  • Very warm sleeping bag + very comfortable sleeping pad + spacious tent + light backpack = best hiking experience.
  • The easiest way to go hiking with good gear without buying anything yourself.
  • Enjoy hiking. You don’t have to do preparations, plan the route, find your way, search for campsite, do the dishes, or maintain all the gear after the hike.
  • Get away from everyday life and find inner peace.
  • Get to see the best things about the destinations.

  What You Don’t Get On My Hikes

  What if the Weather Is Bad

There’s no need to be afraid of rain, we’ll be alright with my gear.

However if there’s bad weather forecasted for the days you’ve booked and you don’t want to go because of it, you can always change the booking to another time, or we can change the destination to some place that has better weather!
