We create once-in-a-lifetime experiences for all nature lovers, explorers and modern nomads around the world who are ready to get out of their comfort zone and prepare for a multy-day stay in nature during which they are completely self-sustainable.

HIGHLANDER is a leading long-distance hiking event series in the world with over 40 events in 20 countries worldwide. Unique aspect of HIGHLANDER lies in its concept: IT IS NOT A RACE.

Since mountains, deserts, pastures and other iconic natural locations are our second home, we are constantly striving to educate the HIGHLANDER community regarding sustainability, “Leave No Trace” and ‘’Erase the Trace’’ philosophies, as well as the importance of preserving our planet that we leave for generations to inherit.

You'll see everything – from Scafell Pike - its highest mountain to Wastwater - its deepest lake. At some points, the trail will call on your athletic skill, but if you prepare well and tap into the HIGHLANDER spirit, you can tame it. Although the two formats vary in length, they all share a unique program of activities, from music to yoga and various workshops during which you can interact with others and immerse yourself in the Adventure of a Lifetime.


HIGHLANDER Hercules got its name after the Roman mythological hero adapted from the Greek hero Heracles. It is also the second-largest northern constellation and is simultaneously the longest HIGHLANDER route that spans over 5 days.
On a 94 km long trail through this playground for walkers and outdoor enthusiasts, you will witness iconic viewpoints, astonishing peaks, and starry skies.


The second-largest format is named after a constellation in the northern sky, named after the winged horse Pegasus in Greek mythology. It is easily recognisable because it is dominated by a prominent asterism known as the Great Square.

Enjoy a 51-kilometre-long hiking adventure through this world-famous destination for its beautiful lakes and mountainous fells, carved out long ago by glaciers.
