Some stages will be felt in the body, but of course, there is time for breaks and rest.

Relaxation

Wanderlust gives us more time for breaks and to sit down and enjoy the magnificent views.

Camping Life

Campfires, relaxing on a cliff, taking a dip, or climbing a scenic mountain. The choice is yours.

Outdoor Schools

During the hike, we’ll be visited by outdoor companies who will share tips and tricks with us.

After-Hike

We finish at the top of the World Heritage Site before descending and continuing the celebration in the Outdoor Village.

About Wanderlust

High Coast Hike Wanderlust is based on the popular Original route, but we hike slightly shorter distances, giving us the opportunity to take more breaks. Join us and experience the beautiful nature, the great atmosphere, the courses, and all the fun that happens.

What is Wanderlust?

High Coast Hike – Wanderlust is an adventure for those who want to embark on a magnificent hike but desire a bit more time for breaks.

The hike remains challenging as we carry all our equipment, but you will have plenty of time to sit back and enjoy the breathtaking views or take a swim in the lakes in the forest or by a sandy beach along the coast.

Regardless of which experiences you choose, we all arrive at the same night camp.

Most participants arrive on Wednesday to join the pre-evening activities, and the adventure concludes on Saturday evening with an after-hike gathering in the Outdoor Village.

How challenging is Wanderlust?

Wanderlust is classified as ”moderate” 3/5 due to the distances and the time available. However, you still need to prepare your body. There are steep ascents and descents, and the terrain varies.

With the right preparations, Wanderlust is possible for most people, and over the years, well-prepared families with children have also hiked the trail. It often depends on your overall fitness combined with acclimating your body by hiking with a packed backpack before the adventure, gradually increasing the weight in the backpack step by step.

We hike approximately 10 kilometers per day, where on day two and three, you have the opportunity to go on ”explorer rounds” together with The Original if you feel like experiencing more.

If you experience challenges with your knees, back, or shoulders, you can also get assistance in transporting some of your gear back to the Outdoor Village on day three, allowing you to hike with a lighter pack on the last day.

We do everything to ensure that you have the best opportunity to enjoy the magnificent nature and the great camaraderie – but much depends on how well you’ve prepared.

If you feel uncertain, an alternative could be to register for Wanderlust Light, where we help transport tents and sleeping bags between the different night camps.

Is it possible to interrupt the hike?

During the over 10 years we’ve been organizing the High Coast Hike, few individuals have had to interrupt their hike. But it can happen.

Often, it’s because they haven’t properly packed their backpack with the gear they’re bringing or haven’t prepared their bodies by hiking with a backpack. For others, it may be an old injury resurfacing.

Regardless of the reason, the result is often sore shoulders, back, or knees, making it tough to complete The Original.

However, we do everything we can to help you continue participating in the adventure:

  1. We suggest shortcuts that allow you to miss some of the views but take it a bit easier.
  2. We can assist in transporting parts of your gear in some places. This is possible at Entré Syd and at the second night camp.
  3. You’ll receive transportation back to the Outdoor Village where you can set up camp and receive suggestions for personal tours before meeting up with the rest of the group on day 3.
  4. You’ll receive transportation back to the Outdoor Village where you can relax and prepare for the After-Hike.

Our goal is for you to still have a great experience, even if things don’t go exactly as planned this time.
