As most of the requests, the one I received from Bernhard was simple: I would like to hike in Romania with my daughter, kind of gift for her 18 years old birthday!
Is not first time when parents are coming with kids to hike in Romania, as presents for any type of anniversary, but each time is special! The interest of a young person just to go hiking on another country, with one of the parents, surprise me each time!
And this time I choose for them Bucegi and Fagaras mountains, the most representatives mountain ranges in Romanian Carpathian.
Bereits zum zweiten mal ging es in die Karparten zum Splitboarden.
Letztes Jahr waren wir schon begeistert von der Natur den Touren und dem tollen Essen.
Waren wir bis jetzt „nur“ im Bucegi Gebirge unterwegs, so sollten es diesmal auch ein paar Tage im Fagaras sein.
Die Bedingungen waren im Durchschnitt ziemlich gut und so hatten wir einige tolle Touren mit teilweise großartigen Abfahrten.
Iulian passte die Trips immer perfekt auf das Wetter und unseren Bedürfnissen an.
So ging es auch mal durch die tief verschneite Landschaft zu ei… (>>>)
They were splitboarding in Romania last January. And they return because they enjoyed! This year weather was much better than last year, but the poor winter conditions across all Europe, was presented here too.
Anyway, we take the best out of this snow conditions, and we enjoy nice weather tours in Bucegi mountains.
Then we moved in the forest around Brasov city, for a walk in spring weather conditions around the forest of Brasov.
As Sander and Ela said, we are so fortunate to live in Brasov, because you can start hiking or biking directl… (>>>)
During a winter tour, weather can bring you to heaven or not! Something like this was happening during our splitboard trip in Bucegi mountains, at the end of February, when weather was not as good as we expected!
We did our best, we climbed Tataru peak in one of the days when was worth to go out, but the most beautiful day was the last one, when we get 30 cm of fresh snow, and we enjoyed our way back to Sinaia!
Enjoy the photos,

Es ist die Jahreszeit wo sich viele auf den kommenden Frühling freuen und viele träumen weiter vom Schnee und den ersten Schispuren im strahlenden Pulver hinter sich zu lassen. Eine Jahreszeit wenn die Tage länger sind, die Sonne stärker aber immer wieder noch genug Kälte dabei ist um dem lang nachgejagden Schnee genießen zu können.
Nach einer Woche mit relativ wenig geignetem Wetter für Schitouren, bin ich letztes Wochenende mit Michael in Bucegi-Gebirge Schitouren gegangen und wir haben genau den Wechsel zwischen Februar und M… (>>>)
Hiking in Romania it is an unexpected experience for most of the visitors. And like this it was for the Belgium group of hikers from this August. As they are coming from a flat country like Belgium, cycling is the most common sport there. Also, they were good for hiking too, especially on long hikes witch involve a lot of climbing. Not the last, they were jealous when they saw Transfagarasean highway, a long asphalt road with climb 1500 meters, in central part of Fagaras mountains. Of course I told them that our Swedish friends climb it … (>>>)
How many times did we say to our old classmates or childhood friends, on those rare occasion we see them: “You know what? We should do that more often. We should do something together regularly, like we used to”. And we don’t, because we are all too damn busy.
Well, some people actually do that. We’ve guided Swedes who were making yearly trips around the world with friends they made more than 30 years earlier. We’ve shown the wanders of Bran Country to a group of Belgians in their early thirties who already … (>>>)
Sheila was having something for what some of us just dream, one month ski holiday in Europe. Well, I can start this story back in 2009, when we start to talk about Romanian mountains, traverse of Fagaras main ridge. in Summer of course. After two years, in September 2011 we did the Fagaras main traverse, in just 5 days, excellent tour. You may see the photos here. Well, after the hike we did in Fagaras, and why not, after the photos from my ski touring tours I send to Sheila, she decided that one week from the four weeks skiing holiday in Europe, … (>>>)
