Description

Discover the wonders of mountaineering during the winter months in the fabulous Carpathians in Romania. Join me for two full days of excitement, and fun while you perfect your skills in a stunning location.

The Carpathians offer incredible peaks for a classic winter mountaineering experience. They are similar to the Alps, with stunning views and challenging routes. Some of the area we can explore include: Fagaras, Piatra Craiului National Park, Bucegi Mountains or Retezat National Park. They are all uniquely wonderful. Depending on your level and interest, I’ll adapt the climbing route, objectives, peak and mountaineering techniques.

Furthermore, keep in mind that for this trip you will need to bring waterproof jacket and pants, two pairs of gloves, warm clothes, a sleeping bag, winter boots, crampons, ice axe, helmet, harness, sunglasses, sunscreen, first-aid kit and a flashlight.

So, are you ready for a unique adventure in the Carpathians? If you like mountaineering, I can guarantee you’ll love this trip. I would love to be your guide!

About the guide

guide profile img

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.
