Multiday and multiweek tours in the Alps to mountain and long-distance hikes in far-off countries – such tours are usually done with more gear and cover longer distances. Frequently, these tours are performed in remote and often culturally “pristine” regions located far from civil­isation. Nights during trekking tours are usually spent in tents as well as huts or inns. The most important gear for such hikers is comfortable footwear that provides optimal support to the foot.

“Whether it’s scouting, filming eagles or paragliding – I think there is abso­lutely no substitute for the natural envir­onment of the mountains. We only have this one planet. Let’s take good care of it – for the sake of our children and grand­children.”
