FAQs: Splitboarding in Romania

What should I know about Splitboarding Romania?

Since every trip to Romania begins with a flight into Bucharest, take a day or two to explore the capital. The Parliament building is a site certainly worth seeing. It is the second largest building on earth after the Pentagon, but cost so much to build they could not finish its interior! There are also great views from the top out over the city.

Most of the best splitboarding here is in relative close proximity. Based on your final destination there are a few train lines you might take, some of which let you off on the southern side and some of which let you off on the northern slopes of the mountain.

If you’re feeling adventurous enough book a one way ticket to the northern flank and splitboard from hut-to-hut back through to the southern side, before returning via train to Bucharest!

Why should I choose Romania for my Splitboarding adventure?

Stunning scenery

Romania, especially in the Carpathian mountains, is a spectacularly beautiful countries. Getting high up to the top of some of the taller peaks yields long views out towards the plains and great views of nearby mountains and valleys. The chance to spot ancient forts and castles also adds to the allure of heading out here for a splitboarding adventure. Picturesque towns also make for a scenic way to spend your downtime.

Dracula’s castle

Located in Bran, not far from Brasov, Dracula’s castle towers over the surrounding scenery. Since you’re likely to be in the area for any splitboarding adventure, take a moment to stop off here and explore for a little. Even though Vlad III, the historical person whom Dracula is based on, only lived in the castle for a few years, it is still well-worth a visit to learn some of the history of this stories region.

Escape the crowds

Unlike other popular European splitboarding destinations, Romania is still relatively unknown. Outside of the popular resorts, there are plenty of options spr solitary splitboarding and the freedom to enjoy the mountains in peace. Enjoy untouched snow throughout the season and make fantastic and uninterrupted runs from some of the peaks of the Transylvanian Alps back into the valleys below.

What people are saying about Splitboarding | Romania



I spent 3 very exciting days at Balea Lake having very good snow and weather conditions. Accomodation at Paltinu Hotel was good and evenings passed quickly meeting all different type of mountain people :-). Skitours started from Paltinu Hotel (2034m) up to different mountain saddles (ca. 2300m) on skis. Going further to summits was possible but quite challenging as we had to climb in 1m of fresh snow carrying skis on the backpack. Nevertheless we had a lot of fun and Mihnea guided in all situations safely.
