Ultralight Backpacking and Hiking Courses in Helsinki, Finland – Private Teaching

Hiking is doing the same thing and requires the same skills whether you use traditional or ultralight gear, but with ultralight gear your backpack is lighter and that makes hiking a lot more enjoyable.

Both ways require the same basic gear, but when going ultralight you just take notice of how much everything weighs when buying the gear, and you don’t carry anything unnecessary with you.

Ultralight doesn’t mean giving up on comfort, because at least for me that’s the whole point of going ultralight, to make hiking more comfortable when you don’t have to carry a massive and super heavy backpack.

Giving up on safety to be lighter isn’t there either, being safe is the base level for everything. Something being heavier doesn’t mean it would automatically be safer either. Heavier backpack also brings it’s own risks in form of being physically more demanding.

Light backpack. Easy steps. Easy on the mind.
