Hiking in Bucegi mountains, rhododendron tour in Transylvanian Alps

Simple things are the best! Was a tour what I do almost every year and I enjoyed a lot each time! This time was just two days but was nice!

Enjoy the photos, Iulian, Iunie 2015

We spent two great days with Iulian, hiking in the Bucegi mountains. Bringing together a group of friends for an unusual hiking experience actually was not an easy task, with all the individual wishes, appointments, holiday plans, work issues and a bit of indecisiveness here and there. Iulian was a great help there, being flexible with the dates, the planning and quic… (>>>)

Walking tour in Romania, Bran county tour

Danes have an average of 5 to 6 weeks of holidays every year, so no wonder they are a very wanderous kind of people. Denmark being a relatively small country, the Danes usually travel abroad to follow their typical North-European appetite for outdoor activities.

Torben and Jesper chose the Bran County in Romania for their hiking trip in April 2015, hoping for some nice spring weather and fresh-green landscape. It was spring indeed, but the weather was rather challenging, keeping us at lower altitudes to avoid the unexpected snow up on … (>>>)

Walking holiday in Transylvania, Romania, Bran county and Bucegi mountains

Four days of mild, relaxed hiking on the hills of Bran Country and up in Bucegi Mountains passed by like a nice, warm summer breeze with David and Catherine. Lush green pastures were feasting our eyes, a surprising encounter for the end of August, when all vegetation is starting to show the sings of autumn.

It was a perfect escape from a busy place for our two guests, who thoroughly enjoyed every minute, every meter of quiet trail, serene forest or majestic mountain crest. Batteries charging time at its best, just a couple of hours flight f… (>>>)

Dutch hikers in Romania, hiking in Fagaras mountains

On the last years we deal quite a lot with hikers or bikers from Benelux countries. Well, I can say from the flat countries of Benelux. We were warned by Sigge to be carefully with them, because they bike and hike flat. Sometime they were very good prepared for climbs on bikes or on hikes, or sometime they were well surprised when they have to climb 1000 m in one climb. But this may happen when you travel for an active vacation. And when this active vacation happen to be in Carpathian mountains, be sure that we can find 500 or 1000 meters to climb f… (>>>)

Bergwanderung im Bucegi, Fagaras und Piatra Craiului-Gebirge, Rumanien

Mit Gabi und Michael haben wir versucht immer zwischen den Regenwolken zu wandern und uns ist es gelungen. Obwohl schlechtes Wetter angekündigt wurde, haben wir das Glück auf unserer Seite gehabt und wir sind eigentlich trocken bis zum Ende unserer Tour geblieben. Im Bucegi-Gebirge nach dem langen Aufstieg durch das Cerbului Tal haben wir den Omu-Gipfel erreicht und dann sind wir weiter nach Padina gewandert bei wunderschoenem Wetter. In Padina Nea Opris und Tanti Doina haben uns mit leckerem Essen verwöhnt. Am zweiten Tag ha… (>>>)

Belgian group of hikers enjoying a tour in Fagaras and Bucegi mountains, Romania

Hiking in Romania it is an unexpected experience for most of the visitors. And like this it was for the Belgium group of hikers from this August. As they are coming from a flat country like Belgium, cycling is the most common sport there. Also, they were good for hiking too, especially on  long hikes witch involve a lot of climbing. Not the last, they were jealous when they saw Transfagarasean highway, a long asphalt road with climb 1500 meters, in central part of Fagaras mountains. Of course I told them that our Swedish friends  climb … (>>>)

Walking tour in Romania, Bucegi, Piatra Craiului national park

As it happen quite a lot of times on last years, Hans came with some friends to walk on his home country mountain, Bucegi mountains in Romania.

As Karin said, was a smooth, quiet and relaxing tour! As in every autumn, I’m happy to enjoy at least one tour in Fagaras mountains, my home mountains…..and this year Karin was the one who “invite” me on a tour up there.
