Following your hotel check-in, we will take you to visit the Parliament Palace, the world’s second largest building, (Pentagon being the first), after which you can take a stroll through the old center of Bucharest, where you can experience first-hand the essence and spirit of the city and its people, or if you wish, visit The Museum of the Romanian Peasant, which houses a formidable collection of textiles, icons, ceramics, and other artifacts pertinent to romanian peasant life.
Your first trip outside the capital will take you to the famous Cheia Pass, an amazing motorcycle ride through the Carpathian Mountains, with serpentines and scenic views of the above mentioned pass. These mountains also contain one of the biggest salt mine in Europe, the Slanic Prahova salt mine, and thus we included it for you on the itinerary. Situated between the valley of Prahova and that of Teleajen, at about 44 km from Ploiesti, Slanic Prahova stands today for one of the most important watering and climatic resorts in Romania. You will get the chance to walk through the salt mine and to experience, even if for a short while, the amazing benefits of the saline air micro-climate. To wrap up this amazing day, we will ride to the city of Brasov, where we will lodge for the night.
Your ride today will be taking you to a very famous town, one of the oldest ones in Wallachia, namely Curtea de Arges, which was the capital of a small local state. The oldest archeological evidence dates back to the 13’sth century. The city is the site of some beautiful medieval churches and monasteries, among them the Curtea de Arges Cathedral which is on our itinerary. Upon completing our visit here, we’sll ride once more through the Transfagarasan, all the way to Sibiu city.
This is your day to relax in Sibiu! Formerly the center of the Transylvanian Saxons, Sibiu was ranked the 8’sth most idyllic places to live in Europe. Take a nice stroll through the town, visit the cultural center of it and bask in the unique flavour of this place!
Should you prefer to forego the relaxation, we can also provide you with a professional guided enduro ride, where you can discover a magnificent part of wild Transylvania, a mythical territory haunted by the spirit of count Dracula!

To top the challenging enduro ride, we will take you for the night to a place where you can unwind under the stars...barbecue or cook a goulash while listening to some good music, or simply sit around the fire pit, drinking beer and discussing interesting topics such as, women and enduro bikes. ;-)
The barbecue is optional for those who don’st want to participate in the enduro guided ride.
On today’ss itinerary we have one of the oldest towns of Transylvania, the citadel town of Sighisoara, filled with history, little secret passages, clock towers and cobble stoned streets. Visitors can breath history at every corner of the city. Sighisoare Citadel is a 12’sth century Saxon edifice which makes the historic centre of the city. The birthplace of Vlad Tepes, Dracula’ss house, as it is known, draws an amazing number of tourists yearly, as does the Weapon Museum, containing an interesting range of medieval weapons and torture artifacts, as well as the Clock Tower. Your ride through history will not end here, as we also reserved for you a superb lunch time at the Danes Domain, after which we will visit the teutonic fortress of Rasnov, and lastly the famous Bran Castle, also dubbed as Dracula’ss Castle! We will brake our trip in Brasov city for the night.
This day is reserved for the ride leading to Sinaia and its famous Peles Castle. This is a special opportunity for anyone to delight their visual senses in the beauty and uniqueness of this Neo-Renessaince castle. Located in the Peles Brook Valley, on the spot named Pietrele Arse (The Burnt Stones), it is most famous for being the preferred holiday residence of the royal family. King Carol the First purchased the land in 1872, after spending some time in the neighborhood. He liked so much the wild and picturesque landscape that he decided to build a castle, and for this purpose he hired a german architect, Wilhelm Dodderes, hence the german neo-renessaince style of the exterior architecture. Upon completing this relaxing visit, we will return to our initial point of departure, Bucharest city.
This day is concluding your trip. Hoping that you enjoyed your stay with us, we will bid you good-bye, but perhaps only for a short period of time until you will return again...or perhaps tell a friend about us...:)
