Food, Lodging and Travel

Participants will be staying for the full duration in tents. The tents are four-season, top of the line, high alpine tents from the tentmaker Hilleberg. Two-three people will share a tent. You will be instructed in how to make the very most of your living space, your gear and all other aspects of a true deep wilderness expedition.

Your meals will consist of dehydrated foodstuffs. It is actually just normal food that has been air-dried. Our staff do most of the dehydration before the start date of the expedition. If you have any sort of food allergies, we urge you to specify this when you book or write us an email. We keep to a strong ethic of buying ecological or locally produced foodstuffs. Any meat that is served comes from the wild.

Note: We are able to cater for some allergies. The food that we serve out in the wilderness is vegetarian with meat as a side option. No other options are available! This is due to the extreme difficulties of preparing food for eight different dietary requirements in the wilderness. We ask for your understanding in this.

Travel

You will have to arrange travel to Stockholm Central train station. There you will be picked up by your field coordinator. The closest airports are Stockholm Arlanda (ARN), Stockholm Skavsta (NYO). Arlanda is the closest airport. From certain European countries, you can also take a bus or train to Stockholm. Check with your national travel services.

Expedition Requirements

Participants must be aged 18+, be in good physical condition, able to work as part of a team and be self-motivated when carrying out a range of tasks. You should expect to be doing lots of hiking while carrying backpacks full of gear.

Participants should be able to carry backpacks ranging from 15-25 kg. Note that carrying heavy backpacks will be done only between 4-5 days. If you are very fit, you are welcome to carry more of course.

For people with medical issues, we urge you that you consult a medical professional before embarking on this expedition. When you are out on day trips, you walk anywhere between 1-20 kilometres depending on what you find along the way. During these day trips, you will be carrying a normal day pack of around 5 kilos.

You should be fluent in English or Swedish.
