  • E1 from Konstanz!
  • Hi all!
    Im hoping to get some advice on acomodation for my trip through the alps on E1 inay June.
    I've seen some poeple on forums say that 'free camping' is not allowed but is widely accepted in alpine areas. Im doing this on a tight budget so if this is possible i'd prefer to free camp also. Do you think this is possible?

  • planning and reaources
  • I'm looking at planning a long distance hike along for 2017
    E9 Plymouth to Hoek van Holland
    E8 Hoek Van Holland to Limburg
    E1 Limburg to Palermo

    But there seems to be next to no resources available unlike all the long distance trails in the united states. and website I have found main through this site. Google translate is doing a terrible job of translating.

    Does anyone know any better resources for these sections. List of maps, guides or anything else of use.

  • Emergency Situations...
  • Hi All!

    I will be hiking the E1 solo from Nordkapp down to Germany from June this year.

    If anyone here has undertaken the northern sections of this walk (eg. Nordkapp through to the Swedish sections), can you please try to give me an idea of what to expect? How cold might it get during June/July - any "extremes" like -20 degrees, etc.? How many days between towns (or stores)?

    Also, would it be best to purchase a satellite phone, purely in case of emergency? Would an epirb be better? Or will a simple cell phone be sufficient?

    Any advice or suggestions would be really greatly appreciated - the E1 seems to be a very difficult subject to find much information on!

    Thank you!

    • Hi!

      I hope you got your answers and are now having a great time in Norway. If you are keeping a blog I would like to read it, since I'm thinking about doing this trail also. How is it? What do you eat? What did you pack? Are the nights really could? Etc...
      It indeed seems difficult to find concrete information about it!

      Wish you all the best of luck!!

      Greetings Roland (the Netherlands)

  • Brussels - North Cape
  • Hi!

    My boyfriend and I are planning to go from Brussels to North Cape. We are thinking of taking the E2 first, then the E9 and join the E1 in Denmark.

    How long do you think it would take to walk to North Cape (considering that it will be winter at a time). And, given the climate, do you have any idea of ​​the best time to go?

    Thanks in advance
