Tour starts with private pick-up from your hotel.

At 8:00 a.m. we will start our journey towards the Fagaras Mountains, some of the most massive and beautiful mountains in Romania, also named the Transylvanian Alps.

Our first stop will be in the town named Curtea de Arges, at the bottom of the Fagaras Mountains, where we will visit one of the most remarkable monasteries in Romania.

Due to its beautiful and original architecture and also to its huge historical and cultural importance, this monastery attracts every year thousands of tourists and pilgrims.

Now we continue our tour to the northern regions of Arges Country and step into the marvelous landscape of the mountains.

Here we make a new stop at the foot of the Poenari Citadel, a stronghold that became famous thanks to Dracula’s Legend.

After a short stop, we enter Romania’s most beautiful road, named by Top Gear “the best road in the world”, the Transfagarasan, second-highest road in Romania.

The road reaches his highest point of 2034 m at the Balea Lake, after passing through Romania’s longest road tunnel, the Capra Tunnel.

Here we will have an hour and a half break to enjoy the beauty of this place. We have numerous possibilities:

  •  Cable car trip between Balea Lake and Balea Waterfall
  •  Lunch in one of the chalets or picnic
  •  Hike around this beautiful area

With our batteries full charged we will now drive back to Bucharest, spending the last few hours together in an enjoyable environment, discussing about what we saw, watching the photos and listening to rewarding music.

Excellent beautiful views
We had a fantastic guide who was very friendly and was happy to stop where we wanted. We had asked to be dropped at the airport after and he did so in ample time which was great. The road is absolutely stunning with so much to see and I really recommend anyone that does it! We did it yesterday (15th August 2016) for my husbands birthday and he had such a great day. We had an amazing lunch at the restaurant by the lake. I thoroughly recommend this too! I really hope if you do it you get the driver we did he was lovely!!

Transfagarasan Road also named the Transylvanian Alps was a very nice place to visit for one weekend day, we saw many places, such as: Curtea de Arges Monastery, Poenari Citadel- famous thanks to Dracula’s Legend, Vidraru Lake, Balea Lake, beautiful Fagaras Mountains views. The road reaches his highest point of 2034 m at the Balea Lake, after passing through Romania’s longest road tunnel, the Capra Tunnel. Everybody should visit this unique road, which is one of the highest ones in Romania! We had the trip organized and included : transport from Bucharest , English speaking guide. We took a lot of pictures to remember the places we liked the most! Visit Transfagarasan!

Andre and Gabriel were amazing! personable, knowledgeable and just plain nice.
The landscape is gorgeous. The length and curvature of Transfaragasan’s road is impressive. This trip is must do.
