By bike

Explore Transylvanian Highlands and stay active.

If you love bike and a vacation that involves lots of movement, you’ve come to the right place. Wander freely over hills and valleys, following old wagon roads that linked these villages in the Middle Ages.

Whether you prefer slow leisure rides suitable for beginners and families or you are looking for an adrenaline rush and true off-road sensations (more than 100 km of fast single track trails just for that), Transylvanian Highlands is the place for you. With a wide range of trails with difficulty level than span from easy to medium-high, nobody leaves disappointed!

In total, you have more than 500 km of marked trails, which connect the villages in the north of the Transylvanian Hills, following, mainly the water peak between the rivers from where you will have splendid views. Just try them!

The technical difficulty of the trails varies between easy and moderate, but it is important to know that most of them avoid busy asphalt roads and follow forest trails and dirt roads, so an MTB bike is required.

Recommended equipment: water source, hat or head coverage (especially in the summer), proper shoes.

IMPORTANT: You are visiting a protected Natura 2000 area, with a long tradition in animal husbandry. Therefore, you may encounter wild animals and sheepfold, guarded by dogs. We recommend that you are accompanied by an experienced local guide.
