E-bikes are an exciting new opportunity to explore the mountains in an environmentally friendly manner. It is more than a bicycle since the pedal-assistance helps you drain less energy so you can focus on the amazing natural habitat around you.
We have a great number of trails from beginner to expert level which last from 1 day trips to week-long experiences. Our trips include local cheese and wine tasting, bear watching, historical sightseeing (based on the route and your group's request.).
We're taking care of the necessary equipment; you just need to bring proper clothing with you.
Group-size: 2-10 person

Bear wathching and sheephold tour in Ivo valley:
What comes to your mind first about Transylvania? Maybe the bears? Or sheepholds, mountain pastures, flocks of sheep or the fresh cheese?
During our electric bicycle tour we'll present two of the most popular programs among visitors of Szeklerland, bearwatching and sheephold visit.
The tradition of nomadic livestock farming is still alive in Transylvania. On this tour you have the chance to visit a traditional transylvanian sheephold and taste the locally made fresh cheese. The sheephold is the summer residence of the sheeps at the foot of the mountain. According to the old tradition, on the day of St. George, the shepherds cast the animals on the mountain pastures and stay with them until the day of St. Michael. The animals are grazing freely, being milked twice a day. After tasting the freshly made cheese, we continue our tour cycling through the woods into the valley of Ivó, then heading towards the Zetelaka dam.
