Strawberry Moon Hike June 2021
Join our exciting June Full Moon Hike on Friday, June, 25th 2021, one hour away from Jeddah. The upcoming Full Moon, the Strawberry Full Moon, is happening Thursday 24th but we will hike Friday night instead. We encourage you to watch the sky on Thursday tough!
By the way, the name “Strawberry Moon” is thought to have been first used by the Algonquin tribes of North America, due to the relatively short season for harvesting strawberries. Also, the full moon nearest the summer solstice “shines through more atmosphere than at other times of the year, making it more likely to have a reddish color.
Two groups will hike about one hour away from Jeddah with different distances and paces: Beginners and more advanced hikers are welcome to take part! Last month, as all of us were recovering from overindulging during the Holy Month of Ramadan and from an Eid Holiday, we had an easy hike. It will be tougher this month!
- Group 1: 7.5km
- Group 2: 11km
