Fjällräven founder Åke Nordin created the first Fjällräven Classic in Sweden to enable people who were curious about hiking but not ready to do it by themselves the chance to experience the benefits of a multi-day trek. Fjällräven Classic has since become a highly anticipated global trekkingseries with a strong following community around the world. Fjällräven Classic is not a competition. Trekkers carry all that they need on their back, walk at their own pace, and spend days with like-minded individuals on iconic trails around the globe, forging new friendships and developing a love for nature.
“We've been on this trek for over fifty years now. Let's hope we never arrive.”
Ake Nordin Founder of Fjällräven 1936 - 2013
Three different landscapes in three years, that's what Fjällräven Vándortúra provides:
in 2024 we'll be targeting the Bükk Mountains, then in 2025 the Lake Balaton and in 2026 we will visit the Mecsek Mountains.
Bükk Mountains have highest average height in Hungary! The karst plateau is unrivalled when it comes to natural attractions. It is also home to Hungary's largest continuous forest area.
The hills above the northern shores of Lake Balaton, aka the Hungarian sea, are home to volcanic mountains. The basalt slopes are home to one of the country's most unique wine regions.
Visit Hungary's southernmost mountains with a mediterranean climate on a 4-day hike, where the forest, the mountains and deep, refreshingly cool valleys will be the main attractions.
There are two checkpoints each day, one during your hike and another one at the campsite.Make sure to have your Tracking Pass stamped at each checkpoint. No matter if you are young, slightly older, fast or slow, once you walk through the finish line, you will become a different person. And we will all celebrate that with a party on the last evening.
The organizers aim to make Vándortúra as eco-friendly as possible. The participants are urged to collect garbage on their tracks, and although it is an extra load to carry, based on our experiences, everyone is taking it seriously. By the last day, a significant amount of garbage is collected from the surrounding landscape. Little by little, we make a difference. It is also expected of each participant to carry their own water bottle, cookware and cutlery.
