about the lodge

Apuseni Lodge

We have found the perfect place for our year-round lodge at a high standard in Avram Iancu in the municipality of Vârfurile, Arad district. Avram Iancu is first mentioned in 1390. In addition to Avram Iancu, the municipality of Vârfurile includes the villages of Groşi, Lazuri, Măgulicea, Mermeşti, Poiana and Vidra. The number of inhabitants of the municipality of Vârfurile is currently given as 2,715, which corresponds to a population density of 20 inhabitants per km².

Vârfurile is located at the foot of the Codru Moma Mountains on the Crișul Alb River, 128 km from the district capital Arad. Despite its secluded location in the middle of the hilly foothills of the Apuseni Mountains, Avram Iancu is well connected in terms of infrastructure to the nearby small towns of Vașcău and Ștei with their shops, the large market and even a hospital. Oradea, the county capital of the neighboring district of Bihor, is just 120 km away.

The Apuseni Mountains, from which our lodge takes its name, reach peaks of up to 1800 meters. It forms the northern section of the western Romanian Carpathians.

how to find us

How to find us

The journey usually takes place via Vienna. Drive via Györ past Budapest and Szolnok (Hungary) via the border crossing at Borș to Oradea (Romania) and further via Beiuș, Ștei and Vașcău on the DN76/E76 to Vârfurile. At the roundabout there, turn onto the DN79A and follow the signs "APUSENI LODGE Romania". Link to the route via Vianna

If you possibly want to avoid long waiting times at the border crossing to Romania and drive a more varied route, then you drive to Kecskemét and choose the route via Vărșand to enter Romania. Link to the route Vienna - Vărșand

The inexpensive passenger and vehicle journey from Prague (Czech Republic) to Košice (Slovakia) by train is also worth considering. The fastest connections between the Czech Republic and Slovakia ensure the 'SC Pendolino' train. If you want to relax completely on the trip, choose a night train with lounger and sleep compartments and let your motorcycle ride on the loading bridge. From Košice to us to Avram Iancu you have to drive almost 400 km.

If you are coming from northern Germany, the best way to get to Romania is via the Czech Republic and Slovakia. We are happy to give you individual route recommendations.

Our Lodges

... are located on an idyllic hill with a view of the mountains in the middle of nature with good connections to shops and gas stations. The access road is newly created and asphalted. Our accommodation is superior and there is plenty of flat space for 4x4 drivers with roof top tents or RVs. Our lodges are open all year round. Living close to nature in winter with a warm shower and heating has a special charm that off-road vehicle drivers especially love! We attach great importance to comfortable accommodation and sustainability. This is particularly reflected in the wooden construction of our houses, the furnishing with ecologically produced products, the networking with local suppliers and the involvement of the local population in our activities. We set up our premises with a lot of passion, always with the aim of offering you an unforgettable stay in this wonderful environment. So that everything is prepared in such a way that it meets our and our guests' requirements, we need a little more time. From 2024 we will be ready for you and look forward to your visit with us! 

Our tours for 2023 and 2024 can now be booked!

On & Off-Road Tours

Motorcycle - Quad - Polaris - SUV

Our focus is on our motorcycle trips in Romania; but we also offer tours for Polaris and off-road vehicle drivers as well as tours and trips to Corsica, Ireland and the Algarve. We deliberately have a manageable number of different tours in our offer, into which we continuously add new highlights. Our goal is not to go on as many tours as possible with as many riders as possible, but rather to offer our riders an unforgettable experience, which is why we prefer to travel with smaller groups. We offer tours both on- and off-road or a combination of both. Our great advantages are our flexibility, our insider knowledge and our moderate pricing. Do you have special requests that you cannot find in our portfolio, or do you want to carry out your tour at a specific time or for a group? Then just send us an e-mail and we will organize your very personal, individual and exclusive tour for you! Find out here which is the best time to travel for your Romania adventure...

Thats what our customers say

Harald R., Ernsthofen / A

Had an amazing 7-day tour with Nicole and Didi. Fantastic, varied day trips, great sights, excellent accommodation and the best guides ever. Strong recommendation!

Irena H., Rimpar / D

For me it was the best decision to do the tour through Romania with Nicole and Didi. A very good mix of the original country, sights and cities. As I wasn't a corner queen and had a less powerful motorcycle, I was given 100% consideration. I couldn't have imagined better guides. I would book the trip again!

Sebastian K., Obersulm / D

What can I say, it was terrific. Experiencing Romania is great, on the “real roads” led by good guides.

Romania - wonderful country, fantastic natural landscape, rich history, pleasant continental climate and hospitable people. But recently the country has often been associated with the insecure situation in Ukraine. Nevertheless, Romania is a safe travel destination. Why? Well, the country has made tremendous efforts to improve its security infrastructure in recent years. The government has invested in modern technology to monitor borders and increase security. In addition, Romania has a strong and stable economy that allows the country to strengthen and modernize its security forces. Romania has been a member of NATO since 2004 and also became a member of the European Union in 2007. This means that travelers in Romania can enjoy a high level of security. The people are friendly and welcoming, the scenery stunning and the culture rich and diverse. There is no need to worry if you want to travel to Romania. The country is safe and ready to welcome you.
