Description

This will be a trip of ‘firsts’ as you hike through the unspoilt Sharr Mountain Range and its hordes of endemic plants and wildlife; home of the lynx, bear, roe deer, and wild boar.

But this is no stroll through the woods; this route will have your adrenaline pumping as you hug the ridge-line between the peaks and even camp close to the edge, with amazing views from your tent. You will aim to hike not just one peak, but up to four of the peaks in the range. Are you up for the challenge?
