Father’s Day is approaching in Sweden, Finland, Iceland, Estonia and Norway – how will you celebrate your outdoorsy dad?

We have a tip: look up a nice place in nature, make a big bonfire, bring good food, and gather the whole family and maybe some friends. Warm clothes hot drinks in thermos and sandwiches or hot dogs to cook over the open fire – that’s a perfect recipe for a great Father’s Day.

But it is also fun even with surprises and gifts! We have collected some ideas for gifts for the outdoorsy father. From warm wool hats to durable shirts, trousers – warm and functional for outdoor family days in the forest.farsdag-fjallraven

Övik Family, functional and versatile products inspired by our heritage

Written by Jerry Engström 14 Oct, 2013 in "Families"

Övik

It is no coincidence that it was in Örnsköldsvik, or “Övik” as the city is often called, that a 14 year old boy started to construct his own backpack frames out of wood. Those backpack frames would become the foundation of Fjällräven.

Here, nature plays a large role in people’s lives. Nature is a strong source of energy and community.

Close to nature

One of the greates things about Övik is that the city and it’s surroundings are so close to nature.

This means that it is easy to head out into nature, which is one of the reasons Örnsköldsvik was named Sweden’s best Outdoor Municipality in 2011.

Here you will find forests expanses, lakes teeming with fish, bays and inlets.

The bright days of spring merge almost seamlessly into bright nights, and the summer offers everything from trekking and climbing to kayaking and fishing.

Winter offers glistning white snow and activities such as skiing and snowshoeing before the often starry nights put on a show of dancing northern lights.

World Heritage

Örnsköldsvik is part of the High Coast, and area which has been named one of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites.

The land elevation makes this area unlike anywhere else in the world. Nowwhere else has the land risen out of the sea after the last ice age as high as it has here.

The result is a natural phenomena such as forested mountain tops, scree fields and exciting caves. And all of this is surrounded by coastal mountains, deep virgin forests and glittering coastline.
