20 tips for a bivouac at the top

Written by Max of trekkingetvoyage.com

The good days come back and it is not the opportunities that will be missed to sleep under tent or to install a        

camp for a night directly in contact with Nature ...

 

1.  To begin, make sure to start your installation maximum 1 hour before sunset (learn according to the zone) , it would be a pity to see difficult to pitch your tent in the dark ... In the same context, do not install too early it would only attract the curiosity of other hikers.

 

2. Look for a place that is as flat as possible (or at worst "head taller than feet"), away from a creek (noise / moisture / insects) and wetlands . Be aware that it is often cooler near a stream and condensation accumulates more. Also avoid hollows that could flood. If it's cold, choose as much as possible a place that will welcome the first rays of the sun in the morning. The valleys are also cooler, but also the altitude ... Take the time to (well) choose your location!

BOTHY OF THE MONTH

Written by John D Burns of www.johndburns.com/

So, you’d like to visit a wild Highland bothy but don’t know which one to start with. Over the next few months I’m going to write about the bothies I love and give you some tips on which bothies might suit you and some hints on how to get there and what you should take.I’m starting out with a remote but easy to get to bothy, Glendubh (Pronounced Glendoo). This bothy is in a fantastic setting right on the west coast of Scotland near the village of Kylesku. The scenery is magnificent as it sits nestling on the side of a spectacular sea loch. It’s not unusual to see otters fishing in the loch and there are many sea birds to watch and there’s even a sporting chance you’ll see a Golden Eagle.

Hammock Chairs. Many thanks to you Jeep! They make life so much easier and comfortable while being in the outdoors.

HIKING GUIDE BULGARIA

Written by Lyuben Grancharov of bulguides.com/

The most famous mountain on the Balkans is also the longest – about 550 km in length from Belogradchishki Pass on Bulgaria’s west border to Cape Emine at the Black Sea, and between 30-60 kilometers wide in its different parts. The mountain stretches all along the country and divides it in two ranges – Northern and Southern Bulgaria.

OUR CABIN LIFE

Written by Nick of  ourcabinlifecom.wordpress.com

The cabin has 2 floors. The main floor which has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, kitchen, dining room and large living area, which is finished but could do with a spot of decorating. We also have a basement which is currently unfinished, but once I pull my finger out and do the work, we will have a further 2 or 3 bedrooms, another bathroom, laundry room, cold storage and a second large living area. Quite a big cabin really. As far as services, we have hydro (electric) and we are the last house on the grid. We suffer a lot of power cuts, so a backup generator is a must in these parts, which of course we do not have, but in time I’m sure we will.

Kumano Kodo Iseji: A Transformative Experience

When I began preparing to hike the Kumano Kodo, I had no idea what exactly it was I was signing up for.

 

You can throw around numbers like “14 days” and “170 kilometres”, but these are abstract concepts that don’t do justice to just how transformative a pilgrimage truly is.

The Call of the Wild: Nikkaluokta to Kebnekaise (19 km)

Last September (2016) we visited Arctic Sweden for the first time, trekking part of the 425 kilometre Kungsleden Trail. We were so impressed by the raw beauty and tranquillity of this unspoilt region that we made a decision to return the following autumn. Twelve months later we are back in Kiruna, gateway to the Swedish Arctic, waiting for a local bus to take us to Nikkaluokta to begin a trek along the Dag Hammarskjöldleden (The Dag Hammarskjöld Way), albeit in reverse ending, rather than starting, at the small settlement of Abisko.
