Trekking and Cycling

Sibiu lies in the southern part of Transylvania, at the bottom of the Carpathians. Therefore, its landscape is quite diversified: mountain chains, hilly areas with such a rich flora and fauna, large fields, glacier lakes, mountain springs, salt lakes.

If you love nature and you are eager to explore by foot or by bike the beautiful areas around Sibiu we invite you to join us! We suggest you some trekking tours in the villages around Sibiu with different stops and short visits . It’s the perfect combination of culture nature, trekking and cycling. How about an open air meal? We can also visit a traditional sheepfold in the mountains and have a picnic on the peak of the mountains – that’s something great, isn’t it?

The tours we suggest are specially tailored according to your wish and they have a low level of difficulty.

These tours can be organized in two different areas:

Cycling tours
Cycling tours

the mountain area (at the bottom of the Carpathian Mountains): we can have a nice relaxing trekking tour in the mountains and stop in some of the picturesque villages for some visits. This area has always been famous for its craftsmen and artisans (some of them still work today), for its customs and traditions very well preserved even today, for animal breeding (the famous traditional sheepfolds up in the mountains) and, of course, for its delicious cuisine.

the Saxon area (in the northern part of our county): during the centuries this was an area where used to live the former Saxon colonists. They built wonderful villages guarded by imposing fortified churches. Even though most of the Saxons have left, these areas keep on preserving their idyllic atmosphere. We can organize both cycling and trekking tours in this area, combined with different visits and, why not, local food tasting sessions.
