Cu Helmut si Andi, cei doi frati din zona Aradului, care au emigrat acum multi ani in Germania, si gasca lor de prieteni, am fost pe muntii din Romania de 2 ori, in Piatra Craiului si Bucegi, precum si in muntii Macin si Delta Dunarii. Iar acum am ales impreuna muntii Fagaras.
Tura noastra a inceput de la cabana Barcaciu, unde cabanierii ne-au intampinat bucurosi de oaspeti. Am petrecut urmatoarele 2 nopti la nou renovate cabana Negoiu (jos palaria pentru ce ati facut acolo Marian si Roxana), urcand in creasta Fagarasului, si bucurandu-… (>>>)
We went on a 3 day hike with Iulian to Moldoveanu Peak in September 2021 and we had the best time! Lots of fun conversation and laughs. Iulian is very knowledgeable and has lots of interesting stories. We also felt incredibly safe with Iulian. He is very experienced and we had every confidence that he would get us to the top of Moldoveanu Peak! He was very organised and made the 3 day hiking experience incredibly easy for us….well as easy as climbing a 2544m mountain can be! It rained very heavily on the first day and Iulian was amazing at ensur… (>>>)
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… (>>>)
We have planned with our Italian friends a week-long traverse of the Southern Carpathians in July 2018, starting in Sinaia, across Bucegi, than along the main section of the Fagaras ridge, from Sambata to Negoiu.
After a good start in Bucegi mountains, the weather turned for the bad when we moved to Fagaras mountains. Instead of the main ridge traverse, we opted for some easier treks in the lower altitudes, at Negoiu and Barcaciu, but also an attempt towards Moldoveanu Peak via Turnuri and Podragu. We may not have the joy of breathing t… (>>>)
Thanks Iulian for this great trip!
We had two fantastic days in the Fagaras mountains, and your expertise, knowledge and thoughtfulness added a lot to our fabulous experience.
You set us up for a great challenge, that tested our stamina, but what a great tour we had with you and Nic 🙂
I highly recommend you for others seeking adventures in the Romanian mountains.

Our hike was short, but challenging. Meaning that in one day we have to climb Moldoveanu peak, the highest one in Romanian mountains and to arrive to Balea Lake on Transfagarasean highway. Plan was simple, on first day we climb Moldoveanu peak and sleep at Podragu hut, next day we hike from Podragu to Balea Lake.
And this we did, on a loooong first day hiking, 9 1/2 hours, climbing 1926 meters during 22 km. Starting early morning from Ucea de Sus village, is a plus, because the first part of the day is on low morning temperatures. By climbing … (>>>)
Wir haben in diesem Sommer Rumänien als ein großartiges Urlaubsland für uns entdeckt und die Wanderung auf den Moldoveanu mit Iulian war für uns ein unvergessliches Highlight.
Schon bei der Kontaktaufnahme über die Homepage und bei der Abstimmung der Reise (Termin, Tour, Gepäck, Anreise, Bezahlung usw.) war der Kontakt super professionell, so dass wir von Anfang an wussten, dass wir in besten Händen sind.
Nachdem wir in Rumänien angekommen waren, haben wir erst einen Tag in Bukarest verbracht. Am darauffolgenden Tag haben wir d… (>>>)
It was Angus’s turn to organize a hiking trip for his friends in 2016, and following a tradition of exploring less popular destinations, he opted for a trip to Romania to hike up the highest peak in Fagaras mountains. Up till now they went in self-guided tours, but going for a guided tour in the Romanian Alps proved to be a really great idea. The weather turned quite bad up at more than 2000m, with low temperatures, first snow of the year and disturbing winds.
The initial plan, going from Sambata all the way to Balea Lac, had to be abando… (>>>)
There is a good number of people that come to Romania not because they were lured in by the famous landscape beauty, the gorgeous mountains or the any other world renown tourist attractions. The reasoning is pretty mundane: a business trip, a short or long term contract with a locally based company, a friend’s wedding, etc. Most often than not, people come back to Romania to trace back family roots, to discover the world were their parents or ancestors came into being and developed as individuals, before going to discover and con… (>>>)
Our 6 day, 5 night trekking adventure in Romania was fantastic. Iulian picked a good route for us to see different parts of the Carpathian mountains. Every day we enjoyed beautiful scenery and great vistas. One of the highlights of the experience was our guide, Iulian. He is very knowledgeable and was clearly excited to share both the beautiful Romanian landscape and the wonderful culture with our family. He accommodated our every need and his easy going nature made him an absolute pleasure to spend time with. We have been on many guide… (>>>)
