CAREFULLY DESIGNED TOURS
RECREATIONAL OR ACTIVE
How do you imagine your cycling holiday? Would you enjoy a relaxed vacation with multiple, long breaks on each cycling day? Or are you an avid cyclist and enjoy riding peloton style, at a fast pace? Our offer is split into recreational and active tours, which suit both needs.
Recreational - we ride around 60km per day with a long lunch break. On the majority of the days we will have several other breaks and longer visits en route.
Active - we ride around 100km per day with a long lunch break. On some days there will be another scheduled visit, depending on the chosen route.
WHAT IS INCLUDED
On our guided, multi-day tours everything is included starting with the first day of cycling. You don’t need to worry about meals as they are all covered. Breakfast and dinner are served at the guesthouses we will be staying overnight, while for lunch we will break en route. Fruit, cereal bars and water are available anytime, during the riding day.
Transylvania Cycling provides bicycles, helmets and bike bags, and you will always be in the company of one of our guides, while the assistance car will always be within driving distance of the group.
For active tours is it our recommendation to bring your own bike.
The tour package does not include the accommodation on day 0, before the first day of cycling, and the alcoholic drinks ordered during dinners.
Accommodation is provided in double or single rooms in cozy and varied village guesthouses. Unless stated otherwise, in the tour description, all the rooms have private bathrooms. For single rooms there’s a single occupancy supplement.
On all our tours our aim is to select the best accommodation possible from a certain area. All guesthouses are unique and have beautiful gardens in which you can relax after a day’s riding. Some accommodations may be small or family owned but they were chosen with our guests comfort in mind.
FOOD & DRINK
More than just cycling, we think of our tours as a journey into the Transylvanian world, in which gastronomy plays a major role. Besides being generous, all meals on our tours are very flavorful, as our hosts prepare them using local ingredients and that's why recipes may vary with the season and with the inspiration of the chefs.
Every evening, three course dinners will wait for us at the places where we'll stay overnight. For lunch time we do our best to arrange meals at local farms or at restaurants with menu a-la-carte. When none of these two options is available, we provide delicious sandwiches or picnics.
In every location we'll stop at, palinca, the traditional Transilvanian plum brandy is included in the dinner. Any other alcoholic drinks ordered during dinner will have to be paid separately, as they are not included in the tour package.
For all recreational tours, our Trek DS series bicycles are included in the price. For active tours we recommend to bring your own road/gravel bike.
We will offer you all our support in transporting and depositing your bike box in case you choose to travel with your bike.
E-bikes - If requested, we can rent e-bikes from one of our partners. The price for an e-bike will have to be paid separately.
On the first cycling day, we will transfer you from your accommodation to the starting point of the tour, from where we’ll start riding . At the end of the tour, we’ll transfer you to one of the main cities in Transylvania or to their connecting airport, from where you can continue your trip. Depending on the tour chosen these cities are Sibiu, Cluj–Napoca, Sighișoara, Brașov or Oradea.
