Moldoveanu peak in Fagaras mountains, is the highest peak in Romanian mountains, with a height of 2544 m.
Situated on the East part of Fagaras mountains, the peak is accessible from all possible directions, South, North, East and West, but the most spectacular climb of Moldoveanu peak start from West, from Podragu hut. Are few ways to arrive at Podragu hut, the “easy” but beautiful one, in on Arpasul Mare valley, and after 5-6 hours of hiking, Podragu lake and hut appear!
Most of the climbs of Moldoveanu peak are part of one week, or more, … (>>>)
Wir haben in diesem Sommer Rumänien als ein großartiges Urlaubsland für uns entdeckt und die Wanderung auf den Moldoveanu mit Iulian war für uns ein unvergessliches Highlight.
Schon bei der Kontaktaufnahme über die Homepage und bei der Abstimmung der Reise (Termin, Tour, Gepäck, Anreise, Bezahlung usw.) war der Kontakt super professionell, so dass wir von Anfang an wussten, dass wir in besten Händen sind.
Nachdem wir in Rumänien angekommen waren, haben wir erst einen Tag in Bukarest verbracht. Am darauffolgenden Tag haben wir d… (>>>)
Hello Iulian. Just a short note to say how much I enjoyed my time in Romania, and especially on the Fagaras Trail with you and Jon. Thank you very much for guiding us so well. You struck the important balance between making our trek enjoyable, challenging and safe. The walking tested my fitness and my kit and we certainly experienced a full range of changeable weather conditions! A sense of humour, in-depth local knowledge, and an awareness of what is safe in the conditions are all important on the mountains and you demonstrated all of the… (>>>)
It was Angus’s turn to organize a hiking trip for his friends in 2016, and following a tradition of exploring less popular destinations, he opted for a trip to Romania to hike up the highest peak in Fagaras mountains. Up till now they went in self-guided tours, but going for a guided tour in the Romanian Alps proved to be a really great idea. The weather turned quite bad up at more than 2000m, with low temperatures, first snow of the year and disturbing winds. The initial plan, going from Sambata all the way to Balea Lac, had to be abando… (>>>)
Stuart and Liam flew to Romania on an extended weekend to hike the Carpathians, set foot on the highest peak and experience some of authentic rural lifestyle. Sounds like a simple plan, and in many way it was, but most of the times the great satisfactions come out of really simple things.
Iulian’s grandma house in Ucea de Sus village proved to be the ideal starting point to the mountain adventure. Proper traditional food (“carne și cârnați la borcan”, good luck finding that in any traditional Romanian restaurant) a… (>>>)
Hi Julian, Since my friends are still on the road, I want to say many thanks for hiking tour to Moldoveanu peak in the name of whole Lithuanian group.

When the going gets tough, the tough get going
Almost 30 years after a first attempt at doing the Fagaras mountains main ridge, Thomas and his wife came to Romania this July to finish the business. That first try ended shortly after starting, because of an unexpected snow. This time the weather was much better, with lots of sun and mild temperatures. The trek proved to be demanding non-the-less, with lots of technical ascents and descents, with long hours of marching along trails sometimes pretty exposed ridges.
Thomas and his wife wer… (>>>)
Eileen came from Switzerland to Romania tracking back family roots and trails. Her grandfather started his love affair with the mountains in Fagaras, in Sambata and Vistisoarea area, following his passion later in life up in the Swiss mountains. Eileen wanted to see with her own eyes where it all began, so, together with her friend Yves, they asked us to plan a ten days trekking tour in Romania.
We started near Brasov, in Piatra Mare, and made our way towards Fagaras via Bucegi and Piatra Craiului. All along the way we visited sheep farms… (>>>)
Intotdeauna mi-am dorit sa pot sa scriu un raport de tura in limba Romana! Si din pacate pana acum nu am avut aceasta sansa. De ce? Pentru ca in cei 14 ani de cand merg pe munte ca si ghid, am organizat ture doar pentru straini care vin sa vada Romania dincolo de tabloide, de stiri de televiziune, vin sa vada o Romanie reala, si de ce nu, o Romanie frumoasa. Acum a fost un grup mixt, Suedezo – Roman, 5 la 2 ca sa zic asa, adica 5 Suedezi pusi pe shotii tot timpul, nu ca Romancele ar fi fost mai calme! No way! Dor ca si-au dat drumu’ mai incet, … (>>>)
