There are 6 minor Heroic Encounters and 1 Major Heroic Encounter in Barovia. The minor encounters pop up around the map and last for a set period of time, and are as follows:

Restless Dead -- (2458, 763)
Merchant Misery -- (1561, 1904)
Martikov Merchants -- (2028, 800)
The Howling -- (650, 627)
The Taken -- (1660, 208)
Hostage! -- (185, 976)

There is 1 Major Heroic Encounter similar to the Tyrant and the King of Spines in Chult, which is Yester Hills. You'll see this often called out in zone chat, and is also directly related to the heroic requirement for the weekly quest. Complete all 7 of these encounters, and the achievement should unlock. You can see how many you've done in Journal --> Achievements --> Heroic Encounters --> Barovian Hero

Edit: Fuzzmeister J -- You do not get credit in a group. I did all of them in a group with no progress and the moment I went solo, they counted.
MathNotEvenOnceI've done each one 2x in day/night. No luck

KillersquirelzJust keep doing them. I thought I did all of them, then checked my journal and saw that I was still only at 1/7. If it's still not working, try resetting your xbox and trying them all again.

KillersquirelzThat does seem right, I think mine started counting when I was solo too. I edited the solution. Thanks!

planting42I had to redo a few - and I did all of them solo. I wonder if the laggy 1st day was messing with things. My map wasn't updating fog or war properly and had me making circles all over the place when I first got there. Also, over 120 instances of that zone probably broke something... one Heroic seems to not work if more than 1 person is inside its area.
