Tour Highlights

// We ride for 6 days straight, no matter rain, sun or snow. The experience will be well worth the effort. Enduro is all about surfing the trails. As such, a shuttle will be assured every day to keep us flexible. But keep in mind that there will be some trails which will make you remember the meaning of the word – Push-Bike. For us, the flow is more important than the amount of sweat, physical endurance is not our purpose. Your only duty will be to ride.

// A professional photographer will take care of your memories.

// Difficulty: Athletic beginner / intermediate. Uphill mostly shuttle assisted. Some trails on this tour do require an high level of technical riding ability. Riders should be in good shape to properly enjoy the tour

// Tour customizable at any time. Special offers for teams, groups, associations and easy riding riders travel partners or custom 2 – 3 days tours. Please contact us for further information.

Itinerary

Day 1 – Brasov

On day 1 we get to know each other. Our team will be waiting for you at the airport and will bring you to Brasov, our hometown. Andreea Herteanu, our local guide will show you the city and then help you find the best places to eat. In the evening we will have a drink and discuss the itineraries for the next days. Finally, time for a good night’s rest to prepare us for the first day of riding.


Day 2 – Ciucas Mountains                

Starting at the base of the mountain, we will make our way up the mountain side for at least three runs. The Ciucas Mtns. were part of the National Enduro Championship, so show us what you got on these technical trails, rider. Their unique conglomerate formations and mystic landscape will hopefully give us enough energy to go for a full day of riding. If not, the shepherd dogs found at the nearby mountain lodges, surely will. 


Day 3 – Piatra Mare Mountains           

We grew up with this mountain. Lines for everybody and full of opportunities: rock climbing, mtb enduro, canyoning, freeride snowboarding and skiing. This ride will offer a great view of Brasov far away in the distance as well as the surrounding mountains and landscape. Depending on the general condition of the group we can do 2 different runs.


Day 4 – Sinaia Bike Park and Freeride Trails

A day consisting of approximately 2200 m negative elevation. We will combine both artificial elements and authentic freeride areas. 3 short runs will warm us up. The rest of the day we will ride down from 2000 m ALT al the way down to Sinaia city and a glorious day ending with a bonfire and camping underneath a magnificent night sky. Our very own astronomy-expert will be eager to share his wisdom about the stars.The night in the camping is optional.     


Day 5 –  Bucegi Mountains

A full day of enduro. The main access is by cable car, followed by a 1,5 hour hike on the Bucegi plateau at 2000 m ALT. We will pass by Omu Peak (2505 m), the highest point in the Bucegi Mountains, enjoying the view and preparing for the 12 km of downhill ride. But remember, you will experience everything that this mountain has to offer: steep valleys, single trails, spruce forests, rock gardens, roots, speed lines, and so on. This day will train your balance more than any other. Optional tour: we will visit one of the most legendary castles in the world: The Bran Castle, said to be the residence of Dracula (10 EUR)


Day 6 –  Postavaru Mountains

The mountain in our backyard, it’s hard not to get emotional. During wintertime, it welcomes us to go snowboard and skiing. In summer, it opens up its trails for our mountain bikes. After 4 days of intense riding we will try to find the perfect path to burn even the last drop of fuel. There are approximately 10 different trails, all with cable car or shuttle access. A whole day of downhill, which will end with a cold beer (or a cold ice cream if you prefer) in the city center.


Day 7 –  Departure Day

For a more dynamic and educative ride to the airport, we will stop for a visit to the Peles Castle. We passed by it on Day 3, but this time we can enter and check out the inside, without wearing helmets and muddy boots this time. Nestled at the foot of the Bucegi Mountains, in the picturesque town of Sinaia, Peles Castle is a masterpiece of German new-Renaissance architecture, considered by many one of the most stunning castles in Europe.

Backup stage 

Even if we figured the perfect plan for you, we cannot predict weather, so this is our Plan B: Bike Park Cheile Gradistei. Although it’s a touristic complex, it has two challenging downhill and enduro trails and a stunning view towards the Bucegi Mtns. The shuttle will take us up, and the spa, wellness treatment and delicious food at Cheile Gradistei Resort will calm us back down.

Marius Stratila

Mountain Guide & MIAS Mountain Bike Leader

Enduro biking and splitboarding are part of me, they define who I am. For me, they are more than just a way to escape crowded and overused resorts. They are a way to push limits and get out of the comfort zone, a way to explore and to discover.

That perfect mix of silence and grandeur that only a mountain can offer, the freedom to climb on your own, to define your route and follow it, the power to use your body strength to move forward and to enjoy downhill rides and fresh turns, no matter what season is out there – this is what defines me and what I want to share. The path is the same, only the texture is different.

Massif Experience has it all: Marius is a good trail connoisseur (knowing exactly where to take you, based on your experience, riding style and terrain preferences), a nice guy whom you can have some valuable chats with during fireroad climbs or lunchbreak, and a terrific trip organizer.
His bike fleet is up to the task and on par with his personal traits that make him one of the best guides in Braşov.
Whether you’re a MTB newbie and want just to coast on some easy trails or a hardcore gravity junkie, looking for some steep gradients and chunky rock gardens, he will surely find a way for you to get acquainted with Braşov’s trail offerings, beautiful surroundings and get that blood pumpin’ !
John Anderson MCPHERSON on google6 months ago
We had a great family e-mountain bike tour. Our guide was friendly, knowledgeable and tailor made the trip according to the ability of our group. If you are visiting Brasov, I recommend this e-biking tour for anyone. It’s a fun and healthy way to see the mountains with great views of the town. The friendly and personalised service was was much appreciated. If you are a beginner or expert, you will have great tour with Massif Experience.

Turul de o zi oferit de Massif Backcountry & Mountain Biking Experience mi-a depăşit complet aşteptările din motive pe care le voi enumera mai jos:
– comunicare foarte bună încă din momentul planificării turei.
– sfaturi practice pentru pregătirea turei: echipament, nutriţie, formă fizică.
– trasee excelente (atât pentru începători, cât şi pentru cei avansaţi), documentate foarte bine.
– ghid foarte bine pregătit, punctual şi cu foarte multă experienţă.

Pe scurt, cred că asta e una dintre cele mai bune activităţi de făcut atunci când eşti în Braşov, mai ales dacă nu cunoşti bine traseele. Ghidul îţi oferă siguranţă, un mic boost de încredere şi acces la nişte poteci geniale!
