The right number of like-minded travellers to make new friends.
Your dates. Your group. Our expertly-designed itinerary.
Tailored to your interests, a bespoke travel experience.
Combines the hallmarks of any B&R itinerary (excellent hotels and beautiful routes) with the freedom of pacing each day exactly the way you like.
Throughout the day, a knowledgeable local guide provides insider access and expert tips. At night, you can explore and dine on your own.
Our B&R guides are with you throughout, anticipating needs, translating languages, providing advice and—above all—facilitating fun.
We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.
These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.
“I can’t say I really ‘work out,’ but I’m in good shape and am relatively active.”
“I enjoy a good walk or ride, and feel comfortable while on the move.”
“I get moving at least once a week, and don’t mind a little sweat.”
“I get moving a few times per week and enjoy some exertion.”
“I want to feel invigorated each day and going hard is how I like to do that.”
A Transylvanian adventure
We’re the only ones riding Romania’s idyllic landscapes and exploring its historic towns. Delve deep into a corner of ancient Europe where traditional trades still reign. Creature comforts abound too, like the renowned resto-hotel Valea Verde, where chef Jonas Schäfer joins us for dinner.
Note: Some departures operate on a slightly different itinerary.

Day by Day
In Brasov, take a guided walk amid the city’s medieval alleyways and well-preserved Saxon architecture. After, we'll change into our biking gear for our first ride through the forested countryside.
We’ll strike out along the quiet country roads for Miclosoara, the oldest settlement in Transylvania. We'll take a look inside the castle of Count Kálnoky before an easygoing pedal back to our hotel for some downtime.
Pedal along the Olt River, passing through frozen-in-time towns like Vârghis and Dacia, before arriving in Viscri: a small settlement recognized by UNESCO, with whitewashed walls that sit beneath thatched roofs.
We’ll depart Sighisoara, stopping first in Malâncrav, which is home to the largest population of Saxon origin in Transylvania. We'll visit a local embroidery workshop before pausing for a picnic lunch.
Today we’ll cycle directly from the hotel to a wine tasting at Villa Vinèa. This afternoon’s ride will return us to Cund to enjoy the bucolic surroundings on a guided forest walk.
After our morning ride, we’ll head for lunch in a 13thC citadel. Depending on your plans, we will drop you off at the airport for a flight to western Europe, a local hotel or arrange a private car back to Bucharest.

We never wanted to be the biggest travel company in the world, just the best.
— George Butterfield
B&R does it right in every way; from the hotels, routes, tours, variety and especially the guides! They even manage to find the hidden treasures and people unavailable to the typical tourist. You could never design a better trip for yourself, no matter what your budget, then the people at B&R can do for you.— Kristin Turner
The riding in Romania is generally moderate, with sections along valley floors linked by the occasional climb. Limited long options are also available.
“I ride my bike once or twice a month and am comfortable on two wheels.”
Relatively flat but will include inclines and the occasional climb or two.Read more on our Activity Levels
