Sezonul nostru de mtb din 2019 a fost o explozie de ture frumoase

Our 2019 mtb season was a blast

Many say that the 2019 season marked the end of an era for the various leisure industries, including adventure tourism. Well, if this will be the case, we can honestly say that we ended this said era with a bang. Our 2019 mountain biking season was a brilliant one. Check it out in this short video round-up:

We’ve had some exquisite custom short tours: Daniel, coming from Sweden, open the party in April. Monika and her friends drove to Romania for a longer trip, out of which four days were reserved for mountain biking. Sam flew all the w… (>>>)

Construirea conexiunii franceze: VTT en Roumanie

The Postavaru Mountains, the Piatra Craiului National Park and the Bucegi Natural Park were our playground for an intensive four-days mountain biking adventure at the beginning of the 2018 season.

Our guests were a group of French „VTT-istes” from Lyon area. They enjoyed the great landscapes, the nice weather, the delicious local food, and, of course, the great trails.

We are slowly but firmly building a proper French Connection, putting Romania on the top destinations list for „les VTTistes français”… (>>>)

Drumeti Englezi pe Varful Moldoveanu

Stuart and Liam flew to Romania on an extended weekend to hike the Carpathians, set foot on the highest peak and experience some of authentic rural lifestyle. Sounds like a simple plan, and in many way it was, but most of the times the great satisfactions come out of really simple things.

Iulian’s grandma house in Ucea de Sus village proved to be the ideal starting point to the mountain adventure. Proper traditional food („carne și cârnați la borcan”, good luck finding that in any traditional Romanian restaurant) a… (>>>)

Dutch hikers in Romania, hiking in Fagaras mountains

On the last years we deal quite a lot with hikers or bikers from Benelux countries. Well, I can say from the flat countries of Benelux. We were warned by Sigge to be carefully with them, because they bike and hike flat. Sometime they were very good prepared for climbs on bikes or on hikes, or sometime they were well surprised when they have to climb 1000 m in one climb. But this may happen when you travel for an active vacation. And when this active vacation happen to be in Carpathian mountains, be sure that we can find 500 or 1000 meters to climb f… (>>>)

Four seasons in six days of mtb in Romania

Ausrine, Karolis, Aurimas și Tadas drove 1500km from Lithuania to Romania with four bikes on the rooftop of their car, hoping for some unforgettable mountain biking experiences in the Romanian Carpathian Mountains, near Brașov City. And that’s precisely what they’ve got.

We rode our bikes together on nicely flowing trails and technical single tracks, on long climbs and endless descents, through forests an pastures, over roots and rocks. We enjoyed some really unusual weather, going through sun, rain, clouds, win… (>>>)

Walking holiday in Transylvania, Romania, Bran county

Noemi is originally from Fagaras town, my home town, but as few „Fagaraseni” she choose to live in US, getting married in US, and enjoy her life on the other part of the world.

During their short holiday in Romania, wedding, family relatives visits, they enjoyed a two days walk on the high hills of South East Transylvania, on the high hills of Bran country, Brasov’s city backyard.

And we were very lucky with weather! On the night before the trip were very heavy rains all over, but as you may see on the photos, during our wa… (>>>)

Hiking and walking in Romania, Fagaras and Bucegi mountains

It was a pretty wet summer, but if you know how to make from this an advantage it works very well for both parties! Like this was happen during my tour with Franck and Sibille, on early July this year. Frank was hiking in Fagaras mountain almost 30 years ago, and was coming back to hike them again.

After a pleasant evening in Ucea de Sus village, we start our journey to Fagaras mountains. Weather in this beautiful mountains was so so, and after three days there we decide to move in Brasov backyard, the high hills of Poarta and Moeciu de Sus villag… (>>>)

Single trail mtb in the mountains around Brasov City, Romania

We’ve been biking with our Swedish friends on the trails around Brasov for three years now and it just keeps getting better. The boys are a joy to watch, a continuous source of inspiration and awe. Their bmx origin is pretty obvious when you see them biking, and the combination of pure biking skills with a proper mountain-trail equipment and scenery simply works wonders.

For us it’s also a perfect opportunity not just to learn, but also to search for new trails. And we are happy to inform you that the possibilities are pretty … (>>>)

Mountain biking in Transylvania, Saxon villages

Mountain biking in Transylvania, Saxon villages

Our first mtb tour of the 2014 season was scheduled just before Easter. A very sunny and warm beginning of April, coming after an equally warm and dry winter, gave as hopes for a perfect biking weather during our five days ride with Eileen and Yves.

Two days before starting the tour, winter finally came to our mountains. Not the best circumstances for a bike tour. Keeping our rides at lower altitudes, we fought our way through some wet snow and plenty of rain before switching for a day of ski-touring up in Poiana Brașov resort.

Then we moved … (>>>)

Schi de tură, snowboard, freeride, rachete de zăpadă

Manualele de geografie scriu că aproape 30% din suprafața României e acoperită de munți. Promițător pentru schiul de pârtie, ai zice. În realitate, înălțimea relativ mică (în comparație Alpii, Pirineii, etc) și clima relativ uscată, temperat continentală, creează condiții mai puțin propice pentru construirea unor mari stațiuni de schi, care să rivalizeze cu imensele domenii schiabile din vestul și centrul Europei.

Dovadă stau atât aglomerația de pe puținii kilometri de pârtie amenajați în Carpații Românești, dar și coloan… (>>>)
