“Don’t hesitate to visit Romania and explore Transylvania by bicycle. At the moment there is little tourism there and Transylvania remains bucolic, tranquil and unspoilt, as it has done for centuries. I was impressed by the abundance of growth everywhere, the wild flowers by the roadside, nesting storks on village roofs and soaring eagles overhead, gypsies in traditional dress, the horses and carts and well cared for domestic animals. It really is like something out of “Lark Rise to Candleford” – truly idyllic farming country out of a picture book, where here and there time appears to have stood still. Go before it changes, and visit the ancient, medieval citadels and Saxon Lutheran fortified churches. And cycling is a good way to meet Romanians, eat their delicious home-cooked food and see behind the doors of the brightly painted cottages, which front each village’s main street.”
Cycling in Romania Reviewed Tour: Cycle Romania
5 - Excellent
“I have been on a number of Exodus cycling holidays but this was one of the best. The cycling was just right with a number of modest climbs but the countryside is so beautiful and unspoilt with so much to see. Mountains, wild flowers, wildlife, forests, herds of sheep and cattle. Also a lot to learn about the history of Romania which explains the fortified churches, the hilltop citadels, the extraordinary palaces, the legacy of the Soviet era. A brilliant holiday.”
Cycling in Transylvania Reviewed Tour: Cycle Romania
5 - Excellent
“This trip gives you the ability to time travel. Starting in modern Bucharest, which has architecture and a street plan that made it worthy of the nickname 'the little Paris', then blighted by a communist period but is now gradually recovering. But the time travel really begins as the cycle tour winds its way on quiet country roads through peaceful villages which have some modern conveniences but otherwise haven't changed much in a hundred years. At times it is hard to get used to the quiet, but then the silence is broken by a chorus of barking dogs in the distance and roosters crowing in the next farmyard. Much history is covered during this week, with daily sessions to explain the progression of the various peoples that have struggled over this strategically useful territory. We visited many Saxon fortified churches from the 14th century.”

Romania - Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

When you think about Romania, chances are you immediately think of Transylvania and the mysterious Dracula. However, the country has so much more to offer its visitors than this legend. Romania is full of historic medieval towns, colourful streets, gorgeous castles, and Communist-era architecture. The country also offers beach resorts on the Black Sea and thermal spas among the Carpathian Mountains. If you’re looking for a charming destination steeped in rich history and fascinating culture, a holiday in Romania should sit at the top of your list.

Tour Highlights

  • Experience the magic and myth of Bran Castle
  • Visit the salt mines and underground cathedral of Salina Targu Ocna
  • Walk the colourful streets of Sibiu
  • Chase waterfalls in the Cindrel Mountains
  • Explore the halls of Peleș Castle
  • Drive the incredibly twisty roads of the Transfagarasan Highway
  • Climb the clock tower in Sighisoara for unparalleled views of the medieval town

Travel Tips

  • If flying into Bucharest, the capital city, be aware that the top tourist sites of Transylvania are a couple of hours away. Romania is a very large country, so be sure to plan accordingly.
  • You can’t miss Covrigi, a traditional Romanian snack that is similar to a pretzel. Covered in seeds or filled with jam, they make the perfect inexpensive snack as you roam city streets.
  • Romanians are extremely friendly and enjoy interacting with travellers. English is spoken in large cities, but locals love any attempt to use Romanian. Some topics are still taboo in Romania, however, including homosexuality.
  • Taxis are inexpensive and a great way to travel around Romania. However, be careful of scam artists. Always make sure the taxi uses a meter, otherwise set an agreed price before travelling.
  • Take extra caution when travelling through Romanian nature, particularly if camping. A bear sighting is quite common around small towns, and the country features Europe’s largest population of wolves.

Romania has seasonal weather so please do check up on the best time to visit Romania before planning your tour. And if you’re still hunting for more things to do and places to explore in the country , do check out our Romania Travel Guide for more information.
