About us

The Students' Hiking Club is an organisation created for and by young people and students with a common interest in outdoor life. The activities are adapted for students' conditions - that means cheap trips that are synchronized with the university calender.

From member to member

The basic idea is that all trips are created by the members. All members have the opportunity to make their inner wish come true. The planning of a trip is done together with all the participants for the upcoming trip, initiated by a member's initiative posted on the calendar on this home page. Experienced hikers and beginners all enjoy the beauty of the nature, and together we teach eachother, develop our skills and get inspiration.

Club Evenings and home page

The contact between members takes place at Club Evenings and on this home page. The Club Evenings can have different themes; it can be photos from trips or an experienced member coming by to give information about trips. The Club Evenings are announced in the Calendar, just like all other activities. There's also a photo gallery, list of members and more.

Copenhagen and the rest of the country

The main club and most of our members are located in Copenhagen, but there are also members and activities in Aarhus and the rest of Denmark.

Excerpts from trip stories

Luxury trip

Saturday morning the sun was shining on a cloud free sky when we met in the train that was going towards Helsingør. The weather forecast promised clear skies and wind, and a rainy Sunday. Apparantly, the meteorologist were not aware of the six members of The Students Hiking Club, who were on their way to Hallandsåsen, in the south of Sweden. Otherwise they would have promised single clouds, sun and starry nights. Because that is the way the weather always is, when members of The Students Hiking Club go on an Easter trip in Skåne!

Saltholm

Saltholm is an island and a nature reserve off the coast of Copenhagen. The only real path on the island is the gravel road that goes from the quay to the south located Saltholm Batteri. Therefore, we had to follow anything that could help us navigate, like small hills, areas with trees, and the windmill at Hollænderbrønd.

Skiing in Jotunheimen

To the summits of Jotunheimen

After a one week glacier course at the Jostedalsbræen (the largest glacier in Norway), we headed towards Jotunheimen (the most alpine area in Norway), where we were to meet up with Kåre and ascended a couple of 2000m peaks.
