Get the opportunity to experience the best road in the world according to Top Gear. This one day tour from Bucharest will take you on the famous Transfăgărășan Road stopping along the way to all of the most important landmarks. Prepare for spectacular mountain views, delicious local food and even a medieval fortress that is connected to Dracula.


Transfăgărășan Road is just a couple of hours away from busy Bucharest but the road is anything but boring. You’re in for a road trip that will create memories to last a lifetime.

The first stop is Curtea de Argeș town, the burial place of the royal Romanian family and home to one of the most beautiful cathedrals in Romania, Curtea de Arges Cathedral. It is said that during its construction a woman was encased in its walls. Fact or legend? Your experienced friendly guide will tell you all about it.

Moving on you’ll find yourself looking up to the impressive Poienari Citadel, a medieval fortress perched high in the mountains. The 1480 steps that take you to it will be the perfect opportunity to learn about its connection to Dracula and to have a panoramic view of the incredible surroundings.

The road to Transfăgărășan will then take you along the banks of Vidraru Lake Dam, the highest built dam in Romania. You’ll want to have your camera ready; the beauty of this place should not be missed.

You are now finally on the famous Transfăgărășan road with its winding highway and its hairpin turns taking you deep into the heart of the highest mountains of Romania and passing the exquisite Capra Waterfall. This is not just an alpine road; it’s a destination in itself.

The final stop is the magical place of Bâlea Lake, a glacial valley dominated by the crystal clear water of a glacial lake and a beautiful mountain chalet. This is the highest point of Transfăgărășan road and the perfect spot to take a break and enjoy some of the delicious local food followed by a pleasant walk surrounded by mountains or relaxing by the lake.

After all that adventure, your guide will take you back to your hotel in Bucharest or any other location in the city.

Please take note that the Transfăgărășan Road is open only between July and October.
