The challenge

  • Traverse the Transylvanian Alps
  • Explore Count Dracula’s eerie castle
  • Ascend to over 2,400metres
  • Stay in small mountain villages
  • Visit the Carpathian Large Carnivore Project at King’s Rock National Park

Since ancient times, the territory of today’s Romania has been a borderland of European civilization, strongly influencing its culture and its people who are an exotic mix of Oriental, Slavic and Occidental. Staying in small mountain villages, we will get to know the locals and their culture, while tackling the rugged wilderness and the region’s impressive mountain ranges. The itinerary also travels out to the King’s Rock National Park, which was home to the Carpathian Large Carnivore Project, a conservation programme to protect and monitor wolves, lynx and bears. And of course you cannot leave Transylvania without the obligatory visit to the castle of Romania’s most famous son, Count Dracula.

This was an exhausting yet amazing challenge. Scenery was stunning, insight into the life of locals was fascinating and as a group we felt so proud of what we had achieved at the end of each day.
