THE FESTIVAL

The Lebanon Highline and Adventure Festival

HIGHLINING  |  CLIMBING  |  PARAGLIDING  |  YOGA | ACROYOGA

Last year, we hosted the first ever international highline and adventure sport festival in Lebanon. Now we’re back in May to do it all again. Our goal is to bring together a vibrant crew of international adventure athletes to experience the Middle East first-hand and to use our sports to connect people across cultural and political divides.

We’ll have at least 8 highlines, from 30m to 240m long, rigged by a professional team of dedicated riggers. Basic slacklines will be set up on the grounds near the highlines as well, and workshops will be held each day for yoga, acroyoga, meditation, and more (specific topics depend on the teachers available).

Come climb, walk highlines, fly off cliffs, lift each other up and share your passions with a multi-sport and international community.

The bigger picture: Crossing Lines in Lebanon

Adventure sports and the refugee crisis

Since 2017, Crossing Lines teams have been working with refugee youth in Lebanon teaching kids and teens to slackline as a way to help with social and behavioral development, education, and psychosocial support.

Lebanon hosts more refugees per capita than any other country, and the economic and social strain is great. Slacklining and other movement arts have a natural ability to bring people together, to inspire hope, and to help us learn about ourselves and others.

LHAF brings people together from around the world to connect with each other and to experience the Middle East first hand. The event also supports both the local slackline community, and Crossing Lines Lebanon.

Our mission is to change perspectives about refugees and immigrants, to reduce fear, and to grow a healthy community across cultures.
