Trek Transylvania

A region rich in tradition and myth

Since ancient times the territory of today’s Romania has been a borderland of European civilization. This fact has had a strong influence on Romanian culture and its people, who are now an exotic mixture of Oriental, Slavic and Occidental elements.

Your trek takes place in Romania’s famed Transylvanian Alps. A small and lightly-populated region of the country, it is nevertheless rich in tradition and myths. You will make contact with locals; sleep in small mountain villages, taste traditional food, and at the same time trek in two of the highest mountain ranges of Romania. 

You will visit the 14th century Romanian icon, Dracula’s Castle. This beautiful castle was fabulously renovated in the 19th century by the royal family of Romania. 

You will also be able to visit the Bucegi Mountains, famed for their rock formations, as well Piatra Craiului, ‘The King’s Rock’ National Park, which is now home to the Carpathian Large Carnivore Project (protecting wolves, lynx and bears).

A challenging yet very rewarding expedition, the Trek through the Transylvania Alps is also a trip back in time, to an area where tradition still guides people’s lives and where nature is wild.

Meningitis and septicaemia are devastating diseases which can kill or disable in hours. Although anyone of any age can get the diseases, babies, children and young adults are most at risk.

Your contribution will enable us to fund research into the prevention, detection and treatment of meningitis and septicaemia, provide life-saving awareness information and support people who have lost a loved one or are coping with after effects, like Charlotte.
