In the first day we will leave Bucharest and we get to Bicaz Gorge in the evening. On this day we will cross the Carpathians by Bratocea Pass known for motorcyclists simple: "Cheia". Then we can visit the fortress of Prejmer, then we will ride on a beautiful road with perfect asphalt, wide curves and beautiful scenery: road segment between Sfantu Gheorghe and Gheorgheni. Right after we get a little adrenaline climb from Gheorgheni to Red Lake, you can stop for the night.

After passing the lake we will follow the Bistrita valley and then we will cross the Rarau Mountains on one of the most beautiful roads in Romania: Transrarau.

day 3:

The last day will be more relaxing in terms of roads but we have many beautiful places to visit. First one is Sovata with the salt lake, mountain of salt, and the salt the mine. After that we have a beautiful stretch of road, crossing some hills and then get in the german villages with fortified churches. Further we can visit the fortress of Rupea and the old town from Brasov. If you have more time, on Prahova Valley there are many beautiful places to see: Canyon with 7 stairs, Peles Castle, Cantacuzino Castle, Babele, The Sphinx, and more. Unfortunately you can not see them all in one day so you have to decide at only a few.
