E-bike – Discovery TourMake a reservation
Many people may think of Transylvania and the fortified churches, but they do not know the hidden beauties. That’s why we come up with an eco-friendly, sustainable and innovative replica – an authentic electric-assisted bicycle tour.
The best recommendation of our tours is the Discovery tour.
Get out of the classic circuit of fortified churches and discover the unique nature around the village of Mercheașa. One of the largest pastures with secular oaks in Europe is waiting for you, where we meet the oldest living creature in Transylvania, the Elder of the Carpathians, the 930-year-old oak.
The series of discoveries continues with the Racoș Geological Complex where we learn about the past and see the remains of a volcano, admire the Emerald Lake and understand the geology through the Basalt Columns.
We offer you a light tour in Transylvanian style, with various stops and discussions, together with your local guide who puts his shoulder to the development of these objectives and who knows the details of life in the village. Many other local, authentic objectives but also interesting stories and legends await you at Mercheașa, in our most beautiful tour.
Or, if you want, come and find out why a mountain guide moves away from the mountains of Brașov to Mercheașa.
