This is a 7 day complete adventure holiday. We chose Poiana Brasov Ski Resort as our base camp over the next 6 nights for the breathtaking mountain biking trails it provides over the summer and for being very conveniently located in the center of Romania.
Every day we will mountain bike our way into some of the most iconic places in Transylvania. All the amazing sites we are about to explore are located within South East Transylvania and a short drive from our hotel.
Day 1: Pick up from the airport and transfer to Poiana Brasov, which will be our base camp for the next 6 nights. While we have a traditional dinner we’ll get to know more details about the adventure ahead.
Day 2: We will visit Dracula’s Castle and ride the hills around the castle for an epic adventure where we’ll learn more about the habits and culture of the local people living in the mountain villages outside Dracula’s Castle. (Moderate trails 35-40 km, 900+)
Day 3: After a short drive North West of our hotel, we’ll find ourselves in the wonderful village of Viscri, home of Prince Charles rural getaway home. He loves this village so much that he visits four times every year. There is also the longest purpose build mountain bike track in Romania which runs through the most beautiful hills in Transilvania. (Easy-moderate trails 30-50 km, 400+)
Day 4: We’ll start the day early with a 700 meter descent to Brasov City on a one of a kind, 10 km, very technical single trail.
