Transylvania

Tour Description

Our tour in Transylvania gives a unique opportunity and feeling to all of our customers. Thanks to the well equipped off road cars and to the thorough research, in the first time ever of the history of  off-road tours, we are able to drive you through the treasures of Transylvania. During the trip you will discover several regions and drive on roads which fall into oblivion long time ago. As you go further up to North you will see more and more villages which are impossible to access with normal cars, as a result inhabitants still live in a way as their ancestors did hundred years ago. The trip was chosen in a way that every day you will see something special, something unique, from driving in the deep forest till climbing mountains with the cars to 2000 meter high. In the last day there will be an opportunity to see bears from a safe distance in the forest with the help of the local forestry.

Difficulty

Our tour in Transylvania from a driving point of view is a medium difficulty level. Depending on the weather condition, some sections of the road can be challenging for the drivers. However mostly we guide our passengers on well-accessible  mountain and dirt roads on all weather conditions. A person with an experience in driving on normal roads by following the instructions of the guide is able to drive on the route without a problem. The daily traveled sections always remain below 200 km, which is not a short route on off-road, but do not require above-average physical fitness.
