Bushcraft & Survival Skills

Bushcraft & Survival Courses in Swedish Lapland

Learn about how to enjoy and to survive the wild in summer or winter conditions.
We offer courses in Bushcraft & Survival for individuals, families and groups. Our courses are based on your own experience, knowledge and preferences, ranging from "basic living in the nature" to more advanced "hard core survival".

You will during your stay in the wilderness, get to learn interesting skills both through theory and practice about what is important to think about while you are out in the wild. What can you do to avoid getting into a dangerous situation? What should one do and prioritize to get out alive?

You also learn practical skills such as how to always successfully start a fire and other useful skills that comes in handy whether it is regarding a survival situation or just to make life comfortable during an outdoor trip.

During the longest course it is also likely that your instructor will put you through different test moments so you can try your new skills in "real-life situations".
