Romania - Travel-Enduro Tour: The wild beauty in the middle of Europe

Potholed paths, adventurous mountain ranges, wild Carpathians, the highest passes in the country, impressive culture and friendly people.

Romania - what a country in the middle of Europe. A land full of natural and scenic beauty, a land of contrasts, a country in transition, a land of monuments and culture, a land of hospitable people. A land where Wolf and Bear say "good night". And all this on our doorstep.

We travel to a country that is full of adventure and is still largely unknown to Western Europeans as a tourist destination. Wrongly, because Romania has much more to offer besides its original and wild beauty. For example, the decorated wooden churches in the Maramures or the old, original villages full of atmosphere of Transylvania, in contrast, the lively cities, such as the old Schässburg (Sighisoara), with the oldest, still inhabited castle mountain in Europe. Last but not least, this country is especially interesting due to its extreme contrasts. So it may well happen that once parked at a supermarket, a horse-drawn carriage is parking next to a Hummer.

Spectacular passes and pistes over the Carpathians, such as the Transfagarasan and Transalpina, form the driving highlights of this trip. Similarly, the 60 km of tracks through the Cinderel Mountains with its endless forests. A typical Romanian picture-book landscape in which we can meet one or two bears.

Join us on a journey through a country where there is still much to discover - in the middle of Europe!
