Transfagarasan Highway Tour
Spend the day exploring one of the most famous mountain roads in the world. With spectacular views, the Transfagarasan road takes you above the 2000 m altitude line. Enjoy a break on top of the mountain where a mountain cabin was built at the end of the 1800s for the tired hikers that spent days getting there. The road has an interesting history, being built in the 70s at the orders of the communist leader who wanted to have an extra escape route in case of Soviet invasion. If time allows stop on the way back to Brasov to the watermill in Lisa, a small village at the foothills of the Fagaras Mountains, to experience the traditional way of felting.
We recommend to bring with you some warm clothes, as the top of the road reach the altitude of 2034 m and even in the warmest summer days you can fell the mountain chill.
The price includes:
- Transportation ( 300 km )/Driver/Professional guide
- Free hotel pick-up and drop-off
- This is a private tour/activity. Only your group will participate
