What people are saying about Cosmin



Thanks Lucian for an amazing trip in the Făgăraș mountains, he was very skilled and flexible with regards to shifting conditions. Although we did not reach the peak due to bad weather, he made up a new route and I got the full 2 days regardless. Would strongly recommend to people with a little bit of hiking/climbing experience at least. Bring warm clothes, gloves and headwear!



I had an incredible hike with Lucian and can't recommend this company enough! Brilliant communication and very accomodating. Lucian was an incredible mountain guide who was super flexible, kind, funny and it was like hiking with a friend. He knows so much about the mountains and the trails. It really was one of the best hikes I've done! Thanks again



Great trip !!



Mark Elod was our guide. He is very good, very knowledgeable and understanding. We thoroughly enjoyed the hike! Thanks! Ravi and Asha
