Jarda Zaoral is off on an adventure to climb the highest peak in every European Country
After moving from his home in the Czeck Republic to study in Sweden in 2012 and buying his first DSLR camera, Jarda Zaoral found a true passion for adventure and hasn't looked back since. Rarely found without his camera, Jarda has travelled to and around 55 countries and is now ready for a new challenge!
Starting with Halti (1,324m) in Northern Finland, Jarda will make his way through Europe, scaling every country's highest peak, until he reaches Ta' Dmejrek (253m) in Malta after 77 days. To keep things even more interesting, Jarda won't be just hiking up each of the peaks, some will be ridden, some hiked and some climbed, making it a real multi-activity challenge. The Alpkit Foundation couldn't think of a better trip to be supporting, all to raise the profile of a healthy outdoor lifestyle and get more people going nice places and doing good things. You can see the total list of peaks below:
|Country||Peak||Height||To The Top|
|Belgium||Signal de Botrange||694m||Biking|
|Portugal||Serra da Estrela||1,993m||Hiking|
Check out the video for Jarda's grand plans!
