The aim of Wanderkollektiv is to enjoy outdoor activities, discover nature in all of its fascinating beauty and capture these moments in photos. The three all-round outdoor-enthusiastic adventurers Chris, Isa and Stephan want to share their experiences and tours with their readers and motivate them to lace up their own hiking boots and discover the world. It makes no difference whether they want to set off for the sea, head to the mountains or simply go for a walk outside their own front door.
Would you describe yourself as a traditional blog?
“Yes and no! Traditional blog topics are part of Wanderkollektiv (“Hiking Collective”), yet we also want to awaken emotions and feelings with our photos. Wanderkollektiv was created from the joy of nature, mutual experiences and the passion for photography. On the coast, in the forests, or on the mountain – adventure and experiences are available for everyone, no matter where he or she stops and looks! We would like to motivate people to head out the door and discover new areas.
Our motto is: #SeiEinEntdecker (“BeADiscoverer”)”
What to you makes your work with LOWA special?
“The partnership with LOWA is full of variety, and friendly and fair. Like with outdoor sports, being able to rely on a partner is the key to success. We have found this kind of partner 100 percent with LOWA. In addition to outstanding products, we are impressed with the mutual support. LOWA, as one of the leading manufacturers in the mountain and outdoor footwear segment, enables us again and again to put into action our own ideas and projects. Since Wanderkollektiv started, we have stood by LOWA’s side, and we are proud to be a partner of this large brand steeped in tradition and heritage.”
What for you transforms a day outdoors into a true experience?
“We could say, the perfect sunrise with fingers of fog, glowing mountain tops, and fresh-brewed coffee. But it is so much more than that to be a real experience. It is the small moments that show us the power and diversity of nature. No matter if it’s –20 degrees Celsius in the middle of a snowstorm at night or in small rock crevices far away from civilisation. Important for us is to live every moment intensely and that gives us strength for the day to day.”
