According to your preference, we can stop for lunch along the way - I know some good spots.
The weather changes a lot in the mountains so, we suggest proper equipment: sun hat, umbrella, rain coat, sport shoes or trekking shoes.
At request, we can also organise a short trekking tour, up in the mountains.
Built by the communists as an access road across the Carpathian Mts. to link Transylvania with the Southern province of Wallachia, the Transfagarasan Highway is a spectacular scenic road situated in a mountain valley at 2,000m high. Enjoy a ride on the road that Top Hear host Jeremy Clarkson called "the best road in the world."
Built sometime in the 13th century by the Cistercian monks, the Carta fortified abbey is one of the earliest gothic constructions in Transylvania. Located in a splendid setting atop of a hill, you will see its well-preserved ruins and learn about the 800 year old history of this attraction.
At the top of Transfagarasan Highway there is a small glacier lake hidden between the rough edges of Fagaras Mts. With its emerald green waters, there is something special and relaxing about this lake and you will have the chance to admire it and the splendid surrounding views!
