The Cycle Romania tour starts and ends in Bucharest. The Cycle Romania is a bicycle tour that takes 9 days taking you through Bucharest, Romania and other destinations in Romania.

Transylvania is one of the most emotive place names. Much of the focus is on Bram Stoker’s creation and the bloodthirsty Prince Vlad III or Vlad the Impaler, upon whom he was loosely based. However, the region offers a fascinating mix of cultural influences, from the Saxons to the raiding Tatars and Ottomans. The natural diversity and beauty of the region is also key to capturing the imagination as castles and churches are framed by the imposing Carpathian and Faguras Mountains. The best seat from which to view all this is that of a bicycle, allowing us to soak up the tranquillity and majesty of the landscape at a pace that means we can enjoy the hidden stories and places along the way. We finish with time in Bucharest, once the seat of communist power but still with enough left to remind visitors why it was once known as ‘the Paris of the East’.

My first cycling holiday, definitely not the last
“Thoroughly enjoyable 6 days of cycling in great company, final day sightseeing of Bran Castle and Peles.Cycling never difficult, mainly rural farmland scenery and rolling hills. A few uncomfortable dirt,rutted tracks but bikes good enough to cope.Stop off activities all worthwhile apart from Bran Castle - a congested tourist zoo which is best avoided.Peles fabulous, beautiful settingSocial evenings with food, drink and great companionship.”

Cycling through Transylvania
“Another super Exodus trip with a great group. The countryside is lovely and most of the cycling was on minor roads and tracks - so peaceful and calm. The cycling has quite a few climbs to increase the heart rate but nothing too severe. The accommodation was varied, clean and comfortable. We were clearly mixing with the local communities and we received smiles from everyone we met. Food was good and locally sourced. All in all a great trip”

Touring Transylvania
“We have been on many cycling tours over the years with Exodus and this was yet another excellent trip. We did not know exactly what to expect (how many people do you know who have visited Transylvania?) but we were not disappointed as the countryside is beautiful, green and rolling, with a good handful of climbs to make the cycling interesting, and all the locals that we met on our journey were friendly and welcoming. The accommodation was varied and unfailingly comfortable, the food of a high quality and the various visits along the route to local cottage industries, fortified churches and cities always interesting and informative.”

Beautifully Organised and Fun Holiday
“Really good holiday and guides. Superbly organised by Exodus. Bikes were in good condition and the accommodation ranged from rustic to very comfortable. For us, the cycling could have been more challenging and at a quicker pace but the guides did really well to manage the different levels in the group.The main negative point was the hotel in Sighisoara which really let us and Exodus down, and also that we were both sick at different times.”
