My name is Conny Linusson and I am from Sweden. For some years now I have been travelling to Romania in business and have been thinking about skiing in the Carpathians. Finally it come to a reality. Me and my girlfriend Marie decided to go skiing in February 2006. Since we both enjoy the adventure running in less crowded areas using seal skins the choice fell on Balea Lac. However, in such areas it is good to have an educated mountain guide that knows the area. When searching on the internet we got in contact with Iulian Cozma. After some mails … (>>>)

Iulian, A short mail to thank you for arranging and guiding a really enjoyable ski trip to Romania. Sadly the weather prevented us from completing the proposed itinerary but you made the most of the conditions to provide us with a memorable trip. The organisation was excellent and you could not have been more helpful. I would recommend you to anyone interested in visiting the mountains of Romania. All my best regards,

Lieber Julian, Nach den gemeinsamen Tagen im Sommer möchte ich die Bergwelt Rumäniens auch im Winter kennen lernen. Ich habe mich sehr gefreut, dass ich mit deinen Gästen aus England eine Skitourenwoche mit dir verbringen durfte. Leider hat sich das Wetter und die Verhältnisse nicht von der besten Seite gezeigt. Trotzdem hast du uns ein abwechslungsreiches Programm präsentiert, das den aktuellen Bedingungen angepasst war. Dein Organisationstalent und dein unermüdliches Bestreben, uns ein interessantes Alternativ… (>>>)
Thanks for making a very enjoyable week in Romania. We were all very impressed with your skills on the hill and the way you made sure that we all got the best out of the week. You are very talented guide and an excellent ambassador for your country! The photos were a great bonus and coke never tasted so good!

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… (>>>)
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… (>>>)
Nous remercions Iulian Cozma pour nous avoir guidés durant 6 jours à travers les Carpates méridionales entre Balea Lac et la vallée de Sambata. Voici le récit des jours que nous avons passés en compagnie de Iulian.

Highly recommended!!!! I recently moved to Romania from Sweden and I am a great outdoor fan. Having been skiing a lot in USA, Canada, Sweden and the Alps I was very curious about what the Romanian mountains had to offer. Unfortunately I quickly realized that it’s not so easy to access the more remote, mysterious places that Romania is so famous for. Luckily I found Iulian which proved to be more than an excellent guide. Not only because his great knowledge about the mountains and his great expertise when it comes to safety but also his gr… (>>>)
I went for my second time to Romania, in the Piatra Craiului & Fagaras Mountains with Iulian for the last 2 weeks of Feb 2005, and as the first time between Christmas and New Year in 2002 I was there it was in all great! We went to Cabana Curmatura in Piatra Craiului Mountains, for a couple of days, went climbing, and allthough the weather wasn´t perfect it was nice fore the climbing. Allso we went to Balea Lake in Fagaras Mountains and went for some climbing there to for 3 days. Between all this climbing we where in Ucea de Sus Village, at Iu… (>>>)
