JACK WOLFSKIN’s WOLFTRAIL campaign sees outdoor and travel influencers explore hiking routes
Oct 12, 2020
The JACK WOLFSKIN WOLFTRAIL, launched this spring with an exclusive trail in the Carpathian mountain ranges, is now entering its next phase. Despite the current situation of limited travel opportunities throughout Europe, Jack Wolfskin hope to inspire their customers to embark on adventures in their own regions. Launching a campaign that’s supported and led by a number of well-known outdoor enthusiasts, prominent on social media. Taking to the trail with their nearest and dearest, each campaign partner shares their route and experiences with their followers, amplified by Jack Wolfskin. The campaign as a whole focuses on JACK WOLFSKIN’S core brand values: hiking with family and friends, outdoor activities and experiencing nature. Each member of the campaign outfitted in JACK WOLFSKIN’s latest seasonal styles including the new INFINITE HIKE Collection.
Melody Harris-Jensbach, CEO of JACK WOLFSKIN: "Our WOLFTRAIL campaign should inspire people to go out into nature. Reminding them that they don't have to travel far for this to be a possibility with hiking adventures possible from their own doorstep. With our WOLFTRAIL campaign we are once again focusing on the younger generations motivating them to make new discoveries despite the limited travel options and to experience hiking as a transformative experience that reconnects us with nature.”

THE WOLFTRAIL CAMPAIGN
With WOLFTRAIL, JACK WOLFSKIN is once again focusing on its brand values, hiking with friends and family. The campaign aims to encourage people to go out into nature and experience it together. The WOLFTRAIL adventure was launched at the beginning of the year with the unique long-distance hiking experience in the Romanian Carpathians. To this end, JACK WOLFSKIN and its long-standing partners ASI Reisen and Carpathia have developed the first exclusive long-distance hiking trail. Since long-distance travel is currently only possible to a limited extent, the focus is now on local hiking following the long-distance hike in Romania. The new WOLFTRAIL campaign aims to create awareness of local nature and sustainable travel without long journeys. It encourages viewers to go out together and explore the local Environment.
