Via ferrata in Eastern Carpathians

via ferrata. Hasmas

First time in Romania… first time on via ferrata… and more to come, from now on!

Few days ago we made a lovely trip in Eastern Carpathians (Hasmas Mts.) with a very enjoyable couple from Israel looking for outdoor adventure in Carpathians.

We done two beautiful via ferrata routes nearby Lacu Rosu area (Bicaz Gorges), both ranked around C-D with 150-200m in elevation.

As a result…

”Thanks a lot for the pictures! They are really beautiful and it’s a great memory of our 2 days trip with you. Thank you so much for that!!!! We really enjoyed it. We’ll contact you for our next trip in Romania :)”

Family walking in Brasov Mountains

Trekking. Bucegi

We are in full summer season and all mountain paths from Brasov mountains are full with mountain lovers.

These days we have been in Piatra Mare and Bucegi Mountain, with a lovely Spanish – Romanian family, willing to to do as much as possible.

The ”Șapte Scări” Canyon very close to Brasov is a popular objective, a place not to be missed. You just need a waterproof jacket for the canyon itself and do not go there in weekends!

Another day we went above 2.000m altitudine, on the high alpine plateau of Bucegi Mountains Natural Park. Here you can find many geological figures, including the most popular ”Babele” and ”Sfinx”, surrounded by legends and strange stories.

Regarding Bucegi plateau, must be said that despite the flat and easy terrain in full sunny days, the plateau is a huge trap for those who forget where they are: on a high and open plateau above 2.000m altitude!

MTB and kayaking in Lower Danube region

Biking. Macin

Last days we enjoyed a lovely mix tour in a mountain region less known for mass tourism: Lower Danube and Măcin Mountains.

South East corner of Romania, nearby Galati city – the biggest harbor in the Lower Danube, is the Gate of Danube Delta and the land of three rivers: Siret (647km), Prut (953km) and Danube (2.860km) – the second biggest river from Europe.

On its way to the Black Sea, just around 120km away (80 miles), Danube river has to pass one last obstacle, the final barrier on its way to freedom: Măcin Mountains.

For 4 days we had to paddle over 70km along Danube river and to bike around 50km (+1.500m) with some short technical sections.

We had a great and motivated group, including the youngest one: a 14 years old strong young lady!

Stay tuned, we will be back on the river and mountains to repeat the experience!
