For more than 50 years, The North Face has empowered people to push their boundaries in the outdoors. Today, we are enabling the future of all exploration by celebrating creators, athletes, educators, innovators. Relentless and unexpected explorers—role models who move mountains.
We teamed up with the crew at We Are Explorers, and asked their cohort of adventurer photographers around Australia and New Zealand what their favourite multi-day missions were. Safe to say there's an abundance of options on our little islands, so here are a few that stood out for us. Find the one you’d like to tick off next.
Autumn is well under way, and we're out to celebrate getting out of the office and into the wild. Time to drop the usual routine, and step out onto the trails and into the freedom that comes with a good old mutli-day trek. A time when life feels a little slower, a little more visceral, a little more real. With cooler temperatures, long weekends and school holidays, it's the perfect time to log some serious kilometres. And we're out to make that a little easier for you, with a list of essentials for your next multi-day mission, and a chance to win some gear too.
For over ten years The North Face has operated in Australia and New Zealand, working to bring the global vision of the brand to our local communities here. From the beginning, we have been committed to serving all those who desire to explore. At our core, we believe exploration creates an indelible bond with the outdoors, inspiring people to protect our land and pass these beliefs down to the next generation.
While we are committed to serving all those who desire to explore, we know that women can be under-represented and misrepresented in exploration. We realise the importance of supporting female participation in the outdoors, at both entry and elite levels. We have aspired to do this through our athlete team, our brand team and our community outreach. We want you to meet some of the driven female athletes and adventurers we've been working with, the role models who are set to inspire the next generation of female explorers.
Ahead of a special evening with Sir Chris Bonington live in Sydney at the Cremorne Orpheum, we chat to his son and adventurer Joe Bonington about his life growing up with an eminent mountaineer for a father, and how it has influenced his life and his family today.
