OUTDOOR SCHOOLS AND SEMINARS
During the High Coast Winter Hike you get to learn skills, tips and tricks that will improve your outdoor experiences in winter and impress your friends next time you go out together.
Before we set out we will go through the very basics of outdoor life in winter. Some people who join the adventure have never been winter hiking, less camped in winter before so it is important that we understand the basics. On thursday Gränsfors Axes and Morakniv will tell us more about their equipment and you will also get a chance to practise making fire.
On friday evening you can take part in Fjällrävens “Camp in Comfort” course where you learn more about tents, sleepingbags and how to set up the perfect nightcamp.
