Bonanza trail! – Transylvanian Alps 2021

trip report

"It was an incredible experience! Very beautiful landscape, challenging trails, good organization. Very much enjoyed. Special thanks to our guide…"

It was scheduled to happen in June 2020, but a tiny virus had other plans for the entire planet Earth. More than one year later our Belgian guests finally arrived in Romania for the week-long Transylvanian Alps tour, adding the South East Carpathian Mountains to their impressive list of mountain biking destinations.

The menu was, as always, complex: long and demanding climbs, push and carry-bike sessions, epic descents on “Bonanza trails”. Zero bears encounters, but a few shepherd dogs (honestly a bigger threat for the unaccustomed traveller). Lots of loughs, a few scratches, some beers. Good food.

A great week, a good reminder that things can be normal. Hoping for an even more normal 2022.

It was an incredible experience! Very beautiful landscape, challenging trails, good organization. Very much enjoyed.
Special thanks to our guide Horia for assisting us so well and giving numerous tips along the way. Even though I’ve been riding my bike for 40 years, I still learned new things from Horia!
A must for everyone!

A fantastic week, in a beautiful landscape, with varied tracks where everyone can find his pleasure. Together with a top-notch organization that deserves its kudos in all aspects.
I can only recommend, don’t hesitate and go for the Transylvanian Bonanza trails!

DON’T HESITATE TO GO BIKING IN ROMANIA

Romania may not be the first country that comes to mind when you want to go biking, but this is unjustified.
It has everything for an unforgettable ride and the country is still authentic. The Carpathians will challenge you enough, whether it’s uphill or downhill. (In my case downhill 🙂 ).

Mtb Tours is a good bike partner. I have nothing to say about the organization.They communicate well (English) and are flexible. Adjustments are possible on the spot, depending on the weather, condition of the participants, etc.
Our Guide Horia spiced up our trip, he is friendly, helpful, pleasant company and a skilled biker.

Romania is a beautiful country with friendly people. Visit also Bucharest ! I will definitely go back to discover more of the country.
