Thru-Hiking Sweden's 800+ Mile Gröna Bandet


By Mekenna Malan | March 10th, 2022

Last summer, Utah-based hiker (and previous GEAR:30 employee) Bryden Bowley set out to thru-hike Sweden's Gröna Bandet, an 808-mile trek to the northernmost border of Sweden, Norway, and Finland. On September 20th, he became the third American to ever complete the route.

Watch Bryden's film on the thru-hike below, and keep an eye out for the eight-part "Day In the Life" mini-series that GEAR:30 will be releasing in partnership with him this spring.
