It was here in Örnsköldsvik / High Coast that Åke Nordin founded Fjällräven in 1960. Since then Fjällräven have stayed true to their proud heritage of developing durable, timeless and functional equipment. During the Winter Hike Fjällräven will share their experience during the outdoor school at the second nightcamp.
Woolpower is a wool specialist with all production in Östersund not to far west from FriluftsByn. What we really like with woolpower is that the seamstresses quality mark the garments they sew by stitching their own name tags inside them. Woolpower will join the hike and showcase the power of wool with the Woolpower Dip at the second nightcamp.
Already in 1892 F.W. Lindqvist and J.V. Svenson started to develop world’s first soot-free kerosene stove – calling them Primus (meaning first).

During the Winter Hike Primus will support with a little barbeque and show their outstanding equipment.
