About

Welcome to our hiking website!  There is something special about putting on a backpack – packed with only what you really need and what will become your home for the next coming days, weeks – and follow a trail into nature, up into the mountains. So special that you don’t want it to end and before you are even get home, you start planning the next hike. We have hiked together since 2007 and with this site we want to collect and share our experiences with like minded people. But we also hope to inspire others to start hiking.

So how did it all start?

It all started at a birthday party in Spjutstorp in Sweden in summer 2007. Both of us hadn’t any plans for the holiday and when we found out that we shared the same interest in hiking we decided to take a walk together on Skåneleden*. At this time we didn’t know each other very well. But it’s not often you meet someone that likes to walk with a backpack so we had to grab the moment and take the chance that it would work out well. And so it did, really well! Five years later and many hikes behind us we still have a lot of plans on doing hikes together.

If you have some questions, feedback or ideas you want to share with us, don’t hesitate to write a comment.

We hope you will enjoy our site.
