Vildmarksmässan The Swedish Outdoor Show

I've was at the Vildmarksmässan in Stockholm over the weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it. 

The conference centre at Älvsjo was packed with outdoors kit and talks and workshops were given on hunting, photography, expeditions, climbing and other adventurous activities. 
I spent some time being distracted by beautiful handmade knives.
Learned about the history of the Swedish friluftsfrämjandet an organisation I have often cited in my work towards a Masters degree in Outdoor education.

I also learned about the swedish jägarexamen (hunting exam) which could be a great example of good practice for us in the UK and met some great people.

 A great weekend.
