Cycling Tour Of Saxon Transylvania

This guided Medieval Transylvanian bike  tour takes you along country roads and pastoral landscapes. But also far from the crowded routes, on flat terrain, unpaved country trails, up and downhill trails to enjoy the incredible Transylvanian scenery. You will experience seven or eight wonderful cycling days mixed with an extraordinary culinary and cultural experience.

We will pass historic architecture, preserved since the Middle Ages. You will visit UNESCO World Heritage fortified churches, castles, remote villages and even the medieval city of Sibiu, the former Cultural Capital of Europe in 2007. The landscape is a mosaic of oak and beech forests, rich meadows and pastures. The small Saxon  villages centered on fortified churches are still keeping the same level of civilization.
