We have a great community of fans and followers and are committed to delivering amazing content that enhances people’s enjoyment of the outdoors and helps our community thrive.

What are we looking for:

We’d be looking for a blog of approximately 500 words or a video to share with our community on your expert topic.

If you’re interested in blogging for us then please bear in mind what we’re looking for:

Authority: Berghaus are a technical, credible brand and we are looking for content that reinforces this position on any outdoors subject and we want our bloggers to be experts in their field.

Unique: Content must be unique.  It can’t be recycled from elsewhere on the web and if you are writing on a subject where content already exists think about how you can make it unique for our audience.

Engaging: We’re looking for content that people not only want to read but share – the best sign of their enjoyment of the content.

Trust: We want our expert blogs to be of the highest standard so you must be knowledgeable of the subject you choose to write.

Your content and link on the website of one of the leading global outdoor brands

Promotion through our social media channels where appropriate:
