Events and Ecotourism
The European Nature Trust is directly involved with many events and activities – ecotourism, awareness raising and fundraising are integral to our work.
Transylvanian Bike Ride
Every year, TENT hosts the Transylvanian Bike Ride where international guests enjoy a week-long trip through Romania’s ancient forests and medieval villages. It is green, adventure tourism at it’s very best.
– GREEN ECOTOURISM AT ITS VERY BEST
One hundred percent of all the funds raised from the event are directed at our Regatul Salbatic initiative. Last year alone we raised enough money to buy, develop and run our second mobile education unit.
– RIDING THROUGH TRANSYLVANIA
‘I wanted to take some time out of my life (and the office) to do something to protect the Romanian wilderness. It has felt great to react to this important issue and make a difference.’
– PAUL BUCKLEY
– TRANSYLVANIAN RIDERS 2016
We are also partnered with other sporting events, including the Transylvanian Bear Race – an international marathon and ultramarathon through transylvanian.
The race begins in the village of Viscri and takes runners through pristine forests, Saxon villages, citadels, fortified churches and culminates in the infamous ascent of the Sighisoara citadel. It is a journey through one of Europe’s last remaining genuine wildernesses and an unforgettable experience.
2018 dates coming soon!
