We have planned with our Italian friends a week-long traverse of the Southern Carpathians in July 2018, starting in Sinaia, across Bucegi, than along the main section of the Fagaras ridge, from Sambata to Negoiu.
After a good start in Bucegi mountains, the weather turned for the bad when we moved to Fagaras mountains. Instead of the main ridge traverse, we opted for some easier treks in the lower altitudes, at Negoiu and Barcaciu, but also an attempt towards Moldoveanu Peak via Turnuri and Podragu. We may not have the joy of breathing t… (>>>)
Back in Australia now after my European sojourn and a bit sadden to read the news about the unrest in Bucharest. I hope something positive comes from it all.
I want to thank you for not only organizing our tour but guiding it. After 40 odd of years of walking either solo, guiding or occasionally being guided, I guess I know a bit about what makes a good guide and I have to say you are one of the best I have come across.
Your attention to detail, organizational and leadership skills and ability to connect to us “oldies” ensured we had a te… (>>>)
Wir machten ein einwöchige Tour im Juli. Waren alle Top zufrieden. Alles 1a organisiert. Bis zur nächsten Tour 2018. Helmut Metz, July 2016… (>>>)
From time to time, some Italian mountain clubs are comin to Romania for a trip. I think they want to compare the Carpathian mountains with the Dolomiti or The Alps, and for most of them, the surprise is a lovely one!
This summer, a group of walkers from CAI Mirano Venetia, came one week tour, in middle of July, one of the hottest months from summer of 2016. We enjoyed good weather in Bucegi, Piatra Craiului national park and the high hills of Rucar Bran pass, but also the delicious food from our hosts in the mountains.
We hiked the hills and mead… (>>>)

We were a group of 6 friends from Luxembourg that originally were very reluctant to go hiking in Roumania. But thanks to Julian, our guide, we finally had a wonderful time in the Carpathians Mountains. Julian went out of his way to please us with our different needs. He was flexible enough with any change of program and destination. Thanks to him, with his perfect knowledge of the country, we were able to fully admire the country-side, in all its beauty. Not only were we pleasantly surprised by the landscape, but also the cl… (>>>)
Was the first snow from this year, but we were not scared about it. We were hiking in Bucegi mountains and Piatra Craiului national park, on snow, sun and beautiful weather.
They came from Luxembourg, being hiking on other different places before this trip. And, as almost always, Mike, Dan and their friends were surprised by our mountains, and not by our food. We were welcomed by Mircea and Doina Opris in Bucegi mountains, and by Alina from Simon mountains village.
Our trips went smooth and calm, enjoying the views, the landscape and all … (>>>)
Betty and Joël came for a long weekend hike and a short visit of Bucharest city. The right places for this type of tour are Bucegi natural park and the high hills of Bran county.
We started our tour with a warm up hike on the Western part of Bucegi mountains, then crossed over to Moeciu de Sus, ending in the picturesque mountain village of Simon. It was the best time of the year to hike, with the right weather conditions and this was something which motivated us to keep on hiking and enjoying the beautiful nature!
Enjoy the photos,

Thank you Horia and Iulian for two awesome days in Brasov and Piatra Craiului National Park!
When I arrived in Rumania with my car and my bike the only thing I was sure about was that I want to explore some parts of the Carpathians. After a challenging experience on my own I decided on Monday afternoon to ask Iulian to guide me for the next two days: Thursday and Wednesday.
I was very lucky! Iulian and Horia made it very spontaneously possible to ride some excellent trails and to have two outstanding days around Brasov! Horia was choosing perf… (>>>)
Here a small testimonial on our hiking tour in sept ’16 where we traversed Bucegi mountains, from Ialomita valley to Moeciu de Sus mountain village, then to Simon mountain village ending in Bran village / castle. Those places are very picturesque and reminded us somewhat of Hobbit country.
As already mentioned in other posts by other clients we also appreciated very much the professionalism of Iulian who organised the trekking and also was our guide. We would recommend his services to everybody who is interested in explori… (>>>)
