We love mountains at least as much as we like biking. In our book mountain biking should be a lot about mountains: majestic forests, alpine pastures, rocky ridges, and the assorted mountain trails. But the pinnacle of any mountain landscape is the peak.
Obviously, not every peak is bikeable. And “bikeable” is like beauty: it’s in the eye (mind, legs, arms) of the beholder. Some peaks can be climbed on a bike practically 100%. Others require some push-bike, or carry-bike. The descents, also. These mtb experiences are not for everyone, but those who are keen on this type of adventure would find them pretty awesome. Are you one of them? You’ve come to the right place, then.
As these mtb rides require advanced to expert technical levels, and a very good physical condition – still talking in “touring” terms, and not racing – we will offer the Carpathian Peaks tour as a custom-only program. Send us a message, describing your mtb experience, your equipment, your group, etc, and we’ll build for you the appropriate tour outline.

Here is a video sample of how it’s going to be like:
The above sample peak is one of the nine we have selected for our program. You can go for a one or two peaks in a weekend adventure, or you can opt for a whole two-weeks mtb fiesta. And everything in between: we have enough options to suit every taste, every schedule, every timeline. Let’s get it rolling!
