If you are on vacation in Romania between June and September, the Transfagarasan Road is an amazing and unforgettable experience.
The 90 kilometres 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 tour starting from Sibiu, but depending of your location we can customize this journey to make your dream trip on Transfagarasan possible.
We offer this tour in 2 versions: the long tour, wich includes driving on its entire lenght, thus being able to enjoy, besides the amasing moutain views, Vidraru Dam, Poenari Fortress ( the real Vlad the Empaler fortress) and Curtea de Arges monastery ( the burial place of the Romanian Royal family). The short version of the tour includes driving on the most spectacular part of the road, up to Balea Lake and a few kilometres on the south side of the mountain, and visit to the fairy-tale Clay Castle, Carta Abbey or the Brukenthal Palace.
If time permits and weather allows, we can have a picnic up in the mountains. You just have to tell me what you'll want to eat. I'll do the shopping and I'll bring with me the rest we need for our picnic on the roof of Romania, Thus, you'll have the chance to drink a glass of wine, taste the local foods, breathe the fresh air and admire the amazing view from Transfagarasan.
