Highpointing

Highpointing is about summiting all the highest points within a certain area. For example, summiting the highest peak in every European country. Or on every continent – even Seven Summits is highpointing! Or something on a smaller scale, like all the highest points in every municipality in your county. Or all the counties. Or what I’m planning to do – the highest point in every province in Sweden. The reason I chose the provinces instead of counties is that a county seems to be a fluid unit. Counties have merged in the past and even now there’s talk about merging them even more. The provinces are set in history, and I think they make a nice manageable project. Not too few to be easy, not too many to feel impossible!
