It was a perfect day for a hike in the Ciucas Mountains - brilliant blue sky and fantastic fall colors! Dan was an excellent guide, always aware of providing a safe experience and an excellent hiking companion. The mountains would be incredible in almost any weather, with stunning stone spires rising up out of the landscape and a different view around almost every corner, including some formations with imaginary animals, if one looked closely. Off in the distance you could see all the way to the city of Brasov veiled in layers of colored haze. This day hike was the perfect culmination to our 12 day trip from Budapest to Bucharest and the beautiful photos from this hike will have a prominent place in the online photo book I will be working on this winter. I highly recommend Dan to anyone looking for a really great experience!

We booked a private Tour with Stefan - it was just excellent. The mountains were picturesque. Stefan told us everything we needed to know about the mountains and more. He always paid attention to our needs and looked out for us. He also knows the whole area very well and could give us much information about the things to do around Braşov and Constanţa.
All in all it was a perfect day. I can recommend the tour to everyone who is looking for a beautiful medium hike.

PS.: We met with the guide at the starting point of the trip, so there was no pickup from Bucharest as we were in Braşov at the time.

I always wanted to visit Ciucas Mountains but I wanted to do it properly with a guide and not miss anything worth seeing. Hands down, this was the best guide ever, very knowledgable and passionate about his job. I have seen the best sights and landscapes and the trip was just fantastic!

Very professional and knowledgeable tour guide. He knows all the good hikes and places in Romania. Highly recommended for a perfect experience! Want to really make it worth it? Look no further!

The pressure was on for Dan and Outdoor Activities In Romania. The thing I was looking forward to the most on my trip to Romania was to hike in the beautiful mountains. First, I should say the Romanian countryside is really beautiful.
I could not have asked for a better place to hike. The location was exactly like I had imagined it would be. I was lucky to have a sunny day with a light cool breeze. Planning the day with Dan was very easy because he was always very quick to respond to my messages and was really helpful and willing to customize my day the way I wanted it.
This hike was not a walk in the park, but Dan was very patient with me, never pushing me and allowing me to enjoy it. We talked and talked. You can ask Dan anything about Romania because he has been to every corner of the country. He also has a vast network of connections in the country to provide truly unique experiences. He set me up
with an amazing lunch the next day in Viscri. Homemade and farm fresh. I'm sure there are other tour companies that can organize a nice day for you but I have already tested this company out for you, and can verify that they are exactly what you will need and want in a tour company. I plan to go back to Romania and will not hesitate to have Outdoor Activities In Romania organize some more adventures for me. And even if I don't get Dan as my guide the next time, I'm confident I will be in good hands because Dan explained to me that he only hires knowledgeable and enthusiastic people who are passionate about what they do and enjoy what they do. So I imagine they will be just like him! Thank you Dan. It has been almost 3 weeks since that day in the mountains and I still think about it every day.

Hey there, we had an awesome hike tour in Ciucas Mountains, with Outdoor Activities. Our guide was Mihaela, she explained us very well how to prepare for the tour, what clothes to take. Weather was great, hike took for about 4 hours to the top, and the way back to the car 2 more hours. What we also enjoyed was the dinner we had in Cheia. Truly tasteful. Really recommending this one day hike tour with Outdoor Activities in Romania and their guided tours.

It was a wonderful day in the Ciucas Mountains! The chosen route, the crocuses carpet discovered in each meadow, the dream sightseeing, the guide, all made the experience to be very fabulous, amazing! Definitely, my goal for this year is to visit the whole country with Outdoor Activities!

I booked a day trip with Outdoor Activities, hiking in Ciucas Mountains. It was challenging, with plenty of snow but totally worth it eventually. The views from the top were the best! Can't wait to come back for another tour!

Outdoor activities in Romania is Dans (36) company and he loves what he does. He has a very high empathy potential and observes his hikers very well to find the perfect pace for everyone. Also the tracks he chooses (he knows the mountain like his back pocket) depend on what he thinks his clients are able to manage. Dan speaks English fluently and so it's very easy to get into a pleasant conversation. The quite long time in the car (approximately 3 hours)flies because you feel like you're on tour with a friend of yours. We are a couple, 28 and 30 years old and we are quite fit (gym, running; my BMI is 19,5) but don't really hike usually. The hike was exactly what we were looking for: getting to know the countryside of Romania, enjoying nature, a little physical effort as well, stunning view, no stress, private (we were the only guests of Dan) and NO typical tourist attraction (we passed by four other hikers all in all... that was very okay for us) Dan contacts you quite a long time before the trip, to find out what his hikers expect. He even brought us vegan (I love him for that) crackers, that was kind of Lembas bread for us. Everything was the way we hoped for, so no more to say than: If you want to feel safe and comfortable in Romanias mountains book Dan.
