An exciting new line-up for Rocky Fest 2018 promises to offer an exclusive outdoor-adventure festival in the beautiful Lesotho mountains for mountain bikers, trail runners and hikers alike!

The fourth consecutive Rocky Festival will take place at Afriski Mountain Resort in the northern Lesotho highlands from 23 to 25 February 2018. In conjunction with Helly Hansen, Hoka One One, Rocky Mountain, Motorex, EVOC and PURE Nutrition it promises to be an event not to be missed!

Not only will this weekend offer opportunities to experience the beautiful Lesotho outdoors via multiple sporting disciplines but is all about taking a step back from the yearly competitive side of outdoor sports and focuses on the fun and social side of our outdoor-adventure passions. Those moments that make you feel alive, moments shared with great friends, making new ones and experiencing nature the way only Lesotho can offer.

The weekend kicks off in the beautiful Lesotho lowlands with an option of a run, ride or hike before the fun continues at the well-known AfriSki Mountain Resort where the rest of the weekend will take flight. Welcomed by friendly staff at the Sky Restaurant, a well-deserved ice cold, crafted beer or the seductive aroma of a warm cup of coffee will make you feel right at home. The weekend will include all that the resort has to offer; exclusive ski slope access, a wide variety of fresh single tracks to bike hike and run on until your heart’s content as well as a mountain range that boasts the most pristine views. Relax into the evening with sundowners and bonfires on the ridge.

Experiencing the mountains has never been more pleasant and exciting than this!
