Overview

This touring experience will see us exploring and riding the two highest paved roads in Romania. Thanks to making an appearance on Top Gear in 2009, the Transfagarasan Highway is classed as one of the best mountain roads in the world, with its astonishing hairpin bends and steep slopes, enveloped in stunning scenery. Equally as mind-blowing, and running parallel to the Transfagarasan Highway, is the Transalpina Highway. It is the highest road in the country, so just as worthy of equal acclaimed status. This mountain passage covers 90 miles of stunning views of valleys and alpine scenery, with the most spectacular section being the Urdele Pass, as you ride by the peak of the Papusa Mountain. All meals are included, with breakfast and dinner served at the hotel. We will make lunch stops en route, at hand-picked locations, during our riding days. You will be joined by several motorcycle racing stars, who will be your guides and hosts throughout your experience. Our tour itinerary gives you the opportunity to socialise in a relaxed atmosphere with like-minded motorcycle enthusiasts and our down-to-earth racing professionals.

Highlights

Transylvania

Transylvania

We will be exploring the region of Transylvania, as part of this epic tour experience. An area known for its mountainous landscape, medieval towns, and gothic castles. Described as the ‘last truly medieval landscape in Europe’, it gives the illusion of stepping back in time. Surrounded by lush green forests and wildflower meadows, it will be a colourful and contrasting backdrop to your two-wheeled exploration, in comparison to the days we ride the high-altitude highways.

Luxury hotel

Luxury hotel

Our Woodcote promise is to select the finest, luxurious five-star hotels to be your residence throughout the experience. We believe that enjoying the time you spend off your bike is just as important as time spent out riding, so our tour itinerary allows for plenty of time to indulge in the local surroundings, views, hotel facilities, and cuisine. All clients will have a double room as standard, so your residence for the entire experience will be comfortable and spacious.

Tales from the Track

Tales from the Track

For one evening during your experience our professional hosts, from the world of motorcycle racing, will give you an insight into their life and adventures on track, with our “Tales from the Track” talk and Q&A.

Expect an evening of fascinating, informative circuit stories, funny anecdotes, and a behind-the-scenes insight into what goes on in the paddock.
