A family adventure at 3 days in Kolarbyn with exciting animals, nature and survival theme. We survive today’s modern society by purchasing finished products that we use, but to survive into the woods needed more than that – namely, knowledge and preparation.

During the activity, we learn in a playful way how to make fire with fire steel and what´s good to make fire with, find and purify water, what to eat in the forest, how to build a bivouac and what to do if you get lost in the woods. Let the children come out in a real forest and become comfortable with being in nature. The activity will start in the afternoon and we finish by together make a yummy dinner directly over the fire. After dinner, an exciting night in the charcoal hut waits for you. In all huts, you can light a fire (with your new fire steel, that all children got in the activity) in the stove and fall asleep to the sound of the fire. Next day you prepare your breakfast over the fire and go for a canoe tour on the lake. End the day in our floating sauna and a dip in the lake before dinner with pancakes and jam!

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!
