“Backcountry-Expeditions”

Welcome to my website, a uniquely comprehensive and, above all, independent collection of serious specialist reports, detailed product reviews and high-quality photo documentation on the outdoor sector. Due to its complexity, my website is still desktop-optimized. I don’t chase neutered, fast-moving mobile views, especially not a smartphone. From the beginning of its existence in 2014 up to and including today, this non-profit site is 100% free of annoying pop-ups, misleading links, dubious offers, paid advertising, affiliate systems, and lies anyway. Of course, this also affects my YouTube channel, which has existed since 2020, on which I increasingly reflect the content of this page.

Philosophy

My motto, Backcountry Expeditions, means backcountry discovery trips and stands for both unique adventure trips with an expedition character and a holistically conscious way of life. As a passionate adventurer, I live the radical honesty that nature shows us, and thus stand for sincerity, authenticity, transparency, experience and knowledge. My opinion cannot be bought in principle, is based exclusively on rational facts, idealistic values, self-learned knowledge and my own experiences; I am the exact opposite of a lie-based opportunist. The experiences in my life have shown me that our current, exploitative socio-political system on this planet will not have a healthy future. Out of insight and conviction, I live a primitivist lifestyle and spice up my sustainably practiced nature conservation with an appropriate amount of social criticism.

Tours

From self-sufficient nomadic hiking in the wilderness to adventurous paddling tours to global 4×4 road trips, as a tour guide I organize personally organized adventure tours together with you. For the benefit of sustainable nature conservation and your maximum sense of adventure, exclusively in a small group of a maximum of 6 people. For me it’s not about financial gain, but rather a unique quality of life. Privately with friends, your colleagues, for students, or as part of a social-psychological project; A lot is possible depending on your needs. At your very special request, I can travel exclusively with you alone, i.e. just the two of us, to your personal desired destination! I am not a tour operator in the traditional sense, but basically implement everything that I consider feasible and environmentally conscious.

Reviews

Traveling around the world with all sorts of equipment, I work as a photo reporter and create detailed, 100% independent product reviews. Due to the high demands placed on my expeditions and my belief in true sustainability, I only deal with high-quality outdoor products. Because today’s advertising is almost always opposed to free, independent, i.e. critical reporting, I expressly distance myself from all the opportunistic influencers (advertising hookers), who above all actively contribute to promoting a society of stupid consumer idiots, and thus indirectly for them the progressive destruction of our environment.

Products

Too many people today live quickly and superficially, taking less and less time for the important things in life. Really long stays in remote regions are the exception; they are often limited to more or less short but comfortable vacations. As a result, good suppliers have become just as rare as well-thought-out, tried-and-tested, long-lasting products. Product manipulation to ensure controlled shelf life (planned obsolescence), short-term model changes, questionable Far East productions and, to top it off in PR, the usual sustainability lies predominate. Because I don’t give in to this questionable development, I’ve always taken my path outside the mainstream, and with my tours I still know what’s really important outside, I now have invaluable practical experience. Since 2021, I have also been an independent product developer of high-quality outdoor equipment that has been tested directly in the wilderness and made in Germany.

Help

In today’s world, having to publicly represent an attitude like mine often leaves me with my back against the wall, especially financially. If you like my healthy attitude and honest work, if my informative reports and recommendations for a much more sustainable lifestyle help you, I would be happy about any form of support; Thank you!
