Uncover the breathtaking Transfagarasan road and its winding path across the wilderness of the Carpathians, above 2,000 meters altitude. This is the perfect day trip from Sibiu if you want to add to your list one of the must-see attractions of Romania. On the way back to Sibiu, we stop to visit another special site, the ruins of the Cistercian Abbey from Carta. This is a private tour that includes hotel pickup and drop-off.

Pickup from your hotel at 7:30 am to make the best out of the day, but also to avoid summer crowds.

We start driving the scenic Transfagarasan road around 8 am and head to its iconic high-altitude landscapes. The winding road takes us to the highest point (2,042 meters), to the beautiful glacial Balea Lake (2,034 meters) and to Capra Waterfall, our final point.

Built during the communist regime, Transfagarasan was considered a strategic road between Transylvania and Southern Romania. It's overwhelming landscapes have transformed it, however, into one of the most important tourist attractions of Romania. Crossing the highest part of the Carpathians, the construction of the Transfagarasan required an enormous amount of work and planning. Its story is fascinating and you'll discover it during this day trip.

On the way back to Sibiu, we stop in Carta to visit the ruins of the only Cistercian monument in Romania. Dating from the troubled medieval centuries, the Abbey from Carta was once the main center of the powerful Cistercian order in the Transylvanian space.

Return to your hotel in Sibiu around 5 pm.
