overview

This Transylvanian challenge is a great experience for trekkers, where we explore one of the hidden corners of Europe. We discover Saxon villages, medieval fortresses and churches, the Carpathian and Faragaras mountains and of course the history that surrounds Count Dracula. Each day we trek for a full day from one accommodation to the next. It’s both a physical and cultural challenge that will bring Transylvania to life.

Marie Curie Cancer Care is a UK charity dedicated to the care of people with terminal illnesses by providing care and support through hospice services. All of Marie Curie's services are free to patients and their families, thanks to the generous support of the public. The support received means that people are given the choice of where and how to spend their final days.
