what to look forward to 

Together with a group you’ll hike for 2 days, the hikes will be short, especially day 1. We will take time to learn, share and have fun as well as prepare a camp. For those who are hungry to hike more, we may do a sunset hike after installing the camp.

Not only learning but also- walking, connecting with nature and group, breath taking views and mindfulness practices will allow you to come back to yourself.

Meet Experience creator- Ruta

Ruta mountain - Copy.jpg

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.

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.
