Hi there!

Hi there!

I'm Deen and together with Alette, I created Hikaholics. As long as I can remember you can find me in the mountains and playing outside.
I conquered my fear of heights while mountaineering, am always up to date on the newest gear and am the happiest person alive when I can make a campfire. My ultimate goal? Hiking the PCT!

Nice to meet you!

Nice to meet you!

I'm Alette, co-founder of Hikaholics and an extreme outdoor enthusiast. I fell in love with hiking when I went through some though times in my life. Nature gave me the peace of mind I needed. Hiking got me addicted and I never stopped ever since. You can find me in the meadows, hiking long distances anywhere on earth and packing for our next (micro) adventures.

Back to 2016...

Since 2016 we are a couple. We knew about each others love for travelling, but never really explored the outdoors together until our first roadtrip.


This camping road trip through France changed everything. We hiked together in the Pyrenees and we never stopped hiking ever since. During this hiking trip the idea of Hikaholics started, because we believe everybody is a Hikaholics in a sense.


That's why we combined our content creating passion (blogging, photo- and video graphing) with our passion for the outdoors. This way, we can share our love for nature.
