Passing through : Cornatel - Rosia - Vurpar - Nocrich - Altana - Hosman - Cornatel
After a 20 minutes car transfer to Cornatel, we will start riding and will pass through the village of Rosia, where we can visit the fortified church.
From Rosia, weâ€™ll keep on riding to Vurpar on a quiet and green path, through fields worked by local villagers.
To get to Nocrich, we'll climb one of these hills between the two villages.
Our efforts will be rewarded with beautiful landscapes, flocks of sheep and dozens of different singing birds.
During the second part of the day, we'll ride on asphalt. Our first stop will be at the Interethnic Museum of Hartibaci Valley in Altana.
The local ethnographic collection has more than 1,000 objects, amassed over the course of 12 years from 25 different settlements, from all over the Hartibaciu Valley.
It brilliantly succeeds at bringing together the most relevant cultural assets of Romanian, Hungarian, Saxons and Roma ethnic groups.
On our way back to Cornatel, weâ€™ll stop again in Hosman and visit the Old Mill from the village.
The complex includes a mill, a forgery, a bakery, a local products store and a cultural shed. Each summer, it welcomes young visitors with a stunning garden and delicious pies.

Private and tailor-made cycling trips in Transylvania
The best things Transylvania can offer are magical nature, cultural heritage and local people that still live and work their land with traditional methods.
We strongly believe you can't have an authentic experience in a big group, that's why we focus on small ones of 2 to 6 people. We offer one day trips, totally custom tours or self guided ones perfectly tailored to your interests. Tourism is not developed in rural areas of Romania, and our goal is to address this matter in a way it supports local communities and help them grow in the right direction.
