It was a tour like not other! In 11 days we hiked ~230 km, we climbed 12.000 meters and we descent 12.000 meters. Yes, in Romanian Carpathian mountains! And we hiked in wild mountains, where we meet just shepherds, sheep and dogs, and as usualy just few persons.
Juergen and Michael came from Germany, with a only wish: to do a traverse of Carpathian mountains in Romania, and we did it!
I hiked all of this mountains many times, but not in row, so also was really pleasure for me to do this tour! We stay in mountain huts, mountain refuge and tents! W… (>>>)
Autumn is almost here, but we still enjoy warm days and blue sky! The tour presented here was done on the famous area of Bran village, on the high hills from this area, on the region of Poarta, Simon and Moeciu de Sus mountain villages, and not the last in Piatra Craiului national park.
Moritz, a German young man, who’s working in Bucharest since 4 years, was visited by his mother, and he take the opportunity of beautiful autumn days to show to his mother the beauty of the Romanian country side.
As always, our host was mrs. Minerva, who d… (>>>)
Sfarsit de vacanta pe dealurile Branului
Pe ultima suta de metri a vacantei de vara 2012, Simona si Magda le-au adus pe Bianca si pe Sofie in Tara Branului, la o cura de aer de munte, sport si mancare sanatoasa. O finala incarcare de baterii inaintea noului an scolar. Dupa cum vedeti in fotografiile de mai jos, vremea a fost minunata, locurile de exceptie. Chiar daca nu e evident din fotografii, mancarea a fost si ea pe masura – portiile fara numar de supe si ciorbe savurate de Sofie stau marturie. Doamna Minerva, gazda noastra din sa… (>>>)
Was macht man, wenn die Fotokamera, die man sehr oft mit viel Begeisterung benutzt, kaputt ist…. Am Anfang fühlt man sich verloren…
Ich habe eine Übung von einem Freund bekommen: Ich sollte bewusst und nur dem Handy fotografieren. Zu diesem Zeitpunkt habe ich Wenke getroffen. Wir sind zusammen in den Berge gewandert und sie hatte auch eine besondere Art zu fotografieren. Sie benutzt nur Dias. Das hat mich an alte Zeiten erinnert. Ebenso darüber nachzudenken war sehr gut. Mit Dias, ebenso mit Papierfilmen, musste man sich gut … (>>>)
Two days of thrilling riding on the natural bike park called Postavaru Mountain and across the gorgeous beauties of Piatra Craiului Mountains, with Sigge and Arnon. Great weather, challenging trails, tones of adrenaline. Last but not least, a great company. What more does one need for a perfect weekend out in the wild?
As always, we feel privileged to live in a place like Brasov, with easy access to beautiful mountains, superb scenery and amazing trails.

Traveling in the Bran region is always and I mean always, a beautiful experience. No matter how many times I have already been there, I just can’t get enough.
This time, walking with Rhys and Alexandra from Australia, we were amazed of how beautiful are the flowers, the spontaneous flora of this place. We were also very happy to walk thru virgin forests sections where anyone would expect at any time to meet the famous romanian bear, at any turn.
For me was a real pleasure to see their faces in the pine forest and while admiring all the p… (>>>)
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… (>>>)
My wife bought this trip for me for Christmas and for my wife it was an importance that I could travel with a guide where trust and personality were the key words. And I must say that it was as she hoped.
My trip was a mountaineering trip over 5 days. Before I even arrived, I have had a long and positive dialogue with Iulian, who even offered to lend me some equipment that i needed. I received lots of good advice and I felt very well prepared to be alone in Romania.
The tour, which included only me, took place under great conditions because we were… (>>>)
Maybe the mountains are the same as last weekend, but the weather, the clouds and the hikers make the difference as always. This weekend, 26-27 November, I was traversing Bucegi mountains with Beth, Carmen, Marc and Catalin, on a easier but challenging route. We hiked on the plateau of Bucegi mountains from Babele cable car station to Omu peak the highest peak in Bucegi mountains, enjoying the views which surround us wherever we look, because the weather was one more time on our side.
I left Brasov early morning, the clouds were the same … (>>>)
Was a beautiful Monday morning when we start our walk on the hills of Bran village. I hiked on this hills few weeks ago with Beth and Marc, and it was almost winter. But the sunny and cold days of Autumn came back, and we were able to enjoy a walk on a sunny day, having the opportunity too see all the mountains and nature around us. Bucegi and Piatra Craiului mountains offer us some of the best opportunities to take nice pictures, and of course we didn’t miss them.
Enjoy the photos,
