Don't be fooled HIGHLANDER is no walk in the park!
Temperatures from 10°C to 30°C
HIGHLANDER is for everyone from hard-core mountaineers to nature lovers looking for a challenge. The route is safe however it requires solid physical fitness. The route doesn't require extensive hiking experience however a prior exercise regimen is strongly advised.
To be able to enjoy our trail, starting a conditioning regimen prior to the event is strongly advised. (We recommend 200 km of hiking in the months leading to the event). The gear you will be packing for HIGHLANDER must be tested beforehand for full functionality (is your tent really waterproof, do you know how to use gas stove, etc).
Julian Alps are where Alpine and Sub-mediterranean climates meet. Expect fog and cold in the morning and 25°C, even 30°C and sunny during the day. However be ready for rainy days as well. Bring well-made and durable all-weather hiking clothing suitable for layering.
