Wild Escape Sweden 2022

Wild Escape Sweden 2022

Escape from civilization into the tranquil and undisturbed lakes, rivers and forests of Sweden. You’ll canoe 40km total during the six day trip, spending your mornings trekking through the forest, practicing Yoga and learning about the natural environment. In the evening, you’ll see why Sweden is known as “the land of the Midnight sun”—with tons of daylight, you’ll have ample time to wild swim, fish, and relax around the camp fire.

Wild Escape has been designed to help you slow down to the flow of the river and be fully present in the wilderness. Your guides on the trip are fitness, bushcraft, and wilderness experts who will teach you how to survive in the environment, enhance your fitness, center your well being—and hopefully see some resident elk and beavers along the way.

One of our client experiences

"Going to Sweden with Adventure Fitness was a trip I would recommend to anyone, no matter what level of fitness or camping experience. I really enjoyed the stunning scenery from the canoes, which were easily mastered, also the camping, cooking and foraging led to some interesting culinary experiences! Travelling with like minded people makes for great team work and cooperation and it also matters that you can have complete trust in those that are leading as Dave, Stuart and their marine friends ensured our safety and enjoyment. A great expedition"

There are three things to consider:

  1. Tick borne encephalitis – please speak to your GP about this. We are not in a high risk region so this is personal preference
  2. Tetanus – please be up to date before the trip.
  3. EHIC – European Health Insurance Card – you will need one of these. Please visit www.dh.gov.uk/travellers and apply online.

Please consult your doctor. It is worth taking antibacterial soap with you and washing your hands before eating. Even by taking these precautions it is still possible to get an upset stomach, so having your own supply of Imodium (and loo roll) is advisable – if taking wet wipes, ensure they are biodegradable (i.e. Kandoo)


The temperatures in the wilderness could still be over 300C during the day but may dip below freezing at night. Be prepared for all eventualities. The likely temperatures are a max of 25 and a min of around 10. It can quite windy though.
