Cold + Snow = OK

Cold, snowstorm, roadblock and lots of snow and more to come this afternoon. At Nordmarken Canoe Center are we prepared for the worse? We can use our Volvo Jeep 303, the Artic Snowgo, the ATW, Skies or Snowshoe. It´s just a matter of be prepared and like the situation. In a few days a group from South Africa is coming for some extreme winter Survival Training and Buschcraft and there is also a group from Holland for basic sub artic training. One of the members has done 2x7 days winter training here before so welcome back. So in the next coming weeks the Wilderness Experience Intentional Survival School will have some who need snow and really cold weather.

Finally we got some fines snow. Last night we got ca 30 cm of fine Powder snow and it will snow some more days. Time for tracking Wolf and Lynx as soon as the snowing stops. It not good for the ice on the lake, and we still got some open water in the canoe bay. Ice fishing it not secure at this moment ice is too thin.

Bad Winter or Good Winter ?



This winter is no good so far. Very little snow and no ice on the larger lakes. We do have minus 5-8 c every day and night at Risviken but the Canoe Bay is not frozen yet. It means that the fine winter fishing can´t be done right now, but ice is coming slowly at the shore line. I think in a week with good frost the bay will be OK for ice fishing. Our fishing cabin is free almost every weekend this winter so make a reservation when the ice is good. Call 0573 38060 for info.

Wilderness Workshop in Årjäng 18 April to 21 April 2014

Wilderness Workshop in Årjäng 18 April to 21 April 2014

At Wilderness Experience International Survival School WEISS we are running an international workshop with its focus on Survival and Bushcraft.
People with similar interest of these two subjects are more than welcome to join us at The Survival School at Nordmarken Canoe Center in Årjäng Sweden.
We start the workshop 18 of April and close the 21 April 2014.
The idea is that you can come and meet folks with the same interest as yourself.  You can show off equipment, share ideas and experiences with others in a fine atmosphere at our Base Camp near the Survival School.
We can offer a good Base Camp with modern facilities for toilets and showers. Wooden shelters and a good campground for your bascha or tent
If the idea proves popular we will invite specialists in different areas to have short seminars some of the days but this will be dependant on bookings.
The price will be 400:- SEK per person for the whole time and that include use of the camp and firewood and if the weather is bad an indoor room for meetings.
Traders or those wishing to sell gear will be charged a further charge 500:- SEK per day for a stand.
To confirm interest for me and check on arrangements for this event go to our mail address canoes@swipnet.se and mail me your interest and address so I can send you more information.
The Survival school will be open house and we can show you a lot of equipment and deal with more than 5o years of experience in this matter,
You can come days before and leave days later without any problem bookings for such will be at our normal camping rate.
You are welcome
