SSAFA - Trek the Balkans, June 2021

13th - 19th June 2021

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 Mt. Gjeravica (2656m), 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 Mt. Zla Kolata (2534m).  We finish our epic adventure by summiting Albania and Macedonia’s highest peak – Mt. Korab (2751m), which rises high above the border.
