Climbing highest peak in Romania

Greetings, In October 2010 I tried with Beth and Marc to climb Moldoveanu peak, on a three days hike, but the weather was not on our side. Up at Podragu hut was already snow, and too much snow for a safe climb on the top of Romania, Moldoveanu peak, 2544 m high, so we had to re-schedule the tour.

And we decide to do the tour on June 16-18, this year, and we succeeded, as you may see on the photos below. The tour start from Balea lake, with a wonderful hike to Podragu hut. Corina just opened Podragu hut with a day before we arrived there, so all was good … (>>>)

Wandern in Rumänien, Wandern in Siebenbürgen Bergdörfer

Greetings,

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… (>>>)

Walking trip in Romania

Greetings,

in middle of April was a really winter in South East part of Transylvania, but after 10 days all the snow, like 1 meter, was gone and the terrain was just dry as nothing was there with one week before. Together with a Danish person, I did a 5 days walking tour on the high hills between Bucegi and Piatra Craiului mountains. Weather was good, not completely blue sky, but was ok. Below you may see some photos from our tour.

Kind regards, Iulian Cozma… (>>>)

Happiness of hiking

It’s quite possible that a vacation in Romania might pose some challenges for the average American tourist, especially when planning to visit castles, monasteries, and historical towns, as well as complete a 4-night hut-to-hut hiking traverse of the Fagaras Mountains. Challenging, that is, unless your trip is in the capable hands of Iulian Cozma. From our pickup at the Bucharest airport to our 4:30 a.m. departure back to the airport 10 days later, every step of our trip was handled by Iulian with the utmost efficiency and car… (>>>)
