THE HIGH COAST HIKE FESTIVAL

The set-up is simple, you bring your own equipment and tent while we invite likeminded people, select the most beautiful hiking routes in the High Coast, organize transport, food, cooking fuel, maps, outdoor school, seminars and after-hike. You hike in your own pace to the various check-points and at night we meet up at the shared basecamps.
At the basecamps you can participate in the Outdoor School (first nightcamp) and the Equipment Seminars (second nightcamp) or just find your own viewpoint or join the company by the campfire. The hike is somewhat tough at stages hence we strongly recommend that you have practiced hiking with the weight you intend to carry before arrival.
