Snowsnoeing i Transsylvanien, Rumænien

My wife bought this trip for me for Christmas and for my wife it was an importance that I could travel with a guide where trust and personality were the key words. And I must say that it was as she hoped.

My trip was a mountaineering trip over 5 days. Before I even arrived, I have had a long and positive dialogue with Iulian, who even offered to lend me some equipment that i needed. I received lots of good advice and I felt very well prepared to be alone in Romania. The tour, which included only me, took place under great conditions because we we… (>>>)

Powder snow, forest skiing in Poiana Brasov ski resort, Romania

 

Well, still snowing here, and last weekend we did it again through the forests of Poiana Brasov ski resort. This time we used the ski lifts to enjoy all the powder from the forests. And we really enjoy it!

For some people skiing mean just a different way to get exposed to other, or things like this, but when you ski through the forest is just you and the big snow, sometime a tree, and maybe a someone who’s telling you what to do to shot some photos. It doesn’t matter what skis you use, how fat they are, is matter that you enjoy … (>>>)

Ski touring in Poiana Brasov ski resort in Romania

Well, I can start this snow report very simple. We were doing some ski tours on a ski resort, but the reality is coming when we saw how much snow was near the slopes or on the forest. And snow start to be bigger and bigger.

After a hiking, biking and walking  summer season, when sometime we pray for a rain, the winter start without big promises for our 100 mm wide skis. But I was thinking: well, Summer was great, no rain, very nice weather, so I enjoy it, then winter have to be beautiful, if you can say beautiful when you speak about winter 😉 For … (>>>)

Snow hiking in Romania, on Bran county hills

Greetings,

usually in middle of April we expect to have nice weather, green fields and at least some flowers. But in middle of April 2011 was exactly the opposite! In lower parts of Romania was raining, and on upper parts was snowing! I mean a lot of snow! On the hills of Bran county where we did our 4 days tour, the snow was around 1 meter …. But even like this the participants enjoyed the trip!

Best regards, Iulian

Testimonial:

Elk jaar loopt onze groep van 7 vrienden ergens in de bergen een hiking-tocht. In April 2011 hebben we gelopen … (>>>)

Skitouren und Kultur in Rumänien, in Süd-Siebenbürgen

Greetings,

well, I can say that I just finished my ski touring season with a nice and interesting tour, especially for my guests, which this time came from Switzerland!

Weather was so and so, I mean on some days was really foggy and we can’t reach Omu peak from Bucegi mountains, or windy, but in Fagaras mountains the weather and the snow were ok, and we enjoy our tours.

Probably the most interesting part for my guest was, as always on my tours, the visits in Ucea de Sus village. I say visits because we ‘been there two times during o… (>>>)

Sci alpinismo in Carpazi Rumeni

Traveling on this days for skiing or hiking is more than traveling, is also a opportunity to know a different country, different people, find more about a different culture and why not to enjoy a active holiday in a ex-communist country 🙂

At least these are most of the reasons for the people from country like Switzerland, Italy or Germany, because they are quite close to The Alps. BUT. I’ve been in Swiss Alps for ski touring 2 times, last time in February 2011, and was great, but know I understand what persons who are traveling in Roman… (>>>)

Skitouren im Rumänischen Gebirge

Well, winter is here, winter was here! I mean last week, 5-12 March 2011, was really winter, with strong winds, below zero temperatures and not the last good snow! Now the temperatures are over zero, but is still OK.

Our tour start in Bucegi mountains, where the weather was bad but good for skiing, if is possible to say something like this! Visibility was not great, BUT the snow was more than great! We have between 30-40 cm of fresh snow, and we enjoyed very much some runs from Tataru peak and Strungile mici peak, down to Cabana Padina, where w… (>>>)
