Highlights

 
     

    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).

    About the Guide

     
     

    Xavi (Terrassa, Catalonia, 1963). Actually I’m living in Prullans.
    During several years I have been practicing my two big passions, mountaineering and photography as hobbies. Actually I’m a High Mountain Guide and photographer in outdoor BTT races, mountaineering marathons or climbing competitions.
    In 1982 I did became a member of Servei General d'Informació de Muntanya, a specialized mountain library. And from 1998 I’m working as High Mountain Guide for NKBV (Alpine dutch team).
    After working 6 winters as a lifeguard patrol in a Catalan ski resort, I spent a few seasons of the southern summer working as a High Mountain Guide for Azimut 360 and Chilemontaña, two agencies located in Chile, leading clients through the Patagonia and into America's highest peak, the Aconcagua.
    Since 2005 I lead my own clients around the world as a freelancer Mountain Guide. From September 2007 I manage the Companhia de Guies de Montanha web, bound to Carros de Foc. I have take part in many expeditions to Andes in South America and Himalaya, Karakorum and Hindu Kush in Asia.
    I’ll like to show you “my” mountains, “my” Pyrenees and of course, other mountains around the world. I’ll like to guide you till de top of Aconcagua, Ararat, skiing down from Elbrus, or Kola’s peninsula in Russia.
    I propose here few activities, but not all what I can show you!
    Contact with me and go together to your dream!
