Moments to expect in the 2-day mountain bike trip near Brasov:

Day 0 - Brasov

Day 0 - Brasov

Day 1: Libearty Bear Sanctuary & Piatra Craiului Natural Park

Libearty Bear Sanctuary is the biggest brown bear sanctuary in Europe hosting over 70 bears found suffering in small, rusty cages, used as pets and attractions for circuses and other unethical animal activities. The sanctuary is not a zoo but an area designed to protect the animals - and we learn more about that! Next, we start our biking ascent to Curmătura Hut (1470 m) through the wonderful Zărneşti Gorge. After lunch, we descend through meadows and pine forests to the picturesque village of Magura and admire in the distance Bran (Dracula) Castle!

We’ll enjoy a traditional lunch-with-a-stunning-view of Bucegi and Piatra Craiului mountains and then ride in the mountains for the rest of the day before we return to Brasov for a cold beer (or drink!).
