Sardinia Enduro Experience
3 days in Sinaia
Electric MTB Enduro
3 days of splitboarding guided tours, 2 nights accommodation in a newly refurbished mountain chalet, optional local attractions visit.
Any date suitable for custom tours.
Bored of crowded, frozen slopes from the mountain resorts? Haven’t seen the proverbial big powder snow your friends rave about? You once considered trying splitboarding but didn’t get the chance? Well…guess what? We plan a 3 day spliboard trip based at Boarder’s Cottage in Sinaia. Two licensed mountain guides will show you their favorite off piste trails in Bucegi and Baiului Mts.
Tiberiu Macaveiu and Marius Stratila will be our guides and instructors. Why do we need trainers? If you’re a beginner – a few hours of tips & tricks will nudge you in the right direction. Based on the group experience, we will divide the riders into 2 categories – beginners and intermediaries.
4 to 8 persons
Day 1 – Welcome to Bucegi National Park Mtns
On the first day, we will start from our Boarder’s Cottage accommodation in Sinaia and we will have an avalanche search workshop on the slope, where we will test our avalanche rescue equipment, and then assess our riding skills in an accommodation tour on the slopes, then ride down a forest run towards our chalet accommodation. Your compulsory individual gear must include the standard avalanche emergency kit: DVA transceiver, probe and shovel.
Optional, we can stop for dinner at Taverna Sarbului traditional restaurant. Afterwards we shall decide together the schedule for the next two days.
Day 2 – Bucegi Massif Playground (full day)
On the second day, after a consistent breakfast we will start from the chalet in Sinaia and we’l take the gondola lift up to Cota 2000 mountain top.
Than we will approach the routes based on your experience – for those looking for new lines and secret spots, Sinaia is a heaven with numerous places between Bucegi and Baiului mountains. For those who want to learn and progress we have enough time to convince you that splitboarding is your new hobby! We will have the lunch break on the mountain with the goodies from our backpack and we will end the day with a climb about 1 hour on the ridge of the mountain, to make room for an epic long descent, all the way down to the famous Peles castle, from where we have 10 min. walk back to our Boarder’s Cottage accommodation.
Day 3 – Baiului Mtns Backcountry Panorama
The third day is dedicated to the beautiful Baiului mountains, next door neighbors to the Bucegi National Park.
We start the climb in Sinaia and after coming out of the wild forest, we will be greeted by a breathtaking view of the surrounding valleys and mountain ranges. The descent follows the long mellow ridges covered with snow, before ariving back in Sinaia, to the shuttle driving us to our accommodation. After lunch, there is an optional visit to the Sinaia’s Peles Castle, the residency of the Romanian monarchs (15 EUR).
Boarder’s Cottage, newly refurbished mountain chalet with spectacular view over Baiului mountains.
The cottage is positioned in a quiet area of Sinaia and has a panoramic view that you just can’t get enough of. It’s friendly, cozy, with great common areas for socializing, reading or whatever you feel like doing.
It has 4 double rooms, 3 bathrooms, a fully equipped modern kitchen and a large living room where we can watch and review the videos made during the day in the warm atmosphere created by the fireplace.
Being a place created by snowboarding specialists it obviously has a boot dryer.
Located only 10 mins walk to downtown Sinaia facilities, or the same distance to some of the best restaurants in the town.
“Splitboarding and enduro mountain biking 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.”
“Ride the amazing Carpathian back country playground! Feel the wild, untouched nature! Taste the best of the local attractions, culture and history like a local would. That’s the ShredMind way we love to share with our riding partners!”

Discover the Carpathian mountains!
Discover and ride some of the best backcountry lines of Romania. The Carpathian Mountains are among the wildest mountains in Europe. Because backcountry riding 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.

“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. ”
