Testimonial

Testimonial

“Five strangers became true friends, growing day after day a strong and meaningful bond. That’s something very valuable and normally very rare, but maybe it’s just what normally happens when you share so many little daily things and great experiences in the wild. “- Pietro Montanino, Italy

Highlights

Highlights

One week is not enough to learn nature’s clock. In three weeks, you will form close bonds with nature and the small group around you. You will learn what it is like to be in a pathless environment through individual exercises and through the instructions of your field coordinator.

Location

Location

The Scandinavian Mountain range holds some of the last areas of true untouched nature in Europe. Some of the vegetation started growing just after the last ice age ended. There are literally thousands of hectares where there has never been anything but feet, hoofs or paws touching the ground.

Free Time

Free Time

You will be in the wilderness all the time. That does not mean you won’t have resting days or free time. In the tented camp, there will be much time for learning how to make fires, cooking, wilderness skills or just chilling out with a good book.
