Helicopter expedition

The Arctic Expedition starts with a helicopter dropping.
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.

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