Get outdoors while staying indoors.
While your #LOWALOCKDOWN adventures may ease a very small part of our adventurer pain while in lockdown. We have no doubt that you feel like you have an itch you just can't scratch. To give you some further relief, we thought we would compile a list of the most epic adventure films we could, to help you virtually disconnect to some of the most insane locations the world has to offer. To build this list we reached out to our LOWA Pro Team to see what their number one picks were. All of the options are available online with links provided.
Prepare to be inspired and blown away!
Without further ado, the list in no particular order is:

"Don't confuse me with being anything else other than proud. Proud to be a hunter. It's time we stop apologizing for how we get our protein. This is who we are. Unless you’re a small time rancher, small time farmer, a hunter or fishermen... you really have no idea where your food comes from. Most people don’t even think about it. Well, we think about it. ” - Donnie Vincent.
Willie Duley From NZ Hunter also mentioned their epic NZ Hunter Adventures episodes on TVNZ On Demand... Particularly season 5, episode 1 which has hunting, mountaineering & packrafting.
