Climbing highest peak in Romania, Moldoveanu, June 2016

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… (>>>)

Ski de randonnée dans les montagnes de Bucegi, Mars 2017

4 jours de ski de randonnée en mars 2017 avec Iulian Cozma ont été une expérience merveilleuse. Iulian est un vrai pro que ce soit pour la logistique (transports, hôtels, refuges en montagne) mais aussi dans son  métier de guide de montagne : Iulian connait ses montagnes et il connait la neige. C’est aussi un joyeux compagnon qui étonne par la connaissance de son pays et l’affection qu’il lui porte. A refaire absolument avec Iulian !

Snowshoeing in Bran Country, Transylvania

Five friends from London came to Romania this winter for a snowshoeing trip across the hills and glens of the Bran Country. Conditions varied from cold winter to warm spring, with fresh snow or pleasant sunshine, with a little bit of mud added to mix. Fortunately no rain, but – we will say it over and over again, as it is simply very trye – there is no such thing as bad weather in the mountains. Just bad clothing.

Everyone’s photo camera was put to good use and abuse, as you can see from the gallery below. Be it a smartphone, a … (>>>)

Walking holiday in Transylvania, the Italian story

From time to time, some Italian mountain clubs are comin to Romania for a trip. I think they want to compare the Carpathian mountains with the Dolomiti or The Alps, and for most of them, the surprise is a lovely one!

This summer, a group of walkers from CAI Mirano Venetia, came one week tour, in middle of July, one of the hottest months from summer of 2016. We enjoyed good weather in Bucegi, Piatra Craiului national park and the high hills of Rucar Bran pass, but also the delicious food from our hosts in the mountains.

We hiked the hills and mead… (>>>)

Luxembourger group enjoying Romanian mountains

We were a group of 6  friends from Luxembourg that originally were very reluctant to go hiking in Roumania.  But thanks to Julian, our guide, we finally had a wonderful time in the Carpathians Mountains.  Julian went out of his way to please us with our  different needs.  He was flexible enough with  any change of program and destination.  Thanks to him,  with  his  perfect knowledge of the country, we were able to fully admire the country-side, in all its beauty.  Not only were we pleasantly surprised  by the landscape, but  also the cl… (>>>)

Exploring Transylvanian mountains, Bucegi and Piatra Craiului

Was the first snow from this year, but we were not scared about it. We were hiking in Bucegi mountains and Piatra Craiului national park, on snow, sun and beautiful weather. They came from Luxembourg, being hiking on other different places before this trip. And, as almost always, Mike, Dan and their friends were surprised by our mountains, and not by our food. We were welcomed by Mircea and Doina Opris in Bucegi mountains, and by Alina from Simon mountains village. Our trips went smooth and calm, enjoying the views, the landscape and all … (>>>)

Walking in Transylvania, fairy tale county

Hiking with Avril and Nina, what a wonderful tour! I met Avril 8 years ago, on a strong winter, when we walked up to Curmatura hut in Piatra Craiului national park. This year, together with Nina, she came to see how our mountains look in the summer time! As you can clearly see in the photos, they look very well! We hiked in the Bucegi mountains, Bran county and it’s high hills. We also went to Magura, the fairy tale village from our winter trip that Avril remembered vividly; the snow had been so high that the bread was transported by a hors… (>>>)

Hiking trip in Bucegi and Piatra Craiului mountains

Had the most amazing 4 days of trekking with Horia. He was an incredible guide and an all-around great guy. Our route took us through some of the most beautiful scenery I have ever seen and I can’t wait to go back to Romania and do it again. I recommend Iulian’s business to everyone I know!
