Swedish Midsummer Gathering

Swedish Midsummer Gathering

Fill your cup with positive summer vibes as you adventure and prepare for Swedish midsummer!

As if hiking, mountain biking, canoeing and local food wasn't enough, this slow adventure also includes a traditional Swedish Midsummer celebration!

Midsummer is one of the most beloved holidays for Swedes as they celebrate the summer together, eat herring and potatoes, and dance around the decorative midsummer pole.

We get to know the area's history, culture, and flora and fauna, and spend time gathering and preparing like the locals.

YOUR LOCAL PARTNER

Ellen

the local members BEHIND

Swedish Midsummer Gathering

Ellen has worked with Jon to create this breathtaking adventure in Jamtland Harjedalen. Ellen, our in-destination local partner, moved to Funasdalen in the west of Harjedalen six years ago and considers it the best move she has ever made! In her own words, Ellen describes her local area as a place full of wonderful people, good food and never-ending adventure. Jon is a native of Funasfjallen where you will celebrate 'MIdsommar' after hiking, biking and paddling your way there. Jon is a mountain professional, a fantastic chef and one of the few local activity providers who speaks the traditional Jamt folk language Harjedalska.

We are proud to work with local partners and members who share our passion for slow adventure, sustainability and regeneration. With help and recommendations from Ellen and Jon, we have a number of conservation projects in Jamtland Harjedalen that you can support by booking with Slow Adventure.
