Hiking in Retezat national park

We enjoyed our recent visit to the mountains of Romania immensely. Iulian was a great host and guide for our two-week visit, which included hiking in the Fagarash and Retezat Mountains and Bucegi Plateau. He was professional and well-organized throughout the trip, from the dining and sleeping arrangements at each of the chalets to the perfect timing of the comfortable bus meeting us at the trailheads. Each day of hiking led us to incredible views and Iulian’s companionship and knowledge of the region added a lot to our enjoyment. I’m still thrilled to tell my friends that I hiked to the top of the three highest peaks in Romania! Thanks for a great trip, Iulian!
