It’s that time of year when we are preparing to open sales for Classic tickets across several events. It’s an exciting time to be able to welcome veteran trekkers back to the Classics and meet new friends starting on their hiking journey. No matter your experience level, the Classics are for everyone. We are excited to have more people than ever hike with us this year.
If you haven’t heard about a Classic before to put it simply, it’s a trek through nature. You carry all you need on your back and we, Fjällräven, take care of the logistics including freeze-dried food, transport, route planning and few other surprise extras along the route. For us, the goal has always been to enable more people to get out in nature and experience spectacular trekking. The first Classic was the Swedish event which started in 2005. Now there are 8 Classic treks across the globe - Denmark, USA, Hong Kong, Korea, Germany, Scotland and China - there is something for everyone. Each Classic trek offers a unique experience, bringing participants closer to nature, and showing off some of the most spectacular wildernesses in the world.
