Sleeping below heaven's tent


You always wanted to sleep outside, below heaven's tent? You never had the courage to do so? You are not alone!

Sleeping outside, unprotected in the darkness, perhaps staying overnight in the woods* - this idea creates a lot of discomfort or anxiety. Everybody has these feelings, regardless of age and gender. Rational or irrational dangers - our mental cinema runs at full speed.

Think twice! This is actually the ultimate freedom for hiking or trekking. You can walk as far as you want and you can stay overnight at a nice place in nature*. You do not have to follow daily targets in order to reach booked hotels or you do not have to stress yourself by organizing it along your way. Watch out! Sleeping outside is not permitted everywhere and you also have to take some precautions for your own safety.

After a short walk from the parking lot we will reach our camp site in the woods*. We will set up our tarps and sleeping places and we will collect some firewood. Then we will gently prepare our overnight adventure. At the camp fire* we will talk about expectations, fears and mental barriers. We will talk about the sounds of nature. We will listen to some fairy tales. After dinner and sunset you will experience, how to sleep in the woods, protected by the group and taken care of by the guide around you. 2 persons will share a tarp. If you wish you can even do cowboy camping, directly below heaven's tent. May be we are lucky and have a clear sky for stargazing.

I am looking forward to seeing your shining eyes the next morning. I am looking forward to listening to your personal story of this adventure. You will be incredibly proud of yourself, now that you have accomplished your first successful overnighter. Outside - in the woods.

  • Courage to leave your comfort zone and challenge your limits 
  • Condition and mobility to walk around 30-40 minutes from the parking lot to the camp. The terrain to the camp is unpaved and slightly uphill. We will walk slow, speed is not our goal.
