NOLS Wilderness First Responder

The guides working at Fjälläventyr is all about service and safety. While keeping the service on top is a given in the tourism industry, in our everyday profession security is of the utmost importance. Every day we are responsible for up to 50 guests and as many dogs on the mountain, and we are responsible for the security of all the people and animals crossing our dogsleds’ path. Risk management and damage control is our alfa and omega and all our guides are trained in first aid.

We make sure to have at least one certified Wilderness First Responder on our longer tours and travels, from a couple of days and more. The certificate is given after completing a ten day course in advanced first aid treatment and evacuation for the organization NOLS, one of the worlds largest in outdoor training. This means we are ready in case of accident, even far out in the outback in poor weather conditions far from external help.
