Mountain biking holiday in Romania, Bran county, Transylvanian villages

Willing to ride…Ido and Liorah, from Israel, wanted to try the mountainbiking in the Romanian mountains.  After a small adjustments of the plans we had a very beautiful biking week, maybe not on the most technical trails but with beautiful landscapes and a few challenges. I was very much impressed of their wish, will and determination  to ride and I can say they did a great job. With very good mood and joy we discovered the views around Baiului, Bucegi and Piatra Craiului Mountains. Riding thru green forests, along moun… (>>>)

Expert mountain biking tour in Romania, South East of Transylvania

Performance… About Sigge and Mike I’ve heard last year. They were described as mountainbikers with very good tehnical skills so that made me pretty much eager to meet them. And I just say this: It all worthed. This year they came with Thomas  and we rode the Carpathian Expert Ride wich is the most difficult tour offered by MTBtours.ro – and Mountainguide.ro in Romania at this point. I had big expectations from the whole trip but I have to confess: the tour and the way of riding was so much beyond my dreams.

With this team it w… (>>>)

Discover Romanian mountains, adventure hiking in Carpathians

Eileen came from Switzerland to Romania tracking back family roots and trails. Her grandfather started his love affair with the mountains in Fagaras, in Sambata and Vistisoarea area, following his passion later in life up in the Swiss mountains. Eileen wanted to see with her own eyes where it all began, so, together with her friend Yves, they asked us to plan a ten days trekking tour in Romania.

We started near Brasov, in Piatra Mare, and made our way towards Fagaras via Bucegi and Piatra Craiului. All along the way we visited sheep farms… (>>>)

Drumetie montana in Muntii Fagaras

Intotdeauna mi-am dorit sa pot sa scriu un raport de tura in limba Romana! Si din pacate pana acum nu am avut aceasta sansa. De ce? Pentru ca in cei 14 ani de cand merg pe munte ca si ghid, am organizat ture doar pentru straini care vin sa vada Romania dincolo de tabloide, de stiri de televiziune, vin sa vada o Romanie reala, si de ce nu, o Romanie frumoasa. Acum a fost un grup mixt, Suedezo – Roman, 5 la 2 ca sa zic asa, adica 5 Suedezi pusi pe shotii tot timpul, nu ca Romancele ar fi fost mai calme! No way! Dor ca si-au dat drumu’ mai incet, … (>>>)

Explore Romanian mountains, hiking and culture in Transylvanian Alps

June can be heaven or hell! Well not as hot as is in hell maybe, (I never been there. Yet) but sometime weather can be unfriendly! Of course, weather is not so important when you traverse half of the World for hiking in Transylvanian Alps, the important part is the equipment you bring with you for a tour like this, the adrenaline you have and the expectations. In small words, we get wet every day of our trip, but also we dried the equipment over the night, being ready for the next day adventure. And we enjoy every step we did in Bucegi and Fagaras m… (>>>)
