For three days you will have an outdoor / survival course where we guide you in nature to various exciting and educational events. You will, with the help of a professional guide conquer new and exciting knowledge to be able to survive all by yourself in the woods.

You have just picked the last mushroom in a fantastic area in the woods. You feel excited about your full basket of all nature’s gift. 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 find me? 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. 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; survival psychology & physique, making fire, safe handling of edge tools, finding water, finding food and building shelter.

The first night is a “normal” night in Kolarbyn so you’ll be ready to start the course on day 2 at 10.00. 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. In the evening we gather at the campsite in Kolarbyn and together we prepare a wilderness dinner. We sleep in charcoal huts but you can also choose to sleep inside your self-made bivouac (during the second night). Before we say goodbye; the course ends with us summarizing what we covered during our days together.

The second stay at Kolarbyn and we are pleased also this time. Everyone should experience at least one night in Kolarbyn! I write it reluctantly, because I would like to have it all to myself! The breakfast was worth every penny!
