Road trip routes
Aiud - Rimetea - Buru
Tarmac: in general good condition, some waves
70 - 90 km/h
The route starts in Aiud and it follows upstream the river Aiud. First part of the road passes through the periphery of the town and then through a few villages. Once we exit the village called Poiana Aiud, the road goes through the Valisoarei Gorge and the landscape becomes impressive: on both sides of the road there are big and massive cliffs, creating a wide rock corridor. This gorge is quite short, around 1,5km.
Once we passed this narrow valley we came to the village of Rimetea which is famous because of its traditional white painted houses.
On last kilometers of this route, the scenery slowly changes becasue we are entering the Apuseni mountains.
