Between July 2 and July 9, I was organizing a hiking and a walking tour for a group from Sweden. The tour was in Fagaras mountains and in Maramures county. In Fagaras we hiked in Barcaciu – Negoiu areas, and in Maramures county around Botiza – Ieud – Barsana – Poienile Izei and Glod villages. We were in Maramures exactly on the right period to be able to enjoy the flowers on the hills.

Climbing Moldoveanu peak, the highest peak in Romanian mountains can be a easy job, or a hard one! For the four of us (Sarah, Hannah, David and me, Iulian) I can say it was a easy job with a wet ending, however it was great! The tour began in Balea Lac, with one day warm up, climbing Buteanu peak, one of the peaks over 2500 meters high from Romanian mountains, that offers one of the best views from all Fagaras range, but of course, you have to be there on the right time, otherwise is possible to just eat your sandwich in the clouds! We “chose&… (>>>)
Greetings, You may see some photos from Fagaras mountains and from the area of Bran castle villages, Moeciu de Sus and Poarta. The photos were taken between July 20-28. On the first day of the trip we, Silja, ?, Thomas, Rosana and me, Iulian, traverse Bucegi mountains, from Sinaia to Bangaleasa valley, over Omu peak. Between Babele rocks and Omu peak were a lot of people, like on boulevards of Bucharest, but on the way down to Moeciu de Sus nobody disturb us, and this was very nice! After this day we travel to Fagaras mountains, to Negoiu cha… (>>>)
A nice traverse ridge of Fagaras mountains, from Barcaciu chalet to Vistea Mare valley. The tour start with the visit of Sibiu city, and ending with a lunch on my grandmother house in Ucea de Sus. Between this days we hiked on good weather on the main ridge of Transylvanian Alps, Fagaras mountains. As usual, the weather on this tour was really nice, as you may see on the photos below. A special evening was when we visited Brancoveanu monastery, and we had dinner at the monastery! Well, we don;t have to forget the swimming pool from Victoria t… (>>>)
3 days in Fagaras mountains, climbing Moldoveanu peak, with a nice group of 5 persons. First 2 days the weather was ok, we were lucky on the day when we climb Moldoveanu peak, we can admire the view from up there. On the last day we had to change our plan, and descent to Victoria on Arpasul Mare valley, instead to go back to Balea Lac to recover our cars, but as Thomas and Aurelien said even the descent on the valley was nice and interesting.
Enjoy the photos!

In den rumänischen Karpaten: Die Besteigung des Moldoveanu von der Podragu-Hütte aus.
Der Moldoveanu mit Iulian Cozma in zwei Tagen (September 2009)
Für Westler liegt Rumänien etwas ‘grau’ im Osten, das trägt – wie bei jeder ernsteren Bergtour – zur Spannung bei, wird alles klappen oder bleibt der Gipfel fern? Weil Iulian englisch spricht, seine Frau und Mitarbeiterin Rosana deutsch, werden alle Unklarheiten schon in der Vorbereitung per Email bedacht. Dieser prima Service bleibt während de… (>>>)

We had a marvellous 6 –day trek in the beautiful Carpathian mountains of Transylvania, mostly at an altitude of 1800 – 2500 meters. The landscape is beautiful and varied, with impressive forest at lower altitude and alpine as one gets higher. Wildlife is plentiful. We saw chamois on several occasions, came across fresh bear droppings and wild boar tracks. The trails are good and well maintained. The terrain can be quite challenging but still well within the abilities of a bunch of fairly fit 50 – 60 year olds. We were lucky with th… (>>>)
Thanks to Iulian Cozma , my cousin Britt and I had a fantastic and eventful week in Romania from the 19th to the 26th of September. On the first day , in the Bucegi Mountains, the sky was clear and the sun was shining as it did throughout the week. From Sinaia we took the cable car 700 m up till we were above the tree line. It was barren and cold, so we had to put on our hats and gloves. We walked 300 very long meters up to Omu Peak. Here we sat, in the sun, in front of a wooden cottage where one could buy soup, coffee and very sweet tea, and enjoyed the view ov… (>>>)
below you may see some photos from my last tour from 2009 season. It was October, and the snow came to early in most of the areas of Romania, so the initial plan was changed few times. But as you may see, the tour was a successful one!

Dear Iulian, you definitely deserve this! Sorry that it’s US currency – we didn’t have enough lei and we couldn’t find any banks in the Danube Delta. But you can send this directly to B&H photo … We hoped that our guide in the mo… (>>>)
