The North Face was built in 1968 on a love for the outdoors and the desire to enable all types of exploration, from its own California backyard to the Himalayas. Today, it explores new ways of designing products, protecting the places we love, and helping people to find the explorer within themselves.
Altitude Sports writer Reilly Doucet goes off the grid to embark on her first-ever trek in Cape Chignecto, Nova Scotia with the help of seasoned trekker Alexandra Desjardins and durable gear from The North Face. Together they conquer 52 kilometres of rugged coastline over four days, sharing triumphs, defeats, dehyrdated meals and a regained appreciation for the world around them.
We were born to explore. To be curious, to overcome challenges, to seek higher peaks and push limits. It’s all part of the approach. These are the experiences that connect us, inspire us and move the world forward.
Established in San Francisco over 50 years ago, The North Face sets the standard for outdoor enthusiasts and athletes needing all-season apparel for the most extreme environments.
