Endurance hiking in Fagaras mountains with Arnon from Israel

Iulian – I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart, for the most wonderful hike I have ever had! These full 2 days of hiking in the Fagaras ridge is going to be one of the best memories I’ll keep for the rest of my life… In these awesome, untouched terrain of 2500+ peaks (Moldoveanu, Negoiu) , surrounded by clouds, watching over breathtaking landscape, you guided me through all the way in the most professional manner! After so many years as full-time hiking-guide, you are familiar with every detail of the trails, every stone, ever… (>>>)

Arnon from Israel on hiking tour in Romania

יוליאן – אני רוצה להודות לך מעומק ליבי על הטראק הטוב ביותר שהיה לי! יומיים מלאים של מסע רגלי ברכס הפגאראש יהיה ככל הנראה אחד מהזיכרונות הטובים ביותר בחיי… על פני קרקע נפלאים ובתוליים בגובה של מעל ל-2500 מטר (כולל הפסגות המופלאות של המולדובאן, והנגויו), מוקפים בעננים, משקיפים לעבר נוף עוצר נשימה, אתה הנחית אותי כל הדרך באופן המקצועי ביותר! אחרי כל-כך הרבה שנים כמדריך הרים מוסמך, אתה מכיר כל פרט במסלול, כל אבן, כל פניה וכל נחל נסתר. מודע היטב לכל שכיית-חמדה או סכנה אפשרית, ועדיין מלא תשוקה לעסוק במקצוע אותו אתה כל-כך אוהב! ציפיתי לעבוד … (>>>)

I visited Romania and I’ve got only good impressions after the tour

Hi Iulian, Thank you for the concerns! My way back to home was well, only in Moscow I had to pedal a little. About the tour everything was just fine. May be the weather was not very good few days. But we managed to make the schedule more versatile so we hadn’t lost much time because of the weather. Many thanks to Christian for that. As well as for the little interesting excursions in different places and few cities across the country and for the good guiding. It was the first time I visited Romania and I’ve got only good impressions … (>>>)

Ne-a aratat ca Romania chiar e frumoasa si sunt Romani foarte frumosi

Tura cu Iulian Cozma. 7 zile. In Fagarasi. Si totul a inceput cu un pranz Romanesc la bunica acasa, in Ucea de Sus. Am fost un grup mixt in ce priveste aceasta activitate. Unii cu experienta in Tibet iar eu deloc. Iulian a invatat repde cum sa ne ghideze, cat si ce poate fiecare. Toti ne-am bucurat de aventura, de emotii, de surprize, de munte, iar unii chiar si de raul de inaltime in drum spre varful Moldoveanul. Iulian te face sa intelegi muntele, iti arata cum sa il cunosti, cum sa te comporti cu el. Ne-a aratat ca Romania chiar e frumoasa si su… (>>>)

Merci encore à Horia, fantastique guide plein d’humanité et de bons conseils!

Nous avons fait un merveilleux trekking de 2 semaines grâce à Iulian Cozma et son équipe.

Tout s’est très bien passé: précis tout en étant en même temps simple. Nous avons particulièrement apprécié l’écoute du guide (Horia) et l’adaptabilité du programme si notre niveau ne correspondait pas au programme prévu. Le trekking devait avant tout être du plaisir!

Rencontres authentiques avec des bergers et le peuple roumain, paysages époustouflants, sensations fortes, moments pour se retrouver, tout cela était a… (>>>)

Hiking in the Romanian Alps was surreal

Truly breath taking

Hiking in the Romanian Alps was surreal. We ascended into the mountains and had lunch on the top of a mountain as the clouds rolled in from the valley below. Being able to see Iulian’s home made the trip personal and allowed a peek into Romanian culture and life. The views, fresh air, and incredible flowers that covered the mountainsides were breathtaking!!

While Iulian offers pure backcountry summer and winter treks for the hardy, we had an eclectic group of 30- to 60- year olds who appreciated a shower, robus… (>>>)

Backpacking in Romania

Testimonial from Fagaras and Bucegi hikes June 16-23, 2013:

I have been backpacking in the US for about 20 years. I have hiked in Montana, Wyoming, Northern California, and most of New England, as well as trekking in Peru. I have to say my experience in Romania in the Fagaras and Bucegi ranges was equal to or better than any other trip before.

Beginning with our first inquiries with our guide Iuli, my girlfriend Ana Wolf and I were extremely pleased with Iuli’s clear, honest and helpful responses to all of our questions. His English … (>>>)

Backpacking Fagaras mountains

If you want to backpack in the Transylvania Alps there is no better guide to go with than Iulian Cozma! In every way, from beginning to end Iulian is fun, reliable, skilled, trustworthy and kind. Right from the start, during the email process of figuring out dates, itinerary, and equipment I could feel Iulian’s warmth and knowledge coming through the internet.

During the trip he was the perfect guide, showing us bears from a distance, spotting snakes on the trail, telling us about the history of the trail and his country and region. He wa… (>>>)

I highly recommend Iulian as a guide

What an awesome way to experience the natural parts of Romania! I have been living in Romania for 10 months and my general experience is that Romanians are not high on customer service, but Iulian is definitely an exception. Our trip was well-planned in terms of accommodations, walking routes, meals, and points of interest. Iulian paid close attention to our group’s needs and was flexible when plans changed abruptly just 2 days before the planned start. The scenery was spectacular and the distances matched our abilities well. He cho… (>>>)

Großen Dank für diese wunderbaren acht Tage im Piatra Mare, Bucegi und Königstein

Lieber Iulian, großen Dank für diese wunderbaren acht Tage im Piatra Mare, Bucegi und Königstein. Nachdem wir letztes Jahr ausschließlich im Fagaras-Gebirge unterwegs waren, habe ich es dieses Jahr genossen, durch die sehr verschiedenen Landschaften zu streifen. Dass der auch für dieses Jahr geplante Abstecher in das Fagaras-Gebirge wetterbedingt nicht möglich war, hat sich als glückliche Fügung erwiesen. Denn das dadurch möglich gewordene Durchwandern der vielen kleinen  – sehr friedvollen – Dörfer zwis… (>>>)
