Fagaras mountains traverse

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… (>>>)

Tour in Bucegi mountains, Piatra Craiului mountains and Fagaras mountains, visiting Ucea de Sus village

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… (>>>)

Family walking in Romania

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 … (>>>)

Walking softly adventyres founder hiking in Romania

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… (>>>)

Wandern in Rumänien

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… (>>>)

Piatra Craiului national park

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… (>>>)

Karparten einmal ein Trekking / Wanderungen im September

Aufgrund unserer schon früh feststehenden Pläne, in den Karparten einmal ein Trekking / Wanderungen im September 2007 durchzuführen, nahmen wir im Dezember 2006 Kontakt auf mit Iulian Cozma, dessen Adresse wir über Internet fanden (contact@mountainguide.ro). Schon bald konnten wir uns auf die Route / Preis etc. einigen, was auch unsere Planung, die darauf folgenden Wochen in Rumänien auf eigene Faust zu entdecken, vereinfachte. Iulian gelang es sehr bald uns durch seine kompetente Art, Vertrauen zu geben, dass auch wi… (>>>)

Backpacking in Romania

After travelling accross the breadth of europe by train from england we arrived in Brasov (close to the carpathian mountains) at 5:00 in the morning, bleary eyed and tired i jumped out of the train to meet a tall Romanian with a large and welcoming grin on his face. From the start he was great; inviting and informative speaking near perfect english and knowing a great deal about romanian culture. My first impressions of Iulian were positive and throughout the trip I learnt how steadfast, proffesional and experienced he was at mountaine… (>>>)

Climbing highest peak in Romania

I did a tour with Iulian to the Moldoveanu Peak in August 2007. The purpose of the trip was to reach the peak and Iulain recommended that we did it in two days – a good recommandation which gave us the chance of enjoying the beautiful environments of the Fagaras Mountains without going to slow or being exhausted. Unfortunately the weather was not very good on the day we went to the peak, but that did not stop us from making the top. Even though we did not see very much, the trip gave me a very good impression of the impressive Fagaras Mountains. … (>>>)
