Since ancient times, the territory of today¿s Romania has been a borderland of European civilisation, strongly influencing its culture and its people who are an exotic mix of Oriental, Slavic and Occidental.

Staying in small mountain villages, you'll get to know the locals and their culture, while tackling the rugged wilderness and the region¿s impressive mountain ranges as you trek Transylvania.

On the charity trek you¿ll travel 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.
