Nelson Lakes National Park

Thick clouds form in the sky as we park our car on the Mt Robert carpark (880m). What happened? There was bright sunshine just a minute ago…
But hey, there is no bad weather and we are not made from sugar. Put the sweater out and put on the rain jacket and then let’s go to the Angelus Hut (1650m).

Harz Witches’ Trail

In the center of Germany lies one of the most beautiful hiking trails of the country: The Harz Witches’ Trail.
With a total distance of 150km, the long-distance trail leads from Osterode to Thale. It combines magical places with largely untouched nature and insights of the history of the Harz mining industry.

Winter trekking​ in the ​Ore Mountains

The firs bend under the snow. The air is cold and clear. It is silent on the clearing. I put my head back and look up to the sky. Countless stars twinkle down. The snow reflects their light and turns the forest in milky white light.

The right snowshoes for you

Snowshoes are not all alike. What are the differences you should pay attention when buying (or borrowing), you will find out here.

The perfect backpack and how to organize it

A backpack has the right size if everything you want to take with you fits inside. No more and no less.

Often it is difficult to estimate what you will need on the way. In many cases that leads to packing too much. What you really need of equipment is closely related to what you’re up to.

Leather shoe vs. membrane shoe

Transalp Munich-Venice

The idea of crossing the Alps has for sure gone through every head with love for the mountains. In fact, more and more people choose to cross the Alps by foot. However, before the adventure begins, the route has to be chosen, because there are countless routes across the Alps.

Blade Ventures

Two men, four inline skates, six months and 7000 kilometres

This is the plan of Marian and Santiago from Halle (Saale). They want to travel through South America … on skates … in this way an unprecedented project.

Kungsleden

The snow is crunching under the snowshoes. Nothing else: no noise penetrates the silent winter landscape. The snow sparkles in the sun and we are hiking in the middle of it. There is no one around but us from horizon to horizon.

Saxon Switzerland

Finally, it is time – we are on a hiking trip again. Let’s take our backpacks and make sure the GPS has the right information. ;)

Chimborazo national park

My pulse is racing as I snap for air. Every inch of my body hurts. We are at 4,308 meters above the sea level. I´ve never been in such an altitude before! We stop hiking and taking a break. My pulse calms down and I´m able to take a deep breath.
