Private and tailor-made cycling tours in Transylvania

The best things Transylvania can offer are magical nature, cultural heritage and local people that still live and work their land with traditional methods.

We strongly believe you can't have an authentic experience in a big group, that's why we focus on small ones of 2 to 6 people. We offer one day cycling trips, totally custom-made tours or self guided ones perfectly tailored to your interests.  Tourism is not developed in rural areas of Romania, and our goal is to address this matter in a way that supports local communities and help them grow in the right direction.

You can find us in Sibiu and Cluj - Napoca.

  • 旅行中どこかでサイクリングがしたかったのでここのセルフガイドツアーを利用しました。メールで自転車の経験や行きたいところなどの希望を伝えるとそれに見合ったコースを作ってもらえます。当日待合せ場所へ行くと自転車とヘルメットなどの道具、地図が用意されていました。自転車はトレックのNekoというマウンテンバイクでした。シビウ周辺の小さな村は谷間にあったり、舗装されていなかったりするのですが、そこを走るのに何ら問題はなかったです。全く知らない道を走るのに少し不安はありましたが、作ってくれたルートで迷うことなく目的の場所へ行くことができました。交通事情も自動車の通行量が少ないので気持よくサイクリングできます。トランシルヴァニアの田舎道を小さな村を、地元の人々と挨拶を交わしながら、ときには馬車とともに走ったりのサイクリングはとても楽しい時間でした。

  • Am avut o experienta tare faina alaturi de Transylvania Cycling. Eu si sora mea ne doream de mult sa descoperim Transilvania dar in acelasi timp voiam sa ne bucuram de un weekend linistit in natura. Transylvania Cycling a fost alegerea ideala. Mihai a avut grija sa nu ne lipseasca nimic iar totul sa fie bine organizat. Atat el cat si Adrian sunt persoane foarte deschise si sociabile, care ne-au facut sa ne simtim ca si cand am fi iesit intre prieteni si nu in cadrul unui tur organizat. Ne-au pus la dispozitie tot echipamentul necesar, acesta fiind in foarte bune conditii. Traseul parcurs a fost tare frumos iar la final, desi eram franta de oboseala, imi doream sa o iau de la capat si sa simt din nou acelasi sentiment de libertate pe care ti-l da un astfel de traseu cu bicicleta in natura. Recomand cu multa caldura Transylvania Cycling. Eu cu siguranta voi mai face inca un traseu:)

  • We booked the "Hidden Villages of Călata"-day Tour on short notice, which was no problem for Radu, our guides. Cycling through the transilvanian hills was special and we had many beautifull stops and sights, especially the churches were amazing, each of them around 800 years old. By the way, he knows a lot about as well the history of romania, as also the present situation. Nice guy with good thoughts!! Radu arranged a tipical romanian lunch in one of the villages, which was excellent. At the end of the 30-miles-trip we were all both satisfied and exhausted. Absolut recommodatiom!!

  • Mihai took me on an awesome private bike tour of Rășinari and Cisnădioara. He spoke English well and was very accommodating. He went beyond the regular tour to help me buy homemade cheese and brandy from the villagers. He also translated the museum tour in Rășinari given by a nice lady, showed me the natural spring water there, explained the Basilica in Cisnădioara, and gave me snacks and water. To get from Rășinari to Cisnădioara, we took a somewhat challenging dirt path I wouldn't have known about otherwise.

  • We had an amazing trip thanks to Mihai's effort and local knowledge! We stayed in an incredible hidden away village that we would never have found otherwise (we actually stayed in a building that was part of the walls of the village's fortified church!) and were lucky enough to meet many of the people who are instrumental in preserving and restoring much of Romania's beautiful heritage in the Saxon area around Sibiu, Sighisoara and Biertan thanks again to Mihai's extensive list of local contacts. We chose a self-guided package and everything was excellent- from the bikes to the directions (both printed out maps and a very useful iPhone app) and the transfers- Mihai even offered to come and pick us up when our tired legs couldn't quite face the final few kilometres! Overall we had a fantastic time and were blown away by the amount of effort that Mihai put into our trip. Would definitely highly recommend!! :-)

  • In our opinion there is absolute no better way to see and experience Transylvania than this. My boyfriend and I did a 5 day cycling tour with Mihai and Radu - it was unreal. They were relaxed, accommodating and fun. We got to see parts of the countryside we could have never seen otherwise. They are committed to responsible rural tourism and sustainability. The guest houses we stayed are were all lovely and clean. The food was wonderful. The cycling pace was relaxed with some challenging, but doable, bits and they were well equipped with quality biking gear for all of us. We never felt rushed by them. They felt more like friends than guides. Of special note is that they even sneakily helped my boyfriend plan his proposal to me!!! Obviously this made the trip even more memorable. I can't recommend them enough. We did this tour at the beginning of a 5 week trip in Eastern Europe and are afraid nothing else will quite live up. Go cycling with them - you will be grateful you did!

  • My two friends and I had a wonderful day cycling around the outskirts of Sibiu. We firstly cycled through a park and along cycle lanes to get out of the city and then went through forest, fields and villages. There were only a couple of small hills and we stopped for breaks when we felt the need, Mihai was a lovely guide and he was very informative and answered all our questions about the area and Romania in general. We thoroughly enjoyed the day and would definitely recommend doing a cycling tour with Transylvania cycling!

  • Mihai was a fantastic guide for our nature and tradition tour! He picked us up promptly and drove us to a small village where we began our ride. We biked approximately 55km with two stops in between. One was at an ethnographic museum and the other was in a small village where there was a traditional market occurring. We learned so much about Romanian culture and Mihai answered all of our questions with ease. We biked through villages, fields and along forest roads. Great day and fantastic ride!!

  • We met with Mihai near Sigishoara in Biertan, a beautiful village with a huge fortified church. From there we started the tour, which took us trough lovely country side to the village of Copsa Mare and then we went to Mosna a village were a local family of German(Saxon) origin invited in to see their traditional self sufficient life style. This was the best part of the tour for me - for the first time in my life I saw how a cow is milked by hand, they showed us how they make onion and garlic braids, and we also made one our self, then we had a delicious lunch made of their own home grown organic products. So although this was a cycling tour, cycling was not the main part of it, but a nice background for the other experiences.

  • Cycling is a good thing by itself, but in such a beautiful area as Transylvania and with a guide like Mihai it becomes truly amazing experience. I am not really a skilled cyclist, but Mihai made sure I felt great and easy - we actually hiked a part of the way, as it was more comfortable for me. Exploring two villages - Rasinari and Cisnadiora - was great, with a lot of interesting facts and stories. And the landscape around, all these mountains and forests and meadows... Just magical. In short, I definitely recommend the tour with Transylvania Cycling to anyone visiting Sibiu and it's surroundings.

  • My friend and I had the pleasure of spending a day exploring the beautiful countryside near Sibiu with Mihai. He was a wonderful guide and gave us loads of historic information, brought us to hilltops with stunning views, through tranquil forests and parks, past fields of wild flowers, and to charming little villages. We loved being able to veer off the beaten path and experience a part of Romania that not too many visitors get to see.
