This is a hiking, biking and general outdoor adventure group! Based out of Lausanne but members stretch from Geneva to Fribourg, Bern, and even Zurich. I'd like to organize hikes in different areas and perhaps even venture to France and Italy if there's interest during the warmer months for longer hikes on weekends. This is only the beginning!
We're looking for group leaders that can help organizing in the different types of events (hiking, cycling, VTT, happy hours, etc). Especially since in general hiking, biking, and running can mean different things to different people. Some may prefer a leisurely stroll down a shady path for a mile or two, while others prefer a moderate paced journey up to the top of a peak. In general, the difficulty of the trip will depend on the length of the trip, the pace, and the elevation. In general, the more difficult the adventure, the happier I am. (Thus why we should probably get some other people planning events! ;) For me the fun is not only in meeting new people and exploring new regions, but also in the dreaming, planning, and preparing for the journey. I hope you all will get equally as involved and try to get others interested that are fun, easy-going, and love to be outdoors!
I would like to organize a Haute Route, 6 days trip in the swiss mountains, Valais. I am thinking about Chamonix - Zermatt, a mythic hiking. Anyone interested in joining a group? Would be in August. We need a minimum of 4 people to make it happen. Price around 1400 chf, all inclusive, with of course the guide.
