A week in the woods is a collection of long-distance hike reports of a group of friends from Berlin. Our fascination with long-distance hikes was started on Europe’s most famous trail, the West Highland Way in Scotland. We fell in love with wild camping and cooking delicious meals in Trangia pots in the most beautiful places in nature.

That first trip then started a tradition among our group of friends to go on a week-long trip together, every year. We always pack most of the food we need for the week and cook meals together breakfast, lunch and dinner. That might add a little more time to the preparation but there’s nothing better than a hot meal after a long day of hiking with a heavy backpack.
