You’d say rain is a major downer when going for a walking trip. Who wouldn’t prefer a nice, sunny, warm day on the trails instead of marching around, across or simply through muddy puddles, with rain falls ranging from light drizzles to heavy hail, with constantly wet shoes, clothes, etc.
Still, if you love mountains, you enjoy them no matter how the weather is. That’s exactly what we did, in the select company of seven Swedish guests that we guided through Bucegi mountains from Sinaia to Moeciu, than across Bran Cou… (>>>)
On my those 12 years of mountain guiding and organizing outdoor tours in Carpathian garden, I have learned that one image is more valuable then 1000 words. I invite you to see some images from my last “Explore Carpathian garden, walking & culture in Romania” tour in South East of Transylvania, together with Tatiana and Nasser.
We did a walk from village to village, on one of the most surprising and beautiful part of Transylvania, where you meet real nature and local people every day. After the walking tour, we visite… (>>>)
Hallo lieber Iulian,
Ja nun bin ich bereits wieder eine Woche in Deutschland und ich denke fast unentwegt an die wunderbaren Tage die wir zusammen mit Dir in Rumänien verbringen durften. Wunderbar deshalb weil bereits im Vorfeld zu erkennen war das es sich bei Dir nicht um den „Normalguide“ handelt. Denn bereits dort habe ich erkannt, das Du wahnsinnig hilfsbereit und flexibel bist. Hatte ich doch fast den Eindruck Du machst Kopfstände für mich. Ja ich sollte wohl alles bekommen was ich mir wünsche – auch eben eine Tour nur für mich all… (>>>)
I can describe the tour on very few words: great people, nice weather, but it will be a pity! So the long version is like this: it was a group of five friends, all from Switzerland, coming for one week ski tour in Romanian mountains, Bucegi and Fagaras. Very nice people, with a lot of humor and a big desire to see new places and to meet local people!
Maybe we didn’t had the best snow conditions, was quite warm for this period of the year, but even like this we enjoyed our ski tours and the visits in Ucea de Sus village, Brasov and Bucharest cit… (>>>)
Well, I can start this snow report very simple. We were doing some ski tours on a ski resort, but the reality is coming when we saw how much snow was near the slopes or on the forest. And snow start to be bigger and bigger.
After a hiking, biking and walking summer season, when sometime we pray for a rain, the winter start without big promises for our 100 mm wide skis. But I was thinking: well, Summer was great, no rain, very nice weather, so I enjoy it, then winter have to be beautiful, if you can say beautiful when you speak about winter 😉 For my fe… (>>>)
I was asked many times by my guests if I’m not bored to do tours in the past 11 years over and over the same places, over and over same mountains, and clearly my answer is NO! First of all, I did tours with hundreds of different guests, from all over the world, and all of them have different stories to share, and all of them were surprised by my country, Romania. I can say that most of them came with not so many expectations about a hiking or a cultural tour in Romania, but at the end of the tour they really changed their opinion about my country… (>>>)
Crumblies in Bucegi Mountains – Having walked and climbed in India, Africa, Slovakia, Czech Republik, Morocco and all over the UK, Crumblies Walking Club (UK) turned their attentions to Romania in early October 2010.
