As autumn approaches, join us on 4-day supported and guided bicycle journey from the foothills of the Carpathian Mountains to Covasna County, an ethnic Hungarian enclave known as Szeklerland, in the heart of Transylvania. The hills above Bran, where we will start our adventure, are home to ‘Dracula’s Castle’ and over magnificent views of the surrounding mountains and national parks. Zabola, where we will end up, is a castle and estate with its roots in the 15th Century that, after years in decline under communism, has recently been brought back to life by its ancestral owners.
From Bran to Zabola we will cover 205 kilometres along roads and forestry tracks, enjoying wonderful hospitality, remote villages and fortified churches, beautiful traditional guest houses, and experiencing a rural way of life that has changed little for centuries. We also have the chance to see the work being done by TENT to preserve some of the richest biodiversity in Europe.
