Hiking in Finland

Climbing, bikepacking, skiing & packrafting in the north

The Week in Review X

I’m back from the Ultralight Summit, and what an event it was. Great people, awesome country and scenery, lots of different UL gear, high camps, gear talk, and lots of laughter. Now planning for the Ultralight Summit 2013 starts!

Time for a ridge walk

It’s the time of the year where the gear shops make shopping very tempting with very good offers. The Bergfreunde still have up to 50% discounts on selected gear - my tried & true recommendations: Salomon Speedcross 3 trailrunners, Smartwool Toe Mini Socks and the Rab Stretch Neo Jacket.
