This is a unique opportunity to experience 3 days living outdoors in the wilderness of Swedish Lapland, close to the original factory where our Nordic Tipis are made.

You won’t be on the tourist trail, but instead experiencing the real wilderness with Sonny Holmberg, a local expert guide and trapper.

You’ll be snowmobiling, ice fishing, dog sledging, sleeping in Tentipi tents, cooking over open fire and more.

If you’ve not been into this environment before, it is a truly remarkable experience and one that’s likely to stay with you your whole life.

The deal is that you get yourself to and from Arvidsjaur airport in Sweden, and we’ll take care of all the other costs (accommodation, food, transfers, snowmobile and clothing hire, fuel, fishing event, a couple of beers with dinner, etc).


The draw will take place on 17 October 2018
with the winners notified on that day.


"Just an incredible experience, but the highlight was seeing the amazing Northern Lights, no words or photos can really do it justice."

Dave Fletcher, went in 2017

Travel by car to Tentipi factory in Moskosel, to see where the giant Nordic Tipi event industry was born.

Here you will get a brief presentation, a tour of production area, and learn to sew on the industrial machines and make yourself a shopping bag to take home. Coffee with the production staff during the morning, and lunch.

Travel by car back to Arvidsjaur, dress for outdoor adventure, collect snowmobiles and equipment and head off into the wilderness.

Make camp: erect tents, build communal fireplace, cook over the fire, eat, socialise, and sleep.

Between 25km and 50km snowmobile drive to remote lake for ice fishing - try to catch some lunch.

Another activity, hopefully dogsled. Make camp again. Enjoy the night sky - no light pollution so many stars. With luck... see the Northern Lights.

Break camp, return to Arvidsjaur. Hopefully there will be enough time to visit a couple of local shops before freshening up and back to the airport.
