This was our second motorcycle trip to Romania at all, but first in the Spring time – at the beginning of May. In 9 days we’ve ridden to the Romania Transalpina, Transfagarasan, the Bicaz Gorge, as well as the quite underrated Transrarau and Maramures county, to see those nature gems in the new perspective – still a little covered in snow and not so crowded with tourists.
Some roads were fully passable, some were not, as sometimes the highest alpine roads are not ready for the drivers even until June or August!
Even if you would pass the road blockades with the motorcycle on your own responsibility (and your own readiness to pay a ticket), the snow won’t let you go any further ;)
But we were anyway happy and we returned home soaked with awesome sights and wish for more :)
Apart from the unique views, hidden offroad roads and many hike opportunities, the Romanian people are really super friendly. Also if you’re up for camping, even in the wild – you will find lots of spots there to pitch up the tent. We’ve done it in few places without any problem. And even if you’ve already visited Romania, we think it’s worthwhile to come back there and see it in the Spring bloom. This is not the same experience as when going there in the peak of the tourists season.
