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  it’s 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 river’s edge and surrounded by Northern forest.  Here is what we will be getting up to on this adventure:

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. We will head back to camp and prepare to stay in the heated tent for the night.

Tuesday

The day will begin with breakfast in the cabin. When everyone is ready we will make a start on the snow shelter or Quinzee.  Shovelling snow has never been so much fun. Tonight will be your time to meet the huskies and enjoy the dog sledding ride. You will be in control of driving the dog sled which is an amazing experience, hopefully under the Northern lights

Wednesday

Today will be all about the snow holes. We will have made a big enough pile of snow from the day 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 meals around the campfire and settling into our shelters for the night.

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 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. Today will be the perfect opportunity to visit the Ice hotel at Jukkasjarvi or the traditional Sami camp. We will enjoy a final evening meal together in the cabin and share stories of the week
