— Walk in the wild —
To leave the trails and roads in Tiveden, and be soothed by the sound of the forest, can be a magical experience. To find your own way through the landscape, invites you to slow down. With careful steps we'll seek the peace that only forest provides when it's allowed to live for it's own sake. We call it to go off track. Together with our guide, you don't have to worry wether you're lost or not ...
And walk into the woods of Tived, maybe even forget who you are? "
The start of a Swedish poem by Carl Ek
We meet up at the Main Entrance of Tiveden National park in the afternoon. From there we'll take a walk in the woods. We talk about the history and the biodiversity of the forest, about forest fires and the ancient natural forces that shaped the landscape. You'll also get to learn how to navigate safely without map or compass in this wild terrain. We stop by a beautiful woodland lake for fika and take some time just to simply absorb the moment in these marvelous surroundings.

What if it's raining?
Well, bring your rain-clothes and put your boots on. We don't cancel this tour because of the weather. We'll adjust our habits though, like choose our way through the landscape a bit more carefully in order for no one to slip and get hurt. To be out in the forest during summer rain, can be both deliberating and challenging, depending on how you think about it. You might get wet yes, but you'll surely dry up afterwards. It's also very beautiful, with every little leaf glistening of water-drops, the very scent of the forest floor changes, and if the sun breaks through the whole forest seems to be covered in stars.
