I'm Silviu Martin and I founded MARTIN ADVENTURES in 2013 as a boutique road cycling tour company based in Transylvania, Romania.
I believe that cycling the Transfagarasan Highway should be on every serious cyclist's bucket list. Our mission is to support you with our unmatched local expertise to deliver the most authentic experience possible.
I'm a licensed travel guide by the Romanian National Travel Authority with the license number 5161 (view license).
In 2017, I'm training for one of the toughest ultra cycling races and definitely his biggest challenge yet, The Transcontinental Race.
WHY MARTIN ADVENTURES
1. STUNNING LOCATIONS to practice road cycling
The Transfagarasan and the Transalpina are our playground. Our local expertise is unmatched and we have selected the most epic routes, the least trafficked roads for our tours. Silviu together with his team of guides are experienced and passionate cyclists and they are always exploring, always on the look out for those spectacular roads we all dream about.
2. AUTHENTIC EXPERIENCE
Everything from the ACCOMMODATION, RESTAURANTS and extra ACTIVITIES are all handpicked so that you get to know the true spirit of Transylvania. We pay extra attention to choosing the appropriate places to crash at the end of a long day. All hotels or guesthouses are carefully selected by our team for location, authenticity and character and are personally and constantly reviewed. Most of them are at least 3* and 4* locations, some with Spa & Pool. At the end of an exhausting day we know you need some pampering.
3. Stellar support
Our guides are first class, local experts that are also fluent in English. They will lead you into this once-in-a-lifetime experience on the Transfagarasan. All our tours are supported by van or in the case of the Transfagarasan Epic with luggage transfer so that you can fully enjoy the experience and just focus on cycling.
