Uncover the natural beauty of the Făgăraș mountains, their intact forests, wildflowers and rich biodiversity, home to an extraordinary number of indigenous species The journey is an immersion into the great forest wilderness, staying at outposts deep in the Făgăraș Mountains and experiencing close encounters with the region’s extraordinary flora and fauna in ranger-led hikes. Carpathia is Europe’s most ambitious nature restoration project, to date. Barbara and Christoph Promberger, alongside their experienced team of wildlife scientists, naturalists and botanical specialists, have a vision to restore the deep valleys, soaring mountains and rebounding forest to its wild and prosperous state. This journey is an expedition deep into the wilderness, tracking lynx, boar, eagles and European brown bear whilst, alongside naturalist guides, learning about the extraordinary diversity of endemic plants and wildflowers that pattern and enrich this unique landscape. Christoph and Barbara Promberger have dedicated their careers to protecting large carnivores, conserving biodiversity, and fighting illegal logging in Europe’s last remaining virgin forests. The couple founded the Carpathia Large Carnivore Project, Equus Silvania equestrian centre and Foundation Conservation Carpathia. €8,375 / $8,375 PER PERSON (Based on two people sharing) INCLUDES 20% DONATION TO FCC SMALL GROUP EXPERIENCE (Limited to 14 guests) INCLUDED: Overnight in Sibiu Tour of Sibiu Wildlife Tracking Daily Treks with Naturalist Guide Accommodation Throughout Engagement with Breeding Programme Airport Transfers Full Board Throughout Dedicated Hosting by Christoph & Barbara Promberger
