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… (>>>)

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… (>>>)
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 … (>>>)

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… (>>>)
