Even if you fancy yourself a rugged outdoors enthusiast, with some hiking trips and camping excursions under your belt, you’re likely unprepared to brave some of the harshest wilderness this planet has to offer — the Arctic. So, if you’re planning an epic foray into the frozen north, you’ll need to master some essential wilderness skills first. By equipping you with all the necessary know-how, this new tour, organized by Off The Map Travel, is designed to turn you into a seasoned Arctic explorer.
This Tour Will Give You the Skills You Need To Survive the Arctic Wilderness
The tour will bring you to Sweden’s Luleå Archipelago to learn survival skills in the heart of the Arctic, under the Northern Lights. As a guest, you’ll be staying in a log cabin surrounded by trees, and accompanied by a local guide who will equip you with wilderness skills like building a fire, setting up camp, identifying and following animal tracks, and finding food sources. From the ingredients you gather in the wild, you’ll prepare your own traditional Arctic cuisine — usually heavy in berries and fish. The tour also includes some time in a traditional Sami tent and a wildlife safari around the archipelago’s coast.
You can sign up for the ultimate wilderness experience starting November 2018. For more information, check out the tour’s official website.
