TOUR description

If you are on vacation in Romania between June and September, the Transfagarasan Road is an amazing and unforgettable experience. The 90 kilometers of twists and turns laid over the Carpathians, marvellous waterfalls, scary ravines, steep rocky walls will take your breath away.
Usually, our trip over Carpathians is a round trip starting from Sibiu, but depending of your location we can customize this journey to make your dream trip on Transfagarasan possible. This tour main attractions are, besides the road itself, the Balea Lake, Vidraru Dam, Poienari Fortress and Curtea de Arges Monastery.
If time permits, and you’re interested, we can have some stops on our way to Transfagarasan: Carta Cistercian Abbey, a local sheepfold, a glass-blowing studio in Avrig, traditional weaving workshop or an old water mill can be added to our itinerary.
