Explore Romania, enjoy mountains and culture

In brief, it was like this: we all enjoyed a two week tour in Romania, yes in Romania, meaning that we explored half of the country, driving, walking and tasting delicious food! In detail, we were in Bucharest, Sinaia, Bucegi mountains, Simon mountain village, Brasov city, Fagaras mountains, Balea Lake, Ucea de Sus village, Sibiu, Sighisoara, Gura Humorului and painted monasteries from that area and finally back to Bucharest. It was a tour with all the necessary ingredients, sun, some rain, lovely landscapes, good jokes and most im… (>>>)

Welcome to nature, walking in Romania

Betty and Joël came for a long weekend hike and a short visit of Bucharest city. The right places for this type of tour are Bucegi natural park and the high hills of Bran county. We started our tour with a warm up hike on the Western part of Bucegi mountains, then crossed over to Moeciu de Sus, ending in the picturesque mountain village of Simon. It was the best time of the year to hike, with the right weather conditions and this was something which motivated us to keep on hiking and enjoying the beautiful nature!

Walking in Transylvania

My group of friends and I were accompanied by Iulian on a 6-day trip through the high hills of Bran county area, between Bucegi and Piatra Craiului mountains. Communication before the trip was clear and we did not have any issues.

Iulian was there to pick us up from the station before we began our hike. He possess a wealth of knowledge and experience of the area that was very much appreciated and value-adding. This included explaining the different cultures and customs and way of living in the villages, the food and animals and other aspec… (>>>)

A thirteen strong group of us, all keen mountaineers, from various parts of Ireland have been for the past number of years, taking a week out in early September to trek another new destination for us across the mountains of Europe.This year it was to be the Carpathian Mountains in Transylvania,Romania.

After some research earlier in the year it was decided, due to the limited time we had, seven days, that we should the services of a local guide. Iulian was to be our guide for the week.

The service that Iulian provided was second to none and I … (>>>)

Transylvania snowshoeing day tour

We really had a great day trip with Iulian in the Carpathian Mountains near Bran village. The landscape was superb and the place very remote – we did not meet anybody the whole day, except a shepherd with his 200 sheep. Even though our trip was planned only two days in advance, everything was just perfect. Especially the small things made the tour with Iulian exceptional: the pick up from and the drop-off directly to our pension in Brasov, the information he gave about Romania from the perspective of a local person, the wind-protected she… (>>>)

“Hello Iulian, I have been on your website several times and I must admit I am very amazed by the scenery of the Romanian countryside. It is awesome. I am from Canada and I am seriously thinking about taking a hiking trip to Romania with my whole family.

As you may see on the photos below, we enjoyed a great weather during our walki… (>>>)

Wild flowers walking tour in Romania, on Transylvanian hills

Traveling in the Bran region is always and I mean always, a beautiful experience. No matter how many times I have already been there, I just can’t get enough.

This time, walking with Rhys and Alexandra from Australia, we were amazed of how beautiful are the flowers, the spontaneous flora of this place. We were also very happy to walk thru virgin forests sections where anyone would expect at any time to meet the famous romanian bear, at any turn.

For me was a real pleasure to see their faces in the pine forest and while admiring all the p… (>>>)

Walking tour in Transylvania, this beautiful part of Romania

Dear Iulian, Thank you so much for showing me a bit of Transylvania ,,this  beautiful  part of Romania”. We did have a wonderful time travelling with you.  It was so nice and easy to follow in your step and have all the time to look around in this great unspoiled nature.  It was wonderful to have the feeling that everything was unspoiled and basic. No other tourists.  Just like the three of us were alone in the world.  We had so much fun and we will have good memories from this trip forever. We hope we can come again to see some more, maybe going t… (>>>)
