ITINERARY

DAY 1: Arrive at Bucharest International Airport in the capital city of Romania. Onward to Sibiu.

DAY 2: You start your epic trip with...an epic climb: the Transfagarasan. Prepare for 35 kilometers of suffering and spectacular views. You start at a height of just 600 meters only to arrive at 2.100 meters a couple of hours later. After conquering this climb we descend on the Southern side of the Carpathians for some well deserved R&R.

DAY 3: You have a long and winding track for today. A 110 kilometers stretch down the Transfagarasan and towards Transalpina your next big challenge on the trip.

DAY 4: Today is a easy, recovery day. Those who don't fee like cycling can relax at the pool.

DAY 5: You'll remember this day forever. It will be the day when you'll say: "Man, that Transfagarasan climb was easy!". We take on Transalpina climb: a 30 kilometers ride, 7% average gradient and a maximum of 23% at times. After conquering the climb we descent back on the Northers side of the Carpathians, into Transylvania.

DAY 6: Don't think if this is the last day you don't have some climbing on the menu. We cycle towards Sibiu on a more gentle and hilly track and our final destination is Romanians highest resort. Finally, now it's time for some Spa & Massage and relaxation. And a giant bowl of pasta!

DAY 7: Departure to Bucharest International Airport.

Beautiful countryside, good routes, physically challenging, but doable. Great accommodations and restaurants. Great Support and Gear (SAG) support. Without hesitation, I would go on another adventure with Martin Adventures.

This was one of the best experiences we’ve enjoyed riding as a group exploring unexploited places. Silviu and Andrei were excellent guides and hosts. The accommodations and restaurants were phenomenal. They took us to the real Romania. Horse drawn carts and backroads that
