Fjällräven Vándortúra

Dear Vándortúra-Trekkers!

Fjällräven’s mission is to inspire more people to take a walk with nature. We have been on this trek for almost 60 years. The Fjällräven Vándortúra means the celebration of hiking and preserving the national traditions of backpacking for us. We work on the preparation and implementation of the event with great enthusiasm every year. As last year’s hike was cancelled due to the pandemic, we were looking forward at the beginning of this year to continue the tradition and meet you up at Vándortúra this summer.

In order to keep our promise, we have actively followed the relevant statements and provisions closely, and have been in regular consultation with the competent authorities in the last couple of months. From the very beginning, the principles of the Fjällräven Vándortúra include that all nature enthusiasts can apply for the hike, and that we create safe conditions for passing the set routes and for camping.
We see that we should not ease these standards in the current, precarious situation, so with a sore heart we have made the decision to postpone the event to next year. Applicants who have already registered for Vándortúra can choose from two options:

1. The registration will be valid for 2022, so those who choose to postpone can take part in the Fjällräven Vándortúra at the current price without further payment next year.
2. A refund of the fee can also be requested, in which case the applicant will receive a refund of the full amount paid.

Please let us know about your decision by writing to the following e-mail address: info@fjallraven-vandortura.com

Thank you for your understanding!

“We´ve been on this trek for over fifty years now. Let's hope we never arrive.”

Fjällrävens Mission is to inspire more people to take a walk with nature. We do this by developing durable and functional Outdoor Equipment that never goes out of fashion. What Fjällräven really want is to make it easier for people to enjoy spending time in nature, on nature ́s term. The more time we spend in nature, the more we grow appreciation, love and respect for it.

Building on the inspiration and magic behind the Fjällräven Swedish Classic, we launched the Fjällräven Vandortura in 2014. This unique adventure not only taps into our Swedish history, but builds community and long-lasting memories for all who attend this 5-day epic journey. Travel through the Balaton surroundings, walk through wonderful winery hills, and enjoy the company of like-minded outdoor enthusiasts who are seeking to learn more about protecting our environment and enjoy nature. The journey isn’t easy, but the experience of living simply and caring for the earth during this time is unforgettable. Our goal is to inspire and enable more people to get outside while preserving and protecting nature.

Balaton-Uplands

The Fjällräven hiking tour is a 5 day long special treat across the highlands of Balaton lake. With the organization of this tour we would like to bring back to life the tradition of hiking because every second spent by embracing nature and ourselves is the biggest gift we can reward ourselves with. If you are interested in hiking across Hungary grab the possibility of joining our community and take the next step forward together with us on the highlands of Balaton. Spending several nights in nature sleeping in tents is a determinative experience which enhances the body and revives the soul.
The Fjällräven hiking tour lasts 5 days. On each day the participants have to succeed on defined distanced. The hike has two base rules, the first is that everybody has to bring the equipment for him/herself and he/she must sleep in a tent during the night. The resting places will be marked in advance for everybody.
Furthermore, there is no time limit, this is not a race. Everybody can and should carry out the hike with his/her own speed. The main goal is that everybody should have a good time.
