Having lived in Romania for almost a year, I decided it was time to get myself out of Bucharest and visit the mountains “properly”. So I found this wonderful website and requested a weekend tour. To my delight, a weekend tour was granted. 24 hours after arriving back in Bucharest, I am exhilerated. Not only is Iulian a very personable and fun chap to spend a weekend hiking with, he is a true professional in his work. Not only was he constantly finding the balance between finding me challenges and taking sufficient breaks, he provided a … (>>>)

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!

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 … (>>>)

Recently, January 2003, BURTON team riders, Mikey Rencz and Donny Ellis visited Romania, accompanied by Senior photographer Jeff Webb, and Finnish Rider Tapio Kuusakoski, to do a story on Snowboarding in Romania, for Snowboard Canada Magazine. 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… (>>>)
We will never forget our wonderful trip to the Carpathains thanks to Iulian. We stayed four days with him, and he prepared everything in a way that our ski tours with him were perfect. We had a lot of fun, and enjoyed every minute we stayed together. He is a perfect Mountain Guide with an incredible knowledge of every single mountain, but he is much more than that: He is is a great cook, he can prepare nice and different plans plans adapted to the fitness of everybody, he even became my backpack porter when he felt I was too tired, and most of all, … (>>>)
Adding ten days of hiking in Transsilvania to our down-the-Danube cycling trip Annabel and I sought to top off one adventure with another. Logically, our erratic way of communication should have led us straight into the desert, but thanks to Iulian’s golden patience we got golden Horia to take us through Postavaru, Piatra Craiului, Bucegi and Fagaras Mountains. A somewhat unseasonal snow storm greeted us upon arrival in Brasov October 1st. Our exceedingly wild expectations matched only by our exceedingly lacking equipme… (>>>)
