Feel the Carpathian emotion

Live the the Carpathians emotions through every mountain activity we organise










Our story is simple, it has grown over the years, it developed itself, so that Carpatrek was born in  2016. We are a team of three friends, three mountaineers Cătălin Cătană, Mircea Moldovan and Ovidiu Oprea.

We met in adolescence, in 2003 at scouts (National Organization of Romanian Scouts), where we got in contact with nature, we came to appreciate the mountains and became very interested and impressed with this environment.

After a few years, in 2010, we have come to find each other again, this time as adults, having the same passion, which will become a bond for us, :) namely mountain activities. We started to go up the mountain together and somehow we fit pretty well. Though different natures, we have learned to be flexible so that we can form a team. After many trekking routes taken together, in Carpathian mountains and  other mountains in Greece, Italy, Switzerland, Austria, France, we came to realize even more the bond between us, the mountaineering experience accumulated and how well we got to know each other, to function as a team.

We continued to go hiking and climbing on the routes that we found accessible and at the same time interesting, when and how we could, enjoying ourselves every time. Being involved as volunteers in a non-formal education NGO, inevitably we have organized several outings for both Scouts and from time to time for our friends. We got excited for the joy of those with whom we climbed the mountain, people who might not have had the opportunity otherwise and we realized that we like to do this, to be with people who appreciate the mountain, even more if we can help them discover this passion.

In 2016 after a training course, that aim to improve our abilities to guide groups in different mountaineering conditions. organized by the Romanian Mountain Guides Association, we received the qualification needed to do the next step: certified mountain guides.

Today we are Carpatrek team. :)

Mountains teaches you a lot. It's more than physical exercise: it's a way to know yourself and others. But to be really enjoying what the mountain can offer, you must know the it's rules, or to have someone to guide you along. That's what team Carpatrek does: They guide you to conquer your mountains... internal and external ones.
