Swedish Arctic Survival Adventure

Swedish Arctic Survival Adventure is a trip of a life time to the winter wonderland of Swedish lapland. This trip will take place near Kiruna which is situated within the Arctic circle making it a hotspot for Northern light sightings.  Kiruna is the northernmost town in Sweden it is 90 miles north of the arctic circle boundary  its also home of the Sami people who have occupied the region for many past years. The Scenery is stunning and there is a great variety of wildlife in the region to keep an eye out for.

On our visit we will be fully immersing ourselves into the beautiful winter landscape. Our cabin is situated outside of the town in true wilderness next to the rivers edge and surrounded by Northern forest.  Here is what we will be getting up to on this adventure

Course programme

Sunday  19th Jan

Travelling to Kiruna, an evening meal will be enjoyed together at our cabin and we will prepare and discuss the week ahead

Monday

The week will start off with a wander around camp to explore the beautiful scenery. We will then practice fire lighting skills in a cold climate and tackle the issues that people face when making fire in Northern forest conditions.  As it gets dark we will head off on our Dog sledding experience. Fingers crossed for a clear night so we can experience the guided trip through the stunning scenery  under the natural wonder of the beautiful northern light show

Tuesday

Today will be our Snow Shoe trek in the Boreal forest, we will explore the hills and forest in the region which will give us a great view over the Torne River valley. In this area there are wild animals and traces of moose, reindeer, foxes and hares. If we’re lucky we might see traces of lynx and wolverines. We will stop for a lunch break , get a fire going and take in the beautiful scenery . When we get back to camp we will begin to start work on our snow holes

Wednesday

Today will be all about the snow holes. We will have made a big enough pile of snow from the night before to begin shaping and hollowing out the shelters. When made well snow holes can be comfortable and surprisingly warm we will be outside for the duration of the day completing this. We will spend the evening cooking our evening meals around the campfire and settling into our shelters for the evening

Thursday

On Thursday we can try our luck at some ice hole fishing on the river near our cabin and take some time to observe any wildlife and tracks in the area  that we may come across. We will also be delivering sessions on signalling and rescue techniques and essential survival skills in cold environments

Friday

Friday will be your day to do as you wish. You can explore the local area, relax or head into Kiruna town itself to explore more exciting activities. We will enjoy a final evening meal together in the cabin and share stories of the week

Saturday

Unfortunately it will be time to head home.  We will be leaving the beautiful landscape together and begin our journey back home with fond memories and stories to tell for many future years
