The Saxon Transylvania - 4 days tour

This 4 days cycling tour will take us through the Saxon Transylvania, in central Romania, a historic region which was inhabited for hundreds of years by German ethnics who settled here in the 12th century. Although most of them have left a quarter of a century ago, the mark they left over the 7 centuries of inhabitance is visible all around. It includes everything from the iconic architecture of the villages to the wonderful fortified churches and the specific cuisine and traditions.

After a first day ride through the Saxon settlements around Sibiu, we will spend the next 3 days in the Hârtibaciu Valley area and its rolling hills, perhaps the last intact rural medieval landscape in Europe. Charming villages are scattered all over this area, each with its own fortified church and people are still work the land using the raw force of animals, just like their predecessors did.
