Walking in Transylvania, fairy tale county

Hiking with Avril and Nina, what a wonderful tour! I met Avril 8 years ago, on a strong winter, when we walked up to Curmatura hut in Piatra Craiului national park. This year, together with Nina, she came to see how our mountains look in the summer time! As you can clearly see in the photos, they look very well! We hiked in the Bucegi mountains, Bran county and it’s high hills. We also went to Magura, the fairy tale village from our winter trip that Avril remembered vividly; the snow had been so high that the bread was transported by a hors… (>>>)

Enjoy hiking in Fagaras mountains

Together with Jon and Chris, I backpacked half of Fagaras mountains ridge on one of the wettest period of 2016, even if was July. Chris came from the UK especially for this tour, Jon works in Bucharest and does a lot of runs in the Romanian mountains, but the Fagaras mountains are special mountains, which require a lot of knowledge and skill. In order for both of them to enjoy this challenging hike, we hiked together. As usual, we started from the East Side, from Piatra Craiului national park. After a warm evening at 7 Crai in Plaiul Foii, we s… (>>>)

British friends hiking on snowy trails in Fagaras mountains

It was Angus’s turn to organize a hiking trip for his friends in 2016, and following a tradition of exploring less popular destinations, he opted for a trip to Romania to hike up the highest peak in Fagaras mountains. Up till now they went in self-guided tours, but going for a guided tour in the Romanian Alps proved to be a really great idea. The weather turned quite bad up at more than 2000m, with low temperatures, first snow of the year and disturbing winds. The initial plan, going from Sambata all the way to Balea Lac, had to be abando… (>>>)

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 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 Aufwärmen und Ch… (>>>)

British hikers on Moldoveanu Peak, Romania 2016

Stuart and Liam flew to Romania on an extended weekend to hike the Carpathians, set foot on the highest peak and experience some of authentic rural lifestyle. Sounds like a simple plan, and in many way it was, but most of the times the great satisfactions come out of really simple things.

Iulian’s grandma house in Ucea de Sus village proved to be the ideal starting point to the mountain adventure. Proper traditional food (“carne și cârnați la borcan”, good luck finding that in any traditional Romanian restaurant) a… (>>>)

Walking in Transylvania, welcome to nature

Eva and Christian enjoyed a mountain biking tour in Transylvania last summer as well, and now they came back with other 6 friends. For biking and walking. And we all really enjoyed the days we spent together. Weather was like on Spring, sun, heavy rains, blue sky, but all ended well. We start from Biertan saxon village,and ended in Simon mountain village, walking and biking. In Viscri we get a 50% off from the church ticket, because we arrive by bike, and we walk there, and this was cool. The we visit Piatra Craiului visitors center, and we w… (>>>)
