The London Adventure Hiking & Biking Meetup Group Message Board › Cycling Holiday in Transylvania - 7 nights (August 2010)
If you're interested in doing this bike ride - it's posted as an event for "The London Sailing and Adventure" meetup group.
A 7 night self-guided cycling tour (21-39 miles daily) in Transylvania is an excellent way to discover the outback of Europe and travel back in time! We will explore traditional Saxon villages at the foothills of the Carpathian Mountains with their impressive fortified churches, Bran castle (home to Vlad the Impaler, who helped inspire Bram Stoker) and Sighisoara, the birthplace of Count Dracula and one of the best-preserved medieval citadels in Europe.
The tour needs a minimum of 6 people (although I have negotiated discounts on a group of 8-12). Including return flight costs (currently the cheapest on Expedia is £160) the trip will cost £660 per person based on 2 people sharing a twin room on a bed and breakfast basis. The cost also includes bike rental (21 gears), daily luggage transfer and private transfers to and from Bucharest (we start cycling in Brasov and finish in Sibu).
