Trekking across Asia in aid of Exmoor

Marcello Fantoni is spending a year trekking across Central and Northern Asia, studying  nomadic cultures and how they are adapting to deal with the challenges of modernisation and urbanisation, and raising money to Support Calvert Trust Exmoor at the same time.



He will be travelling either by public transport or horseback, beginning his trek from the town of Oral in Kazakhstan, passing through Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, China and across central Russia, finishing at the town of Tiksi, Russia, on the Arctic Ocean coast, a distance of approximately 12,500 miles.


Marcello is hoping to raise at least £10,000 for Calvert Trust Exmoor from this amazing trek, a fantastic effort, which we will put straight into bursaries to help guests who require financial assistance to be able to have a holiday.


If you would like to support Marcello in his fundraising efforts you can donate through his JustGiving page:


We wish Marcello every success and safe travels on his epic journey!
