Local micro adventure

Searching for a small-scale adventure in or around Gothenburg? A quick dip in a lake, food made over open fire and someone to share it all with? On our micro adventures we sleep less then one hour from the city center and we will be back mid day the following day. I will talk about my backpack, navigation, how to make fire, setting camp and more. Depending on the season I have different adventures prepared. A minimum of 2 people are required.

What’s in my backpack?

700 SEK

Throughout my adventures I’ve learned how to master the composition of my backpack and what to leave back home. On this presentation/personal meeting I’ll walk you through the settings and functions of the pack and why I choose to bring the things I do. This workshop is yours to build – focus could be about pilgrimage, long distance hiking/cycling or a micro adventure in a nearby surrounding. Public presentation is 1,5 hours, personal workshop 3 hours.

Warm, Dry & Fed

Why do I always teach people to think about this and why is it important when you're out on adventures?

Company Core Values

Inspirational Outdoors
is about adventures, large
and small.

Our purpose is to inspire and help you to get outdoors. Explore your surroundings in a new way, connect with people, create social networks and opportunities for the future.
The Reasons Why

Gratitude, happiness and friendship.

I know I’m on the right path when I show people in the right direction and see them connect with the surrounding scenery and with each other; when they feel happiness and, for instance, answer the cold wind gusts with a smile instead of hiding in their clothes with empty eyes.
Regarding my business. Imagine a peach. The outer skin is what I do (guiding, presentations etc), the flesh is how I do it and the core of everything, the answer to why, is in the stone. To be a juicy peach or for me to have a healthy business we both need to pay attention to all of above.
I give you the opportunity to see the details in your backpack and the surrounding nature while traveling with me. I help you to raise your head when you’re tired and in return I have someone to appreciate the scenery, the wind gust and morning coffe with. And that, my friend, is why I do it.
A Little Of Our Story

Exploring the nature through our childs' eyes.

In February 2019 our adventures changed focus somewhat. We got our lovely child Elsa. Adventuring with a baby is an adventure in itself and we learned a bunch of new things during our first year and still do every day.
Read our lessons learned

“I had the pleasure of walking with Daniel for a few days on the Camino Portuguese this October. During that time I came to realise he is quite an insightful person with the ability to be very task focused but at the same time thoughtful of other people. It was a walk where we shared interesting conversation and comfortable silences.”

Peter O’Meara, Thailand

“I met Daniel on Fyn at the Fjällräven Classic Denmark. My foot was broken and Daniel looked after me and brought me to the checkpoint. We had great conversations and he also took care of the organization in the hospital afterwards! A great guy! And super nice! He makes jokes and can comfort well when one is sad and does not know any more.”

Lena Krumbeck, Germany

“Even though Daniel has a great sense of humor and is always up for joking around, I would say still waters run deep! On the size of his little backpack – sometimes less is more – you could immediately see that Daniel is an experienced walker, hiker or pilgrim whatever you want to call it. You would never hear a complaint from Daniel, but only acknowledging the bright side of life!”

Judith Ta, Germany

“I met Daniel from Sweden through his post on the Camino pilgrims forum. We met for an morning beer in Lisbon and decided that we would start our Camino together. Daniel speaks excellent English and made me laugh at everything. His comedic sense of timing was much appreciated as was the fact that I know he slowed his pace down dramatically so that we could walk together.”

Kari Gale, USA

“It’s a nice experience to walk 110km trail in 5 days accompany with an interesting and experienced mentor. Daniel took care of team members who had discomfort during the hike and made sure everyone was OK. With Daniel as a guide everyone finished the hike successfully. And I also learned some useful Swedish from him, like how to order a beer, which is so important when you take a rest in the huts or at the finish line.”

楊發發, Taiwan

“An adventure is like a cocktail. When the ingredients are right the taste is phenomenal, and sometimes I just need a slice of lemon. Daniel Vilhelmsson is like the bartender. You are in focus, and if nature serves an adventure cocktail, Daniel lets nature rule. If nature sends you a curved ball with rain or bad weather, Daniel finds the right ingredients to make the adventure complete. To have a bartender in world class, is an insurance that adventure is ahead. So trust your bartender and you’re in for a world class adventure.”

Vidar Lyrstrand, Denmark

“We met Daniel at Fjällräven Classic Sweden 2017. As an experienced guide at this trekking event, he provided us with lots of useful suggestions with great delight before and during trek, it made us feel free to talk with him. In this 5 days, we talked about the magnificent landscape, had some juicy berries, shared some stories of native people, and moreover, he let us know the positive attitude in the wild. It was our pleasure to meet him. We have an unforgettable adventure in Lapland.”

Ya-Chi Yang, Taiwan

“We met Daniel at Fjällräven Classic Sweden 2017 and Fjällräven Classic Denmark 2018. He really is a great guide. He always reminded us of the safety to pay attention during trek and shared a lot of knowledge about the outdoors with us. Daniel is professional but still very humble and has a great sense of humor. He let us know the positive attitude in the wild and life. I learned a lot from him, like positive life attitudes and how to enjoy the outdoors. l feel very lucky to meet him. I hope to meet him again in Fjallraven Classic USA next year.”

陳思蓉 Jamie, Taiwan

“I had the privilege of meeting Daniel in June of this year while walking the Camino Frances. We became part of a group of pilgrims who chose to walk together during the day and to eat, drink and be merry during the evening. It was magical. The interesting thing about Daniel, though, is that he didn’t just walk, eat, and drink with the rest of us; he was also provided leadership in his calm, gentle way. He was always looking out for us; herding the straggler back into the group; making sure everyone was okay without making a big deal of it. I always felt confident when I was walking with Daniel and always felt that laughter was about to break out! I highly recommend him and his leadership skills for any outdoor venture that he undertakes.”

Nancy Brown, Canada

“If your looking for someone who can show you how easy it is to access beautiful and serene places, Daniel is definitely the guy to do that. He is very humble with excellent social skills and humor. He knows what he is talking about when it comes to enjoying and experiencing the outdoors as well as knowledgeable on bushcraft and what equipment to use and not to use. I have joined Daniel for two micro adventures that took place at a hiking distance from the Gothenburg city centre and have absolutely loved it! Both times I slept with nothing but the sky above my head, woke up and went directly to work the day after, but not before having enjoyed a dip in a forest lake and some freshly brewed coffee from an open fire. If you need a guide who can inspire you, Daniel has all the skills you need. And if you are really lucky he might even fry you some pancakes on the open fire in the morning before you head off to work.”

David Heigis, Sweden

“There are two things that stand out with Daniel; his vast knowledge about the great outdoors and maybe most importantly his humble and big-hearted personality. We consulted Daniel while planning for a 10 day trip through Sarek National Park. He did not cease to impress with his extensive knowledge about one of Sweden’s most isolated regions, which he knows as well as his own backyard. If we had done the research ourselves it would have taken days to find and even then there is certain information that you cannot find on the internet. Daniel could answer all of our questions from the tip of the tongue as well as adding extra tips of do’s and don’ts. We received reliable information and feel confident walking through one of Sweden’s wildest regions. On top of Daniel’s extensive knowledge he also has a really enjoyable personality and makes everyone around him feel appreciated. Clearly this is the result of a man who gives his passion everything and loves inspiring others.”

Louise Elger and Konrad Pohl, Sweden
