Excursiones de senderismo y culturales en Rumania

Cuando un grupo de españoles de la segunda edad viene a Rumanía para hacer senderismo y visitas culturales es un buen agüero 😉 Tengo mucho gusto en conocer personas desde todos los rincones del mundo, pero no puedo decir que no he ido en las montañas con españoles antes, pero tenía una sospecha que este grupo iba a ser uno especial. O más especial. Y así fue. Comenzando con la comunicación antes de la excursión hasta la alegría que leía en las caras de los participantes durante los recorridos en Bucegi, Baiului, Piatra Mare o Fagaras. Una al… (>>>)

Walking in Piatra Craiului National Park, Romania

With Iulian away to study the effect of the global warming on the ski touring activities in Switzerland, I had the honor to open the 2013 hiking season at mountainguide.ro. Together with Anne and Martha, we enjoyed mild weather and quiet trails in Bran County, through the Zărnești Gorges, the villages of Peștera, Șirnea, Fundata and Moeciu de Sus. As you can tell from the photos.

În lipsa lui Iulian, plecat în Elveția să studieze efectul încălzirii globale asupra schiului de tură în Elveția, mi-a revenit mie onoarea de a deschide sezo… (>>>)

Haute route of Carpathian mountains, traverse of 7 mountains in Romanian Carpathians

It was a tour like not other! In 11 days we hiked ~230 km, we climbed 12.000 meters and we descent 12.000 meters. Yes, in Romanian Carpathian mountains! And we hiked in wild mountains, where we meet just shepherds, sheep and dogs, and as usualy just few persons.

Juergen and Michael came from Germany, with a only wish: to do a traverse of Carpathian mountains in Romania, and we did it!

I hiked all of this mountains many times, but not in row, so also was really pleasure for me to do this tour! We stay in mountain huts, mountain refuge and tents! W… (>>>)

Hiking in Carpathian garden, Romanian mountains

Sometimes less is more, even in mountaineering Every now and then we have guests that overestimate their abilities – or underestimate the difficulties of the Romanian trails high up in the mountains. The altitudes here are not as impressive as in the Alps or the Dolomite mountains (the main ridges are just above 2000m with highest peaks barely scratching the 2500m limit), but the vertical drops from the valleys to the main ridges are more or less similar, with equally demanding trails. We are proud to say that we never let that sp… (>>>)

Bergwandern in Rumänien Karpaten

Wenn eine Touristengruppe aus dem Süd Tirol ein anderes Wander-Reiseziel als die Dolomiten auswählt, dann denke ich, dass Dieses etwas Besonderes an sich haben muss. Und wenn manche von den Gästen auch ein zweites Mal an denselben Ort zurückkommen, dann müssen die Berge wirklich etwas an sich haben. Dies, weil die Dolomiten fast alles bieten, was man sich als Bergsteiger wünschen könnte.

Und so haben sich manche von meinen Gästen entschieden auch ein zweites Mal in die Rumänischen Karpaten zu kommen um wandern zu gehen. Ich habe au… (>>>)

Walking in countryside of Romania, trekking tours in Carpathian mountains

“Hello Iulian, I have been on your website several times and I must admit I am very amazed by the scenery of the Romanian countryside. It is awesome. I am from Canada and I am seriously thinking about taking a hiking trip to Romania with my whole family.

Walking tour in Carpathian mountains, Transylvanian hills

Was a walking tour in Piatra Craiului national park, and the mountains villages from the area of Bucegi mountains. Dr. Zauke came to Romania for an extended holiday, and also was coming to meet his daugther Claudia, who is  free travelling journeywoman, working as a roof maker. I meet the  this type of persons, free travelling journeyman, back in 2003, when I work with some of them at Valea Sambetei hut, in Fagaras mountains!

Hiking in Fagaras mountains, culture trip in Transylvania

A tour that allowed to me to meet very interesting persons, from diferent countries and cultures. We hiked in Fagaras mountains, the Transylvanian Alps, climbing the highest peaks in Romania, Moldoveanu and Negoiu peaks, and as always, we enjoyed a dinner on my grandmother village, Ucea de Sus.

Bergwandern in Siebenbürgen, Rumänien

I hiked with Monika for the 6th time in Romanian mountains on this beautiful summer! This time we hiked on the central portion of Fagaras mountains, the portion what we never hiked until now on past tours. It was as we expected, good weather, well I can say maybe to hot, and full with beautiful mountain flowers. Overall is was a wonderful tour, and we both enjoyed a lot! Our speed was also good, so we hiked in just three days from Barcaciu chalet to Victoria town, over Negoiu peak and Custura Saratii ridge. Looking forward Monika to ski with yo… (>>>)

Photo tour in Fagaras Mountains and Medieval Transylvania, Romania

Photo tour in Fagaras Mountains and Medieval Transylvania

Our very first guests from Hong Kong arrived in Romania this summer in order to see the Fagaras Mountains and some of the historical sites in the South of Transylvania. While the trekking proved to be more demanding physically and technically than anticipated, the photo opportunities where always in abundance.

Great weather up in the mountains but also at the fortified churches in Cincsor and Cincu, at the old Cistercian Monastery in Carta or at the Sambata Orthodox Monaste… (>>>)
