Carpathian Epic Trails

Carpathian Epic Trails

La crème de la crème, the best of the best trails from our playground.

Itinerary

La crème de la crème, the best of the best trails from our playground.
For more than 15 years we searched, rode and tested the most epic trails in this part of the Carpathian Mountains.
We invite you to have a taste of our finest selected menu.
We will ride into the wild Călimani Mountains, the mysterious Borgo mountains, the impressive Rodnei Mountains and the archaic region of Bucovina.
But, all this comes with a price. Due to the relative distance between the rides, we will have to do a couple of hours transfer by car from one location to another.
We will do mostly round tours, starting and ending in the same place. There will be no shuttle services for the uphill sections. Our legs will do the job.
This tour is designated for experienced and trained riders, who are familiar with tough and long climbs, followed by technical descents on single trails and rock paths.
The difficulty level will be: Fitness 4 of 5 Skill Advanced
If you think the climbs will be to much for you than our Carpathian Enduro tour might be the choice for you. This tour will take place in general in the same areas, but includes shuttle services for the uphills.
Also, if this tour might be to challenging or you prefer to ride from one location to another then check our North Transylvania, Wild and Wellness or Training Tour and choose a trip that suits your needs.

Sergi, BarcelonaIt’s been such a great trip. Everything was perfect. We enjoyed a lot the experience, not only for the routes and places where we stayed, but for our guide Calin, who was a great person and always willing to help.
