Gutsy Girls will connect you with your team mates, so you can plan training hikes, meetups and prepare for your adventure together. In Sweden will hike together each day, the speed in which we trek may be different, but we our aim is to stick together!
There will be a Gutsy Girl host joining you for the adventure, however please note this trek is not guided. Our aim is to support you, empower you and take the intimidation out of your first multi-day hike!
We are encouraging those who’ve never done a multi-day hike to join us! Over the 6 days we will trek 110km on varying terrains, we’ll be carrying everything we’ll need for the hike, we anticipant this will weigh between 16kg - 20kg.
You’ll need a good level of fitness for this trip and recommend getting out on some longer hikes to prepare and test out your gear.
Fjällräven have put together a guide to the gear you’ll need. We encourage our team to share tents, camping stoves and other gear to keep our backpacks light and reduce initial costs of gear for our newbie hikers.
If you are new to hiking, do consider that you may need to invest in a fair bit of kit. No doubt you’ll fall in love with wilderness adventures after this experience, you’ll get plenty of use from it in the future.
With changeable weather conditions in Sweden, you will need a good quality tent (festival tents just won’t cut it!) and definitely invest in a top quality waterproof jacket and trousers!
