Hit the Road Again - Time to Get Outside With Our Best Brands
Remember the good old days of international travel?
They may have hit a brief roadblock, but it’ll soon be time to dust off your pack & cross those borders once more.
We asked some friends of Altitude Sports to choose their favourite backpacking experiences, where their next destination will be once borders open up, and what they’ll be packing from our best outdoor travel brands.
The Corsican Bros by Sébastien Gauthier-Perron
The Island of Beauty. In June of 2007, fresh out of university, I embarked on a two-week journey on the GR20 in Corsica with my best friend. After months of planning, the excitement peaked on the morning of our departure! At the entrance to the trails, the groundskeeper had a surprise: according to him, our bags were too heavy, and he advised leaving some equipment behind. Obviously, we knew better... In this picture, taken after several hours of hard climbing, I admit that I started to have my doubts!
It was a unique and memorable adventure, a perfect bridge between student life and our new professional careers.
Now that I’m a father of two young daughters, I travel differently, discovering the planet with my family.
Next destination: Hawaii for the beaches, the surf, the volcanoes, and who knows - a dino encounter at Jurassic Park?

Sweden’s Northern Beauty by Catherine Prud'homme
One of my most incredible adventures was in North Sweden, just below the Arctic Circle. I covered 110 kilometers in seven days and experienced the most stunning range of light and landscapes - and every single weather pattern you can imagine!
Next destination: Vietnam. For the food, the culture, the mountains...can’t wait to pack up and go!

The Call of Everest by James Fabbi
My best backpacking destination / experience was definitely my last trip to Nepal in 2018, together with my brother Simon. It was our second time hiking the Himalayas, but this time our goal was none other than heading to Everest Base Camp.
Future destination: Climbing Aconcagua in Argentina, it’s the highest non-technical climb in the world, also the highest peak outside of Asia.
