Albanian Alps Trek

22nd September 2023 - 8:00 am - 29th September 2023 - 5:00 pm

In September 2023 we will be taking a group of supporters on a trek through the Accursed Albanian Alps in aid of patient care at Saint Catherine’s!

The 8 day trek will see us Traverse lush green valleys, wildflower meadows and craggy passes in Albania and Montenegro, scale the heights of the Zla Kolata, Montenegro’s highest mountain (2,534m) and hike to the remote valley of Theth in the heart of the Albanian Alps.

Albania is a country with unspoiled landscapes and a traditional way of life. This little visited corner of Europe offers both astonishing beauty and wonderful hospitality. The spectacular Accursed Mountains are virtually impenetrable apart from a series of high passes that link remote communities to the outside world.

This trek is classed as a “challenging” trip that will test someone who is relatively fit and has a spirit of adventure. You may have had some previous experience, but this is not necessary as long as the correct training is undertaken. Each day will contain around 5-8 hours of trekking.

There are a variety of ways you can pay/fundraise for this trip, which we would be more than happy to discuss with you when you get in touch with us. For any further information or questions about the trek, please get in touch on 01723 378406 or email fundraising@saintcatherines.org.uk
