As usual, weather is weather, and in September sometime plans has to be changed because of HER. But based on our 20 years’ experience in organising hiking tours in Romanian mountains, weather is not an issue.
The plan was to hike in Fagaras mountains, climbing Moldoveanu peak in two days hike, but just with few days before our trip, the first serious snow of this season came and we had to change our plans, because hiking has to be fun, not only climbing peaks! So, we moved to Bucegi mountains, where we had also snow, but a much friendly one. In two days we traverse the entire Bucegi mountains, climbing Omu peak on Cerbului valley, enjoying a beautiful evening with Mircea and Doina Opris at their hut.
Next morning sun was up, and our traverse from Ialomita valley to Moeciu de Sus mountain village was the weather we were looking for, blue sky, fantastic landscapes and great group of hikers!
Enjoy the photos,
Iulian, September 2018
We were visiting Romania with work, and bringing customers with us we wanted to do something on two days we had spare with our group of six. I rarely use a guide, but due to the timescale and wanting everything to go smoothly I found Iulian to assist. From the outset he was a true professional, and through emails back and forth we had a plan, and he’d arranged transfers from our hotel to the start of the walk. The night prior to our trip Iulian contacted me to say that 30cm of snow had fallen on the area of our planned route, and he suggested an alternative route. Had we not had Iulian we would not have been able to cancel the overnight accommodation and rebook at short notice in another area of the Carpathians. We had a great two days on a circuit with varied scenery whilst Iulian informed us on everything from geology to this history of the area. I would definitely recommend that you use their services to get the best from your trip to Romania.
