Our 2019 mtb season was a blast

Our 2019 mtb season was a blast

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… (>>>)

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… (>>>)

Our Romanian Bike Trip, Israeli mountain bikers

We are 4 Israeli Bikers who have been on two previous European Bike Trips. We have been riding for 15 years and have a lot of experience. But this last week exceeded it all by far. From the minute that we were met at the airport until the last drop off back at the airport, a week later, it was all about personal attention, responsibility and true caring that was displayed by our amazing guide Horia. Behind the scenes a lot was going on in the logistics department but up front it as all about great food,superb riding and a lot of fun. We truly learnt … (>>>)

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… (>>>)

Traverse of Bucegi mountains, hiking in Transylvania

I would highly recommend this company. Iulian provided for us a personalised itinerary of hiking through the Transylvanian mountains and villages. The scenery was picturesque and the tour was very well organised and run. Thanks again Iulian!

American guests, hiking in Romania

Our 6 day, 5 night trekking adventure in Romania was fantastic. Iulian picked a good route for us to see different parts of the Carpathian mountains. Every day we enjoyed beautiful scenery and great vistas. One of the highlights of the experience was our guide, Iulian. He is very knowledgeable and was clearly excited to share both the beautiful Romanian landscape and the wonderful culture with our family. He accommodated our every need and his easy going nature made him an absolute pleasure to spend time with. We have been on many guide… (>>>)

Mon père adorait les Carpartes

Curieuse d’apprendre plus sur la région où mon père a grandi, je voyageais une deuxième fois en Transylvanie, cette fois ci avec mon conjoint qui adore les montagnes et les aventures. J’ai contacté Iulian pour demander de l’aide car pour moi c’était la première fois que je faisais une randonnée dans la montagne. Il a proposé un tour de 3 jours. Nous avons passé 10 jours en Transylvanie avec la famille et des amis de Boița. Puis le jour du depart à la montagne est arrivé. Horia est venu nous chercher à Boița pour aller à Avrig où nous avons lais… (>>>)

My dad loved the Carpathian mountains – Belgium hikers in Romania

Wanting to learn more about the region my father grew up, I travelled once more to Transylvania, this time with my partner who loves mountains and adventures. Since it was the first time for me to do a hike, I contacted Iulian and asked for help. We agreed on a 3-day trip in the Făgăraș Mountains.

We spend 10 days in Transylvania by ourself with family and friends from Boița. Then the big day of departure in the mountains was there…

Horia picked us up in Boița and we went to Avrig where we left the car and started to climb up to Cabana Bârcaciu. G… (>>>)
