About this activity
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Transfagarasan Highway, Dn 7C Sibiu and Arges County, Curtea de Arges 115300 Romania

We start driving the scenic Transfagarasan road in the morning and head to its iconic high-altitude landscapes. The winding road takes us to the highest point (2,042 meters), to the beautiful glacial Balea Lake (2,034 meters) and to Capra Waterfall, our final point.

Built during the communist regime, Transfagarasan was considered a strategic road between Transylvania and Southern Romania.

Its overwhelming landscapes have transformed it, however, into one of the most important tourist attractions of Romania. Crossing the highest part of the Carpathians, the construction of the Transfagarasan required an enormous amount of work and planning. Its story is fascinating and you'll discover it during this day trip.

Duration: 4 hours

Stop At: Carta Monastery, 105D, Carta 557070 Romania

On the way back to Sibiu, we stop in Carta to visit the ruins of the only Cistercian monument in Romania. Dating from the troubled medieval centuries, the Abbey from Carta was once the main center of the powerful Cistercian order in the Transylvanian space.

Duration: 40 minutes
