Exploring Fagaras mountains

It was a tour like the tours have to be! I’m not saying that I not enjoy all my tours, because I really enjoy all my tours, but this one was special because of the tranquility of the Astird, Susanne and Holger, and not the last, because like all this summer, the weather was the right one for a hike in Fagaras mountains!

Our tour start from Ucea de Sus village, at the bottom of Fagaras mountains, with a hike of 6 1/2 hours to Podragu hut, where we arrived just with seconds before a heavy rain start, but as I said, we were lucky with the weather.  … (>>>)

Drumetie montana pe dealurile satului Simon

Salut,Ziua de 10 Septembrie am petrecut-o intr-o excursie, insotind in zona Bran – Moeciu, un frumos grup de tineri din Bucuresti. Tura noastra a inceput in satul Simon cu multa voie buna. Vremea frumoasa si atmosfera tinereasca au impanzit dealurile care au rasunat de rasete si glume care au dat viata locurilor. Aparatele de fotografiat si-au facut cu prisosinta datoria, imortalizand atat diverse momente ale Echipei cat si frumusetea peisajelor si a participante(i)lor. Avand in stanga masivul Bucegi si in dreapta Piatr… (>>>)

Hiking vacation in Fagaras mountains and Ucea de Sus village

Omer, Ray, Or and Oran came to Romania form Israel to hike in the Fagaras Mountains. And some epic hiking they did: they were faced with harder physically and more challenging technically trails than they anticipated (or expected), but what they lacked in specific mountain skills (and gear) they more than compensated with determination, positive thinking and good humor. Always in the mood for singing, no matter how steep or rocky the mountain trails were, or how tired their legs were.We had our share of clouds but almost no rain (it on… (>>>)

Exploring Romanian mountains

I was asked many times by my guests if I’m not bored to do tours in the past 11 years over and over the same places, over and over same mountains, and clearly my answer is NO! First of all, I did tours with hundreds of different guests, from all over the world, and all of them have different stories to share, and all of them were surprised by my country, Romania. I can say that most of them came with not so many expectations about a hiking or a cultural tour in Romania, but at the end of the tour they really changed their opinion about my country… (>>>)

Bergwandern in den Siebenbürger Alpen

Last year, on July 2010, I hiked with Christian from Stuttgart on the Fagaras main ridge, from far East to Podragu hut, on Central part of Fagaras mountains. We did this hike camping on a tent on the main ridge of Fagaras for 3 days.
