Julian is a brilliant and patient mountain guide. He took me and my friend, both of us are mountain novices, on a 2 day mountain tour in the Fagarasch mountains. The tour was amazing, tough but very rewarding when we stood on the top of mount Moldoveanu. Julian managed to get the best out of both of us. Next time I would love to do a longer trip. I can recommend him warmly.

We recently returned from an amazing hiking and cultural trip to Romania, provided in partnership with Iulian Cozma of Step by Step Agency and Bredeson Outdoor Adventures. Our lively group, informally self-named the Walkers & Talkers for our love of conversation and hiking, travels together every year, and this year’s adventure brought us to Transylvania. Iulian provided us with a truly unique insider’s view of Romania, leading us in village to village hikes across a beautiful, almost medieval landscape. We enjoyed th… (>>>)
Our share was to select these places, all the remaining was taken care by Iulian. He actively proposed the time schedules and chose the hiking paths which fitted perfectly to our expectations and to the level of our ability. This must indicate superb guide skills. Iulian is also an inexhaustible source of knowledge what comes to the local region and the whole Romania. We also noted that he is an excellent photographer. Iulian took pictures all along the hiking trip and created from the pictures an enjoyable diary telling the twists and … (>>>)
I have been on two trips with Iulian. One last July involving day trips to the mountains, villages and fortified churches around Brasov, and this July on a hut to hut trip in the Fagaras range. It is difficult to imagine how a mountain guide could be better than Iulian. He is completely trustworthy and professional in terms of looking after your safety, organising your trip, dealing with the money aspects and generally everything you would expect of a guide. He is very knowledgeable about the region and on subjects such as natural histor… (>>>)
Together with four friends we trekked with Iulian for a week in the Bucegi, Piatra Craiului and Fagaras mountains. Over the last ten years we have done such walks in other mountains in Europe and this was the first time we used a guide. Iulian prepared our whole trip in Romania, including hotel and transportation in Bucharest and a concluding visit to Brasov. All arrangements worked out according to plan and exceeded our expectations. Iulian has everything that you expect from a good guide. He knows every track and every ridge of the mou… (>>>)
We first planned to stay 3 days in the Fagaras Mountains part of a one week trip in Transylvania. We were looking for easy trekking as we traveled with our 2.5-years old daughter and my husband had to carry her (over 13 KG). I contacted Iulian via his web page and agreed with his advise to spend 3 days in Balea Lake region. As soon as we met with him, our daughter adopted him, which is the best sign! Iulian advised us “easy” tracks and help us a lot to climb the first day (he also carried part of our belongings). This day was just fantastic, nice … (>>>)
Hi! Received an email from Iulian Cozma in Romania asking if I would provide you with a reference on him. I understand you are considering a ski trip in Romania with Iulian… I worked with Iulian to organize two summer hiking tours for our clients in the Romanian mountains–one in 2005 and one in 2006. I ended up traveling with both groups, so I know Iulian personally. Iulian is a skilled mountain guide, knows the Romanian mountains well; we couldn’t have been in better hands. All the arrangements we had agreed to–guiding services… (>>>)
Aufgrund kurzfristiger Pläne, in den Karpaten im Oktober / November 2007 zu wandern ohne selbst jegliche Vorbereitungen treffen zu können, nahmen wir Kontakt auf mit Iulian Cozma um eine Gebirgstouren Beratung (mountain tours couselling) in Anspruch zu nehmen. Leider kam der Wintereinbruch früh und unerwartet, was die Planung für Iulian erschwerte. Trotz unbeständigen Wetterverhältnissen haben wir in 3 verschiedenen Gebirgeketten, nämlich Piatra Craiului, Bucegi und Fagaras, tolle Wanderungen unternommen. I… (>>>)
Iulian knows a variety of beautiful trails and will tailor the hikes to fit your condition and desires. The photographs he takes will make for great memories. Iulian created an ambitious itinerary that included all the features that i requested.

Nach fast drei Wochen rund-um-die-uhr Betreuung im September 2007 kann ich Iulian in jeder Hinsicht nur empfehlen: kenntnisreich, zurückhaltend und politisch interessiert, habe ich vieles nicht nur über die Karpaten, sondern auch über Land und Leute erfahren. War stets gut und dennoch unaufdringlich umsorgt und hatte stets das Gefühl, jederzeit improvisieren zu können, wenn ich das möchte. Die Touren durch das Bucegi, Piatra Craiului und Fagaras waren voll lohnender Anstrengungen und intensiven Erlebens. Als Hobb… (>>>)
