Sharing our adventures

Who's to say what qualifies as an adventure? It can be big or small. It can involve old or young people. It can go on for years or be done in a moment. It can be daring or safe. Shared by many or involve just you. It might be successful or a valuable lesson learned. It can take place far, far away or in your backyard. We believe that everything you see as an adventure is one!

We simply love nature and hope to inspire you to enjoy an active life in the great outdoors.

There are about 50 boats racing this year, with a variety of boats from 8m up to 20+m long, some with professional crews, some with families.

Christoffer Nordin - Tour du Mont Blanc

Tour du Mont Blanc

Christoffer Nordin

This has been something I've said many times over the last couple of years: "Next summer I will walk Tour Du Mont Blanc". And every year something has come up that has created an excuse to postpone it. Not this year! The trek starts in Les Houches and takes you on an epic journey around the Mont Blanc Massif, covering around 170 kilometres and an accent/decent of some humbling 10 000 meters. The route is walked anti-clockwise and takes approximately 7-10 days (depending on how good the pasta is in Cormayeur). The path takes you through France, Italy and Switzerland. And back to France. To add a little to an already strenuous activity Christoffer has decided to do this trip solo and instead of using the huts along the route he's going to camp in the wild. Christoffer has worked with Light my Fire for a couple of years. Starting out as responsible for the development of their digital strategy and platform. So it's comes natural that he will be blogging during this adventure. Bonne chance!
