Hiking is such a versatile activity - it helps your overall health, lets you discover the hidden wonders of the world, and broadens your horizons. Aside from hiking, HIGHLANDER offers you so much more. You hike a few days in the untouched nature, breathe the fresh air, and with every new step taken, come closer to your ''true'' self.
But moreover, at each checkpoint, you get to fully immerse yourself in the festival vibe of the event by joining educational lectures, yoga classes, book presentations, documentary screenings, or simply sitting under the starry night sky listening to live music playing into the night.
Experience the Adventure of a Lifetime through one of our three formats, whose new names highlight the most magical part of your journey.
You will fully understand their meaning once you come to the checkpoint, pitch your tent and simply look up at the most stunning dark sky glistening with billions of stars making up some of the most fascinating constellations.
A constellation is a group of stars forming a recognizable pattern in the night sky. The patterns are traditionally named after their apparent form or identified with a mythological figure. Modern astronomers divide the sky into 88 constellations with defined boundaries.
New HIGHLANDER format names are based on some of the largest constellations - Hercules, Pegasus, and Orion.
HIGHLANDER Hercules got its name after the Roman mythological hero adapted from the Greek hero Heracles. It is also the second-largest northern constellation and is simultaneously the longest HIGHLANDER route that spans over 5 days.
The second-largest format is named after a constellation in the northern sky, named after the winged horse Pegasus in Greek mythology. It is easily recognizable because it is dominated by a prominent asterism known as the Great Square. HIGHLANDER Pegasus takes you on a 3-day hiking journey.
Orion is a prominent constellation located on the celestial equator and visible throughout the world. It is one of the most conspicuous and recognizable constellations in the night sky and is the perfect constellation to represent the shortest format - HIGHLANDER Orion - that takes place during the weekend.
Now, wherever you are, when you look up at the magical night sky - it will forever remind you of the Adventure of a Lifetime you had while becoming a HIGHLANDER.
