WHY YOU NEED TO DO AN OVERNIGHT HIKE
Making to jump from day hikes to an overnight hiking adventure can be a bit daunting for some, however it is one of the most unique and rewarding experiences and we are here to help you get started. Here are just a few of the benefits of overnight hiking:
Carrying everything you need on your back
One of the best ways to truly get back to basics in our modern society is the experience of setting out with everything you need on your back- the whole lot! Your accommodation, food, lighting, supplies….. Setting up camp for the night with only the contents of your bag is the best way to truly experience the nomadic existence that we are so far removed from in this day and age.
Connect with nature
The are no AC power plugs out in nature…. So leave it all behind and feel the total connection with your surroundings the way nature intended. Sleeping under the stars by the light of a campfire with no noise except that of the nature is the best way to have a technology detox and soothe your soul.Connect with like minded peopleWhat happens when there is no social media and TV as a distraction? People talk to each other!!Sitting around a campfire and talking to others is a great way to connect and fulfil your sense of community and belonging. As much as social media connects us, it’s also very isolating as it has become a replacement for face to face contact. It’s amazing what you can find out about yourself and other people by talking and sharing an experience out in nature!
An overnight hike is a great reason to set some goals…. giving yourself small fitness goals to work towards in the lead up to an overnight hike will keep you focussed and also give you an amazing sense of achievement once you conquer it!
Sure you can have a great night out on the town spending money on dinner at a restaurant, bit of booze, cabs….. But haven’t we all done that? How about going home with tales of adventure and new experiences…… places, views, things you conquered, challenges you faced, delicious food you ate and new friend you made?
