About the challenge

Hope and Homes for Children’s vision is a world where no children suffer institutional care. Every step you take will ensure children in Romania are given the chance to grow up in the love and protection of a family.

 

The Carpathian Mountains stretch for 1500km through Central and Eastern Europe. Our wonderful, varied trek takes us to little-visited Central Romania, where these beautiful and awe-inspiring mountains provide some of the best trekking in Europe – and a memorable challenge for us! We take in steep mountain passes, ancient forests, sweeping valleys and striking rock formations en-route to Omu Peak (2507m), the highest point in the region. These spectacular mountain landscapes are also culturally rich, dotted with Transylvanian castles and small towns little-changed since medieval times. Our route is tough at times, but the wild, inspiring landscapes are a just reward for our efforts. We will also be able to visit some of the charity’s life-changing projects, a privileged insight into the work enabled by your fundraising.
