Turda Gorge is a natural wonder with skyscraper rocks, caves, and cold water river, situated at 30 km distance from Cluj-Napoca. It’s a favorite place for a biking tour in Romania, the best place for rock climbers and home of many protected birds and plants. We will pass with our bikes besides the forest, across fields, then on quiet roads through villages. The tour through the canyon is beautiful.It is very flexible with coffee stops, photo stops, rests, chatting time, etc. It is a great biking day in Romania, with good quality bike and equipment.

Cluj Napoca - Micesti - Deleni - Petrestii de Jos - Sancraiu - Turda - 30 km
We start out our cycling tour from the western side of Cluj and for the first 10 km, we are following beautiful forest roads where beech-woods and pine-groves vary each other. Passing the forests and getting to the field, we are welcomed by a nice panorama and an enjoyable downhill.
We are going to cycle through villages and unpaved dirt roads until we get to the canyon's upper entrance. We will cross the canyon, with its walls reaching 200 m along the Heat River, and cross some suspension bridges.
Leaving the 3 km long Turda Gorge, we will continue cycling towards Turda, where a fantastic underground world is awaiting us, the Salina Turda, the most amazing former salt mine in Romania.
It is the coolest underground place in the world, according to Business Insider. Boating, underground Ferris-wheel, and other fun surprises are waiting for us.
