The epic Transfagarasan is very tough but at the same time is a well sought-after road cycling tour. It was developed as a throwback to the good old days when even the classic tours where more about adventure than they were about racing. The idea is to head out to explore two of the most iconic rides you can find in Europe with minimal support. It's all about steep climbing, beautiful hairpins turns and heart pumping descents.
The total length of this tour is around 500 kilometers, with more than 7.000 meters elevation gain. You will ride two iconic roads in Europe: the Transfagarasan and the Transalpina. Stunning views, exciting descents, everything at heights of more than 2.000 meters.
