"Join us. We do not move mountains... We move kids."

"In a team, you are only as strong as the weakest link"

 

Going to the mountains and being surrounded by nature is our way to recharge and reconnect with ourselves. Only a few years ago we could just spontaneously get away and test ourselves. Now that we are MOMS, we carry with us a big bundle of joy and responsibility.

 

For us, the keyword of having a kid is not "sacrifice" as we often hear, but rather "adaptation".

We aim to raise a child that is confident, respectful and caring of nature. Therefore, we want our kids to spend as much time as possible outdoors, in a positive and intelligent way.

 

On this webpage we collect and share our tricks and strategies, challenges and solutions on how we adapted to go hiking or backpacking with our children in an enjoyable and safe way.

We don't pretend to know everything. Just the opposite, we think there is always something to learn and we would love to hear from moms around the world that already faced the challenges we are facing now, such as carrying extra-weight, breastfeeding on the trail in winter...
