Escapade SwedenGo to All Members
ESCAPADE Sweden is a company which specialises in transformational travel to the Nordic region. Escapade got its name and brand from its founder Åsa Lind Chong’s love of travel and her heritage as a Nordic, Swedish adventurer. The word Escapade means an ‘exciting or wild adventure’. The logo is an ancient Nordic Rune meaning ’guide post’ or ’pathfinder’, or ’Vegvisir’ in Icelandic, and is sometimes referred to as a Runic Compass.
Both these aspects explain not only what we do but also how we see our role of importance to our visitors. To expertly guide you in a true Nordic adventure in the wilderness of Sweden, as the pathfinders to the best gems the region has to offer.
Traveling with Escapade Sweden is unlike any other journey you have ever embarked upon. We take you off the beaten track, into the wilderness, on to the mountains and find the hidden gems.
Rewilding means to return to a more wild or natural state. Sort of the opposite to domestication.
This is precisely what we have created all of our adventures around. We call it authentic Nordic wilderness and cultural experiences right in the heart of the true north.
Whether you are mainly after a trekking experience under the midnight sun, a skiing or Husky dog-sledding trip on the snow and ice, a foraging tour for berries and mushrooms, or to learn about the indigenous Sami way of life and play, we have journeys to suit your wishes and needs.
Every Escapade adventure is made to suit ages, needs and wishes. All of our Rewilding adventures has a core set of activities expertly adjusted by our guides to suit every season and the weather conditions of the day. These include: Making fires, cooking & eating outside, Bush-craft, Trekking/skiing/snow shoeing through mountain and forest terrain and Wilderness survival basics for each season – such as foraging & fishing.
Apart from the guided core of Rewilding adventures, we also offer a number of extra activities to chose from including:
Journey to a Sami village, Dog-sledding, Husky Experience, Skiing – Nordic Ski touring, X-C (cross-country), Randonnee, Slalom, Snow boarding, Snow shoeing, Extended Survival trip, Helicopter trip, Heli skiing, X-C skating, Ice climbing, Canoeing, Kayaking, Trekking, Foraging, Fishing, Tenting and MTB.
Depending on which season you visit, the way in which these activities are carried out of course differ depending on whether you arrive during the snowy or the summery months. Each season has its own magic and opportunities to explore and enjoy the Nordic, Swedish wilderness!
We continuously seek out fun experiences and pride ourselves on only offering adventures with authenticity. Our Sami journey for example is to visit a family of reindeer herders and to explore their territory together with them in the way that they do – on foot, by canoe or on skis and even snowmobiles.
In piecing together the experiences that form part of each adventure, we have taken to heart the need for people in today’s busy societies to Rewild themselves and their families. We therefore offer Transformational adventures with Nordic wilderness culture at its core.
We celebrate the seasons up here in the north and create adventures and experiences to suit them all. Whether you want to explore on the snow and ice, or prefer summer celebrations under the midnight sun, we have the best spots and guides to make your specific journey special.
Today a lot of people are suffering a form of Nature Deficit disorder. A phrase coined by Richard Louv in his book Last Child in the Woods, meaning that human beings, especially children, are spending less time outdoors resulting in a wide range of problems. We want to help and contribute to a cure for this and see adventure travel to this spectacular part of the world with its ancient land, giant rivers, forests and mountains coupled with a rich and vibrant culture as a great method for doing so.
You can only book these journeys through us.
