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… (>>>)
Iulian Cozma organized for our departament a outdoor team-building trip in the Bucegi mountains in february 2003. The trip represented a real fun and entertaining exercise, and Iulian was very kind and helpful to us-he facilitated for our group a great time in the Bucegi mountains and, therefore, offered us the opportunity to become a better team!

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!

Romania is the “Wild East” of skiing and Iluian is a great guide to explore it with. During my week there it snowed constantly- light, smoky dry powder that rivals anything I’ve skied in the Rockies or Alps. We had fresh tracks almost every day, whether skiing the trees at the resort of Poiana Brasov or exploring the back country of the Simbata Valley. The terrain is wild, the snow is fantastic and at the end of a hard day’s skiing you can relax over a meal of bear steak and wash it down with some of Iulian’s grandmother’s plum bran… (>>>)
As a professional photographer, I travel around the world visiting various locations to do photographic and journalistic work. I initially contacted Iullian and he was happy to help me through the planning stages of our trip, including weekly snow conditions updates. He was gladly waiting for us at the airport when we arrived! When travelling on these types of trips, we need knowledgable and flexible guiding so that we are able to find the best shooting conditions possible at any given time. We also travel with a lot of equipement and … (>>>)

The trip was a success, and the story is amazing, here is what they had to say about this experience: ” Without Iulian Cozma, Mountainguide, our trip would have been a flop. Iulian new exactly where we needed to go, and got us there with no problems at all. Thanks to Iulian Cozma, Mountaingui… (>>>)
Eine Empfehlung: Mein Name ist Helmut Gargitter und bin hauptberuflich Bergführer. Ich organisiere Skitouren-, Kletter und Wanderreisen in der ganze Welt. Dieses Jahr war ich 2mal in Romänien unterwegs. Mein Begleiter war dort der junge Bergführer Julian Cozma aus Brasov. Zusammen mit ihm habe ich eine Skitourenroute ausgearbeitet die sich je nach Verhältnissen gut für Gruppen eignet. Diese Routen befinden sich an 2 verschiedenen Gebirgszügen der Südkarpaten. Jetzt im Herbst habe ich mit ihm noch eine Trekkingwoch… (>>>)
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… (>>>)
