Transalpina (latin for “across the mountains”) is the highest road in Romania - passing through valleys and plateaus, the road reaches its highest point at 2,145m altitude, offering not only breathtaking views but also unique driving experiences.
It stretches right through the Parang mountains on National Road 67, from Novaci to Sebes, and was previously known as ‘The Devil’s Pathway” as it used to be just a steep path, wild and not fully paved and suitable for normal traffic.
Due to its spectacular settings, Transalpina road is a must for adventure lovers - it is the host of numerous events such as the Transalpina Bike Fest, the Transalpina Winter Bike, the Porsche Adventure Tour of Romania or the Mercedes-Benz Chasing Stars adventure and the area recently opened up ski resorts.
