For many people, roaming alone through the vast mountains of Norway, the Cairngorms in Scotland or similarly deserted hiking areas is pure fulfilment, the supreme discipline in hiking or trekking. The peace and quiet and self-imposed solitude make solo tours a very special experience. You are completely on your own and have to make all […]

Slacklining is so easy to do. All you need are two trees! Wait, but what if you can’t find two trees strong enough to be your anchors? I mean, you can’t use any old thing. Your anchor points have to be capable of withstanding the extreme loads they’re put under. And, that’s no exaggeration. You […]
