Re-Wild! 4 days wild camping in Valais
Have you dreamed about a wild experience in the mountains surrounded by like-minded people?
Imagine- your feet on a wild mountain trail breathing in fresh oxygen and beauty that come in the form of views, sounds, and smells.. hiking through the majesty of the wild mountain lakes and waterfalls when, after a long day outside you yet stay outside and sleep in a tent?
Welcome to 4-day wild camping experience in the French part of Switzerland- Valais.
Not only you will immerse in wild nature, and learn how to camp but also will discover ’Swiss old civilizations’. I know this sounds insane, but you can discover more than 400 years old culture when you hike in Switzerland.
Every day you will hike for 4-5 hours with a stable pace, taking time for being, immersing in incredible views, and enjoying group spirit.
This event is hosted and led by Ruta Mikulenaite, one of our Touring Monkeys’ partners.
What’s the plan?
Together with a group, you’ll hike for 4 days and 3 nights staying in a tent, cooking food for yourself and your hiking friends. In the evenings we will gather around the cooking pot or fire and share life and day stories.
Nature inspires being thyself therefore a lot of happen during those conversations, it’s beautiful to witness how individuals emerge into group spirit while sharing wild experiences.
Walking, connecting with nature and group, breathtaking views and mindfulness practices will allow you to come back to yourself.
The wild location will be revealed only to the participants of this wild trip. The only thing that we know is that we will meet at 9.52am at the starting point of the trip on July 6th.
Ruta has done multiple wild camping trips in this region and now is ready to share the best of it with you!
We do not like eating from packs or artificial foods. All food is carefully selected and prepared in the evening and morning with healthy ingredients. Food will be vegetarian- vegan. You will need to bring your own lunch for all days.
The rest of the food- it will be brought by the leaders at the beginning and dispatched among participants. Expect 1kg extra in total.
Total Physical effort for 4 days:
38-40km, 2200-3200m+ and 2200-3000m- of elevation gain ((The objective is rather not a distance but the inner journey, nature & human connection)
On day 2, it’s possible to leave camping gear once arrived and climb an extra 250m for a stunning sunset.
On day 4, it’s possible to wake up for a stunning sunrise and do extra.
