Fjällräven Classic 2016
Fjällräven Classic 2016 will take place for the 12th time from the 5th to the 11th of August in Lapland, Sweden. The unique trekking experience is following a path of 110 kilometers, from Nikkaluokta to Abisko. The participants will pass the foot of Mt. Kebnekaise, Sweden's highest mountain, alongside green valleys, breathtaking mountains, crystal-clear rivers and high-reaching peaks. Thanks to Fjällräven Classic's preparations and logistical planning, the stunning nature is made accessible for everyone in this exciting trekking week. As official partner of Fjällräven Classic, HANWAG will be on site and accompany the participants on their unique adventure.
Picking the right shoe for Fjällräven Classic: TATRA GTX®
We would recommend TATRA GTX® as the most well-suited footwear for an trekking adventure like Fjällräven Classic. The lightweight and yet stable construction is perfectly suited for versatile use on longer tours. TATRA GTX® is available as the standard model as well as with Wide-, Narrow- or Bunion lasts, and therefore makes it possible for you to find the exact right model for your personal foot shape. Thanks to the waterproof GORE-TEX®-lining, TATRA GTX® will keep your feet dry and warm, even during longer rain falls.
