Back in the 1970s, Fjällräven's founder Åke Nordin invited a group to test his new functional outdoor clothing and equipment while enjoying the Swedish outdoors – the origin of the well-known hiking event Fjällräven Classic. At first, the event was held only in northern Sweden, but over time, the idea matured to meet the needs of the ever-growing international trekking community. Now, this epic event takes place all over the world.
The concept is the same everywhere: participants are on their own or in small groups with their own tents, sleeping bags, stoves, etc. on a set route. They pass several checkpoints where they get help, medical care if needed and a nice chat. Each participant is encouraged to leave their campsite exactly like they found it – if not in even better condition. The point is to be as mindful as possible in nature, to share experiences and enrich each other.
The ideal equipment for Fjällräven Classic, of course! Even if you couldn't get one of the coveted tickets this year – with one of our three prizes you are already optimally equipped for this hiking season. And maybe you will be able to participate next year: We are looking forward to seeing you!
