(English) Hiking in Fagaras mountains climbing the highest peak in Romania

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.

Drumeții în România, excursii in munții Făgăraș

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 … (>>>)

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”… (>>>)

Tura de schi fond in muntii Bucegi si Postavarul, Poiana Brasov

At the end of March snow Gods were on our side, snow was enough and good quality for our cross country skiing tour in Bucegi and Postavaru mountains. The group of happy people from Genova enjoy the tour all the time, despite the weather conditions, low visibility, cold and windy, but hey, is March, is winter! We use the gps to find the Sphinx of Bucegi, but we find it, so foggy was up there! Enjoy the photos, Iulian, March 2018

Schi de tura in Fagaras si Bucegi, Romania

Seit Jahren stand es im Raum, dass wir mal in den Karpaten Skitouren gehen. 2017 war der Entschluss endlich gefasst und uns war klar: das machen wir mangels Orts- und Schneelagenkenntnis mit einem lokalen Guide. Nach kurzer Recherche und Kontaktaufnahme war die Wahl für Iulian leicht getroffen.

Ende Februar 2018 dann zu fünft per Flug von München nach Sibiu und von da an waren wir rundum betreut mit Fahrten, Unterkünften, Essen, Rundgängen zu Sehenswürdigkeiten, etc. Wir waren erst etwas skeptisch, denn wir hatten genau die Woche … (>>>)

Tura de iarna in magica Transilvanie

 

The trails we do hike tours, mountain biking adventures or trail running trips for three seasons along the year suffer a magical transformation during the winter months. No flocks of sheep or scattered cows grazing on the vast pastures, no dogs roaming around the deserted farms, nothing to disturb a frozen landscape. Everything comes to a stand still, as if mesmerized by the truly unique landscape.

If you are lucky, as Philippa and David were, to have your trip programmed just when some fresh snow is coming, it gets even better. … (>>>)

O tura de familie pe schiuri in Transilvania

This is happening when you son study medicine in Cluj Napoca University: you go to visit him, but you bring your ski touring gear with you, because are some nice mountains and powder to ski! And this Octavian and Bettina did, they came for a ski tour in Fagaras and Bucegi montains, one of the best and most accessible mountains for ski touring in Romania. Even if the weather at Balea lake was a truly winter weather, cold and wind storms, we enjoyed blue sky and powder snow during our trips in Bucegi mountains.

Enjoy the photos, Iulian, Februar… (>>>)

Cu schiurile de fond prin Tara Branului

The rolling hills of the Bran Country are a perfect place for hiking and mountain biking tours for most of the year, but they are also a brilliant destination for ski shoeing or, when snow allows it, for some incredible Back Country skiing days.

The mountain villages of Simon, Magura, Pestera and Sirnea, the lower altitude trails of the Piatra Craiului National Park and the Bucegi Natural Park were the scenery in which we thoroughly enjoyed five days of great outdoors.

Mystic forests, traditional wooden houses, friendly people, frie… (>>>)

O tura de 4 zile in Bucegi, schi de tura

Romanian mountains can be a destinations for short trips, hiking, walking, mountain biking, and why not, for ski touring. With a lot of experience and a good logistic, but off course, with good weather and snow conditions, we enjoyed 4 days of ski touring in Bucegi mountains, on last March. I meet Nicolas many years ago, he’s now based in France, but he still love Carpathian mountains, and with each occasion he share his love with his friends in France. Yes, I know, the French have the Alps, and many other impressive and well know mountain … (>>>)

Simplu: pulvar, splitboarding in Carpati

At the beginning of our tour, Bucegi mountains were just a big desert, without sand, sorry, snow! But at least was blue sky!

Second day, the same blue sky, but we manage to find some nice powder for some long lines! Well, then we had a situation, meaning a snow storm came over Bucegi, and true winter finally arrived in Carpathian mountains. After we traverse Dudele mountains, from Bucegi to upper parts of Moeciu de Sus mountain village, in true snow storm, we had a really big surprise: at least 50-70 cm of fresh powder snow, untouched, was th… (>>>)
