Here come old flattop, he come grooving up slowly (Come together – The Beatles)
Forests, meandering rivers, rolling hills, wildlife and even some sheer rock faces!
We even have our own “high” plateau!
What? A plateau? A highland? In Belgium?
Yep. And it’s just high enough to even host some snow over some cold winter weeks.
We even have gentle alpine ski slopes over there and some nice cross-country skiing.
No, that’s not a joke!
It’s called the High Fens, and it was the decor of our first guided outing with members of Hiking Advisor, another project where I am deeply involved. Hiking Advisor is a small NGO with the aim of promoting safe, responsible and pleasant backpacking. The site is in Dutch, hence our target audience.
This way we ended up with 15 aspiring winter hikers in our wake. Some stills and a short video impression will do the rest.
