We have planned with our Italian friends a week-long traverse of the Southern Carpathians in July 2018, starting in Sinaia, across Bucegi, than along the main section of the Fagaras ridge, from Sambata to Negoiu.
After a good start in Bucegi mountains, the weather turned for the bad when we moved to Fagaras mountains. Instead of the main ridge traverse, we opted for some easier treks in the lower altitudes, at Negoiu and Barcaciu, but also an attempt towards Moldoveanu Peak via Turnuri and Podragu. We may not have the joy of breathing t… (>>>)
We are two keen, but not super-fit walkers, who are just hitting their 60s. We spent 8 days in Romania under the guidance of Iulian and his team. Everything was tailored to our capabilities and interests and we recommend this excellent company without reservation. The original plan had been for us to walk into the Bucegi mountains and stay in a mountain hut for two nights. Before the ascent, Horia (our superb guide) took us on local, quite tough walks and it became obvious that the mountain climb would not be suitable for us. So the plan wa… (>>>)
When a Australian couple want to go home, they still travel. This was doing Zac and his friends, at the end of three years stay in UK. They were going home travelling from country to country, and they stop for few days hiking in Bucegi mountains, South East of Transylvania.
Weather was fantastic, and our traverse of Bucegi was done smoothly and dry!
Enjoy the photos,

Ciao Iulian, grazie per la bellissima settimana (10-16 luglio 2016) che con gli altri amici del Club Alpino Italiano abbiamo trascorso con te in Transilvania. Luoghi meravigliosi, ospitalità cordiale e, specialmente, la tua ottima capacità di condurre il gruppo e di provvedere ad ogni nostra necessità, con una disponibilità e un’attenzione davvero eccezionali. Spero si possa combinare per qualche altra avventura insieme, ancora sui Carpazi o magari sul delta del Danubio.
A presto dunque, buona montagna e buona vita!
4 jours de ski de randonnée en mars 2017 avec Iulian Cozma ont été une expérience merveilleuse. Iulian est un vrai pro que ce soit pour la logistique (transports, hôtels, refuges en montagne) mais aussi dans son métier de guide de montagne : Iulian connait ses montagnes et il connait la neige. C’est aussi un joyeux compagnon qui étonne par la connaissance de son pays et l’affection qu’il lui porte.
A refaire absolument avec Iulian !

Five friends from London came to Romania this winter for a snowshoeing trip across the hills and glens of the Bran Country. Conditions varied from cold winter to warm spring, with fresh snow or pleasant sunshine, with a little bit of mud added to mix. Fortunately no rain, but – we will say it over and over again, as it is simply very trye – there is no such thing as bad weather in the mountains. Just bad clothing.
Everyone’s photo camera was put to good use and abuse, as you can see from the gallery below. Be it a smartphone, a … (>>>)
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!

Had the most amazing 4 days of trekking with Horia. He was an incredible guide and an all-around great guy. Our route took us through some of the most beautiful scenery I have ever seen and I can’t wait to go back to Romania and do it again. I recommend Iulian’s business to everyone I know!

How can i put it on paper when I don’t even find the words for it? It was a tour that I was little worrying about at the beginning but when it started it was everything else but worries. Beautiful trails, people with a lot of joy in hearts and open for everything were a perfect match to have a great experience. This way we succeed really to make the best of our 4 days Trail Running tour. Looking back at these days I still feel the joy and happiness to have run in such a special company, on our home trails.
Thinking more about it, it came. Flow … (>>>)
