many of Romania’s paved backcountry roads are still in very poor condition and offer some great adventure for the average motorcycle tourist. It is a great trip to experience with your partner as a passenger. Riding two up is no problem for any experienced rider. A support vehicle will transport your luggage and offers space for passengers.

Highlights:    Bucharest, Danube Delta, Black sea, Covasna, Szelklerland, Bicaz canyon, Moldova monasteries, Maramures region, Turda Canyon, Salt mine, Rimetea village, Scarisoara ice cave, Deva fort, Hunedoara castle, Poienari ruins, Danube Canyon, Saxon towns of Sibiu, Sighisoara and Brasov, Rasnov and Bran castle, Trans-Fagaras high mountain road, Vidraru, Poienari ruins
