Nick hiked in Romania back on 2008 and 2009. And since then we were from time to time in contact, even meeting for a drink in London some years ago. And on 2019 we start to plan another tour, this time for Nick, Louise and the girls!
But the Covid change our plans and we delayed the tour for more than a year! But the wait was well worth it, because the tour was a 4 season tour: we had summer, autumn and winter weather, and all during one week!
The tour start in Sinaia and Predeal, lovely forest walks, then we moved to Brasov city back garden in Bran coun… (>>>)
Any tour in Romania must include a walking tour, especially when you are coming from an island as Tenerife!
The walks were mainly on the beautiful Transylvanian forests, in Sinaia, Brasov and Zarnesti areas. We understand that most of the groups we’re guiding, are interested in nature that is different than in the home countries. And we were right in most of the situations!
The best views were during our walk in Postavaru range near Brasov city. Beautiful forest, colours, and the views over North of Bucegi mountains were breath … (>>>)
For all the mountain lovers from everywhere in the world: you can trust Iulian and his team-mates to make you live an unforgettable experience in Romanian Carpates. Me, and 9 of my French friends, asked to Iulian a 1 day hiking tour in snowshoes. His knowledge of the mountain and his good feeling with people made us having a perfect day. He knows how to adapt the route to the fitness level of the participants. He succeed to delight the most sporty people of the group, but in the same time the less trained from us. The contact and the reactivity … (>>>)
At the beginning of our tour, Bucegi mountains were just a big desert, without sand, sorry, snow! But at least was blue sky!
Second day, the same blue sky, but we manage to find some nice powder for some long lines!
Well, then we had a situation, meaning a snow storm came over Bucegi, and true winter finally arrived in Carpathian mountains.
After we traverse Dudele mountains, from Bucegi to upper parts of Moeciu de Sus mountain village, in true snow storm, we had a really big surprise: at least 50-70 cm of fresh powder snow, untouched, was th… (>>>)
In brief, it was like this: we all enjoyed a two week tour in Romania, yes in Romania, meaning that we explored half of the country, driving, walking and tasting delicious food!
In detail, we were in Bucharest, Sinaia, Bucegi mountains, Simon mountain village, Brasov city, Fagaras mountains, Balea Lake, Ucea de Sus village, Sibiu, Sighisoara, Gura Humorului and painted monasteries from that area and finally back to Bucharest.
It was a tour with all the necessary ingredients, sun, some rain, lovely landscapes, good jokes and most im… (>>>)
Habitués des raids à ski nordique ou alpin sous (presque) toutes les latitudes, nous souhaitions cette fois explorer les Carpates roumaines. Nous n’en connaissions guère plus que les créatures fantastiques qui peuplent notre imaginaire collectif quand on évoque la Transylvanie.
Il nous fallait donc trouver un guide local. Nous avons découvert ton site, cher Iulian, et avons été séduits par le professionnalisme qui s’en dégageait. Après quelques échanges efficaces qui ont confirmé notre première impression, nous avons sign… (>>>)
I did a lot of ski tours in Romanian Carpathians, but now is time to explore a new type of skiing, cross country skiing, with a very nice group of French skiers!
I was surprised how light and how strong were the skis, how fast you can climb, and how hard is to ski. But all in one was fun and a nice week.
Not too much snow indeed, but for our skis, the snow was just enough and we were able to traverse Bucegi mountains, from Sinaia to Moeciu de Sus mountain village.
The second part of our trip was planed in Piatra Craiului national park, but instead skiin… (>>>)
When a Australian couple want to go home, they still travel. This was doing Zac and his friends, at the end of three years stay in UK. They were going home travelling from country to country, and they stop for few days hiking in Bucegi mountains, South East of Transylvania.
Weather was fantastic, and our traverse of Bucegi was done smoothly and dry!
Enjoy the photos,
Iulian, Sept 2016
I would highly recommend this company. Iulian provided for us a personalized itinerary of hiking through the Transylvanian mountains and villages. The sc… (>>>)
Ciao Iulian, grazie per la bellissima settimana (10-16 luglio 2016) che con gli altri amici del Club Alpino Italiano abbiamo trascorso con te in Transilvania. Luoghi meravigliosi, ospitalità cordiale e, specialmente, la tua ottima capacità di condurre il gruppo e di provvedere ad ogni nostra necessità, con una disponibilità e un’attenzione davvero eccezionali. Spero si possa combinare per qualche altra avventura insieme, ancora sui Carpazi o magari sul delta del Danubio.
A presto dunque, buona montagna e buona vita!
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 … (>>>)
