Australian hikers in Romanian mountains

Hi Iulian, Back in Australia now after my European sojourn and a bit sadden to read the news about the unrest in Bucharest. I hope something positive comes from it all.

I want to thank you for not only organizing our tour but guiding it. After 40 odd of years of walking either solo, guiding or occasionally being guided, I guess I know a bit about what makes a good guide and I have to say you are one of the best I have come across.

Your attention to detail, organizational and leadership skills and ability to connect to us “oldies” ensured we ha… (>>>)

Bucegi traverse in Romania

We were visiting Romania with work, and bringing customers with us we wanted to do something on two days we had spare with our group of six. I rarely use a guide, but due to the timescale and wanting everything to go smoothly I found Iulian to assist. From the outset he was a true professional, and through emails back and forth we had a plan, and he’d arranged transfers from our hotel to the start of the walk. The night prior to our trip Iulian contacted me to say that 30cm of snow had fallen on the area of our planned route, and he suggested a… (>>>)

Escursioni in montagna e cultura nelle montagne Transilvania, Bucegi e Fagaras

Grazie mille a voi per la perfetta organizzazione: era veramente difficile riuscire a modificare in tempo reale il programma di un viaggio funestato dal maltempo, ma voi ci siete riusciti. E grazie alla splendida guida Horia, che ha trasformato ogni problema in un fatto positivo!

Escursione in montagna in Romania, Bucegi e Fagaras

Se si amano natura e cultura, la Transilvania è la metà perfetta! E grazie all’eccellente organizzazione di Iulian e alla ottima guida di Horia ne abbiamo potuto apprezzare tutta la sua bellezza. Il nostro viaggio prevedeva due giorni di trekking nei monti Bucegi seguiti da cinque giorni di traversata nei selvaggi monti Fagaras. Un itinerario meraviglioso che attraversa boschi da fiaba e arriva fino ai paesaggi d’alta montagna. Purtroppo il maltempo non ci ha permesso di coprire tutta la traversata ma Iulian e Horia hanno s… (>>>)

Hiking in Fagaras mountains climbing the highest peak in Romania

Thanks Iulian for this great trip! We had two fantastic days in the Fagaras mountains, and your expertise, knowledge and thoughtfulness added a lot to our fabulous experience. You set us up for a great challenge, that tested our stamina, but what a great tour we had with you and Nic 🙂 I highly recommend you for others seeking adventures in the Romanian mountains.

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, a… (>>>)

Ski tour in Transylvania, Carpathian mountains

Seit Jahren stand es im Raum, dass wir mal in den Karpaten Skitouren gehen. 2017 war der Entschluss endlich gefasst und uns war klar: das machen wir mangels Orts- und Schneelagenkenntnis mit einem lokalen Guide. Nach kurzer Recherche und Kontaktaufnahme war die Wahl für Iulian leicht getroffen.

Ende Februar 2018 dann zu fünft per Flug von München nach Sibiu und von da an waren wir rundum betreut mit Fahrten, Unterkünften, Essen, Rundgängen zu Sehenswürdigkeiten, etc. Wir waren erst etwas skeptisch, denn wir hatten genau di… (>>>)

Magical snowshoeing tour in Transylvanian mountains

We are two keen, but not super-fit walkers, who are just hitting their 60s. We spent 8 days in Romania under the guidance of Iulian and his team. Everything was tailored to our capabilities and interests and we recommend this excellent company without reservation. The original plan had been for us to walk into the Bucegi mountains and stay in a mountain hut for two nights. Before the ascent, Horia (our superb guide) took us on local, quite tough walks and it became obvious that the mountain climb would not be suitable for us. So the plan … (>>>)

Amplid splitboards in Romanian mountains

Bereits zum zweiten mal ging es in die Karparten zum Splitboarden. Letztes Jahr waren wir schon begeistert von der Natur den Touren und dem tollen Essen. Waren wir bis jetzt „nur“ im Bucegi Gebirge unterwegs, so sollten es diesmal auch ein paar Tage im Fagaras sein. Die Bedingungen waren im Durchschnitt ziemlich gut und so hatten wir einige tolle Touren mit teilweise großartigen Abfahrten.

Iulian passte die Trips immer perfekt auf das Wetter und unseren Bedürfnissen an. So ging es auch mal durch die tief verschneite Landscha… (>>>)

Explore Romania, Danube Delta, Dobrogea and Maramures county

We returned for our second consecutive summer in Romania visiting the Danube Delta and also the Maramures region in the north. It was the perfect combination of bird-watching and hiking. Iulian’s local knowledge is extensive and his enthusiasm for local food and culture is contagious. The accommodation provided involved a variety of quality hotels and homestays and we will always remember the hospitality of Ion and Maria in Botiza. Botiza provided us with the opportunity to witness the last surviving peasant culture in Eu… (>>>)
