What kind of hiker are you?

Are you a peace-seeking hiker who comes to nature in search of a balance for the rest of life ? Are you going to travel routes because of the freedom that every step of the way brings ? Or are you a long distance walker with stages ready from ladder to ladder and want to take a measure with yourself ?

Maybe you’re the one who brings your kids to explore the secrets of the forest.

What kind of hiker are you? 

Be free to be yourself, find your inner hiker, one of your survivors, or be exactly what you already know you are. 

However, remember to respect nature and other hikers.

In this way, we will preserve what we have now, also in the future.
