Recently, January 2003, BURTON team riders, Mikey Rencz and Donny Ellis visited Romania, accompanied by Senior photographer Jeff Webb, and Finnish Rider Tapio Kuusakoski, to do a story on Snowboarding in Romania, for Snowboard Canada Magazine. The trip was a success, and the story is amazing, here is what they had to say about this experience: ” Without Iulian Cozma, Mountainguide, our trip would have been a flop. Iulian new exactly where we needed to go, and got us there with no problems at all. Thanks to Iulian Cozma, Mountaingui… (>>>)
Eine Empfehlung: Mein Name ist Helmut Gargitter und bin hauptberuflich Bergführer. Ich organisiere Skitouren-, Kletter und Wanderreisen in der ganze Welt. Dieses Jahr war ich 2mal in Romänien unterwegs. Mein Begleiter war dort der junge Bergführer Julian Cozma aus Brasov. Zusammen mit ihm habe ich eine Skitourenroute ausgearbeitet die sich je nach Verhältnissen gut für Gruppen eignet. Diese Routen befinden sich an 2 verschiedenen Gebirgszügen der Südkarpaten. Jetzt im Herbst habe ich mit ihm noch eine Trekkingwoch… (>>>)
Hiking the Fagaras Mountains is like entering in a world of natural beauty. Even with an average altitude of only a little more than 2000 meters the mountains are sometimes rough. Beginning at the hilly part in the east, you sonly let the last trees behind you and reach the ridge, from where you can almost see (with a little imagination) the whole trail. Hiking the ridge trail is an extraordinary experience. On the right there are the steep valleys on their bottom you can see the mountain villages (in Romania the mountain villages are appa… (>>>)
We will never forget our wonderful trip to the Carpathains thanks to Iulian. We stayed four days with him, and he prepared everything in a way that our ski tours with him were perfect. We had a lot of fun, and enjoyed every minute we stayed together. He is a perfect Mountain Guide with an incredible knowledge of every single mountain, but he is much more than that: He is is a great cook, he can prepare nice and different plans plans adapted to the fitness of everybody, he even became my backpack porter when he felt I was too tired, and most of all, … (>>>)
I should begin by describing how I came to meet Iulian. I was travelling alone in Romania, and at this point in my trip I was at the beginning of a three-day hike in the Fagaras Mountains. We met at the Simbata Chalet. It seems that Iulian had been hired by two young men from France, and from what I understood through conversation with them, I learned that they had hired Iulian as a guide for the full duration of their trip in Romania. Iulian took care of all the planning, lodging and meals and on top of that, he had extensive experience hiking in t… (>>>)
I went in Romania during three weeks, in August and September 2001. I get in touch with Iulian by e-mail, and we planed the tour together. I decided to be with him during the first ten days, with a friend of mine.We agreed that all the accommodation, the meals and the information would be provided by Iulian. The first five days, we hiked in Fagaras mountains from chalet to chalet. During this trek, we rose to the higher pick of Romania (Moldoveanu peak, 2543 m).The five last days were devoted to visit the most interesting places of Transylva… (>>>)
Merci de nous avoir mis en relation avec Iulian Cozma; il nous a été pour nous quatre un guide parfait, en premier lieu au plan de la randonnée en montagne mais aussi aux plans des visites culturelles et des contacts avec la population du pays. N’hésitez pas à la recommander pour de tels programmes.
Merci encore. Yves Gonnord, J.F. Laurensberge, France, august 2001… (>>>)
I was very pleased to be asked to write this recommendation. I “discovered” Iulian via his website and all our communication was by email. I led a party of 11 for a four day trip to Romania with the emphasis on walking. Iulian was not only an experienced mountain guide. He stayed with us from morning until night and he was enormously helpful in enabling us to avoid all the pitfalls of travel in a genuinely foreign country. He arranged to meet us at the airport with a minibus, took us to the good accommodation he had arranged and stayed with … (>>>)
I visited Romania on a tour organised by Iulian Cozma to his homeland, a country largely fresh and un-exploited by tourism. My advice would be to visit while it is still such good value for money. The people are friendly, the food and wine excellent, the sights intriguing, and the scenery breathtaking.
