The Transfagarasan's construction began in 1970 and took four years. This road was intended to be a military route across the Carpathians. Because of the high altitude (2042 meters  above sea level), this road is only open 3 months every year. Even so, you may still encounter walls of snow on the side of the road in the middle of summer.

In conclusion, the road was perfectly built, a ribbon of bends, thrill and excitement.

Transfagarasan Road connects Transylvania with Valahia. Also the road crosses Fagaras Mountains and has become a Mecca for motorbike riders all over the World.

Cross this amazing road, considered the best in the world by the hosts of Top Gear, and return to Turda in the evening.

Transfagarasan Facts:

  • 90 km long
  • up to 2042 m in altitude
  • over 5 km serpentine
  • over 80 hairpin curves
  • 5 tunnels
  • over 500 small bridges.

Advice for European people traveling abroad

Check what travel documents you'll need to cross the border into another EU country.

Find out what documents you need for your spouse, children or other relatives if they are not EU nationals.

When travelling to or from a non-Schengen country, like Romania, you must show a valid ID or passport. Before travelling, check what documents you must have to travel outside your home country and to enter the non-Schengen country you plan to visit.


Documents for minors travelling in the EU

In addition to their own valid travel document (passport or ID card), if Romanian minors are travelling accompanied only by an adult other than their parents/legal guardian(s), they must have written consent to travel signed by both parents and/or legal guardian(s) and certified by a notary.

This consent must state:

  • the itinerary
  • the dates of the journey
  • the identification of the accompanying adult

The accompanying adult must present:

  • the above mentioned consent signed by both parents
  • an extract of their own judicial record
  • if applicable, the documents proving the quality of the person (e.g. a flight attendant) designated by the transport company

If they are travelling with one of their parents, they must show written consent (certified by a notary) from the other parent allowing them to leave the country. This consent is not necessary if the accompanying parent can prove:

  • that custody of the minor was granted by a court
  • that the other parent is deceased
  • that the other parent has been declared as missing or their parental rights have been revoked

Minors can leave Romania without presenting the declaration, even where there is no consent from either of the parents or the legal guardian, if:

  • the minor Romanian citizen moves to his / her residence to the country of destination
  • the accompanying adult justifies the need for the trip by the fact that the minor is to receive medical treatment which is not possible in Romania and without which his/her life or health would be in serious danger. This must be backed up by documentary evidence, either issued or endorsed by the Romanian medical authorities, stating the time period and state(s) where the treatment is to take place.
  • the accompanying adult justifies the need for the trip by the fact that the minor is travelling for educational purposes or to participate in an official competition. This must be backed up by documentary evidence stating the time period and the state(s) where the minor will study or compete.

Other than their own valid travel document, no particular extra official authorization is required for minors of other EU countries to enter Romania.

Package travel and linked travel arrangements

As a holidaymaker booking a package holiday and/or linked travel arrangements, you benefit from a high level of consumer protection under EU rules. If you buy a package, you have well-defined rights before and throughout the booking process, and up until your holiday ends, for example the right to pre-contractual information, the organiser's liability for the proper performance of travel services included in your package and insolvency protection. These rights apply to packages purchased online or face-to-face, from a tour operator, travel agent, or any other trader that is acting as the organiser of the package.

Package travel – different types of packages give you the same rights

When you book a package holiday, you buy a combination of two or more different types of travel services for the same trip or holiday. These services can include transport, accommodation, car hire, or under specific conditions any other tourist service. Your package may be pre-arranged – consisting of a number of services combined by a tour operator or travel agent – or you may have a more customised package by choosing the services yourself before the contract is concluded. In both cases, EU rules apply as long as your travel package was purchased in a certain way.

What is package travel?
Your travel is considered as a package when:

1. You book travel services put together by or with the help of a trader, such as a tour operator or an online or offline travel agency under a single contract


2. You book travel services under separate contracts with individual providers and one of the following conditions is met:

you buy services at a single point of sale (such as a travel agency, a call centre or a website) and you select the services before agreeing to pay, i.e. before you conclude the first contract. This is the case, for example, where different travel services are put into a shopping basket or are otherwise selected before a contract is concluded.

  • the services are sold to you at an inclusive or total price
  • the services were advertised/sold as a "package" or similar
  • travel services are combined after the conclusion of a contract under which you are entitled to choose from a selection of different travel services, for example a travel package gift box

Click-through package: you buy services from separate travel companies through a linked online booking process where the first company transmits your name, email address and payment details to the second company and the second contract is concluded within 24 hours of the first contract

A combination of a travel service, such as accommodation, and another tourist service, such as a guided tour, admission to a concert or sports event, or rental of sports equipment, can only be classed as a package if the other tourist service accounts for 25% or more of the overall value of the trip, or if that service is an essential feature of the trip.

Package travel – your right to clear and accurate information
Before you book a package, the point of sale (booking website or app for example) or your travel agent must give you all the standard information about the package, such as the:

  • travel destination (itinerary, dates and duration of the stay, details of any transfers, visits or excursions) and a list of services included
  • name and contact details of the organiser of the package and, where it is sold through a retailer, of the retailer
  • total price, inclusive of all taxes and where applicable all additional fees, and the payment arrangements
  • information on how to terminate the contract before the start of the package on payment of an appropriate termination fee

Information on passport and visa requirements

Information on complaint-handling procedures, alternative dispute resolution (ADR) mechanisms and, where appropriate, the ADR entity, and the online dispute resolution platform
You should also receive clear information on your rights, based on an EU standardised form, explaining that you have been offered a package and outlining your rights.


Package travel - changes to or termination of the contract

Price increase: The organiser may increase the price of the package only if specific costs rise (for example, fuel prices). This must be clearly explained in the contract and cannot be applied any later than 20 days before the start of the package. If the price increase is more than 8% of the total price of the package, you have the right to end the package contract without a termination fee.

If you cannot travel you may:

  • Transfer the package to another person: under certain conditions, you can transfer your package to another person, although you can be charged a reasonable fee for this, up to the actual cost incurred by the organiser to transfer your package travel contract.
  • Terminate the contract: the organiser may however deduct a reasonable fee from your refund, depending, in particular, on the timing of your cancellation.

These rights are independent of any rights you may have under a cancellation insurance policy that you have taken out.

Cancellation by the organiser: Under normal conditions, if the organiser cancels the sale before the start of your package, you are entitled to a refund and compensation, where appropriate.

Cancellation in exceptional circumstances: If a natural disaster occurs or if there are serious security problems at your holiday destination that are likely to affect the package, the organiser may cancel the package. As a traveller, you are also free to cancel your package free of charge for the same reasons. In these cases, you are entitled to a full refund of any payments you've made but you are not entitled to additional compensation.


Package travel – liability for proper performance of travel services

The organiser is responsible for the proper performance of all travel services included in your package.

If a travel service can't be provided as agreed, for example if a provider can't carry out an agreed service or can't do so in the agreed form (such as providing transport to or from your destination, providing the agreed type of accommodation, or carrying out a guided tour that you booked), the organiser has to resolve the problem at no extra cost to you.

If it is impossible to make alternative arrangements or you reject the arrangements offered to you on valid grounds, and the package includes your transport (such as air travel), the organiser must offer to repatriate you. If the travel services do not reach the agreed standards and this cannot be resolved on the spot, you may also be entitled to compensation.

Package travel - assistance to travellers
If you get into difficulty during your package holiday, for example if you have health problems or lose your passport, the organiser has to give you assistance, such as information on health services or on consular assistance, and should help you find alternative travel arrangements if necessary.

Liability for booking errors
These rules apply to packages and LTAs.

When you book a holiday, the responsible trader (the travel agent or online travel agency) is liable if any of the following occurs during the booking process:

  • technical defects in the booking system
  • errors made by the retailer if they are responsible for arranging the booking of a package or of travel services which are part of linked travel arrangements
  • Traders are not responsible for any booking errors made by you, or problems which are deemed unavoidable or are due to extraordinary circumstances.

Protection in case of bankruptcy
These rules apply to package travel and LTAs.

If the trader you booked your holiday with goes bankrupt, you are protected by insolvency protection. This can be a fund, an insurance or any other mechanism in place in your EU country. This will refund any payments you may have made and will, if required, repatriate you if transport was included in your package

  1. Joe MC:

    Day tour of Transfagarasan
    Claudia and Alex were my guides for one of the most memorable vacations I’ve ever had.
    Not only were they extremely welcoming and kind people, they are very knowledgeable about the history of the area but they love to ride!
    They will allow you to ride at your pace, if that be fast and exciting or slow and leisurely.
    I will hopefully return to do one of the extended tours they offer.

  2. Chris O’Hara:

    You have got to ride this road when in Romania.
    It is amazing!
    So many road bends, fantastic.

  3. John Silverstone:

    When you want to take part in an adventure you want to know you will be taken care of and Transylvania Live did that.
    Superb support – an extremely experienced, confident and knowledgeable tour host who made a great day happen.
    Really loved it. Deserves 5 stars.
