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


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.

En flott tur i fin natur. Vi fikk vite mye om isbreens tilstand og vi fikk prøvd både isklatring og via Ferrata. Guiden snakket flytende engels så det var lett å kommunisere. En behagelig og artig tur med litt utfordringer.

My partner and I felt so safe with Mihnea. Mihnea was very professional and listened to how we were feeling during the entire time he was with us. He is very knowledgable about Mounteering. We decided not to attempt the summit due to bad weather a few days before and Mihnea tailored another plan for us which we had a great time doing. Mounteneering was very physically and mentally challenging and I am glad we got to spend time with Mihnea to learn more about techniques so maybe we can practice more and then one day attempt the summit again with Mihnea. This is a great trip!

I spent 3 very exciting days at Balea Lake having very good snow and weather conditions. Accomodation at Paltinu Hotel was good and evenings passed quickly meeting all different type of mountain people :-). Skitours started from Paltinu Hotel (2034m) up to different mountain saddles (ca. 2300m) on skis. Going further to summits was possible but quite challenging as we had to climb in 1m of fresh snow carrying skis on the backpack. Nevertheless we had a lot of fun and Mihnea guided in all situations safely.
