Primitive Fire

4 hours

"Be able to provide yourself with light and warmth in a primitive way!"

Create a primitive fire with different materials and techniques!

Be able to create warmth and light for yourself with only natural materials, a skill you have to master during survival!


Only the people learned how to create and manage fire. In ancient civilizations fire was a precious commodity for cooking, lighting, heating, exploitation of forests for farmland and material processing such as blacksmithing and pottery. It was obtained with difficulty and therefore well maintained. Now in today's society with all its comforts many don’t know the art of the fire anymore.

Dalarna Outdoor offers you the opportunity  to make a fire on the primitive ways!

What satisfied you will feel when you can make a fire without using matches or a lighter! Knowledge is the key!

A unique experience of nature in the Swedish wilderness! We will teach you how to make fire with natural tinder, and with;

  • a magnesium stick of fire stem.
  • a flint and steel.
  • a fire bow or Indian bow.
  • a fire pump.



We will gather in the forest, where you will receive instructions from our instructor.

Together, we will first start looking for useful materials to make a primitive fire.

It's amazing how much material can be found there in nature that you can use, even if it has rained there are opportunities.

When we have collected all materials our instructor will demonstrate the different ways on how to make a fire and keep it burning.

Then you must accept the challenge to yourself to start a fire!

Afterwards you can enjoy a delicious Swedish Fika by you own made primitive campfire!
