Skitouren Erlebnis in Rumänien, Süd-Karpaten

Skitouren Erlebnis in Rumänien Bergen, Süd-Karpaten, in Fagaras und Bucegi Gebirge

Zwischen 21 Februar und 01 März war eine Schitourenwoche geplant mit Günther,  Franz, Hubert und Bartholomäus – Bascht vom Bergrettungsdienst Pongau (sehr fit und erfahren –deswegen noch mehr Spass gehabt). Fast überall in Europa waren dieses Jahr die Schneebedingungen nicht ideal. Und bei uns hat die Tour genau unter diesen Bedingungen angefangen.

In den ersten zwei Tagen zwischen unseren Touren mit mehr oder weniger Schnee, mit Schierntragen oder fahren haben wir über Laublawinen geplaudert und wie wicht… (>>>)

Ski touring in Greece, Olympus mountain

Most of the mountain lovers do not make a connection between ski touring and Greece. For most of them, Greece is mean deep clear water, rock climbing, but not ski touring. In fact from the Greek mountains are coming the ancient Gods, Zeus have his home on Olympus mountains. So if are mountains must to be some snow too! After our experience in Macedonia republic, where we’ve been also for ski touring, we moved more South East, to Olympus mountain area. As in Popova Sapka, we were blessed with beautiful weather, blue sky; well, pretty wind… (>>>)

Ski touring in Macedonia republic, Popova Sapka

I meet the group on spring of 2011, when we enjoy a ski trip in Romania, Bucegi and Fagaras mountains. The few years after we enjoyed another ski tour together in Bulgarian mountains, Rila and Pirin. As some of them confess, was one of the best tour they ever did. Weather was nice, snow was great, over all a great experience.

Now we were skiing for few days in Shar mountains, at Popova Sapka in Macedonia republic. Despite the poor snow all over Europe, we were lucky with enough snow and beautiful blue sky. Also, a walking tour in the capital cit… (>>>)

Revelionul de la Cabana Barcaciu, din Muntii Fagaras

Tura la coltari, soare, destul de frig, mancare gustoasa, bautura pe saturare si o gasca misto. Cam astea au fost ingredientele revelionului din 2013, pe care l-am petrecut la cabana Barcaciu, in Muntii Fagaras.

O parte dintre noi a ajuns la cabana pe 30 decembrie dupa amiaza, iar restul seara, pe la 8. Dupa bucuria revederii cu ceilalti, am fost primiti de Nea Petre si Mihai cu zambetul pe buze si cu o ciorba ca la mama acasa: gustoasa si calda. Mai aveam o singura zi din 2013, asa ca ne-am gandit sa o petrecem facand o tura pe creasta. Initia… (>>>)

Christmas in Ucea de Sus village, Fagaras county, Transylvania

My dear friends, It’s been a wonderful year and I was lucky to meet great people coming for ski touring, hiking and walking in Romania.

Christmas is one of the most important holidays in Romania and maybe the most beautiful as it’s celebration differs depending on the regions.  As you know, my family is original from Transylvania (“Ardeal”) – Ucea de Sus village, just at the base of Fagarasi Mountains.  Here, the Christmas tradition is very important and maintained for hundreds of years. On the Chr… (>>>)

Snow walking in Transylvania

It was freezing cold and pouring with rain the day I met Antonia and Annabel in the city center of Brasov. We were to discuss about our scheduled trekking tour up in the Carpathian Mountains and the weather wasn’t looking very promising.

I was in for a nice surprise. The two former Oxford students would not be put off by a few drops of rain, even if they hoped for a nice, warm, sunny autumn – as anyone would expect for an early October in Romania. It’s true that there weren’t just a few drops, but quite plenty, and not r… (>>>)

Vater und Sohn Expedition durchs Fagaras Gebirge

Ein unvergessliches Erlebnis war für uns die 3 Tagestour durchs Sambata Tal auf den Moldoveanu Gipfel. Es begann damit, dass Julian mit uns professionell für die Expedition einkaufen ging und wir den Inhalt unserer Rucksäcke überprüften. Zum Glück, denn wir konnten gemeinsam noch überflüssiges Gewicht reduzieren. Das war auch nötig, denn  der erste Tag , Aufstieg von 1800 Höhenmetern bis zum Refugio auf dem Portita Vistei Sattel auf 2310 m war ganz schön anstrengend. Unvergessliche Ausblicke über weite Täler,… (>>>)

I was skiing first time in Bulgarian mountains back on 2009, with a Swedish group. I meet first time for a ski tour in Romanian mountains, and then we went to Bulgaria for another week, but three years later. More or less was the same on this situation. We skied in Romania on 2011, and on this year we went together for a ski tour in Bulgarian mountains, Rila and Pirin mountains, climbing the highest peak in Bulgaria, Musala peak at 2925 m high.

We were there for 10 days, enjoying skiing and some cultural visits. We were very lucky with the first p… (>>>)

Sci alpinismo in Romania, nelle montagne dei Carpazi

Sono arrivate 11 persone. Dal Ticino, la parte italiana della Svizzera, là, dove, secondo me ,si “mangia” lo sci con la cioccolata Milka  o sul pane. Eppure sono venuti nei Carpati romeni per provare la neve, per vedere come si sta da noi.. E hanno visto…Cosi come ha detto Hildi, una signora del gruppo.”Adesso capisco perché la gente viene da voi a sciare “. Queste parole dopo una discesa attraverso la neve fresca  su Cocora nei monti Bucegi, dove aveva nevicato la notte prima (40 cm). Neve fresca, fine, fredda, giusta pe… (>>>)
