Tree Camping Expedition on the Solander Trail

Nature experience the “Friluftsliv” (free-air-living) way

On this guided wilderness hike on the Solander trail, you will learn basic Friluftsliv and Nordic forest survival skills, such as making fire, outdoor cooking the Swedish lifestyle way, edible wild plants and berries, nature interpretation and wildlife tracking, sleeping in nature in Tree Tents and more. The Nordic Forest Lifestyle of Friluftsliv is introduced by a biologist, Friluftsliv expert and professor in experience production, Dr. Hansi Gelter.
You will experience the Nordic lifestyle of Friluftsliv (free-air-life) – the natural way to interconnect with the landscape and nature. You will in your own pace hike along the Solander trail through the boreal taiga forest where moose, deer, stray reindeers, brown bears, lynx and occasional wolfs live. Birds we may encounter are golden eagles, eagle-owl, capercaillie, black grouse, hazel grouse cranes, Siberian jay and many other. We hike through the landscape formed by the last ice age with small forest lakes and bogs, cliffs and hills, sandy pine forests and old spruce forests. We prepare our meals over open fire and learn to prepare and eat wild berries, plants and mushrooms we find on our way. Other Friluftsliv skills are to slow down and relax, and “just be there” in nature – an overwhelming experience. By night we sleep in the trees in a TreeTent camp – elevated from the ground in comfortable Tensile Tree Tenths and sleeping bags. Your nature interpretator and guide will introduce you to this forest world, from mycology to mythology, covering ethnobiology -  how nature has been used for survival to the tales and myths about the forest creatures in folklore.
