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

  • Day 0 - Brasov

    Day 0 - Brasov

    In the evening before we start our trip we meet in Brasov to get to know each other, choose bikes and decide the itinerary! Then you should get a long night's rest and prepare for what's to come in the next 2 days!

  • Day 1: Libearty Bear Sanctuary & Piatra Craiului Natural Park

    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!

  • Day 2: Postavaru Peak & mountain trails

    Day 2: Postavaru Peak & mountain trails

    After a well-deserved rest, we start our second day ready for some adventure: Postavaru Mountain will be our backyard with 10 different trails to choose from, for every rider’s taste! 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!).

  • Overnight at Postavaru Hut

    Overnight at Postavaru Hut

    Perched on the ridge of a mountain plateau at 1604 m, Julius Römer Hut is the go-to spot for all people roaming Postavaru for hiking, mountain biking or ski sports. It has great views, comfortable beds and delicious food!
