We all heard about hiking. We saw people who go camping (well, at least from afar, at the station). And maybe they even looked at pictures of hiking. But only a few of us decided to go hiking ourselves. And not everyone could like

There may be several reasons for this. Perhaps this is a mismatch between the objectives of the campaign for different participants. Maybe the unsuccessful organization of the campaign or the poor preparation of one of the members of the group. Or uncomplicated relationships within the team during the campaign ... The reasons may be different, but this page is not to analyze them.
The taste of hiking.

Hiking is a contact with the incredible beauty of the wild.
A hike is an immersion in the beauty, purity and silence of natural nature (that which we are deprived of in the city).
A hike is the romance of bonfires and the splendor of sunsets.
Campaign is an opportunity for personal growth.
Campaign is an unforgettable experience and new friends ...
In the end, it is such a form of relaxation, every moment of which is saturated with emotions and a sense of life. Every moment of a hiking trip is lived by its participant as consciously as possible.
