The Haglöfs Scholarship

CHOOSE YOUR ADVENTURE
The Haglöfs Scholarship 2017: helping you take the trip of a lifetime
 

What makes an adventure?
Reaching the summit of a high mountain. Paddling the length of a whitewater river. Ski touring over untouched terrain, or trekking to a remote village in a country that you’re visiting for the first time.

At Haglöfs, we define an adventure as an exciting and unusual experience. We understand that these begin when we explore unknown corners of the world and experience the sublime beauty of nature.

We also believe that adventures have to be sustainable. We all need to take responsibility and care in what we do, so that we’re able to continue enjoying the exciting opportunities that our environment provides.

We think that these ideas are worth promoting, and we want to help you to begin your own journey. So, we’ve developed the Haglöfs Scholarship: an international financial incentive that is intended to support and promote unique and sustainable outdoor adventures.

He will start his travels from his home country Belgium and end in his root country Greece, exploring and documenting the different kinds of beauty that the European continent offers. Hiking in the midnight sun, sleeping under the stars and, most importantly, be one with nature are some of the goals with his trip, and at Haglöfs we would love to be a part of his adventure."
