THE HIKE SOCIETY
Columbia Hike Society
The Columbia Hike Society is a vibrant community of outdoor enthusiasts brought together by their shared love for hiking and exploring nature. As a part of the Columbia Hike Society, we provide unforgettable adventures and opportunities for meaningful connections. Join us as we venture out to uncover new trails, build lasting friendships and fully immerse ourselves in the wonders of the natural world.

In this new series of events, the Columbia Hike Society has collaborated with nature-loving content creators and active collectives and communities. Together, we present immersive hiking experiences throughout the UK. Whether you're drawn to the majestic landscapes of the Peak District, the enchanting scenery of Snowdonia, or the picturesque coastal trails of Wales, there's an adventure waiting just for you.

So, gear up by lacing your hiking boots and packing your backpack, and come along to explore the breathtaking landscapes and hidden treasures of the United Kingdom with us. The Columbia Hike Society guarantees unforgettable moments in nature, where sharing and discovery are at the heart of every experience.
Columbia Hike Society is inviting you to get lost in the music – quite literally.
Introducing HikeFest, a new festival of hiking, with a difference. The community is hosting an off-grid gig which requires hikers to climb deep into the Snowdonia mountains before reaching a natural amphitheatre where an intimate, acoustic gig will take place.

The experience will see two up-and-coming artists perform an open-air set out in the wild.
The event is hosted in partnership with Sofar Sounds. The hiking community and global music movement have joined forces in a bid to showcase the connection of music and the great outdoors.

Located in the wilderness, the location is a place where phone signal begins to falter. The event’s aim is to encourage attendees to put their phones down and connect with the music and the natural world around them.
