Red Bull Wingsuit Team Executes First Flight Over Transfăgărășan Highway, Romania

“When I saw the Transfagarasan road from above, I was like… I mean, it’s massive, it’s a huge road in a huge valley. I liked the wildlife. You feel it. You see it from above really well because there is nothing. It’s just the road and the cliffs on the sides. It was quite a nice experience for me.” –Marco Waltenspiel

We love everything to do with mountains and that includes those pulse raising switchback roads with hairpin after hairpin over dizzying precipices. Transfăgărășan Highway, in Romania wasn’t even on my radar before this video but what cool introduction. The 150 km mountain road crosses the Carpathians. Its is Romania’s best known road and thanks to a feature on BBC Top Gear in 2009, is now one of the country’s most popular tourist attractions. Join the Red Bull Skydiving team as the first ever wingsuit flight over this incredible Romanian roadway:
