Have you ever wondered what is it like to survive in the wild without the comfort of civilization? How hard is it to get food and water, build a fire, and find your way home safely?
In the dense pine forests outside Stockholm, we teach you how to navigate these obstacles with all the necessary survival strategies.
First, we dive into the fundamentals, such as how to make a fire, build a shelter, and find food and water. We then cover more advanced skills depending on your interests. Learn how to track animals, cross a wild river, or heal with plants. There's no better way to experience life out in the bare wilderness.
At the end of the day, our hard work pays off. We cook a tasty meal on our own fire and sleep in our handmade shelter. In the trees under the Nordic skies, you feel connected to nature like never before.
After two days full of fun and hands-on learning in incredible nature, you gain confidence not only for surviving in the wild but for all sorts of life situations. You see the world with different eyes, knowing the abilities of your own two hands. Situations requiring survival training come without warning. Therefore you will have to be ready and be able to react fast in each of them. You could get lost in the forest, be victim of a collision, trapped in an avalanche, stock in a blizzard or a natural disaster may occur etc.
We are proposing a teaching that will provide you techniques, tools but as well confidence in your knowledge and your abilities to react correctly when a survival situation arise.
