Trail running in Romania, enjoy mountains!

How can i put it on paper when I don’t even find the words for it? It was a tour that I was little worrying about at the beginning but when it started it was everything else but worries. Beautiful trails, people with a lot of joy in hearts and open for everything were a perfect match to have a great experience. This way we succeed really to make the best of our 4 days Trail Running tour. Looking back at these days I still feel the joy and happiness to have run in such a special company, on our home trails.

Thinking more about it, it came. Flow … (>>>)

Hiking and photo tour in Fagaras Mountains

There is a good number of people that come to Romania not because they were lured in by the famous landscape beauty, the gorgeous mountains or the any other world renown tourist attractions. The reasoning is pretty mundane: a business trip, a short or long term contract with a locally based company, a friend’s wedding, etc. Most often than not, people come back to Romania to trace back family roots, to discover the world were their parents or ancestors came into being and developed as individuals, before going to discover and con… (>>>)

American guests, hiking in Romania

Our 6 day, 5 night trekking adventure in Romania was fantastic. Iulian picked a good route for us to see different parts of the Carpathian mountains. Every day we enjoyed beautiful scenery and great vistas. One of the highlights of the experience was our guide, Iulian. He is very knowledgeable and was clearly excited to share both the beautiful Romanian landscape and the wonderful culture with our family. He accommodated our every need and his easy going nature made him an absolute pleasure to spend time with. We have been on many guide… (>>>)

American family hiking in Romania, enjoying nature

They came from California to visit her family in Berlin. And because 10 years ago, if I remember well, I was hiking with some of their friends, Tanja and her family decide to spent a week hiking in Romania. Even if our plans were changed by the weather conditions, we were lucky enough where we hiked in Bucegi mountains and in Fagaras mountains. The kids were fantastic! They enjoy every single moments of their holiday, even playing on rain! And sure, we stayed one night in Ucea de Sus village, my grandmother village, on the 1892 renovated hou… (>>>)

Mon père adorait les Carpartes

Curieuse d’apprendre plus sur la région où mon père a grandi, je voyageais une deuxième fois en Transylvanie, cette fois ci avec mon conjoint qui adore les montagnes et les aventures. J’ai contacté Iulian pour demander de l’aide car pour moi c’était la première fois que je faisais une randonnée dans la montagne. Il a proposé un tour de 3 jours. Nous avons passé 10 jours en Transylvanie avec la famille et des amis de Boița. Puis le jour du depart à la montagne est arrivé. Horia est venu nous chercher à Boița pour aller à Avrig où nous avons lais… (>>>)

My dad loved the Carpathian mountains – Belgium hikers in Romania

Wanting to learn more about the region my father grew up, I travelled once more to Transylvania, this time with my partner who loves mountains and adventures. Since it was the first time for me to do a hike, I contacted Iulian and asked for help. We agreed on a 3-day trip in the Făgăraș Mountains.

We spend 10 days in Transylvania by ourself with family and friends from Boița. Then the big day of departure in the mountains was there…

Horia picked us up in Boița and we went to Avrig where we left the car and started to climb up to Cabana Bârcaciu. G… (>>>)

British hikers on Moldoveanu Peak, Romania 2016

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… (>>>)

Hiking Fagaras mountains in Romania

During my recent visit to the Fagaras mountains I could see oceans of Alpenrosen, hear stories about giant bears, see flying alpine chickens and majestic chamois, walk the steepest chicken breast, experience the most yellow dormitory room, drink the the blackest coffee, almost touch kingseize and smallseize water-buffalos and observe caring storks high above the village, taste yellow caviar and watch active grandmas in story tale like gardens – making the strongest schnaps and – without a doubt – now I am in love with Romania – the … (>>>)

Recharging batteries on a hiking weekend in Bucegi and Bran Country

Every now and then (and there is quite a big gap between now and then) we get the chance to hike with fellow Romanians. It gets a little bit weird in the beginning, as we are much more used to speak English than Romanian, but we adapt easy to any situation :).

Hikers tend to be friendly, open minded people, with plenty of stories to share. This time was no different, and the ever changing scenery of the Bran Country and the Bucegi Natural Park can only  add to the atmosphere. Starting in a green and sunny Moeciu de Sus, going up to the last patches o… (>>>)

Walking in Transylvania, like a fairy tale story

Walking in Bran county is always a pleasure and is like a fairy tale walking tour 🙂 Smooth landscapes, charming villages, outstanding landscapes and why not, always good weather.

This time I was happy to walk with a group of 5 students from Singapore and Japan, and as far I see, they enjoy the tour. And not the last the meals during our trip 🙂

We were happy to walk from Piatra Craiului National Park thrum all the mountain villages, until we arrive at the bottom of Bucegi mountains.

Sunny days, spring flowers, and from time to time caws an dogs … (>>>)
