Our tips for traveling light

Space-saving and lightweight packing is a fundamental skill for any globetrotter.

CAMPING IN GERMANY

More openings are in sight and it's time to plan the first trips outdoors. If you want to spend a night at a campsite in beautiful surroundings in Germany without being woken up by slamming car doors or motorhome generators, only to find that the first thing you see is a wall of caravans, it's not so easy.

ROADTRIP - THE MOTORCYCLE BAGS

The next step: we set about developing the bags motorcycle bags.

ROADTRIP - THE MOTORCYCLES

It's time to reveal the secret: as we already announced in the first post(HEIMPLANET Roadtrip - The Preparation) about our road trip, we are on the road with motorbikes.

ROAD TRIP - THE PREPARATION

Every journey requires good preparation, especially if a road trip is planned - what do you take with you, what stays at home & what do you really need on the road?

ON PILGRIMAGE IN EASTERN TIBET

The still unclimbed "Khawa Karpo" is one of the "eight holy mountains of Tibet".

THE CAVE GOES WEST

Individual travel and being on the road simply never gets boring. Especially when travelling the fascinating and breathtaking West of the United States of America, which is literally bursting with epic natural monuments.

2 TENTS, 3 DAYS, 4 BIKES AND A LOT OF CONCRETE

As summer drew to a close and temperatures began to drop, the forecast for this weekend looked surprisingly good, even for northern Europe.

TABERNAS DESERT

The Tabernas desert is located in the south of Spain, 40 km north of Almeria. Almeria is known for its greenhouses that supply all of Europe with fruit and vegetables every season. This is made possible by the unusual climatic conditions in the region.

LIVE NOW

It's always hard to leave home, but once you do and you're out of your sweet, cushioned comfort zone, you come alive.

ATLANTIC DIVERSIONS

I grew up with an atlas in my hand. A globe on the shelf. Friends who travelled, stories of safaris in Zimbabwe, friends who went through the Berlin Wall, Māori hunting weapons hanging in the hallways.

MARKUS REMPE

For me, there are two different types of trips around the globe when I am away from home. The first type is work- or project-related trips like my three-week trip to Mauritius in March this year.

DEEPER TORDRILLOS

I've always liked the simplicity of Hiking Lines. No helicopter noise, first-hand impressions of the snow conditions on the slopes and - above all - the satisfaction of having earned your turns are simply priceless.

HORACE AND THE ROUGH STUFF FELLOWSHIP

What are we itching for? Are we itching to go out and seek the unknown? What makes us want to leave everything behind?

MY FIRST MEMORIES OF TRAVEL

My first memories of "travelling" were the early hours of the morning in Terminal 2 waiting to board our flight to our family in England. My parents' memory of travelling was a jet-lagged 3-year-old playing video games for 22 hours and then hearing about it for a week.

CURVES AND TURNS

Nowadays everything is getting faster and faster. This project was an experiment to slow down life, or rather, to find a way to go slow and enjoy travelling to the fullest.

THE WEST FJORDS IN ICELAND

We landed early and drifted through the airport to the waiting car. The most unsuitable car for boards, tents, cameras and Icelandic roads.

HEADACHE FILM

You know that feeling when you crave a refreshing drink or ice cream on a hot day because of the burning sun, then finally get one and take a big gulp or bite, but realise at the same moment that it was way too much?

WHAT TRAVEL REALLY MEANS

I love to travel. But what does "travel" really mean? For me, there is no right or wrong answer. Every journey consists of discoveries, encounters, the desire to immerse oneself in cultures, customs and people that are completely different from us. When you travel, you get to know others and through others, you get to know yourself.

MORE THAN JUST PARKS

For some, Joshua Tree National Park is a haven, for others it is a playground of ancient boulders and endless desert, and for still others it is simply a place of wonder and natural beauty. But in reality it is all that and much more.

BAJA - OFF THE BEATEN TRACK

Baja off the beaten track is not a place for everyone. Chapped lips, dusty hair, weeks of not showering, wind, dirt, sand. The dirt blows in your face, in your ears and in your eyes. Did I say wind?

DO NOT FOLLOW THIS BIKE

A video and a blog post every week, plus a picture a day on his Instagram account. This is how Atila publishes his journey through New Zealand.

BALTIC LONG ROAD LONG WAY HOME

It all started with my old GDR moped "Schwalbe" from 1984 from East Germany, which I have owned for over 10 years and decided to restore the engine and actually everything under the bonnet.

RED BULL STORM CHASE

Heimplanet, the German start-up from Hamburg known for The Cave tent, is an official partner of the Red Bull Storm Chase 2012.

EXPLORING THE WESTERN USA

I've been waiting for this call for weeks, almost months, and then finally my phone rings. Oliver, one of my best friends with whom I have spent a lot of time over the last few years, told me that we can finally put our plans to explore the western USA into action.

THE ROOF OF THE PACIFIC: THE EASTERN SIERRAS

I have always found driving a car to be a cathartic experience. As a filmmaker, I often find myself living in my own head, trying to come up with a story arc over breakfast, discovering characters' motivations in the shower, or dreaming up scenarios at night.

SUP AROUND THE WORLD

The best thing about travelling with a Stand Up Paddle Board is that just by getting around with such a simple means of transport, you are suddenly able to make real contacts with the locals anywhere in the world.

YOU WILL REMEMBER - ICELAND

Death is the cautionary maelstrom of cold. Ice and bitter ocean that crunches and flows. Many associate darkness with morbid thoughts and a depressing life.

RAD RACE x AURORA TOUR D'ICELAND

With RAD TRAVELS we have fulfilled a dream: To travel the world. On our bikes. Because in our strange way of life, the ideal of happiness includes a bicycle and a few friends. That's basically all we need.

CABEIBUSHA - THE CURLY GEM

Sarah-Quita Offringa is 23 years old and already a 9-time windsurfing world champion. "Cabeibusha - the Curly Gem" is a documentary/video portrait of Sarah-Quita Offringa, produced by German filmmaker Julian Robinet.

ABOUT ADVENTURE AND RISK

We live in a world where more and more people are looking for adventure every day. And why? As humans, we were nomads for tens of thousands of years.

THE 4WD TENT - ROBS T3 SYNCRO

It must have been around 1991 when I sat in a VW T3 for the first time. After my mother died, I grew up in an orphanage and there we had two of these white VWT3 vans that we drove around in.

CHASING WAVES

Heart and home. Water and waves play an essential role in Morgan Maassen's life. In 2015, he spent more than 300 days travelling around the globe - and despite his young age, the 26-year-old has already experienced a lot.

ANOTHER (SUCCESSFUL?) ICELANDIC STORY

How do you tell about an adventure that did not end as you had imagined? Do you acknowledge the mistake or do you leave everything to external circumstances?

BIKE RACE- POSTAGE TO BORDEAUX

Tour de Scandinavia. Tour D'Iceland. Tour d'Espana. Tour D'Italia. And now from Porto to Bordeaux. 9 stages. 1,400 kilometres and 24,000 metres of altitude. 17 friends.

8 MONTHS ON THE RUN

The last eight months have been quite a ride. In October 2016, we left Austria and made our way to Nepal. We didn't know how long we would stay. We only knew that we were in no hurry.

ICELANDIC SUMMER

Iceland is a place that is as beautiful & otherworldly as it is bleak and bitter.

SYNCRONICLES III

Welcome to the stage aka social media: the perfect life! Insta-feeds are synonymous with the life of the dream - everyone is always on holiday, always on the go, always on the move.

BINSURFING IRELAND TRIP

Loading seven surfboards onto an old Toyota Landcruiser and driving around Ireland for a few weeks to find waves. That sounds like an enjoyable trip!

HEIMPLANET IN THE ANTARCTIC

HEIMPLANET recently collaborated with New Zealand scientists to support their research on climate change in Antarctica. But how do you protect sensitive scientific instruments in the harshest environment on earth? With the strongest tent in the world - the MAVERICKS!
