Short description

Do you like to ride in natural surroundings? Do you like challenges? Then this tour is for you!
Riding on an amazing terrain between pastures and dense forests you can enjoy the true pleasure of mountain biking. On forest or cart roads, with ascents and descents, with lighter or heavier slopes, the Eastern Carpathians offer you all the conditions for an unforgettable tour. The closeness of nature, the varied route designed by a professional guide, and the wonderful view wing us to an enchanted world.
Our tour starts from Baile Balvanyos, where we discover the natural rarities of the Ciomad Mountains, part of the wonderful Eastern Carpathians, abounding in natural treasures. We start our tour with visiting the Apor Daughters’ Bath, where we learn about natural springs, then we take photos at the Bixad panorama. On a hidden road we cycle on the southern edge of the crater, then on a side road we descend to the volcanic Saint Anne Lake. After a short rest, we take a tour around the lake, then see the botanical rarities from  Mohos Peat-Bog nature reserve. During our tour, we will cycle on forest roads and on low-traffic public roads, therefore we recommend this tour for families with toddlers or children taller than 150 cm.

Guidance, rental of Cube AIM SL 29 MTB bikes and bicycle helmets are included.

Testimonials

Very professional, highly recommend: For two days I did some activities like a mountain bike descent into an old volcano with a spectacular lake below, watching bears, everything very professional, highly recommend (Ofer from Israel, 2019)

Wonderful nature and animal experience: We spent a couple of great days in Harghita county! Our nice and very kind guide had organised an exiting bike tour for us through the forest. He showed us not only the wonderful St. Anna lake, but also a rare volcanic lake, explaining very well the characteristics of fauna and flora. He led us to a very special Natura 2000 habitat area in Ciomad-Balvanyos, where we tasted the water from rare sulphur springs. (Lydia from Belgium, 2019)
