Sci escursionismo nei Monti Bucegi, Transylvania- 17/25 marzo 2018

Neve , neve e ancora neve!!! una forte perturbazione ha interessato la Romania durante la nostra vacanza tra i monti della Romania. Peccato, perché abbiamo visto pochissimo panorama , però abbiamo attraversato boschi da favola, tra monasteri, castelli e gole .Il programma originario è stato necessariamente modificato ma, grazie alla conoscenza e all’esperienza di Iulian, la nostra guida, abbiamo comunque realizzato in sicurezza e con divertimento la traversata che ci ha portato da Sinaia a Cota 2000, a Petra Arsa, alla … (>>>)

Cross country skiing in the Bucegi Mountains, Transylvania – March 17/25, 2018

At the end of March snow Gods were on our side, snow was enough and good quality for our cross country skiing tour in Bucegi and Postavaru mountains. The group of happy people from Genova enjoy the tour all the time, despite the weather conditions, low visibility, cold and windy, but hey, is March, is winter! We use the gps to find the Sphinx of Bucegi, but we find it, so foggy was up there! Enjoy the photos, Iulian, March 2018

Winter touring in magical Transylvania

 

The trails we do hike tours, mountain biking adventures or trail running trips for three seasons along the year suffer a magical transformation during the winter months. No flocks of sheep or scattered cows grazing on the vast pastures, no dogs roaming around the deserted farms, nothing to disturb a frozen landscape. Everything comes to a stand still, as if mesmerized by the truly unique landscape.

If you are lucky, as Philippa and David were, to have your trip programmed just when some fresh snow is coming, it gets even better. … (>>>)

West Tyrone Ramblers on trip to Romanian mountains

From time to time, some Irish ramblers go abroad, and they are hungry to discover new destinations. Few years ago, Martin and his friends landed in Carpathian mountains for a tour, together with another 10 friends.

This July Mary and her friends came to Romania to enjoy a week walking on Bran county high hills and Bucegi mountains. They are used to walk almost every weekend in Ireland, under different weather conditions, so our beautiful weather was as a gift for them! We enjoy the beautiful walking days on the high hills of Bran county an… (>>>)

Swedes enjoying the Carpathian mountains

Sometimes it is simply better to let our guests tell the story. Without much ado, here it is:

“We are a group of four Swedes who love exploring different countries and especially the mountains and the country side on bike, by foot and on skies. This year we decided to travel to Romania to test the Carpathians on mountain bikes. The expectations were set high after reading the web page and the professional contact with Horia and Iulian before arriving in Romaina. And indeed, the Carpathians and our experiences during the week didn’… (>>>)

Wild flower walking tour in Transylvanian Alps

They came all the way from Australia, visiting Tinne’s family in Holland but also to see the wild flower-rich meadows that Transylvania is known for. In some parts the horse and cart is still the normal mode of transport, and hay is cut and stacked by hand – an everyday reality. We wound our way up through forested mountains in Bucegi and along fertile valleys with views of steep alpine meadows in Simon village with an extraordinary diversity of flowers. The beautiful farm land of Magura mountain village, in Piatra Craiu… (>>>)

Simple: powder splitboarding in Carpathian mountains

At the beginning of our tour, Bucegi mountains were just a big desert, without sand, sorry, snow! But at least was blue sky!

Second day, the same blue sky, but we manage to find some nice powder for some long lines! Well, then we had a situation, meaning a snow storm came over Bucegi, and true winter finally arrived in Carpathian mountains. After we traverse Dudele mountains, from Bucegi to upper parts of Moeciu de Sus mountain village, in true snow storm, we had a really big surprise: at least 50-70 cm of fresh powder snow, untouched, was th… (>>>)

Exploring Romania, walking, culture, enjoy tasty food

A conversation with a Romanian taxi driver in London a few years ago put Romania on my travel radar. He enthusiastically described the beautiful scenery and many hiking options available in his home country. From the beginning of our correspondence with Iulian, he was prompt and efficient in dealing with our enquiries which gave us confidence in his professionalism. The outstanding feature of Iulian’s company is that it genuinely offers tours which are tailored to the specific needs of the group and the itinerary is flexibl… (>>>)

Explore Romania, enjoy mountains and culture

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… (>>>)

Israeli mountain bikers in Bucegi Mountains

The Israeli mountain bikers seem generally reluctant to go for a full-mountain experience. Lacking experience in tackling long ascents and natural mountain trails, they more often than not opt for “safer” programs, with more cable car lifts, minibus transfers, fewer hours on the trails, etc.

Ronnen, Shane, Motti and Zeev where ready to get out of their comfort zone, opting for our true mountain Bucegi Circuit mtb tour. And they’ve got an experience they will brag about for years to come. A true mountain biking e… (>>>)
