Hiking Trails

We continuously conduct hikes in various countries/regions (for example Iceland and the Alps) and of varying difficulty (including scrambling and via ferrata) to make trail routes and descriptions available for all readers. We also explain how you reach the starting point of each trail (whether by car or public transport) and what equipment you might need. Some hikes are very demanding and should only be done by the physically prepared while others can be done by families with kids.

Skuta Trail – Hiking the Alps

For the fifth hike of my “Hiking the Alps” tour I decided to climb the 2539 meters high Skuta which is a part of the Kamnik-Savinja Alps in northern Slovenia, close to the Austrian border. Skuta is the third highest peak of the Kamnik-Savinja Alps (after Grintovec and Jezerska Kocna) and thus offers a great… Read More »

Cima del Cacciatore Trail – Hiking the Alps

After climbing Jof di Miezegnot from Valbruna village, I stayed the night in Tarvisio in order to climb the the 2074 meters high Cima del Cacciatore mountain with my girlfriend next day. I choose Cima del Cacciatore because the trail seemed less physically demanding than trails to other mountains of… Read More »

Nanos Trail – Going Scrambling

Nanos is a small mountain in southwestern Slovenia, lodged in between northern Italy and Croatia, with several summits of which the highest is Plesa (1262 meters above sealevel). The great advantage of Nanos is that it is very easy to reach as the trans-European expressway E61 runs just below it and thus the mountain is… Read More »

Begunjscica Trail – Hiking the Alps

For the first hike of my “Hiking the Alps” tour, I decided to climb the Begunjscica mountain. Begunjscica is a little over 2000 meters high mountain in the north-western part of Slovenia; a small Central European country, bordered by Italy, Austria, Croatia and Hungary, where you find the easternmost part of the Alps. Begunjscica is… Read More »

Gradiska Tura Trail – Going Via Ferrata

As a warm-up for my “Hiking the Alps” tour, I decided to do the Gradiska Tura route, which is an interesting and dynamic via ferrata trail in western Slovenia. Slovenia is a small Central European country which is bordered by Italy, Austria, Croatia and Hungary, and it is here… Read More »

Himmelbjerget Trail – Hiking Denmark

Himmelbjerget is an around 148 meters high mountain in Jutland in Denmark. In December 2015 I concluded my “Hiking Iceland” tour and then stayed in Denmark for some time. Denmark is quite flat and therefore I was skeptic that I could find a tempting mountain to climb over there.  However, after doing some research on… Read More »

Reykjafell Trail – Hiking Iceland

As you might already know I’ve been on my “Hiking Iceland” tour for the last seven months. From September onwards the conditions for hiking have become relatively difficult; short day length, low temperatures and regular snow showers.  As these conditions require additional equipment, including crampons and an ice axe (which I didn’t bring to Iceland),… Read More »

Burfell Crater Trail – Hiking Iceland

The Burfell Crater is an old volcano near Reykjavik, around 170 meters high. As you might already know I started my “Hiking Iceland” tour in May 2015 by climbing small mountains as I didn’t have sufficient equipment (crampons and an ice axe) to ascend the more significant ones. In summer the snow had more… Read More »
