Lieber Julian, Nochmals herzlichen Dank für die Tage, die ich mit dir verbringen durfte. Als Rumänien-Neuling konnte ich mit dir den höchsten Berg deines Landes, den Moldoveanu besteigen. Sehr geschätz habe ich deine fürsorgliche Beutreuung besonders wenn es um Essen und Unterkunft ging. Zudem haben mir dein Rat und deine Tipps für meine weiteren Tage in Rumänien ohne Führer sehr geholfen. Schon jetzt bin ich sicher, dass ich die Bergwelt Rumäniens weiter erkunden möchte.
Vielen Dank, bis bald Monika Schoch, Schwei… (>>>)
Nous avons passé neuf jours mémorables en compagnie de Iulian dans les montagnes de Piatra Craiului, chez les bergers, dans les Fagaras et dans sa famille à Ucea de Sus. Iulian est très connaissant des montagnes (il connaît chaque détour et chaque roche par son prénom…) et avait une approche sécuritaire et discrète. Tout était organisé au quart de tour sans aucune inquiétude. Grâce à son sens de l’humour et à sa jovialité, nous avons eu l’impression de faire un trek avec un ami. Il nous a beaucoup appris sur les u… (>>>)
Hello Iulian, thanks for the photos. We finally saw some romainian rain when we were waiting to board the plane. The bus took us directly to the airport and we were there far too early, but better than too late. 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… (>>>)
Julian, Thanks so much for making this trip a great adventure, plus for the extra efforts you made on our behalf for taxis, accommodation and changes the plans. We would love to come back and experience more of Romania . We’ll look forward to the posting of your pictures.

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 … (>>>)
I went ski-touring with Iulian in March 2005. We are a group of five, and after having climbed and skied mount Damavand in Iran we decided to look for some skiing adventure in Romania. One of us located Iulian through the internet, whereupon Iulian pretty much told us he could arrange everything and would show us the best skiing places. Not only did he guide us to the impressive Bucegi range, beautiful Balea Lake and Sambata valley for some terrific powder skiing (and I mean loads of powder!!) but Iulian told us a lot about his country, and s… (>>>)
We spent three days in the Piatra Craiului area despite heavy snowfall on the previous few days before our arrival which meant a lower level hike. The tour was well organised to include plenty of walking on different terrain. We walked through the town of Zarnesti followed by a steep hike through forests then across open hills towards the mountain chalet (Cabana Curmutura). At the chalet there were fantastic views of the Bucegi range in the distance and of Piatra Cruialulai close by. On the following day we hiked up towards Piatra Mica k… (>>>)
