Standing on a mountain with sweeping panoramic views. Swimming in a river twisting through lush valleys.  Savouring a beer in an alpine hut with razor-sharp peaks all around.

All good in their own right, infinitely better after strapping on some hiking boots and putting in the hours to get there. Heavy breathing and aching muscles, signals that you’ve earnt this moment in time.

And what a moment it is. The stillness, the fresh air, the feeling of adventure and knowing there’s a hot shower to get back to at the end of the day.
