- The Expedition will last for 8 days.
- Deposit – £395 – Full Price – £995
- Instalment payments available on request.
Travel from the UK to Sweden, flights included.
Safety brief and cross country ski day to acclimatise, no previous ski experience necessary.
Travel to the lake and have a days ice fishing, eating what you catch, and if you don’t catch anything we will lay on a hot lunch as well.
Safe cutting techniques and fire lighting skills honed prior your departure into the field before the Bushcraft phase. You would be amazed how difficult some of the most basic bushcraft techniques are affected by cold weather, frozen wood and axe handling skills etc.
Ski to location and erect tipi and establish camp for the night.
Natural shelter building day, this is your opportunity to build whatever type of natural shelter that suits your needs.
Snow hole/quinzee day. This is a fantastic day learning how to build a quinzee and there is more science behind it than you think, plus the added bonus of sleeping in it for the night.
After the night in the quinzee, we head back to the cabin where you can either relax or head out for another ski, or take a snowshoe trip, or even carry on practicing the skills that you have learnt over the week. The hot tub will be lit and so will the sauna, so you can get cleaned up and in the evening a BBQ to feast on.
Unfortunately it is time to head back to the UK.
