Learn how to winter camp in the arctic
Sarek light is an educational trip where you are prepared for future winter expeditions. You will be guided to the best way to survive arctic winter conditions like snowstorms and temperatures below -20°C. The deep valleys and high peaks in the national park creates a perfect environment where mother nature and your instructor will teach you how to navigate, set safe camps and sleep warm all night long. During four days and three nights you will get a glimpse of what the Sarek has to offer.
Sarek national park is referred to as “The last wilderness of Europe” and here you will find no signs of modern society. Impressive U-shaped valleys are carved by glaciers during millions of years and are still covered by meters of snow from November to the end of May. This is the home to foxes, wolverines and moose that all have found a way to survive in this open landscape.
This course is for you who…
