Adventure week in Sälen
This summer we welcome you to an adventure week in Sälen, which is especially suitable for families, but also for those who are eager to learn something new and enjoy the mountains. Rafting, climbing, mountain biking or why not try a night in a tent?
Surrounded by beautiful environments and like-minded, this may be the odd adventure that you both remember and laugh about for a long time to come. Mountain trails that long to being cycled, rapids that just have to be paddled and sunsets that are experienced from first row, while the food boils ready at the gas stove. Everything tastes better outdoors.
We have put together a proposal for a week with some of our most popular activities. Replace, add or run exactly as we suggest. In our example, no transport is included, but of course we are happy to help you on site as well as with shuttling to Gardermoen or some of Sweden’s largest cities.
This will be a week where we let nature and animals help us relax, learn something new, but above all – laugh with like-minded people.
Day 1 - Tent night
We meet at our store Nordic Adventure (Fäbodvägen 10), where we go through equipment and pack our bags for a night outdoors. There are plenty of cozy excursion destinations in Sälen, but also Sweden’s tallest waterfall or the world’s oldest tree is worth a visit.
Let the weather and wishes decide. With a backpack home you will get first row for a sunset that we enjoy while dinner is cooked over the gas stove. All equipment is included and with an experienced guide you will learn a lot of tricks on camp life
Day 2 - MTB Course
The day begins with taking down the camp site and returning to civilization. After lunch, the day continues on the MTB bike saddle. Our courses are aimed at both beginners and medium cyclists. We will go through the technique, equipment and what should be included in a MTB rider’s backpack. It will be an afternoon with many tips and tricks that will trim your development curve.
Day 3 - Mountain or park MTB riding
With yesterday’s course fresh in mind, we head for the mountains. Lunch is included and cooked over an open fire. Expect about 4 hours of cycling. This is also a day that could be spent in the bike park if you want. With a lift pass you get the altitude meters free of charge. Of course, we are there and make sure you get the most out of your cycling. After a day in the mountains, a warm sauna will be welcome or why not treat yourself to a little pool-spa in Experium’s sauna world?
Day 4 - River rafting
We go to Trysil and let our legs rest in the rubber raft. Expect a full day with rafting and lunch along the river.
Day 5 - Mountain hike with dog companion
Take a relaxing beautiful mountain hike. If you book at least three other activities, you also get the offer to borrow a dog from us for free. Bringing a dog often motivates all family members to get out and up the mountain
Day 6 - Climbing
We meet at our facility to pack equipment for a day on the mountain. Rock climbing is about focus and overcoming their imagined limitations. We introduce to the sport and teach you how rope knots and other equipment work. Lunch is cooked over an open fire and on the way home often a dip in a lake is recommended. When you have dared to rock climbing, perhaps you also dare to jump from a tower into the lake?

Frequently Asked Questions
Why go with Fjälläventyr?
We have experienced guides and instructors that will help you get the most out of your stay. We take care of logistics surrounding your stay and make sure time is not spent on the wrong things.
How do I dress?
The mountain weather is really unreliable so it is important to be prepared. Dress according to the layer-by-layer principle and avoid cotton closest to your body. A warm sweater and rain jacket can be nice in the evening. Choose boots with slightly higher shaft or coarser sneakers. Swimwear is nice to have, sometimes we find a sauna in the mountains, and do not forget the sun block, as well as insect repellent. Sunglasses and sunshade cords can be good to use.
Check out our store Nordic Adventure if you need to gear up.
