Charlie Ottley ventures deep into the breath-taking but little known mountains and forests of Carpathia.
Home to bears, wolves and the elusive lynx, this is perhaps the last great wilderness in Europe, seen as never before. Charlie provides a unique insight into the scenic beauty and rich culture of the region, exploring its chequered history from the mystical ruins of the ancient Dacian civilisations to its medieval communities, the heritage of which survives intact to this day.
In his quest to find remote villages, cross mountains and spot bears in the wild, Charlie Ottley meets a range of colourful characters including shepherds, artists, eco-warriors, craftsmen, trackers, even a Count.
Charlie also meets HRH Prince Charles to find out why he has a special interest in the area. Wild Carpathia captures the fragile majesty of a unique eco-system and show why it deserves to be preserved in all its glory for the benefit of future generations.
