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… (>>>)

Recharging batteries on a hiking weekend in Bucegi and Bran Country

Every now and then (and there is quite a big gap between now and then) we get the chance to hike with fellow Romanians. It gets a little bit weird in the beginning, as we are much more used to speak English than Romanian, but we adapt easy to any situation :).

Hikers tend to be friendly, open minded people, with plenty of stories to share. This time was no different, and the ever changing scenery of the Bran Country and the Bucegi Natural Park can only  add to the atmosphere. Starting in a green and sunny Moeciu de Sus, going up to the last patches o… (>>>)

Hiking trip in Bucegi mountains, South East Carpathian, Romania

Best way to get fit for a wedding party on the other side of the world? Three good days of proper mountain hiking through all kind of weather, from mild spring to full-winter blizzards and thunder-storm pouring snow.

Maybe that wasn’t exactly what our two Canadian friends had in mind when they asked us to help organize a few days of hiking in the Carpathian Mountains, to fill in some vacation days before joining some friends’ wedding. But that’s definitely what they’ve got on their plates, and they totally enj… (>>>)

Rumänien, Wanderung in den südlichen Karpaten

Nach zahlreichen Hüttenwanderungen in den Alpen (E5 und Berliner Höhenweg), den Dolomiten und Korsika in den vergangenen Jahren haben wir uns dieses Jahr entschieden, den Empfehlungen von Freunden zu folgen und in die Karpaten nach Rumänien aufzubrechen. Wir wollten in die unberührte Natur, Land und Leute kennenlernen und vom stressigen Alltag abspannen. Über eine kurze Internetrecherche (die alles in allem nicht viele Treffer ergeben hat) sind wir erst im April auf die Internetseite von Iulian Cozma Outdoor Adventures ges… (>>>)

Mountain biking Romania, Ciucas, Bucegi and Piatra Craiului national park

Two words come to mind when remembering our six days expert mountain biking trip we organized for four Austrian riders. Brutal und Total. I kept hearing those two words day after day, trail after trail, uphill after uphill and descent after descent. I am not a German language expert, but it was pretty obvious our friends were really excited by their mountain biking experience in the Transylvanian Carpathian Mountains.

We covered five different mountains – Ciucaș, Grohotișului, Baiului, Bucegi and Piatra Craiului – t… (>>>)
