Hi Hi Hiking
Hiking ‘Tis Season
The festive season is upon us and 2020 is almost at an end. It is a year which many of us never want to remember, lives and jobs were lost but nature restored. The hiking industry exploded and the trails were flooded with new and old hikers.
We here at Fagala Voet want to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Please drive safe to your holiday destinations and be safe on the trails.
Happy Hiking and see you on the trails

Fagala Voet will be hiking the Giant’s Cup hiking trail in March 2021 and we needed some professional help with the eating habits on, off and during the hiking trail. We have been getting many e-mails asking us: “what should one
eat and pack on a multiday hike?” So we decided to seek some advise and share some eating plans, products, tips and tricks.
