Itinerary

Day 1 – Sachiz Village

Saschiz is home to a Fortified Church, part of UNESCO Heritage, and a Saxon fortress from the 14th century with 9m high defense walls and the Peasants’ Fortress located on a hill overlooking the village. We’ll visit these places and learn about the area while enjoying some very nice bike trails, sun & sweat – a great mix for an adventurous day trip in Transylvania’s countryside!

Overnight in Cloasterf

We then travel to the nearby village of Cloasterf, which is also part of the Saxon heritage. We say hello to villagers and lovely ladies on our way (cows!) before settling in our overnight accommodation – a village house restored into a charming guesthouse. A delicious dinner awaits, with traditional dishes and products from the area!


Day 2 – Viscri Village   

Viscri is probably the most representative and popular Saxon village in Transylvania. Tourist crowds are discouraged by bad roads leading to it, but bikers won’t have a problem! It’s a place untouched by modern civilization, where life is peaceful and stress-free, food is delicious, and the quiet nature is a well-deserved break from busy city life. HRH Prince Charles came here, fell in love with the place, and bought 2 village houses – so why shouldn’t you?

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.

I’m from Brasov and I wanted to try the Blue Line in Postavaru for some time. Some friends from Brasov recommended Massif Experience to me, I was lucky with a cancellation and found an instructor for the next day. Until then, I had been on XC trails quite a lot, but I had not yet tried a more enduro trail.

Well, in a 4-hour session with Ciprian Popescu I managed to do several descents. If I were walking alone, I would probably make a descent on foot and leave the puddle :). The technical advice related to the position on the bike, cornering, braking, etc. were very well explained.

In general, I don’t write reviews unless the experience was “wow!” and in my case it really was!

Thank you Ciprian & “Massif Experience”, keep in touch!

Many thanks Massif . Keep the good work

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’ !

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!
