Danes have an average of 5 to 6 weeks of holidays every year, so no wonder they are a very wanderous kind of people. Denmark being a relatively small country, the Danes usually travel abroad to follow their typical North-European appetite for outdoor activities.
Torben and Jesper chose the Bran County in Romania for their hiking trip in April 2015, hoping for some nice spring weather and fresh-green landscape. It was spring indeed, but the weather was rather challenging, keeping us at lower altitudes to avoid the unexpected snow up on … (>>>)
If is possible to add a title to a ski tour this has to be: Never stop exploring!
Because things like this have to happen: Bill, a 71 years old Australian gentelman, based in England, never stopped enjoying ski touring around the world. We were very impressed by his ski touring trips record around the world and by his determination when came about weather conditions! On first and last day of our trip, traversing Bucegi mountains from Sinaia to Ialomita valley, weather was bad, quite bad as a English may say! But a mountain lover never st… (>>>)
They are from Zaragoza, near the Pirineos and they were first time in Romania on winter of 2012, when the weather was not on our side.
Anyway, after 3 years they returned to see if we can discover now the Romanian mountains on better weather. And we did! The first plan was Bucegi and Fagaras mountains, but at the end was Bucegi mountains and a speed climbing tour on Poiana Brasov ski resort, on a heavy snowing day!
This time Bucegi mountains were great and we enjoyed everything, snow, sun, weather conditions and not the last the delicious foo… (>>>)
During a winter tour, weather can bring you to heaven or not! Something like this was happening during our splitboard trip in Bucegi mountains, at the end of February, when weather was not as good as we expected!
We did our best, we climbed Tataru peak in one of the days when was worth to go out, but the most beautiful day was the last one, when we get 30 cm of fresh snow, and we enjoyed our way back to Sinaia!
Enjoy the photos,

Middle of February was not so very friendly with us. Weather was good, plenty of sun and good weather but pretty windy and the snow was pretty much packed in wind layers, so not very easy to enjoy a ski tour.
But even like this we find our ways to beautiful places to enjoy viewing the surrounding of the South East of Transylvania, Bran county, Piatra Craiului mountains.
After Bucegi mountains we visited Peles castle and Brasov city, our home town, and we were for two day skiing on Poiana Brasov ski resort. Slopes and snow quality were outsta… (>>>)
Es ist die Jahreszeit wo sich viele auf den kommenden Frühling freuen und viele träumen weiter vom Schnee und den ersten Schispuren im strahlenden Pulver hinter sich zu lassen. Eine Jahreszeit wenn die Tage länger sind, die Sonne stärker aber immer wieder noch genug Kälte dabei ist um dem lang nachgejagden Schnee genießen zu können.
Nach einer Woche mit relativ wenig geignetem Wetter für Schitouren, bin ich letztes Wochenende mit Michael in Bucegi-Gebirge Schitouren gegangen und wir haben genau den Wechsel zwischen Februar und M… (>>>)
On September 2014 I was kindly asked by Sander to organize a splitboard trip for him and his girlfriend, Elzbieta. Both were beginners in touring and splitboading, and were very clear on the tours they request: more touring then climbing peaks. And this we did. We enjoyed four days in Bucegi mountains and two days in Piatra Craiului national park.
As is in January here, we didn’t have too many sunny moments, but we were happy with the snow quality, the views and the most important ever, we have all the mountains just for us and those b… (>>>)
Four days of mild, relaxed hiking on the hills of Bran Country and up in Bucegi Mountains passed by like a nice, warm summer breeze with David and Catherine. Lush green pastures were feasting our eyes, a surprising encounter for the end of August, when all vegetation is starting to show the sings of autumn.
It was a perfect escape from a busy place for our two guests, who thoroughly enjoyed every minute, every meter of quiet trail, serene forest or majestic mountain crest. Batteries charging time at its best, just a couple of hours flight f… (>>>)
On the last years we deal quite a lot with hikers or bikers from Benelux countries. Well, I can say from the flat countries of Benelux. We were warned by Sigge to be carefully with them, because they bike and hike flat. Sometime they were very good prepared for climbs on bikes or on hikes, or sometime they were well surprised when they have to climb 1000 m in one climb. But this may happen when you travel for an active vacation. And when this active vacation happen to be in Carpathian mountains, be sure that we can find 500 or 1000 meters to climb f… (>>>)
Ausrine, Karolis, Aurimas și Tadas drove 1500km from Lithuania to Romania with four bikes on the rooftop of their car, hoping for some unforgettable mountain biking experiences in the Romanian Carpathian Mountains, near Brașov City. And that’s precisely what they’ve got.
We rode our bikes together on nicely flowing trails and technical single tracks, on long climbs and endless descents, through forests an pastures, over roots and rocks. We enjoyed some really unusual weather, going through sun, rain, clouds, win… (>>>)
