It was a long wait, but totally worth it. Scheduled to take place in June 2020, the Transylvanian Alps tour with a small group of brave Belgian mountain bikers finally happened in September 2021. Ciucaș, Baiului, Bucegi and Piatra Craiului Mountains offered us some unforgettable days.
The Covid pandemic might have dramatically changed the world around us, but the mountains are as beautiful as ever. The Carpathians offer some unique combination of pure alpine territory, vast areas with little to no now human presence. And loads of i… (>>>)
The Postavaru Mountains, the Piatra Craiului National Park and the Bucegi Natural Park were our playground for an intensive four-days mountain biking adventure at the beginning of the 2018 season.
Our guests were a group of French “VTT-istes” from Lyon area. They enjoyed the great landscapes, the nice weather, the delicious local food, and, of course, the great trails.
We are slowly but firmly building a proper French Connection, putting Romania on the top destinations list for “les VTTistes français”… (>>>)
We are 4 Israeli Bikers who have been on two previous European Bike Trips. We have been riding for 15 years and have a lot of experience. But this last week exceeded it all by far.
From the minute that we were met at the airport until the last drop off back at the airport, a week later, it was all about personal attention, responsibility and true caring that was displayed by our amazing guide Horia.
Behind the scenes a lot was going on in the logistics department but up front it as all about great food,superb riding and a lot of fun.
We truly learnt … (>>>)
The Israeli mountain bikers seem generally reluctant to go for a full-mountain experience. Lacking experience in tackling long ascents and natural mountain trails, they more often than not opt for “safer” programs, with more cable car lifts, minibus transfers, fewer hours on the trails, etc.
Ronnen, Shane, Motti and Zeev where ready to get out of their comfort zone, opting for our true mountain Bucegi Circuit mtb tour. And they’ve got an experience they will brag about for years to come. A true mountain biking e… (>>>)
Thank you Horia and Iulian for two awesome days in Brasov and Piatra Craiului National Park!
When I arrived in Rumania with my car and my bike the only thing I was sure about was that I want to explore some parts of the Carpathians. After a challenging experience on my own I decided on Monday afternoon to ask Iulian to guide me for the next two days: Thursday and Wednesday.
I was very lucky! Iulian and Horia made it very spontaneously possible to ride some excellent trails and to have two outstanding days around Brasov! Horia was choosing perf… (>>>)
I don’t know about you, but I am pretty sure about me: it’s like Lubo and Milo that I want to be when I am sixty years old. On bike, riding single trails, sweating uphill and shouting downhill. Visiting new places, new countries, new mountains.
I read somewhere that the secret to have a healthy heart and a fresh mind is to do something that scares you a little in every day of your life. Well, we definitely provided enough testing moments for Milo and Lubo during the four days of mountain biking we organized for them this August. Th… (>>>)
If there is something unique about mountain biking in Brasov, Romania, it’s the diversity of landscape and trails you can experience in a relatively small area. It’s always a pleasure to see the excitement of our guests when they witness with their own eyes the smooth transition from forest to alpine teritory, from limestone to conglomerate rock formations, from busy mountain resorts to quiet pastures. from high ridges down to mountain gorges.
Bucegi Circuit, our most popular six-days mountain biking tour, offers g… (>>>)
Christian came to Romania, from Switzerland, with an old Cannondale bike, hand made in USA, to do our Bucegi Circuit, a six-days mountain biking tour. It was also supposed to be a retiring party for the old bike, to be replaced by a brand new 27.5 full suspension bike.
And a party it was, with perfect weather, perfect trails, relaxed atmosphere – hand made in Romania, by mtbtours.ro and mountainguide.ro 🙂

Two words come to mind when remembering our six days expert mountain biking trip we organized for four Austrian riders. Brutal und Total. I kept hearing those two words day after day, trail after trail, uphill after uphill and descent after descent. I am not a German language expert, but it was pretty obvious our friends were really excited by their mountain biking experience in the Transylvanian Carpathian Mountains.
We covered five different mountains – Ciucaș, Grohotișului, Baiului, Bucegi and Piatra Craiului – t… (>>>)
The Saxon villages, the Bran Country, the Piatra Craiului National Park: three hotspots of Transylvanian tourism can be nicely covered in a rather relaxed three days mtb program, as showed by our recent trip with Eva and Christian this June.
The visit at Viscri fortified church, the mtb ride on the bike trails built along the mild slopes of the Transylvanian hills, through forests and meadows, the exquisite accommodation at Casa cu Zorele, the impressive Zarnesti Gorges and the imposing Piatra Craiului National Park, the scenic vi… (>>>)
