Travel is deadly... for prejudice!
Mark Twain's proverb is particularly appropriate for Romania, a country with friendly people, huge potential, but far too little known and burdened with far too many prejudices. We invite you to discover with us the seemingly endless primeval forests of the Carpathians, the well-developed pass roads, the mysterious monasteries, medieval fortified churches, picturesque villages and towns, but also the natural paradise of the Danube Delta, as well as the Black Sea in 13 days on a motorcycle.
Tour dates :
From Vienna 3,600 km, medium-high difficulty with mountain crossings including serpentines, city trips and motorway stages. Short paved sections without asphalt possible. Not suitable for beginners.
This tour is specially designed for motorcyclists who would also like to make one or two cultural stops, take city walks and get to know the country and its people.
OUR EXCLUSIVE TRAVEL PROGRAM FOR YOU
DAY 1: Vienna - Oradea/Großwardein, 495 KM
Meeting at the agreed starting point near Vienna. After all the luggage is stowed in the support vehicle, we start our journey together. First of all, we have to master the liaison stage to Romania. Mainly on the motorway we ride through the Hungarian Puszta, passing Budapest until we reach our destination Romania. Arrival in Oradea, or in German: Grosswardein. Reception by the Romanian tour guide, if you like you can also relax in the hotel's own thermal bath. Overnight stay in Oradea.
DAY 2: Oradea - Cluj/Klausenburg, 200 KM
After the long journey from the day before we will make today a little shorter. Via the Western Carpathians and a first beautiful pass, mostly off the main traffic routes, we reach Cluj-Napoca. Romania's second largest city can look back on a history of more than 2,000 years, with a particularly rich culture (it is to become European Capital of Culture in 2021) and today has a population of about 400,000. Cluj also has a large university and is a particularly lively city, with many nice pubs and bars. Hotel accommodation, dinner in the city centre. Overnight stay in Cluj.
DAY 3: Cluj - Sucevita, 320 KM
Over the Transylvanian hill country we reach the former German town of Bistritz. We continue through the Eastern Carpathians, along particularly scenic and beautiful roads, to the famous Borgo Pass, where - according to the Irish writer Bram Stocker - the famous Count Drakula is said to have lived. At the Drakula Hotel we will learn more about the legend, a bit kitschy but imaginative. The journey continues into the Bukovina. It is a small, self-contained landscape with medium-high mountains. Beautiful passes and idyllic villages await us. This former Austrian crown land is today considered the centre of Romanian Orthodoxy. We will visit one of the famous monasteries with exterior wall paintings. Overnight stay in Sucevita.
DAY 4: Sucevita - Bran, 420 KM
After the early breakfast we explore the Bukovina further. And it goes over the Carpathians in Romania's most spectacular gorge: To Bicaz and the "Mördersee" (Red Lake). Unique landscapes that motorcyclists in Romania should not miss. In the evening we reach Transylvania. The country where German-speaking colonists settled 800 years ago. Before we reach our hotel we visit the famous Bran/Törzburg Castle - world famous as "Drakula Castle". Outside the castle you can also buy some souvenirs of Count Dracula and Transylvania. Overnight stay in the Bran / Brasov area.
DAY 5: Bran - Tulcea / Danube Delta, 395 KM
Today it will be a bit longer and we will start early. It goes over the Carpathians and a very beautiful pass (here the Eastern and Southern Carpathians meet) towards Buzau. Later we cross the Danube by ferry. On the other side of the river the landscape presents itself in a completely different way: instead of the Carpathian forests we see many gloomy villages and dry, desert-like landscapes. Overnight stay in Tulcea directly at the Danube, at the edge of the Danube Delta.
DAY 6: Tulcea - Danube Delta - Mamaia, 130 KM
In the morning we make an exciting excursion to the Danube Delta. By boat we will travel through a part of the delta and will have the opportunity to see different birds (e.g.: pelicans, swans, cormorants, egrets, etc.), fish and other animal species. At noon we reach a village where a typical lunch, who likes also with fish, is waiting for us. After the morning excursion into the Danube Delta we will head for the Black Sea, where we will arrive in the evening. Our hotel, where we will spend the next 2 nights, is located directly on the beach. The Black Sea coast of Mamaia has white and fine sandy beaches that are very long and extensive. The beaches here drop very shallow into the sea. Mamaia is especially known for its colorful nightlife and as a hotspot for the rich and beautiful from all over Romania. Overnight stay in Mamaia.
DAY 7: Day at leisure, 0 KM
Sun worshippers and water sports enthusiasts enjoy their day off by the sea. Also a trip on your own to Constanta, the most famous city on the Black Sea, is of course
possible. Overnight stay in Mamaia.
DAY 8: Mamaia- Bucharest, 240 KM
After a little more than 2 hours on the motorway we reach the Romanian capital Bucharest. Early check-in at the hotel and city tour by bus. Of course we will also visit the Parliament Palace (Ceausescu's madness, as some Romanians call it). After all, this is the largest building in Europe and one of the largest in the world. Dinner in the city centre, overnight stay in Bucharest.
DAY 9: Bucharest - Sibiu/Hermannsstadt, 320 KM
Today one of the most spectacular roads in Europe is waiting for us: the Transfagarasan. It leads us to the second highest mountain road in Romania with 2.042 m and further to the glacial lake Balea. Over unbelievably picturesque bends the route then descends back to Transylvania. In the afternoon we reach Sibiu/Hermannstadt. Sibiu was European Capital of Culture in 2007 and offers one of the most beautiful urban images in Romania. In the evening we are picked up from the hotel and brought to Sibiel. The small Romanian shepherd village is home to one of the best kitchens in the area, where we will be guests for dinner. Overnight stay in Sibiu.
DAY 10: Sibiu - Ranca, 140 KM
We say goodbye to Transylvania and cross the Southern Carpathians on the highest road in Romania - the Transalpina, or: The King's Road. As an ancient processional route, it was long a secret and was first officially opened in the 20th century. In the years 2009 to 2011 it was finally asphalted and since then it is considered an insider tip and a special highlight for all motorcyclists. Highest point: Urdele with 2,132 m above sea level. Arrival at the hotel already in the early afternoon. This leaves enough time to ride this unique pass road once again, either alone, in small groups, or with pleasure once again under the guidance of our experienced motorcycle guide. Overnight stay in Ranca at the Transalpina.
DAY 11: Ranca - Iron Gate, 200 KM
We enjoy the last kilometres of the Transalpina and head for the narrowest point of the Danube: The Iron Gate. This breakthrough valley is considered to be one of the most impressive valley breakthroughs in Europe. Overnight stay in Eselnita, the hotel is located directly on the Danube, which also forms the border to Serbia.
DAY 12: Iron Gate - Timisoara/Temeswar, 260 KM
In the morning we follow the Danube to the Banat. The landscape is particularly exciting, as you ride through mountains but along the Danube. You can take photos at any time - including the remains of the Turkish fortress on the Danube island of Ada Kaleh. In the afternoon we reach Timisoara/Temeswar, the city that was conquered and rebuilt by the Austrian Prince Eugene. In the centre we also learn more about the Romanian revolution of 1989 that broke out in Timisoara and led to the overthrow of the Ceausescu regime. Overnight stay in Timisoara, last night in Romania.
DAY 13: Return journey to Vienna, 530 KM
It means saying goodbye to our newly won Romanian friends. With many beautiful memories we set off again on the way home, either independently or together with other travel participants in the group. Since the bikes are faster than the luggage bus, everyone takes their luggage with them or picks it up the next day at the office of Motorcycle and Holiday.
End of tour.
