This is your chance to join Phoenix Heroes on this incredible challenge, from 5 - 11 June 2022, and help them raise vital funds.
The first challenge in the Phoenix Heroes Adventure Series takes us in the stunning Transylvanian Alps of Romania, taking a remote and wild journey through stunning scenery, whilst raising vital funds for Phoenix Heroes. The Transylvanian Alps make up the southern end of the Carpathian Mountain Range, the third longest mountain range in Europe which arcs from the Czech Republic in the north west, through Slovakia, Poland, Hungary, the Ukraine and Serbia, to Romania.
This 4 day trek winds through the rugged and majestic Bucegi and Piatra Crailui mountains, surrounded by glacial lakes, alpine grasslands, vast and undisturbed ancient woodlands. Home to the most elusive mammals – brown bear, wolves, lynx and bison as well as soaring Golden Eagles and elusive Ural Owl. We have incorporated three summits throughout the trek to add to the element of challenge. Travelling through the local and remote communities, the villages are scattered across the valleys where the communities lead simple and basic lives. We will stay in basic local guesthouses and mountain huts.
This is a unique opportunity to share a fantastic experience with fellow supporters of Phoenix Heroes, while challenging yourself and raising all-important funds for the charity.
