  • Get away from the routine for a weekend full of nature.
  • Enjoy an easy mountain bike ride.
  • Discover the Apuseni Mountains with your friends.


Calling all mountain bikers for a beautiful ride along the impressive Apuseni Mountains in Romania. Come for a day or two and discover this incredible place away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

The Vladeasa Massif, in the Apuseni Mountains, is the perfect place for mountain biking. It is not very high, its peaks are smooth and the routes are far away from crowds. I’ve created a special route that you’ll absolutely love.  You can come for the whole weekend or just for a day to get in touch with nature and forget all your everyday concerns.

However long you decide to stay in the mountains, I have easy and medium difficulty routes already mapped out. They are under 40 kilometers in distance with an altitude gain of approximately 1,500 meters.

You will also need to make sure you bring the specific equipment for mountain biking, such as bike, helmet and gloves, a rain jacket, sunglasses, a first-aid kit, and a change of clothes for after the activity.

So are you ready for an exhilarating mountain bike tour in the Apuseni Mountains? Then book your place now and let me be your guide!

About the guide

I’m an IFMGA mountain guide, a geographer and a passionate alpinist and climber.

I started going in the mountains as a child, at first very close to my home, in the Romanian Carpathians. In these mountains I discovered the passion for outdoor activities and climbing. It was not long until I started discovering other mountains and their challenges and I began building a "mountain climbing lifestyle".

I went in different expeditions around the world and I am always looking for interesting challenges in far away mountain ranges. As often as possible I spend my time in the Alps, training, climbing and enjoying life.

I became a national mountain guide in Romania in 2011. Since then, I love sharing my passion for the mountains and I enjoy taking clients to incredible places. I'm also a volunteer in educational activities to promote the values of authentic alpinism.

I believe in self development and always getting better at what I do, so in 2015 I joined the IFMGA mountain guide training program at EEMGA (East European Mountain Guides Association) and became a fully certified IFMGA mountain guide in 2018.

It will be my pleasure to guide you in any adventure in the mountains.

En flott tur i fin natur. Vi fikk vite mye om isbreens tilstand og vi fikk prøvd både isklatring og via Ferrata. Guiden snakket flytende engels så det var lett å kommunisere. En behagelig og artig tur med litt utfordringer.

My partner and I felt so safe with Mihnea. Mihnea was very professional and listened to how we were feeling during the entire time he was with us. He is very knowledgable about Mounteering. We decided not to attempt the summit due to bad weather a few days before and Mihnea tailored another plan for us which we had a great time doing. Mounteneering was very physically and mentally challenging and I am glad we got to spend time with Mihnea to learn more about techniques so maybe we can practice more and then one day attempt the summit again with Mihnea. This is a great trip!

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.

Mont Blanc is a beautiful climb, due to a tight schedule a 2 day was the only option for me and while we summited the mountain it felt like we lucked out with a clear weather window. My guide, Mihnea was great! He looked after all the details and offered guidance with my basic mountaineering skills. I would definitely go climbing with him again and would recommend him to anyone!

I might recommend to extend the trip with a couple of more days to make sure the weather dont stop you from reaching the summit, and also to enjoy being in the mountains.

Mihnea is an awesome guide. He is very knowledgeable, great company and everything you would want in a guide. If I come back or do another route I will try to get him again for sure. Thank you.

I think mont blanc and Chamonix is an amazing area to learn climbing skills and would recommend it. My guide was very skilled and took all safety precautions where necessary and had great days in the Alps. A couple of points I need to mention, It isn't made clear what accommodation is required and therefore was trying to book last minute which I found disrupting. The other thing is what your fee covers isn't made clear .I had to pay my guides lift fees which should be included in the fee, so be aware of what's covered before you register.
