Romania - the Southern Carpathians

Travel is deadly...to prejudice!

Mark Twain's proverb fits particularly well to Romania, a country with friendly people, huge potential, but far too unknown and burdened with far too many prejudices.

An open word among bikers
Guided motorcycle tours with your own motorcycle bring together riders and co-drivers from different countries of origin and with different motorcycles for a common journey. As different as the participants are, as different will the motorcycles be, which makes you expect a fun and interesting trip. As with all group activities, a certain team spirit and a certain adaptation of the individual to the group is necessary for these trips, so that everyone can enjoy the trip and their motorcycle holiday.

Exclusive travel program

Day 1: Vienna - Timisoara

500 km

Meeting at the agreed starting point near Vienna. First of all, we have to master the liaison stage to Romania. Mainly via the motorway, it goes through the Hungarian Puszta, by Budapest to Timeschwar. Before dinner, we take a walk through the old town.

Day 2: Timisoara - Eselnita

300 km

Already in the morning we experience one of the newest and most spectacular pass roads of Romania. Because of the many hairpin bends it is known by the locals as a road on which you can never hold your motorcycle straight. Afterward, we drive through an extremely impressive region, the Danube breakthrough, into the Carpathians, partly directly along the border to Serbia. In the afternoon we will reach the Iron Gates, our hotel is located directly on the Danube.

Day 3: Donkey - Sibiu

315 km

The highest pass road in the country awaits us: the Transalpina. It is with approx. 2,300 m above sea level not only the highest road in Romania, but it is also one of the most beautiful motorcycle routes in the world and has only been asphalted since 2012. On the other hand, we will reach Transylvania. After our arrival in Sibiu, the European Capital of Culture 2007, we will visit the famous old town. In 2019 Sibiu will also be the "capital of gastronomy in Europe" and we will be able to discover this at dinner.

Day 4: Sibiu - Curtea de Arges

160 km

The next highlight is waiting for us. The dream of every motorcyclist driving through Romanian is to ride the Transfagarasan High Alpine Road. It is Romania's most famous and spectacular road and was described by the heroes of the British car show "Top Gear" as the most beautiful road in the world. On the other side of the Carpathians, a small pearl is waiting for us: Curtea de Arges. It was the medieval capital of Wallachia and houses two, particularly beautiful church buildings.

Day 5: Curtea de Arges - Brasov

275 km

Today we drive through the southernmost part of the Carpathians, into the Bucegi Mountains. The area used to be famous for its many flocks of sheep and some of the former shepherd paths have been asphalted in recent years. One of these newly asphalted roads is on our program today. We will enjoy the evening with a leisurely stroll through the picturesque old town of Brasov.

Day 6: Brasov - Coltesti

270 km

We say goodbye to Kronstadt and drive over the "Kirchenburgenstrasse" to the north-west. We will see many rustic villages with centuries-old fortified churches and reach the Kockeltal at noon. This area is famous for the many vineyards, which were already mentioned in Roman documents. In the late afternoon, we will reach a former mining area and with it the small village Coltesti, where delicious Transylvanian specialties will be waiting for us.

Day 7: Coltesti - Oradea

250 km

On the last driving day in Romania we cross the Western Carpathians. Although they are not the highest mountains in Romania, they are famous for their many spectacular formations with caves and gorges. We will again cross a newly asphalted pass and arrive in Oradea in the evening. Those who like can enjoy the wellness area of the hotel before dinner.

Day 8: Oradea - Vienna

500 km

It's to say goodbye to our new Romanian friends. With many beautiful memories, we make our way home again, either on our own or together with other participants in the group.
