Join us for a three-days outdoor/survival course to learn from nature and our experienced Guide and Instructor. Learn basic wilderness skills that are priceless when a tricky situation occurs out in the wild.
You have just picked the last mushroom in a fantastic area in the woods. You feel excited about your full basket. But then you realize that you don’t recognize the surroundings; you are lost! With only 5% batteries left and no signal on your phone, the panic is starting to rise inside your head. What should I do? Will someone finds me, and when? Can I keep warm if I need to spend the night?
With the help of Bushcraft skills, you can read nature and live off the land when you find yourself in an outdoor survival situation.
During this 3-day course, you’ll learn the basics of Bushcraft and Survival in a northern boreal environment. You’ll be experiencing the magic woods of Bergslagen Sweden together with our skilled Instructor and Guide Jonas Landolsi from Jonas Vildmark Bushcraftcenter.
In today’s modern society we mostly rely on services and ready-produced products. But to handle a potential survival situation you might need to rely only on your own skills and mindset. Together we’ll be covering subjects like; fire making, handling edge tools like knife, axe and saw, gear, navigation by nature’s signs, survival psychology & physique, building shelters, managing water, usable plants, fields like sloyd and wilderness safety.
The learning starts on arrival at Kolarbyn Day 1. Fire and gear are to be prepared for spending the first night inside one of Kolarbyn’s forest huts. Day 2 at 10.00, just after breakfast, the Instructor will join you. The course ends on Day 3 after our breakfast. Leave your stress back home to be able to take in the magic of the Swedish nature.
