It’s no secret that autumn is our favourite season because of the abundance of warm colours which create a beautiful spectacle in Romania’s dense forests. It’s the perfect season to go hiking in the mountains since the weather is stable and it’s not so hot as it is during the summer.
One of Romania’s hidden beauties lays just 30 km away from the beautiful city of Alba Iulia and reaching it is very easy. If you’re searching for a great place to cool down, this is the place to be!
For a long time we knew that the Apuseni Mountains are an inexhaustible resource for nature’s gems: never ending forests, caves, waterfalls, canyons, flooding meadows and special karst phenomena. This is why every time we explore them they never cease to amaze us 😊
Most of the tourists that visit the famous Transfăgărășan highway make a long pit stop at Bâlea Lake, the highest point on this highway. However, since it became such a big tourist attraction this place is crowded since it’s the host of the beautiful Bâlea lake and a panorama point for this truly beautiful highway. […]
I can’t really remember since when we planned on doing some hiking in the Cernei Mountains including visiting the remote villages with a few scattered houses on top of these picturesque mountains. So it was unexpected that we got here during winter…of all seasons. This is actually not bad at all since snow and cold […]

Actually until now we were pretty intimidated to do mountain trails during winter, filled with snow. The key, as we’ve learnt, is to do it progressively. Anyway, we were charmed and […]
Before we got to ski in Poiana Brașov we did a winter trail that we’ve dreamed of doing for about two years. I can’t exactly explain why we got so fascinated about Mălăiești Cottage in the Bucegi Mountains right after we heard about it.
In a cold and foggy December morning we found ourselves somewhere in the Apuseni Mountains close to Vârtop. Snow was abundant everywhere around us so we couldn’t miss out on a short hike starting from the main road leading to Vârtop.
It so happened that this year’s 1st of May was not booked for us. No trip, no nothing. That’s a bit unusual for us so we couldn’t stand it and tried to take a short and close trip 🙂 We chose to go to Moneasa, only 100 km away from Arad, a 2 hour car […]
Sorry for the long and complicated title but we got a lot to tell you about 😀 This trip is part of our tour through the Romanian mountains in the summer of 2015. One of the last trips we did in this tour was here at the base of Piatra Craiului mountain in the village […]
