Arctic Bushcraft - The ideal challenge in winter conditions.

Do you want to experience a real winter? Then this winter bushcraft course is really recommended.

This is a collaboration between Bushpappa.nl and karusurvival

Finland belongs to the boreal zone, where each year is divided into four seasons. Winter starts in November and ends at the end of March or April. Winters in Eastern Finland are cold and there is snow, lots of snow. The temperature is mostly below zero throughout the winter. On the coldest days the temperature can drop to as low as -30 degrees Celsius. 

During this winter bushcraft course you will learn all about how to propel yourself through the snowy forests and how to survive dangerous winter situations. You will learn how to build temporary shelters suitable for winter conditions, but also about your energy consumption in these conditions and about your winter equipment. We will go ice fishing, prepare our food over a campfire, hike on snowshoes and walk through the snowy forests on cross country skis.

Our instructors are professionals who specialize in survival training in the Arctic. This winter bushcraft course is conducted under safe conditions at 1 of our training sites in North Karelia. As temperatures here can drop to - 30 degrees Celsius, we will use a traditional Finnish hunting lodge, located on a frozen lake, which is always warm and open, as our main accommodation. 

We are going to encourage you to sleep outside, either in a quinzee, snow hole, under your tarp, in a tent (with and without a heater), to let you experience what that is like, but also to show you that you can just do that, without getting cold. If you don't feel comfortable, there is always the possibility to sleep in the cabin by the fireplace. The cabin is split into 2, so that the men and women both have their own dormitory with bunk beds. 

For those who want there is also a sauna. This is free to use. 

The weekly program is a mix of lectures and outdoor workshops. Each day will end at the campfire while we enjoy hot drinks and good stories about arctic life.
