Notes from the off-road

Off Roading: Transylvania

Exploring Transylvania is like taking a journey back in time. Ancient castles and fortified churches, cobbled streets and vibrant markets, quaint villages and hauntingly beautiful landscapes make it a truly unique destination. From the lush forests to the snow-capped Carpathian Mountains, Transylvania has something to offer everyone. With its rich culture and colourful history, this region of Romania will leave you feeling like you have stepped back in time. Exploring by bike is truly the best way to see this amazing landscape and back in August we set out to do just that.
