Join us on an awesome week of running through the mountains in Romania. We’ll spend our days exploring some fantastic trails and our nights relaxing in a mountain cottage. What’s more fun than that?

What to expect

Our guides are all certified and experienced. They’re also great runners who know the best spots in the mountain. On this trip, we’ll take you to the Piatra Craiului Mountains and the Bucegi Mountains.

Along the way, you’ll get to enjoy awesome sites like the Ialomita waterfall, the amazing Sphinx formation and more. We’ll also cross the Bucegi plateau.

We’ll keep the trip interesting by passing through some technical sections. You’ll also have plenty of time to have fun and enjoy the scenery.  We’ll also have time to relax in the evenings at the Moeciu de Sus cottage, where you’ll be able to unwind and take in the fresh mountain air.

We think this is pretty much the best way to stay active while also enjoying the spectacular scenery. Request to book today, pack your running shoes and we’ll be seeing you in the mountains!

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
