We will welcome everybody on Friday August 3, 2018, 12h00 at the railway station of Groningen. We will travel with small busses for 9 persons to the direction of Sweden. During the journey we will stay in / near a Scoutingbuilding.
From Groningen we will drive to the beautiful nature reserve Glaskogen area. In a nutshell the program will consist of: puzzling and orientation, hiking in the hills, through dense forests or a crossing about a swamp. In Sweden you do the hiking in small groups to the next bivouac. Daily you will walk, bike and/or sail distances up to 8 hours of moving a day.
You will carry all your personal belongings yourself in a rucksack. We often ask each group to take a few extra things like food, pieces of wood for the logfires, a piece of canvas or drinking water.
During the trip you wil solve some map- and compasspuzzles. At several posts you will have nice activities with a big eyewink to the primitive life or you just eat something nice.
It is not just walking but you will also be on a raft or in canoe to peddle to the next bivouac in order to take a dip or catch some fish.
We choose some nice bivouacspots for Mission Possible Sweden which are situated most of time near the waterside. There you will prepare warm meals at a logfire, that you will eat together with the other participants. There will be also a lot of pleasant things on the program!
We aim at combining two different matters a day, such as walking with an activity with a theme, lorrybiking, rockclimbing and so on. The cooking, building your bivouac and socialize in the evening around a campfire are a clear part of Mission Possible Sweden.
On Saturday morning 11th August 2018 we will start to return home to Holland. We will stay overnight again in a Scoutingbuilding. Sunday morning August 12, 2018 we will continue our drive back to Groningen where you will arrive during the afternoon at the central railwaystation.
