Many say that the 2019 season marked the end of an era for the various leisure industries, including adventure tourism. Well, if this will be the case, we can honestly say that we ended this said era with a bang. Our 2019 mountain biking season was a brilliant one. Check it out in this short video round-up:
We’ve had some exquisite custom short tours: Daniel, coming from Sweden, open the party in April. Monika and her friends drove to Romania for a longer trip, out of which four days were reserved for mountain biking. Sam flew all the w… (>>>)
You can still find unspoilt mountain territory in Europe, where ski touring, split-boarding, free-ride skiing and snowshoeing can be done on pure wild slopes, without ski lifts, high alpine roads or parking lots in sight.
Grab your gear and come for a winter outdoor adventure up in the Carpathian Mountains, South Transylvania, Romania.
The mountains around Brasov historical city offer great opportunities both for the relaxed ski tourers, and the more adventurous free-ride skiers. There are easy to moderate slopes in Bucegi Mou… (>>>)
The spectacular mountain ridges of the South Carpathian Mountains, stretching from East to West on the Southern limit of Transylvania, Romania, marked the historical border between the Central European great powers and the Ottoman (Turkish) Empire.
Physical borders, as well as empires, are a thing of the past. Cultural and historical heritage, though, are still present. The German order and efficiency is nicely completed by the Oriental relaxed attitude. You can see it in the way the houses are built, streets aligned, public se… (>>>)
You’d say rain is a major downer when going for a walking trip. Who wouldn’t prefer a nice, sunny, warm day on the trails instead of marching around, across or simply through muddy puddles, with rain falls ranging from light drizzles to heavy hail, with constantly wet shoes, clothes, etc.
Still, if you love mountains, you enjoy them no matter how the weather is. That’s exactly what we did, in the select company of seven Swedish guests that we guided through Bucegi mountains from Sinaia to Moeciu, than across Bran Cou… (>>>)
Dear Iulian, Thank you so much for showing me a bit of Transylvania ,,this beautiful part of Romania”. We did have a wonderful time travelling with you. It was so nice and easy to follow in your step and have all the time to look around in this great unspoiled nature. It was wonderful to have the feeling that everything was unspoiled and basic. No other tourists. Just like the three of us were alone in the world. We had so much fun and we will have good memories from this trip forever. We hope we can come again to see some more, maybe going t… (>>>)
Middle of August was hot and busy! It was a weekend tour during one of the busiest weekend for those who choose to go by car up to Balea Lake! I mean, was very busy! I have to walk on the road for 3 km to arrive at the hut, because the latest 3-4 km from Transfagarasean highway was full with cars…
Anyway, out tour was far from the drivers and cars!
After the tour we enjoyed a dinner in Ucea de Sus village, as usual I can say 🙂
Enjoy the photos,

to be very honest my knowledge about German language are not so great, I mean I can say that I speak some German, as basic conversation, but unfortunately for the moment I’m not able to lead a Walking & culture (Wandern und Kultur) tour on our nice mountain villages, but I think that I manage this type of tour very well in English 😉 Luckily Erika and Marcel spoke English, and like this we enjoyed our tour 🙂
My guests on middle of May, 16-21 May, were coming from Berlin, Erika and Marcel, and as you may see from photos below… (>>>)
Are you looking for a new mountain biking destination? One that is off the beaten path, uncrowded, but still within reach? With raw, natural trails that combine flow sections with demanding rock and root gardens? With warm accommodations, great food and experienced guiding and organisation?
