Discover the beautiful nearby town of Rasnov on this 60 km bike ride. Start in Brasov and reach Rasnov on secondary roads and trails near the forest. Visit Rasnov’s beautiful city center, discover its famous fortress situated on a hill and explore the beautiful Valea Cetatii cave. Then, a few kilometers away from Rasnov, look up. You will see the Rasnoavei Gorge, a spectacular canyon loved by adrenaline junkies around the world.

Day 1

The tour starts in the morning from Piata Sfatului, Brasov’s main square, situated in the center of the city.

We will cycle on public roads until we reach a gravel road and follow it until we reach an industrial area. Here, we enter a small forest (there might be mud, depending on weather) and exit it on a beautiful plateau from where we have a beautiful panorama over the nearby town of Cristian and the surrounding mountains and hills, including the Piatra Craiului mountains. After a very short descent we will continue our journey on a beautiful road, going through meadows, just near the forest. If we are lucky, we can encounter some cow and sheep herds.

Then, we will go through the ruins of a brick factory and continue to Rasnov on a beautiful and quiet trail. Once we reach Rasnov we take a break at the Sisi Promenade, named after the Empress Elizabeth of Austria. We enter Rasnov and follow its streets, going through the beautiful city center, from where we can see the nearby fortress, situated on a hill just above the city.

If you want, you can visit it for an extra cost of about 3 Euro / 12 Lei. If you don’t want to walk up to it, there is an elevator that can take you up and down for approx. 5 Euro.

After a short but easy climb on a paved road, we have to push our bikes for 5 minutes to reach the entrance to Valea Cetatii cave. The tour inside the cave is about 20-30 minutes long but beware, it pretty chilly inside, so please dress adequately.

After the cave, we head back to Rasnov and cycle on paved roads until we reach a gravel road that will take us through the majestic Rasnoavei Gorge. It is famous among climbers and bungee jumping lovers for the diversity of climbing routes and also for being one of the first bungee jumping places in Romania. After a short break, we can head back to Brasov on our bikes or we can take a train from Rasnov to Brasov.

If you want to eat, there are a couple of restaurants in Rasnov where you can taste authentic Romanian foods but also international ones.
