Just a beautiful day
It was so nice and a beautiful day. I really enjoyed it. And Dan was a helpful guide all the way.

That ingenious hike i will never forget. Mountains like in Lord of the Rings whitewashed in the hot red autumsunlight. Thank you Dan, for having uns shown this peace of paradise. Joa.
The hiking tour with Dan is an incredible journey to a world that must be seen to believe. Dan will tailor the tour to your desires whether you are after a hiking challenge or a more relaxing and scenic adventure. This is a unique opportunity to see the mountains in Romania without the big tourist crowds!
I enjoyed a fantastic and memorable one day hike with Dan in the Ciucas mountains! Dan was very attentive to meeting my hiking ability and requests for a challenging and scenic hike with lots of photo opportunities. I was not disappointed! The mountains are a beautiful reflection of what Romania has to offer! On the way down the mountain, unfortunately an old hiking knee injury of mine reappeared which slowed down the descent, but Dan was very patient and helpful! I appreciated this very much! Overall, a great day out! I look forward to my next visit to the Mountains soon!
