Carpathian MTB Enduro

Deep into the wilderness of Romania lies a magical place that is waiting to be explored.This Carpathian area, located at the intersection of the historical regions of Transylvania, Bucovina and Maramureş is one of the last regions in Europe where lost in time villages, with ancient traditions and customs, and wild and pristine nature is still to be found.
We are in love of these places and happy to show it, being guided by sustainable principles, respecting nature and local communities.
