Thank you for giving us a wonderful holiday, both you and Radu are lovely people, we enjoyed your company and kindness, but most of all your profesialism as mountain leaders. All of the accomodation was excellent and the food like the brandy MAGIC!!!! Because after two glasses your legs dissapear. Thank you again for everything we w… (>>>)

We enjoyed our recent visit to the mountains of Romania immensely. Iulian was a great host and guide for our two-week visit, which included hiking in the Fagarash and Retezat Mountains and Bucegi Plateau. He was professional and well-organized throughout the trip, from the dining and sleeping arrangements at each of the chalets to the perfect timing of the comfortable bus meeting us at the trailheads. Each day of hiking led us to incredible views and Iulian’s companionship and knowledge of the region added a lot to our enjoyment. I… (>>>)
Dear Iulian, Good to hear from you and thank you for the great photo’s I need not have bothered taking my camera it’s extra weight no doubt slowed me down! The trip was really great giving us an insight into Romania, the sights, Sinaia, Brasov, Sighisoara and Sibiu and not forgetting the main reason for our visit, the mountains, the varied accommodation gave just the right mixture. Your personality, input, and patience made the trip so much more enjoyable and I particularly thank you for your kindness to daughter Susie and being so c… (>>>)

We spent eight enjoyable days in June with Iulian, hiking and touring in and about Brasov . It was our first trip to Romania . Our knowledge of the Romanian language is very little. With Iulian’s help, we were able to see more, do more, and go more places with less hassle, less confusion and more enjoyment. By knowing the area and the resources well, Iulian suggested alternatives to limitations imposed by the weather, our gear and our abilities. Iulian is value oriented and an effective negotiator. He is personable, helpful, and knowl… (>>>)
Reference for Iulian Cozma from Matthew LaCompte: My wife, Helen, and I had a great experience hiking and traveling with Iulian Cozma in Romania. We spent 8 days with him from May 27, 2005 until June 4, 2005. For the first 3 days we had a wonderful time hiking in the Fagaras Mountains. Iulian’s knowledge and expertise in the mountains were extremely impressive and he really made sure that we were comfortable and safe during our mountain hikes. He also discussed knowledgeably the flora and fauna we encountered. We were fortunate to see … (>>>)
In July 2004 we have been hiking in the Fagaras Mountains with Iulian Cozma for five days. Both my friend and myself are beginners in mountaineering and have almost no experience? except for skiing in well prepared skiing resorts in the Alps. To cut it short: from the organization and communication in the beginning to the actual trip, it was an absolutely fantastic and valuable experience. The first two days Iulian chose smaller and less difficult tracks for “warming up” and getting used to the mountains. Then we traversed from on… (>>>)
Looking for splendid views? Aiming at climbing to the top, hiking to lonely places, enjoying the feeling of breathing fresh air? Then go hiking in the Romanian Carpathians! In summer 2003, we enjoyed hiking the ridge trail in the Fagaras mountains. During the 5-day hike, we could let float our mind, forget the daily routine and of course, we got a lot of new impressions. Although the ridge hike may not be underestimated we mastered all challenges without troubles – not least because we could always count on our mountain guide Iulian C… (>>>)
A wonderful combination of good walking, interesting wildlife, spectacular scenery and culture. Iulian proved to be the best possible guide – thoughtful, selfless, organised and highly knowledgeable and informative. Don’t go to the Fagaras Mountains without him!

Hiking the Fagaras Mountains is like entering in a world of natural beauty. Even with an average altitude of only a little more than 2000 meters the mountains are sometimes rough. Beginning at the hilly part in the east, you sonly let the last trees behind you and reach the ridge, from where you can almost see (with a little imagination) the whole trail. Hiking the ridge trail is an extraordinary experience. On the right there are the steep valleys on their bottom you can see the mountain villages (in Romania the mountain villages are appa… (>>>)
