Escapade Sweden

About us

ESCAPADE Sweden is a company which specialises in transformational travel to the Nordic region. Escapade got its name and brand from its founder Åsa Lind Chong’s love of travel and her heritage as a Nordic, Swedish adventurer. The word Escapade means an ‘exciting or wild adventure’. The logo is an ancient Nordic Rune meaning ’guide post’ or ’pathfinder’, or ’Vegvisir’ in Icelandic, and is sometimes referred to as a Runic Compass.

Both these aspects explain not only what we do but also how we see our role of importance to our visitors. To expertly guide you in a true Nordic adventure in the wilderness of Sweden, as the pathfinders to the best gems the region has to offer.

We continuously seek out fun experiences  and pride ourselves on only offering adventures with authenticity. Our Sami journey for example is to visit a family of reindeer herders and to explore their territory together with them in the way that they do – on foot, by canoe or on skis and even snowmobiles.

In piecing together the experiences that form part of each adventure, we have taken to heart the need for people in today’s busy societies to Rewild themselves and their families. We therefore offer Transformational adventures with Nordic wilderness culture at its core.

We celebrate the seasons up here in the north and create adventures and experiences to suit them all. Whether you want to explore on the snow and ice, or prefer summer celebrations under the midnight sun, we have the best spots and guides to make your specific journey special.

Today a lot of people are suffering a form of Nature Deficit disorder. A phrase coined by Richard Louv in his book Last Child in the Woods, meaning that human beings, especially children, are spending less time outdoors resulting in a wide range of problems. We want to help and contribute to a cure for this and see adventure travel to this spectacular part of the world with its ancient land, giant rivers, forests and mountains coupled with a rich and vibrant culture as a great method for doing so.

 

You can only book these journeys through us.
