' Going to the Mountains is going home.' John Muir
Imagine- your feet on a wild mountain trail breathing in fresh oxygen and beauty that come in the form of views, sounds and smells.. walking through the majesty of the wild mountain lakes and grandiose landscape when, after a long day outside you sleep in a secluded and authentic mountain hut.
Welcome to 3 day trekking and nature experience in the Lower Engadin, Switzerland.
Designed for the medium level hikers and anyone who would like to discover mountain in a safe but wild environment. Every day you will hike for 4-5 hours with a stable pace, taking time for being, immersing into incredible views and enjoying group spirit.
During this trek I invite you to explore mountain as your home- in different aspects of it. Literally and spiritually. Staying in one of my favorite and non-attended huts in Swtizerland, will offer you an opportunity to experience real swiss mountain life authenticity as well as wild nature at its best.

Ruta has done her first hike back in 2013- she then realized that the real life is not happening in the indoor- office environment but rather outside.
This made her realize that she was missing something important in her life- connection with Nature. Since then, most of her time she spends outside- climbing, hiking, wild camping, walking in the forests, parks and other natural places. She has become hiking ‚guru‘ and is now passionate to share the most beautiful places in the Swiss Alps with the others. During her outings she invites participants to experience nature differently: through mindfulness, nature connection practices & human element.
Retreat participants often say that Ruta's passion for Nature is contagious.
Ruta is a professional mountain leader ( Association of Mountain Guides in Switzerland), neuro-coach (Neuroleadership Institute, London), and forest therapy guide (Association of Nature and Forest Therapy, USA).
By creating Be Outside Coaching movement, she has connected her 2 major passions: activities outside and human development. Be Outside Coaching delivers immersive and holistic Nature experiences in the different corners of the Swiss Alps.
Be Outside. Be Authentic. Be You
' There is yet another way to be, to see , to feel, to lead.
You will never hike the same way again after experiencing this.' Be Outside Coaching
