Those who have walked the Fjällräven Vandortura know what these days have to offer, as the experiences of previous years are vivid memories.

What is the Fjällräven Vandortura offering you for the price you are paying for the ticket on this multi days trekking trip? We have collected in detail what this adventure offers in exchange for the entry fee - as we offer much more than the items listed, but exactly how much will be revealed only to those who walk with us!
Organizing such a community event is a year-round task – we have to obtain permits from several authorities, because we will be walking through nature reserves. Throughout the year, the organizers strive to make the Fjällräven Vándortúra run smoothly for the participants, update and operate the website, organize food, communicate with hikers, answer questions, coordinate activities.
Although the map and telephone navigation are in everyone's pocket, we all know how easy it is to get lost in the woods. This is why we have a team of hikers who will mark the route with ribbons. Of course, we leave no trace, so the sweeper team will collect the ribbons at the end of each day. This will allow you to just enjoy the route without having to check the map all the time! Just follow the fox!
Check points, which also double as refreshments points can be found at pre-determined locations during the hike, where you can stay and have a break. The tour is assisted by more than a dozen volunteers, you can address them any time and they will help you with your requests. At the end of each day's journey, a sweeper team walks the route to ensure no one is left in the woods for the night - safety first and most important!
Our team is backed by trained lifeguards, thankfully there has never been a serious problem, but we will not risk anything! Any minor injuries, bruises, will be treated with expert care and will take care of your health.
Everybody sleeps in their own tent during the hiking tour - but the location of the campsites play an important role throughout the week! We've been searching for the best campgrounds for you, and there are some that we're particularly proud of - their magical atmosphere will fascinate you if you join us. It is not allowed to camp everywhere in Hungary, therefore we need to ensure we enough space for everyone on designated campsites.
The campsites provide decent mobile or regular toilets everywhere.
