Amplid splitboards in Romanian mountains

Bereits zum zweiten mal ging es in die Karparten zum Splitboarden. Letztes Jahr waren wir schon begeistert von der Natur den Touren und dem tollen Essen. Waren wir bis jetzt „nur“ im Bucegi Gebirge unterwegs, so sollten es diesmal auch ein paar Tage im Fagaras sein. Die Bedingungen waren im Durchschnitt ziemlich gut und so hatten wir einige tolle Touren mit teilweise großartigen Abfahrten.

Iulian passte die Trips immer perfekt auf das Wetter und unseren Bedürfnissen an. So ging es auch mal durch die tief verschneite Landschaft zu ei… (>>>)

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… (>>>)

Our Romanian Bike Trip, Israeli mountain bikers

We are 4 Israeli Bikers who have been on two previous European Bike Trips. We have been riding for 15 years and have a lot of experience. But this last week exceeded it all by far. From the minute that we were met at the airport until the last drop off back at the airport, a week later, it was all about personal attention, responsibility and true caring that was displayed by our amazing guide Horia. Behind the scenes a lot was going on in the logistics department but up front it as all about great food,superb riding and a lot of fun. We truly learnt … (>>>)

Exploring Transylvanian mountains, Bucegi and Piatra Craiului

Was the first snow from this year, but we were not scared about it. We were hiking in Bucegi mountains and Piatra Craiului national park, on snow, sun and beautiful weather. They came from Luxembourg, being hiking on other different places before this trip. And, as almost always, Mike, Dan and their friends were surprised by our mountains, and not by our food. We were welcomed by Mircea and Doina Opris in Bucegi mountains, and by Alina from Simon mountains village. Our trips went smooth and calm, enjoying the views, the landscape and all … (>>>)

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!

Falling in love with the Carpathians

Thank you Horia and Iulian for two awesome days in Brasov and Piatra Craiului National Park! When I arrived in Rumania with my car and my bike the only thing I was sure about was that I want to explore some parts of the Carpathians. After a challenging experience on my own I decided on Monday afternoon to ask Iulian to guide me for the next two days: Thursday and Wednesday. I was very lucky! Iulian and Horia made it very spontaneously possible to ride some excellent trails and to have two outstanding days around Brasov! Horia was choosing perf… (>>>)

Israeli trail runners in Romania

באוגוסט 2016 יצאנו עם הרבה חששות והתרגשות שישה חברים לטיול ריצה בהרי רומניה. כולנו רצים מנוסים במרוצי עיר אך עם מעט ניסיון בריצות שטח ועוד פחות ניסיון בריצה בתוואי הררי. לאחר מספר בירורים יצרו קשר עם מספר מדריכים מקומיים אחד מהם היה יוליאן – מדריך טיולים מקומי שיושב בעיר ברשוב. מהמייל הראשון עשה יוליאן רושם מקצועי ורציני מאד. רושם שרק הלך והתחזק עם התקדמות התכנון של הטיול. הטיול תוכנן כך שיכלול ארבעה ימי ריצה מתגלגלים בהרי פגראש, במהלכם החלפנו מספר מלונות, נדרשנו למספר הקפצות רכב וכלל לינה ואוכל במקומות שונים לאורך המסלול, כל התאומים והתכ… (>>>)

Young at heart: mountain biking the trails at 60

I don’t know about you, but I am pretty sure about me: it’s like Lubo and Milo that I want to be when I am sixty years old. On bike, riding single trails, sweating uphill and shouting downhill. Visiting new places, new countries, new mountains.

I read somewhere that the secret to have a healthy heart and a fresh mind is to do something that scares you a little in every day of your life. Well, we definitely provided enough testing moments for Milo and Lubo during the four days of mountain biking we organized for them this August. Th… (>>>)

Ski touring trip in Carpathian mountains, Romania

Was a group of friends and colleagues from university,  who usually enjoy skiing in The Alps, but they decide to see how are the Carpathian mountains in winter time. So, last February we enjoy a ski trip in Bucegi and Fagaras mountains, on perfect sunny days and powder snow! As always, we were almost the only skiers in both areas, and this was one of the nicest part! Bucegi mountains were great, our hosts Doina and Mircea, as always, very charming and welcoming people!

At Balea lake sky was blue, snow was as good as we wish, so the trip was jus… (>>>)
