tips and advice
This site is dedicated to providing useful information on wilderness backpacking and hiking.
Wilderness backpacking is a fantastic activity that presents opportunity
for adventure and discovery. It can be done alone, with a partner, in a
group or as a family.
There is undoubtedly something very
special and unique about setting up camp miles from any civilization,
about waking up and watching a sunrise deep in the mountains and that
rewarding feeling of independence that comes with it.
Exploring wild areas on foot is not only an opportunity to increase your
wilderness awareness, you will also be able to see incredible views
that sometimes can take your breath away. Many great places on our earth
can only be seen by foot.
My many backpacking trips during the
last 30 years have given me many unforgettable moments and, lucky me,
still there are many more fantastic places to visit and spectacular
views to be seen.
However, before you head for the wilderness, spend time to prepare your
trip. Careful preparation is essential for all wilderness travels to be
safe and successful.
