Even before getting to the start I met people going to the same event as I. We talked for a while and decided to travel together. We liked each other’s company and in the the end we walked over the finish line together. In 2016 I joined the event again, this time as a host. I really love the Classic events and each time I collect memories for life. At the danish version we all gather in the evenings and it feels like a big family out on a holiday adventure. You walk through villages, green forest, over grassy fields and once in a while you even walk past a pub or an ice-cream stand. Interested? Join the family!
The Fjällräven Classic concept started in northern Sweden in 2005. After many successful years and a growing number of participants, they decided to add a new classic in Denmark. In 2013 the inaugural event had just a few hundred participants, mainly Danes. By 2016 this number had risen to 600 and with trekkers from 16 different countries.
