The third event in the 2020 40tude Adventure Series finds us in the Transylvanian Alps of Romania, taking a remote and wild journey through stunning scenery, while raising vital funds for 40tude.
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 four day trek winds through the rugged and majestic Bucegi and Piatra Crailui mountains, surrounded by glacial lakes, alpine grasslands, and vast, undisturbed, ancient woodlands. It incorporates three summits, adding to the element of challenge. In addition to wonderful scenery, this area is home to some amazing wildlife – brown bear, wolves, lynx and bison as well as Golden Eagles and the rare, elusive Ural Owl. We will trek through remote communities, scattered across the valleys, where the locals lead simple, rural lives.
