Daily schedule

Day 1 - Sinaia Bike Park + Freeride Trails

A day of approx. 2200 negative elevation. We will combine both artificial bike park elements and authentic freeride areas. 2 short runs will warm us up. The rest of the day we will ride down from 2000 m, all the way to Sinaia downtown.

Day 2 - Bucegi Mtns backcountry ride

A full day of enduro. The main access is by cable car, but followed by a 1.5 h climb starting on the Bucegi plateu at 2000 m altitude. We will pass Omu Peak (2505 m), the highest peak of Bucegi Mountains, enjoy the view and prepare for the 12 km of downhill ride. But remember, you will experience everything that this mountain has to offer: steep valleys, single trails, spruce forest, rock gardens, roots (bloody roots), speed lines, and so on. This route will train your balance more than any other. After lunch, there is an optional visit to Bran Castle available (15 EUR), than shuttle transfer back to Sinaia included.

Day 3 - Baiului Mtns backcountry ride

The third day is dedicated to the beautiful Baiului mountains, next side of the valley neighbors to the Bucegi National Park Mountains. We will start out from our accommodation and have a shuttle to Azuga ski resort, taking the cable-car up to the Baiului ridge where we will be greeted by a breathtaking view of the surrounding valleys and mountain ranges. 1,5 hour ascent to the Baiul Mare peak than come the epic 1100 m level descent, that passes by a shepard traditional cottage, before ariving back in Sinaia. After lunch, there is an optional visit available to the Sinaia’s Peles Castle, the former residency of the Romanian monarchs (15 EUR).

Strătilă Marius

Mountain Guide & MIAS Mountain Bike Leader
“Enduro biking and splitboarding are part of me, they define who I am. For me, they are more than just a way to escape crowded and overused resorts. They are a way to push limits and get out of the comfort zone, a way to explore and to discover. That perfect mix of silence and grandeur that only a mountain can offer, the freedom to climb on your own, to define your route and follow it, the power to use your body strength to move forward and to enjoy downhill rides and fresh turns, no matter what season is out there – this is what defines me and what I want to share. The path is the same, only the texture is different.”

Location

Discover the Carpathian mountains!

Discover some of the best enduro trails of Romania. The Carpathian Mountains are among the wildest mountains in Europe. Because mtb is not so popular yet, our country can offer you the freedom western countries have lost years ago. Hidden paths and virgin woods will be on the menu every day. From the steepest valleys, to the deepest forests, the Carpathians will offer a complete range of landscapes even to the most skeptical rider. In case of bad weather, we have really good backup spots up in the mountains which will allow access to safe areas.

“Marius is excellent rider and guide. He took us to beautiful trails and found great restaurants and services for us ”

“Our guide Marius was excellent both in guiding and giving riding tips. He provided a wonderful excursion up into the Carpathian mountains. We went higher than I thought I could ride, and his instructions improved my mountain biking skills, both climbing and descending. What a lovely trip we had! Thank you and I highly recommend this tour. ”
