A PASSION BECAME A PROJECT
United Mountains of Europe (or UME) was born in the Summer of 2021 out of a-common passion shared by 4 “outdoorers”.
What started as a trip across European Mountains to live, discover and experiment new ways of living adventure soon became a mission to help create the declaration of mountain rights.
Scroll and learn about how UME was born and what it has become.
