​

​

Embark on an exhilarating driving adventure on the TransFagarasan and TransAlpina Highways in Romania, nestled in the unspoiled landscapes of the Carpathian Mountains.

 

In fact, did you know that in 2009, the presenters of TopGear praised the TransFagarasan Road as "the greatest driving road in the world," even ditching the famous Stelvio Pass in Italy?

 

As you drive through deep forests, winding roads past stunning monasteries, and into Transylvania, you'll have the opportunity to visit up to five of Romania's most iconic castles, including the famous "Dracula Castle." Your driving experience will be complete with the luxury sedan or SUV of your choice, programmed GPS for effortless navigation, and top-notch hotels along the way.

​

Head north from Bucharest on the highway towards the Fagarasan Mountains to reach the awe-inspiring 91 KM / 57 Miles TransFagarasan Highway, which reaches its peak at 2042 metres / 6,699 ft.

DAY 3 ▪️ TRANS ALPINA ROAD DRIVE

​

​

Drive south from Sibiu towards another impressive road, the TransAlpina Highway, featuring the winding Urdele Pass at its highest point. The views along the way are breathtaking, and the driving experience is endlessly exciting. This spectacular high road covers an ultra-scenic 148 kilometers (90 miles), with approximately 20 kilometers (12 miles) above 2000 meters (6561 ft) altitude, crossing the Parang Mountains.

 

Although it runs parallel to the famous TransFagarasan, the TransAlpina is often overlooked since the British TV program TopGear didn't promote it when they visited the region, possibly because the road was still being asphalted during their shoot.

​

Visit the open-air museum to learn about the history and life in the Fagarasan Mountains a century ago. Later in the afternoon, arrive at your hotel quietly nestled next to a park.
