THIS IS A MUST Winter Alpine Course

Hiking on the mountains it might seem a simple walk in the park but actually is not that simple. Mountain is a dangerous place especially in the winter bust as well in the summer time. In order to make sure that you know how to travel in the forest, or on mountain trails, or on a rocky area, or in the deep valleys, or how to avoid exposes area to avalanches, or in forests with wild animals you should learn it first from those that can teach you to do it safely.

    Recomand cu toata increderea Extreme Expeditions. Sunt niste oameni foarte dedicati si cu mult bun simt. Imi place ca inainte de a ii face meseria sunt oameni, iar acest lucru este foarte important pentru clienti. Am participat la cursul de alpinism hibernal din Muntii Rodnei din 2019 iar totul a fost perfect!

    I went with Extreme Expeditions to the Retazat mountains in Romania. It was deep snow and pretty tough going. Radu was outstanding. Constant communication, updates and advice. He also provided confidence on our route planning and hiking. It was a thoroughly enjoyable weekend which I recommend to others.
