Romania ski touring vacation

The sound of frozen snow under your skis and your harsh breath are the only things that take your attention away from the glorious sunny day. You stop for a while and hold your breath, the scenery is stunning and silence seems to be the queen of the day. In early mornings, if you're lucky enough, you can hear a capercaillie male calling for a female. Even in this frozen landscape, life follows its natural way. Enjoy a vacation of alpine touring ski on the wide plateaus and deep forests of Apuseni Mountains, where animal tracks might be the only signs of movement and life. In the evenings, warm your hands above the fire and your soul over a glass of ‘crampa’ (boiled plum brandy), along with a ...Read more >

Romania small group vacation

One of the last authentic rural corners of Europe, the Western Carpathians (a.k.a. Apuseni Mountains meaning “the mountains at the sunset”) are a mountain area in the heart of Transylvania that seems miles away from the modern world. This doesn’t mean that nowadays challenges are not known, here. Despite their efforts (more or less successful) to catch-up with the present times, these mountain people are still strongly connected to the past. They still grow animals for food and use horse-drawn carriages to get around, many household items and tools are still handcrafted by skilled locals and working the land (in the lowlands) or the wood (in the highlands) is, as has always been, one of ...Read more >
