Discover some of the winter hiking trails in the Romanian Carpathian mountains together with specialized mountain guides. Having peaks with altitudes over 2500 m, our mountains will give you complete satisfaction.
From the steepest valleys, to the deepest forests, our Carpathians will offer a complete range of landscapes even to the most skeptical rider. If the weather conditions won’t allow it, then in the backup stage we have really good spots up in the mountains which will allow access to safe areas with good snow.

Welcome to Romania!
On day 0 we get to know each other. Our team will wait for
you at the airport and bring you to Brasov. Here, depending on what you want to do, you can choose to visit the city center or chill out in your room. Nevertheless we need to decide together the itineraries for the next days, so after lunch, time for a briefing!
Piatra Mare Mountains
After we check the weather forecast , we start our trip towards Prahova Valley, to get to Piatra Mare plateau, situated at an altitude of 1800m. We will reach the plateau by our human powers. We put our splitboards on and start the walk to Piatra Mare chalet, which will be our first stop. We’ll have lunch and then after more 45 minutes of ascent, we’ll reach the starting point for our first ride. Depending of the general condition of the group we can do 2 or more descents.
Ciucaș is the mountain where you will always find good snow and safe places with no risk of avalanche. The climbs are smooth and in a good day you can make up to 4-5 descents. The highest peak is at an elevation of 1.954m and from the main ridge you can choose between the south side, or the north sided faces.
Balea Freeride Arena I
Făgăraș Mountains – We change the mountain but keep the snow. During 70% of the time in the cold season, Bâlea snow stays fresh so we take no chances here. We get from Bâlea Waterfall to Bâlea Lake by cablecar. From here the options are endless, we suggest multiple ascents up to 2.400m altitude and descents to Bâlea Valley or Doamnei Valley. We’ll have lunch at Paltin Cabin followed by the last downhill ride to Bâlea Waterfall.
Balea Freeride Arena II
If the snow is in good condition, Bâlea is a good option also for the following day. As we said, the riding options are countless, so the 2nd day, already warmed up after the 1st, we suggest a ride in which endurance and adrenalin go hand in hand. Going up, either on the splitboard either in the snowshoes, the ascent to the ridge will make you gladly looking forward to the downhill. You’ll enjoy a stunning panorama of the Făgăraș Mountains including Bucegi and Piatra Craiului Mountains. The ridge will make you feel like you’re on top of the world and we assure you that the descent is long and exciting.
Balea Freeride Arena III
We’ll take the south face, pray for good conditions and hope that the sun will accompany us. The view is awesome, Făgăraș mountains full of snow are spectacular. Similar to the last days, depending on how you feel, we can go for one or more rides. Taking into account that the area is wilder, we should pack more supplies with us: tea, biscuits and chocolate are recommended.
Depending on your flight departure and on the snow conditions we will ride down Doamnei Valley or Bâlea Valley. Then airport transfer and … and thanks for coming and hope to see you again.
