The ultimate weekend of adventure in nature’s greatest playground
Introducing The North Face® Mountain Festival, set in Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland, at the foot of one of the most iconic mountains in the Alps, the Eiger, from 16 – 18th September 2016.
Join likeminded modern day adventurers for a unique opportunity to taste and trial the delights of day to day outdoor living in a breath-taking natural setting. From running mountainous trails, to following a pro athlete up a rock-face, learning gourmet expedition cookery or simply sharing tales of extreme adventure around a campfire, there will be something for everyone.
The festival caters for all levels from novice to advance with both introductory and challenging, hikes, trail runs and climbs in stunning scenic surroundings, led by The North Face® professional athlete team. The festival is designed to equip you with all the skills and knowledge needed to become an avid adventurer, with expert mountain guides and athletes on hand providing basecamp workshops and talks including inspiring stories of exploration, epic outdoor cinema, adventure photography and expedition kit prep. For the brave and intrepid there will be the chance to experience paragliding or rafting, and even attempt to summit the Eiger alongside one of the The North Face® athletes.
By nightfall, festival goers will be able to eat and dance under the stars with some un-missable live music, outdoor cinema screening, and fresh local meals set in a geodesic banqueting hall. Like all good festivals, there is the chance to indulge completely and kickback & recuperate at the in-forest spa, offering a range of relaxing activities.
Earlybird tickets are available now for €99 which includes a camping spot in the awe-inspiring basecamp location – for tickets and further information, visit: thenorthface.com/mountain-festival.
