Type of Trip
The Fagaras Mountains (2,544m) are the highest peaks of the Southern Carpathians (also known as the Transylvanian Alps), in Romania. These are the second highest set of mountains in the Carpathian Range (2,655m), which stretches over 1,500 kilometers across Central and Eastern Europe, making it the second largest range in the continent, after the Scandinavian Mountains.
The Fagaras Mountains are a popular trekking and skiing destination. Our one-week splitboarding trip will take you to the best spots where to ride powder snow! We will traverse along wild slopes, snow-covered forests, vast valleys, and glacial lakes, with stunning views over the Transylvanian Alps. Along the way, we might see picturesque ancient castles, fortresses and churches situated on hilltops and cliffs.
I will take a minimum of 4 people on this trip and a maximum of 10. However, if you are less than 4 travelers, we can discuss alternatives and prepare a program tailored just for you! Participants are required to have some basic splitboarding skills and previous experience, as well as a good fitness level.
Discover the magnificent Fagaras Mountains in this unique splitboarding experience. Book you trip now!
In case you are interested, I also offer a ski touring version of this program. If you are considering similar activities in other European countries, check out the splitboarding tours I lead in Carros de Foc (Spain) and Kola Peninsula (Russia).

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?
If you decide to cancel, you’ll get a 100% refund (minus fees) if the cancellation is notified up to 60 days before the start of the tour, a 75% refund (minus fees) if you cancel between 59 and 30 days before the start of the tour, and a 50% refund if you cancel between 29 and 21 days before the start of the tour. If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund. Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.
What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.
Please contact me to request an activity cancellation insurance and further insurance information.
