Love mountain biking.

Testimonial: Dear Horia, Thank You for beautiful four days mountain biking trip. In spite I am 59 years old, Your advice substantially improved my riding.

American guests, hiking in Romania

Our 6 day, 5 night trekking adventure in Romania was fantastic. Iulian picked a good route for us to see different parts of the Carpathian mountains. Every day we enjoyed beautiful scenery and great vistas. One of the highlights of the experience was our guide, Iulian. He is very knowledgeable and was clearly excited to share both the beautiful Romanian landscape and the wonderful culture with our family. He accommodated our every need and his easy going nature made him an absolute pleasure to spend time with. We have been on many guide… (>>>)

Mon père adorait les Carpartes

Curieuse d’apprendre plus sur la région où mon père a grandi, je voyageais une deuxième fois en Transylvanie, cette fois ci avec mon conjoint qui adore les montagnes et les aventures. J’ai contacté Iulian pour demander de l’aide car pour moi c’était la première fois que je faisais une randonnée dans la montagne. Il a proposé un tour de 3 jours.

My dad loved the Carpathian mountains – Belgium hikers in Romania

Wanderung in Transsilvanien , genießen Sie Natur pur

Wir waren mit einer Gruppe von 8 Leuten in Rumänien und haben zusammen mit Iulian und Horia (die beiden Bergführer und Guides) eine wundervolle 4 -tägige Tour durch Transilvanien erlebt. Da einige sich nicht auf das Mountainbike getraut haben, haben wir eine Wander- und eine Mountainbike-Gruppe gebildet. Die beiden sind sehr gut auf die Bedürfnisse der Gruppen eingegangen und waren total flexibel was das Programm anging. Wir haben wunderschöne Landschaften, unberührte Natur und auch kulturell Einiges erlebt. So waren … (>>>)

Hiking Fagaras mountains in Romania

During my recent visit to the Fagaras mountains I could see oceans of Alpenrosen, hear stories about giant bears, see flying alpine chickens and majestic chamois, walk the steepest chicken breast, experience the most yellow dormitory room, drink the the blackest coffee, almost touch kingseize and smallseize water-buffalos and observe caring storks high above the village, taste yellow caviar and watch active grandmas in story tale like gardens – making the strongest schnaps and – without a doubt – now I am in love with Roman… (>>>)

Two day trips in Romania

I was in Brasov for a business trip and decided to arrive a few days early to see a bit of the country side. Horia and Iulian were professional, flexible and willing to accommodate our schedules. We had 2 days and wanted to spend a day of biking and a day of hiking. They had no issue working with us to find the right combination of activity. They were flexible before and during the days to adjust based on weather, conditions and our desires. After a day of hiking Horia even suggested we make an unscheduled stop by Bran Castle. We had 2 awesome days … (>>>)

Backpacking in Romania, Fagaras main ridge traverse

Hi Iulian. I didn’t write anything before because I’m feeling very close to Eileen’s testimonial. Nevertheless, I felt today that it was important to write down how much humanity I found in the shepherds, the people in mountain huts, and in you guys. I felt really connected to the reality by your side, here in the Fàgàras mountains. It’s an invaluable feeling and I’m happy to have seen that it is possible to be connected with today’s world without loosing our essential humanity. Thank you Iul… (>>>)
