Hiking Fagaras mountains in Romania

During my recent visit to the Fagaras mountains I could see oceans of Alpenrosen, hear stories about giant bears, see flying alpine chickens and majestic chamois, walk the steepest chicken breast, experience the most yellow dormitory room, drink the the blackest coffee, almost touch kingseize and smallseize water-buffalos and observe caring storks high above the village, taste yellow caviar and watch active grandmas in story tale like gardens – making the strongest schnaps and – without a doubt – now I am in love with Romania – the … (>>>)

Walking in Transylvania

My group of friends and I were accompanied by Iulian on a 6-day trip through the high hills of Bran county area, between Bucegi and Piatra Craiului mountains. Communication before the trip was clear and we did not have any issues.

Iulian was there to pick us up from the station before we began our hike. He possess a wealth of knowledge and experience of the area that was very much appreciated and value-adding. This included explaining the different cultures and customs and way of living in the villages, the food and animals and other aspec… (>>>)

Two day trips in Romania

I was in Brasov for a business trip and decided to arrive a few days early to see a bit of the country side. Horia and Iulian were professional, flexible and willing to accommodate our schedules. We had 2 days and wanted to spend a day of biking and a day of hiking. They had no issue working with us to find the right combination of activity. They were flexible before and during the days to adjust based on weather, conditions and our desires. After a day of hiking Horia even suggested we make an unscheduled stop by Bran Castle. We had 2 awesome days … (>>>)

Backpacking in Romania, Fagaras main ridge traverse

Hi Iulian. I didn’t write anything before because I’m feeling very close to Eileen’s testimonial. Nevertheless, I felt today that it was important to write down how much humanity I found in the shepherds, the people in mountain huts, and in you guys. I felt really connected to the reality by your side, here in the Fàgàras mountains. It’s an invaluable feeling and I’m happy to have seen that it is possible to be connected with today’s world without loosing our essential humanity. Thank you Iulia… (>>>)

Tours in the Transylvanian area

Wir verlebten drei abwechslungsreiche Wochen in Siebenbürgen, zauberhafte Landschaften, spektakuläre Karpartengipfel, schöne Städte, nette Menschen….. Zunächst 9 Tage geführte Wanderungen durch die Fagaras und Bucegi Mountains. Dabei zeigte Julian sich als kompetenter und umsichtiger Bergführer, der alle Wege kennt, die Belastungsgrenzen seiner Gäste einschätzen und die Wanderetappen ihren Bedürfnissen und Vorlieben anpassen kann. Auch ein Wetterumschwung mit zwei Tagen Dauerregen ohne Sicht in den Bergen war f… (>>>)

Romania hiking, Fagaras ridge traverse

Hi Iulian!

What can I say more…the tour was amazing. We really enjoyed being together and getting to know you this time. You are a great guide, but before that, a great human being. I felt comfortable, not stressed and it was a good thing that you were able to adapt the program in function of the weather, etc. Also, I enjoyed our little mountain thief (raspberries, bluberries) 🙂

The mountains are amazingly beautiful, pictures trying to capt how breathtaking the landskape is…but the best is to be over there. Such a special energy.

Overall, … (>>>)

Wandern in Karpaten

Wir haben eine zweitägige Tour mit Iulian im Bucegi-Gebirge unternommen. Als Gruppe von mehreren Freunden war die Organisation am Anfang nicht ganz einfach: Terminfindung, Absprachen, Urlaubspläne, Unentschlossenheiten usw. mussten einbezogen werden. Dabei hatten wir mit Iulian wirklich Glück, der bei der genauen Planung und den Terminen flexibel und anpassungsfähig war und bei der Kommunikation stets schnell auf Fragen geantwortet hat. Am Ende sind wir vier, die am Ende mitgefahren sind, mehr als froh, dass wir die Tour … (>>>)

Hiking in Bucegi mountains June 2015

We spent two great days with Iulian, hiking in the Bucegi mountains. Bringing together a group of friends for an unusual hiking experience actually was not an easy task, with all the individual wishes, appointments, holiday plans, work issues and a bit of indecisiveness here and there. Iulian was a great help there, being flexible with the dates, the planning and quick in replying to any of my questions. Everyone of us four, who ended up joining the little expedition, is now really glad they did not miss it! The trip was very well organiz… (>>>)
