    Arctic Sweden in February; Aurora hang, Abisko

    This year sees me travelling to Sweden for the Jokkmokk winter market meet with the UK forum BushcraftUK, then heading north to Abisko and Lake Tornetrask to hopefully see the Northern lights. Solar maximum is due this Feb

    11th-19th Feb is when I'll be there.

    I'll be hammocking for 7 days in the freezer, exploring the area and generally spending a long time looking up.

    A trip for those who are confident at sleeping out for extended periods in the cold parts of the world. The average temp at this time of year is around 0F/ -15 c.

    Anyone with proper cold weather camping experience who fancies joining me for an epic trip?
