Motorbike Tour – Transylvania

Transylvania. Most people think it’s a mythical place that only exist in movies and fantasy  books…the land of vampires and home to Dracula, who impaled people…This trip is designed to shamelessly exploit that misconception and to show you that the truth about this place is much better than fiction. To achieve this I have teamed up an experienced local motorcycle guide to put together an unforgettable trip.

Discover the real Transylvania – spectacular natural beauty, centuries of history.

Take a ride through the hills of Transylvania steeped in history with centuries-old castles and monasteries. You will visit world famous castles:

Hunyad Castle

Check out the scenery:

…go to awesome restaurants to sample the local cuisine that is freshly made

And of course all this is connected by roads more twisted than a politician during election time…Naturally, it would be insanity not to try the recently opened Transalpina and Transfagarasan mountain passes:

the world’s best riding road?

the latter voted as the world’s best driving road by the boys from UK Top Gear:

At the end of the day relive the ride with your new mates over world class local beer or wine. Eat and sleep like a king in accommodation where royalty have stayed:

The Tour Highlights:

  • Transfagarasan – Top Gear’s best road in the World – yes, better than the Stelvio!
