Project Independence

Transylvania

Ever wanted to venture to a realm credited with the inspiration for Count Dracula? Well now you can! Romania is a country steeped in history, folklore and legend, but it is also so much more.
 
Fancy waking up at dawn to watch the sun rise over the Suhard mountains? Wouldn’t mind jumping some rapids down Colibita River? This is the chance you’ve been waiting for.
 
Project Independence: Transylvania will take you on an incredible ride through some of Romania’s most epic scenery over 14 life-changing days.
 
Think incredible trekking, breath-taking mountains and getting to know some amazing locals to boot. You’ll be involved in some important community engagement in Northern Romania exploring local development challenges with both local schools and children’s homes. You will also get the chance to kayak through spectacular scenery across one of the country’s most beautiful lakes - or perhaps you want the adrenaline rush of white water rafting down the spectacular river instead? The choice is yours!
 
Whatever you do, this Transylvanian Expedition will be sure to give you the time of your life!

Go on, #getinvolved
