Jersey Cheshire Home - Trek the Balkans, September 2022

10th - 17th September 2022

2022 will see the 7th Cheshire Home Trek take place. Following amazing challenges that have seen our trekkers experience amazing world wonders such as Machu Picchu and Petra and taking on the challenge of altitude, heat, monsoon, 2022 is set to be no different.

Why not join us climbing the highest peaks of Kosovo, Montenegro, Albania and Macedonia.

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), its 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.

The trek takes place between 10-17 September 2022. Registration requires a non-refundable deposit of £350 which is offset against the total cost due. Based upon a group size of 20, the travel cost would be £1,295 per person, plus airport taxes (not including Jersey flights to the U.K.). Minimum sponsorship required per trekkers will be £1,600. 

Additionally, extension opportunities will be available (subject to availability).

Previous trekking experience an advantage but not essential, and a good level of fitness on departure will ensure that participants really do enjoy what will again be an amazing experience.

So get those boots on and join us on what is set to again be an experience of a lifetime. Our treks are about people taking on challenges that our residents and the people the Home supports are not able to and have previously changed peoples’ lives, so let 2022 be the year you take that step and change yours!
