The tour is around 50 km long, 800m elevation gain ( 2 bigger climbs-one on asphalt , one on gravel forest road). About 3/4 of the route goes on asphalt (with little car traffic) and the rest on gravel/earth roads. It is suitable for both mountain bikes and trekking bikes and it has a medium difficulty level. The climb through the forest might have muddy segments if it rained recently. The basic tour can take between 4.5 and 7 hours depending on our stops.
The tour must be booked a few days in advance. Transfer from Sibiu to Avrig can be arranged.
In the short time we had in Romania this was the best thing we could have done with our time.
An excellent way to see wildlife, plants and local ways of life.
Mihai was very knowledgeable about the different eras of buildings and the history of the villages we visited.
This tour showcased the beauty of a country often over looked by tourists.Charlotte Cosey
