SSAFA - Trek the Balkans, June 2022

5th - 11th June 2022

Climb the highest peaks of Kosovo, Montenegro, Albania and Macedonia in aid of SSAFA

Join SSAFA on a beautiful secret European trek following the peaks of the Balkans through four countries.

Our challenge is to conquer three of the highest peaks in the heart of the Balkans – Kosovo, Montenegro, Albania and Macedonia. We start our adventure in welcoming Kosovo with its rich traditions and simple lifestyle. Kosovo is a true undiscovered gem where we conquer Mount Gjeravica (2,656m), the highest peak and the second highest in the Dinaric Alps Range. From Kosovo, we cross-borders through wild and remote landscapes into Montenegro to summit Mount Zla Kolata (2,534m). We finish our epic adventure by summiting Albania and Macedonia’s highest peak – Mount Korab (2,751m), which rises high above the border.


  • I highly recommend Ultimate Challenges to anyone looking to organise a challenge event. Their enthusiasm for what they do is evident in every part of their service. Their UK staff, leaders, doctors and ground crew are second to none. - Connie Potter, Event Fundraising Manager WaterAid
