Arctic Expedition - Lapland

Do you dream about participating in concepts like "Running Wild with Bear Grylls"? Then this expedition will be your cup of tea! During this adventure you will have to find your way back from the desolate wilderness towards civilization!

Explore the raw beauty of Swedish Lapland during wintertime. Travel through untouched snowfields, learn new skills to be able to travel and navigate through the landscape, and sleep in self-made snow shelters while enjoying the northern lights.

We won’t only show you how you can survive in the arctic circle, our guide will make sure that you understand and get skilled in all these arctic survival techniques.

You will be dropped in the middle of the wild nature at an unknown location. As part of the escape the wild series, you will need to find your way out towards civilization. "Improvise, adapt & overcome"

In order to move across the snowfields, we will need to work together. We sleep in self-made snow shelters, we will start our fire with basic tools and will be melting snow for drinking and eating.

To find our way back to the inhabited world, we will teach you how to navigate using only a compass. If all goes well, we will make progress day by day. First without snowshoes, then with snowshoes, and finally, we will feel the efficiency of the skis.

Before and after our Arctic Expedition we will have all the comfort we need in our cabin and hotel stay. Sauna included, we are in Sweden after all ...

Before we embark on this journey, we make sure to give you all the tools and knowledge to get you ready to Get Out There.

You will build your own snow cave to sleep in, create a comfortable fire pit with snow chairs, learn about fire starting in the arctic without lighters, brew arctic pine tea, and so much more.

 

We are droped withouth snowshoes and build up from there. Let's hope we manage to get by.

The navigation is done by compass. And if you are able to manage this, there will be upgrade's allong the way wich give us the needed improvements. Snowshoe's and possibly even ski's for the last day.
