Rainy days in Fagaras mountains

Hello Iulian. Just a short note to say how much I enjoyed my time in Romania, and especially on the Fagaras Trail with you and Jon. Thank you very much for guiding us so well. You struck the important balance between making our trek enjoyable, challenging and safe. The walking tested my fitness and my kit and we certainly experienced a full range of changeable weather conditions! A sense of humour, in-depth local knowledge, and an awareness of what is safe in the conditions are all important on the mountains and you demonstrated all of the… (>>>)

Enjoy hiking in Fagaras mountains

Together with Jon and Chris, I backpacked half of Fagaras mountains ridge on one of the wettest period of 2016, even if was July. Chris came from the UK especially for this tour, Jon works in Bucharest and does a lot of runs in the Romanian mountains, but the Fagaras mountains are special mountains, which require a lot of knowledge and skill. In order for both of them to enjoy this challenging hike, we hiked together. As usual, we started from the East Side, from Piatra Craiului national park. After a warm evening at 7 Crai in Plaiul Foii, we s… (>>>)

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… (>>>)

British friends hiking on snowy trails in Fagaras mountains

It was Angus’s turn to organize a hiking trip for his friends in 2016, and following a tradition of exploring less popular destinations, he opted for a trip to Romania to hike up the highest peak in Fagaras mountains. Up till now they went in self-guided tours, but going for a guided tour in the Romanian Alps proved to be a really great idea. The weather turned quite bad up at more than 2000m, with low temperatures, first snow of the year and disturbing winds. The initial plan, going from Sambata all the way to Balea Lac, had to be abando… (>>>)

Hiking trip in Bucegi and Piatra Craiului mountains

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!

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… (>>>)

Two day trips in Romania

I was in Brasov for a business trip and decided to arrive a few days early to see a bit of the country side. Horia and Iulian were professional, flexible and willing to accommodate our schedules. We had 2 days and wanted to spend a day of biking and a day of hiking. They had no issue working with us to find the right combination of activity. They were flexible before and during the days to adjust based on weather, conditions and our desires. After a day of hiking Horia even suggested we make an unscheduled stop by Bran Castle. We had 2 awesome days … (>>>)
