Hansen’s Events is a small outfit specializing in exploring that other Hong Kong on foot and bicycle – the aim is to get far away from the shopping centres and skyscrapers which most people believe synonymous with Hong Kong for a true nature experience.
Hansen's Events was founded by Michael Hansen and has been arranging walks and bicycle rides for the YWCA of Hong Kong, The Harvard Club of Hong Kong, the American Women's Association, The Australian Association, The Swedish Chamber of Commerce and other local organizations for almost 10 years. Michael has covered literally thousands of kilometres on and off the trails and footpaths of Hong Kong over the past many years and is looking forward to taking you where few have gone before.
Hansen’s Photo Shoots are easy and leisurely strolls around some of Hong Kong’s most interesting and “photogenic” areas. The aim is to really dive into the subject matter and end up with a collection of photos depicting both known and hidden sides to our small country.
We might spend most of our time roaming the countryside, but we are nevertheless also proud of our Urban Hikes. Other than a history lesson and a glimpse into the daily life of ordinary Hong Kong people, our Urban Hikes are also a way to dive into Hong Kong's darker and less glamourous sides. You will learn a little about murders and murderers, corruption and politics.
In other words, there should be something for everybody. Furthermore, which ever outing takes your fancy, the most important thing is that we all enjoy a great day out, so there will be no looking at the watch but plenty of encouragement.
Wherever possible Hansen's Events make full use of Hong Kong's unrivalled public transportation system, which also adds to the authenticity of your experience. Nonetheless, this being a world city, we can also arrange for participants on Private Events to choose any means of transport they fancy. All you have to do is ask...
Another important feature which gives our outings a very authentic feel is the fact that most break for lunch at a local restaurant. These restaurants are all used to welcoming hikers and cyclists - indeed, some have been opened specifically to cater to passing adventurers...
While many itineraries are described in detail on this webpage, Hansen's Events can customize outings to suit individuals or small groups as a means for you to get as much out of your time in Hong Kong as possible. Let us know where you want to go or what you want to see or do and we will forward you a proposal for a Private Event.
