WHY ADVENTURES MATTER! | live for the outdoors
Over 10 million people in Britain alone have started a new outdoor activity in the past year. Hikers, trail runners, wild campers, climbers and wild swimmers from Cornwall to the Highlands don backpacks and head out into the hills, mountains and forests to immerse themselves in nature.
The great outdoors is a place where memories are created from moments that will stay with you forever. It’s a place where dreams come true, friendships are made and bucket lists take shape, paving the way for a life of adventure.
For many people, mountain trips and outdoor adventures are the perfect time to go solo; leave everyone and everything from our daily lives behind and get off the grid. For others, it’s all about friendship, companionship and sharing experiences with others. But what unites us all is the ambition to keep pushing our limits and chasing our dreams. Because we don’t just love outdoor adventures. We need them.
Berghaus has been helping people pursue these same dreams for over 50 years. As a leading outdoor brand with a history of cutting edge innovation, Berghaus makes versatile equipment that maximizes your time outdoors by doing trip after trip.
This fall and winter, they’re encouraging you to go above and beyond by going out and trying something new. And if you’re looking for inspiration, here’s someone who’s been there and made it …
“When I go out I feel different”
NIKKI is an avid hiker who was blown away (almost literally) by the beauty and power of the Scottish mountains when he attempted a winter ascent of Highland icon Ben Lawers.
“We were in snow up to the hips and winds of 50 kilometers. It was brutal. We didn’t make it to the true top of Ben Lawers, but the trip gave me a great sense of accomplishment. This was my first time hiking in the winter and it wasn’t my last. “The beauty of the Scottish mountains struck me. When the clouds moved, the views were just spectacular. It was unbelievable. I like to explore new places and seek different challenges. It distracts your mind from everyday life, where you have stimulated your mind so much. You’re still on your phone, checking your emails, then you go out and don’t have to worry about it. You are just very present and in the moment. “Being outside reassures me and relaxes me. It’s like therapy. When I go out I feel completely different. You don’t have to reach the top of a Munro. Creating good memories is the most important thing.
