Remember Victor Kayem, A.K.A. @Vixoo7 on Instagram ? In summer, we followed him on some of his epic “Vanlife” roadtrips. Mountain biker, Volkswagen camper and adventurer, Victor is always looking for new trails and new adventures. And now that winter has taken over Lebanon, he and his fellows from the Akkar trail team’s path took them to the beautiful mountains of Akkar where it was all about snow hikes and building igloos for the night…
FOUR FRIENDS, ONE PASSION
For Victor and friends Charbel, Samer and Nabih, it is all about escaping the routine and discovering the hidden beauties of the Lebanese nature and outdoors. Whenever they can, they hop on Victor’s VW’s van and wander the roads of Lebanon, in search of new spots to hike and discover. And they always share their experiences with us through photos and videos of breathtaking landscapes, show us relentlessly that Lebanon has a lot to offer.

LET’S SPEND THE NIGHT IN… AN IGLOO
Their latest advendure, just a few days ago, took them to the deep mountains of beautiful Akkar in the North, peacefully covered in a blanket of snow. So, what would 4 advendurers do with so much snow ? Build an igloo for the night, of course !
Besides hiking for over 2 hours to find the right spot, the four young men worked hard for over 4 hours to build their “icy palace” for the night, designing and cutting block of dry and hard-packed snow to create their structure. And don’t be fooled, the adventurers are well-organized and each knows his task, whether is the shoveling, the overlapping or the smoothing of the blocks.
Let’s discover their unusual experience in images…
