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… (>>>)
With Iulian away to study the effect of the global warming on the ski touring activities in Switzerland, I had the honor to open the 2013 hiking season at mountainguide.ro. Together with Anne and Martha, we enjoyed mild weather and quiet trails in Bran County, through the Zărnești Gorges, the villages of Peștera, Șirnea, Fundata and Moeciu de Sus. As you can tell from the photos.
În lipsa lui Iulian, plecat în Elveția să studieze efectul încălzirii globale asupra schiului de tură în Elveția, mi-a revenit mie onoarea de a deschide sezo… (>>>)
Was a walking tour in Piatra Craiului national park, and the mountains villages from the area of Bucegi mountains. Dr. Zauke came to Romania for an extended holiday, and also was coming to meet his daugther Claudia, who is free travelling journeywoman, working as a roof maker. I meet the this type of persons, free travelling journeyman, back in 2003, when I work with some of them at Valea Sambetei hut, in Fagaras mountains!

On my those 12 years of mountain guiding and organizing outdoor tours in Carpathian garden, I have learned that one image is more valuable then 1000 words. I invite you to see some images from my last “Explore Carpathian garden, walking & culture in Romania” tour in South East of Transylvania, together with Tatiana and Nasser.
We did a walk from village to village, on one of the most surprising and beautiful part of Transylvania, where you meet real nature and local people every day. After the walking tour, we visite… (>>>)
A short but nice hiking tour in Bucegi mountains, with a group of men from Holland. They choose to meet for a hiking tour in Romania, and they came from all over the world, from Amsterdam, from Munich and from … Shanghai. We had good weather, and this was a good part, because they enjoy the tour.
First night we stayed in Brasov city, enjoying a good dinner and visiting the city. Next day we climbed Omu peak in Bucegi mountains, and we hiked to Ialomita valley on the border between Austro – Hungarian empire and Romania, Drumul Gra… (>>>)
This last weekend, 14 May 2011, we just finished the longest mountain biking tour ever :-). We started in August 2010 in Simon village and finished it in May 2011 further 20 kilometers away, near Zarnesti. You’d say quite a short ride for such a long time and you’d be right. The plan was to do the tour over one weekend last summer, but after a gorgeous Saturday the rain came. We weren’t able to reschedule the second part of the tour until this May, so voila, mystery revealed.
Steve and Robbie wanted to go on some more techni… (>>>)
in middle of April was a really winter in South East part of Transylvania, but after 10 days all the snow, like 1 meter, was gone and the terrain was just dry as nothing was there with one week before. Together with a Danish person, I did a 5 days walking tour on the high hills between Bucegi and Piatra Craiului mountains. Weather was good, not completely blue sky, but was ok. Below you may see some photos from our tour.
Kind regards, Iulian Cozma… (>>>)
