Backcountry camping for beginners

If you want to learn more about how to plan and make your own camping adventures in the mountains, then this course is for you! For four days we sleep, live, eat and navigate in the mountains to become better outdoor people. If you join this trip, you will gain knowledge that means that next time you may go on a tent trip in the mountains on your own!

Preparation and packing

You will receive help and advice on what potentially needs to be bought, rented or borrowed through FaceTime, mail and cellphone – contact me with what you lack and we will take a look at it. Exercise with a 20-25 kg backpack at home well in advance for a good experience. Before departure, we ensure everything is controlled and optimised so that you get a good and safe experience.

Gear needed

A detailed equipment list for you to consider will be sent to you upon contact. This equipment list is meant to help you compile your personal gear. Most items are required. Please consider each item carefully and be sure you understand the function of each piece of equipment before you substitute or delete items. Don’t cut corners on the quality of your gear.

During the adventure, we live two and two in tents. You need to carry your own equipment and food as well as parts of the shared equipment.
