The Israeli mountain bikers seem generally reluctant to go for a full-mountain experience. Lacking experience in tackling long ascents and natural mountain trails, they more often than not opt for “safer” programs, with more cable car lifts, minibus transfers, fewer hours on the trails, etc.
Ronnen, Shane, Motti and Zeev where ready to get out of their comfort zone, opting for our true mountain Bucegi Circuit mtb tour. And they’ve got an experience they will brag about for years to come. A true mountain biking e… (>>>)
They are from Zaragoza, near the Pirineos and they were first time in Romania on winter of 2012, when the weather was not on our side.
Anyway, after 3 years they returned to see if we can discover now the Romanian mountains on better weather. And we did! The first plan was Bucegi and Fagaras mountains, but at the end was Bucegi mountains and a speed climbing tour on Poiana Brasov ski resort, on a heavy snowing day!
This time Bucegi mountains were great and we enjoyed everything, snow, sun, weather conditions and not the last the delicious foo… (>>>)
I am just back from a week of backcountry skiing tour That Iulian organized for our group in the Carpathian Mountains. He over delivered compared to our expectations. Iulian is not only a mountain lover able to transmit his passion. He is also trustworthy on all aspects of a trip, including the sometimes boring logistics. A very competent and trustworthy mountain guide but also a nice person with a great sense of humour. I strongly recommend Iulian to anyone wanting to discover the Romanian wilderness.

Fun in the mud on Bran Country trails
Unexpected familiar weather was waiting Martin, Pat and Ryan in Brasov when they came to Romania for a mountain bike tour in the Bran Country. Based in Amsterdam and London, the three friends were accustomed to cycle in wet conditions. Definitely more than I am, as the weather around here gives you most of the time the freedom to get picky – “it’s kind of cloudy, I think I will stay home today”.
We didn’t have that option with our tour, so we headed joyfully into what the s… (>>>)
Second day of powder skiing in Poiana Brasov ski resort. Winter came here fast and rich in snow, so it will be a great ski season. Last night we get -18 Celsius in Brasov, and Sunday the weather forecast is good, more snow 🙂
Well, still snowing here, and last weekend we did it again through the forests of Poiana Brasov ski resort. This time we used the ski lifts to enjoy all the powder from the forests. And we really enjoy it!
For some people skiing mean just a different way to get exposed to other, or things like this, but when you ski through the forest is just you and the big snow, sometime a tree, and maybe a someone who’s telling you what to do to shot some photos. It doesn’t matter what skis you use, how fat they are, is matter that you enjoy s… (>>>)
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… (>>>)
