The tour I thought of, I personally like it very much, it's on a bicycle which is authentic and eco friendly way. The purpose is to discover with me and bike the Romanian villages, vineyards, forests near Iasi. On your bicycle, around you, it's different. Great advantage because you can walk a relatively long distance and at the same time you can admire the scenery near you, the tranquility of the villages, the vineyards, the forests. It's a little different on foot, you do not have the same distance, and with the car, it's all too fast. We can certainly stop tasting wine at one of the cellars in the area, then continue to the highest point of our Repedea Hill trip, and near the Geological and Paleontological Reservation. The journey does not end here, we pass on the paths and the forest roads and then we reach the Dobrovat village with the monastery there. It can be considered too much work, but a bit of struggle is good for the soul and buddy.

Itinerary

Our tour starts in front of the Palace of Culture. After a warm-up session, a slight climb takes us to the first village of Hlincea where we can visit the monastery. We keep going through the village and vineyards and get to one of the wine cellars in the area where we can participate in a wine tasting. Until this, we have not travelled more than 10 km / 7 miles. We delight our taste with the well-chosen varieties of wine and we hardly let ourselves go to the highest point of our trip about 340 m / 1115 ft, our start was at 55m / 180 ft altitude. Our journey continues to the most remote point of Iasi Dobrovat village at almost 25 km / 15 miles, flatter or downward road. Here we make the longest break, we rebuild our forces, we hydrate. And we are going back on another path, we make a loop. For almost 10 km / 6 miles by gravel road through the forest, we get to the village with an almost lost church and others surprise.
