Take a self-guided cycling trip through the hills of Transylvania, known as a mysterious and spectacular land with a rich heritage.
This trip will take you into the Carpathian Mountains and Transylvania’s hills. Transylvania is famous thanks to Bram Stoker’s legend of Dracula, and well-known for its forests which provide shelter for many species of wild plants and animals. Surrounded by the Carpathian Mountains, Transylvania was a much sought-for land. The Saxons arrived here in the 11th century to guard the Carpathian Mountain passes between Transylvania and Wallachia against the Tatars and the Ottomans. This is just a hint of the rich heritage that you will discover during this entire trip. An exceptional holiday is waiting for you!
Cycling through this region provides diversity in terms of taking you through cultural sites as well as several small nature reserves. Further, the nature in the region is hardly touched by chemicals which draws nature lovers seeking to enjoy the beautiful pastoral landscapes.
Seasonal Notes: We recommend taking this trip anywhere from the end of April to the beginning of October.
