Winter Activities

Winter Camping:

Winter camping in a tent? In the site of Johannisholm Adventure we have a large tipi tent where you can spend the night on a bed of pine boughs and reindeer skins. To keep you warm a crackling fire burns in the stove. It is wonderful to sleep in a thick sleeping bag whilst it is freezing outside, also you can make a shelter outside if you wish. This is made by building up the snow and putting pine branches over the top and inside.

Snow shoe walk:snowshoe walk new 300x227

In winter parts of the area which are easy to reach in summer becomes impossible. How can we reach them ? Simple: By foot! with special snow shoes that look a bit like tennis rackets. You can walk over frozen swamps and snowy hills. In the magnificent setting you'll only hear the crackling snow. On the snowshoe walk we use GPS to find our way, you walk from one GPS coordinate to another.

 Skating:

Swedish people are really into skating, There are skating  rinks ( natural of course) on the nearby lakes, Kattbosjön, Orsasjön, Siljan and Ojesjön. Here the ice fields seem almost endless with so many frozen lakes.

 

Curling:curling1

Curling is a sport in which players slide stones across a sheet of ice towards a target area which is segmented into four rings. It is related to bowls. Two teams of four players take turns sliding heavy, polished granite stones also called rocks, across the ice curling sheet towards the house, a circular target marked on the ice.
