Israeli trail runners in Romania

באוגוסט 2016 יצאנו עם הרבה חששות והתרגשות שישה חברים לטיול ריצה בהרי רומניה. כולנו רצים מנוסים במרוצי עיר אך עם מעט ניסיון בריצות שטח ועוד פחות ניסיון בריצה בתוואי הררי. לאחר מספר בירורים יצרו קשר עם מספר מדריכים מקומיים אחד מהם היה יוליאן – מדריך טיולים מקומי שיושב בעיר ברשו… (>>>)

Romania trail running experience, Bucegi mountains

In August 2016 we went out six friends with a lot of fear and excitement on a trip to the mountains of Romania. We are all experienced “city runners” but with little trail running experience and even less mountainous running experience. After a number of inquiries we made contact with several local guides one of them was Julian – A local tour guide that sits in the city of Brasov. From the first mail Julian seem very serious and professional. This impression only grew stronger with the progress of the planning of the trip.

The trip wa… (>>>)

Love mountain biking.

Testimonial: Dear Horia, Thank You for beautiful four days mountain biking trip. In spite I am 59 years old, Your advice substantially improved my riding. Now I know how to ride throw more than 1m down steps and how to stay focused and balanced on downhill rides among roots and stones. With Your help I know how to save energy during up hill riding. You helped me to understand “What the mount biking is about”.We had a chance to discover beauty of Carpathian nature, good natural or bio food and to meet nice and important people. Y… (>>>)

Young at heart: mountain biking the trails at 60

I don’t know about you, but I am pretty sure about me: it’s like Lubo and Milo that I want to be when I am sixty years old. On bike, riding single trails, sweating uphill and shouting downhill. Visiting new places, new countries, new mountains.

I read somewhere that the secret to have a healthy heart and a fresh mind is to do something that scares you a little in every day of your life. Well, we definitely provided enough testing moments for Milo and Lubo during the four days of mountain biking we organized for them this August. Th… (>>>)

Trail running in Romania, enjoy mountains!

How can i put it on paper when I don’t even find the words for it? It was a tour that I was little worrying about at the beginning but when it started it was everything else but worries. Beautiful trails, people with a lot of joy in hearts and open for everything were a perfect match to have a great experience. This way we succeed really to make the best of our 4 days Trail Running tour. Looking back at these days I still feel the joy and happiness to have run in such a special company, on our home trails.

Thinking more about it, it came. Flow … (>>>)

Hiking and photo tour in Fagaras Mountains

There is a good number of people that come to Romania not because they were lured in by the famous landscape beauty, the gorgeous mountains or the any other world renown tourist attractions. The reasoning is pretty mundane: a business trip, a short or long term contract with a locally based company, a friend’s wedding, etc. Most often than not, people come back to Romania to trace back family roots, to discover the world were their parents or ancestors came into being and developed as individuals, before going to discover and con… (>>>)

American guests, hiking in Romania

Our 6 day, 5 night trekking adventure in Romania was fantastic. Iulian picked a good route for us to see different parts of the Carpathian mountains. Every day we enjoyed beautiful scenery and great vistas. One of the highlights of the experience was our guide, Iulian. He is very knowledgeable and was clearly excited to share both the beautiful Romanian landscape and the wonderful culture with our family. He accommodated our every need and his easy going nature made him an absolute pleasure to spend time with. We have been on many guide… (>>>)

American family hiking in Romania, enjoying nature

They came from California to visit her family in Berlin. And because 10 years ago, if I remember well, I was hiking with some of their friends, Tanja and her family decide to spent a week hiking in Romania. Even if our plans were changed by the weather conditions, we were lucky enough where we hiked in Bucegi mountains and in Fagaras mountains. The kids were fantastic! They enjoy every single moments of their holiday, even playing on rain! And sure, we stayed one night in Ucea de Sus village, my grandmother village, on the 1892 renovated hou… (>>>)

Weatherproof, mountain biking in Romania

Markus – Ich habe ihn vor zwei Jahren getroffen bei einer unserer schönsten Touren mit allen nur möglichen Wetterbedingungen: von Schnee bis Nebel und glühender Hitze.

Begeistert, trotz des vielen Schnees und Regens,wollte er mit ein paar Freunden wiederkommen. Jetzt war es so weit und auf dem Flughafen gab es das Wiedersehen. Pech – sein Gepäck wurde in Deutschland vergessen. Aber wir haben uns vorgenommen, alles mit Spass und Freude zu überwinden. 😉

Schon am ersten Tag hieß es: Full Power. Die erste Runde galt dem A… (>>>)

Mon père adorait les Carpartes

Curieuse d’apprendre plus sur la région où mon père a grandi, je voyageais une deuxième fois en Transylvanie, cette fois ci avec mon conjoint qui adore les montagnes et les aventures. J’ai contacté Iulian pour demander de l’aide car pour moi c’était la première fois que je faisais une randonnée dans la montagne. Il a proposé un tour de 3 jours. Nous avons passé 10 jours en Transylvanie avec la famille et des amis de Boița. Puis le jour du depart à la montagne est arrivé. Horia est venu nous chercher à Boița pour all… (>>>)
