Visual identity of 2023 hike

The summer seems to be slipping away, with the days passing faster than in previous years. But worry not, for we have a plan to extend it for you, culminating in a spectacular adventure that will linger in your memories.

Considerable time has elapsed since the last hike, and the world has undergone a transformation beyond recognition. We too have evolved. This year, the traditional May hike has been rescheduled to September, and our destination is no longer just homeward; it's toward the very place where the distant light converges with the edge of the earth. Let's rewind to the beginning. More updates will follow, but we'll share those in due time.

Renowned street artist Tron Karton has woven narratives for each of this year's hiking stops, narratives that every participant is destined to experience firsthand. DUBULTI
“As the bells toll, many shall rise to carry the light homeward.” "SAULES"
“When the sun blazes like coal over the crimson sea, arriving at the first camp you will be!” MĒRSRAGS
“When weariness befalls certain travelers, yet only one horn of the beast is fractured, Mērsrags shall grant respite before the second act.” ROJA
“It's only when less becomes more that you'll triumph in reaching the ultimate outpost on the journey to the edge of the world. Beware of the sand monster!” KOLKASRAGS
“A solitary tower of light gleams at the edge of the earth, ensnared by the sea, like an eternal season of radiance. Many set out to bring the light homeward, but only a handful prevail.”

You can find details about the starting point, destination, and camp locations of the hike in the FAQ section.

Remember, you're entitled to a discount (up to 20%) at Veikals Virsotne for all the equipment you require for your hike.

The time has come to strategize, calculate, and ready yourself for the journey.
