About Romania

The mystical land in southeastern Europe is much more than the homeland of the most famous vampire in the world, Count Vlad Tepeš, after whom the story of Dracula was created. In the last decade, Romania has been experiencing a real tourist “boom”. Black Sea resorts that can also be compared to Bulgarian and Greek, rich cultural and historical heritage, and preserved medieval towns with castles and churches reveal why traveling around Romania is attractive, interesting, and charming. Above all, Romania is a paradise for all lovers of authentic nature, as it enchants with romantic Transylvania, the natural treasures of Europe’s second-largest river, the Danube, and the wild Carpathians.

FAQ

Where and when do I meet your team?

Our team will wait for you at the airport. If you are arriving by land meeting point is also at the airport or elsewhere if you let us know where (this service is not included in a price). After the meeting, you will be transferred to your accommodation. Please note, that in some areas, due to a long drive to our base, we provide only one transportation per group, usually in the morning (Iceland, Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, Altai…). So take into consideration that one extra day and accommodation may be necessary.

Where do I meet my guide?

The guide will arrange a specific meeting location and time with you specifically. Most commonly, this location is at your accommodation or our base.

How much hiking up is involved?

There will be approximately 4-6 hours of hiking broken up in the day and approximately 800~1100 vertical meters of skiing.

Do I need climbing skins?

Yes, all of our ski touring tours require uphill travel, and skins are by far the most efficient way. Skins attach to the base of skis or split-snowboards, peel off at the top of the run, and get stowed in a pocket for the downhill fun.

Can I rent equipment?

You can rent equipment, but you need to inform us at least 21 days before the start of your program. Our trips are in remote areas where there are no shops or rental services, so we need to provide them from a distance. Please note that rental on the spot is usually not available.
