Join Francis House Children's Hospice in 2019 on the trip of a lifetime to the ‘Accursed Mountains’ of Albania.

Following the amazing success of our previous treks, which have so far raised a staggering £112,000 in sponsorship, Francis House are inviting supporters to join our 2019 trek in the Albanian Alps. This will be an exciting journey taking in Alpine scenery, high passes and stunning valleys.

The Albanian Alps offer an unspoilt wilderness of magnificent snow-capped peaks, gorges, lakes and dense forests, dotted with tiny stone-built hamlets that have changed little in years.

This challenging trip will take place from 7th – 15th September 2019 and will involve five full days of adventurous trekking. During this time, you’ll enjoy breath-taking and remote mountain panoramas whilst hiking between simple guesthouse accommodations in traditional mountain villages.

Find out more at our information evening on February 26th, 7pm.

Hear all about what you can expect from this incredible trip, and meet other trekkers who are taking on the challenge this year too. This will take place in the function room at Francis House, from 7pm onwards. Supper will be served during the evening, free of charge! Let Rachel know if you’d like to attend.

The trek will cost £1,124 per person. This includes flights, accommodation, meals and tour leaders, but excludes personal travel insurance.

In addition, we ask each trekker to raise a minimum of £1000 for Francis House. We will help you to build a fundraising plan to reach the target and will offer tips, advice, fundraising materials and support.
