Along the Frozen River

Along the Frozen River

It has been cold a few days… a couple of weeks So the waters are freezing Unfortunately the snow makes the surface a bit rough But it works! In Swedish they are called Långfärdsskridskor which means Long distance skates They are made for going long distance …on natural ice And therefore they are quite long Natural ice are often a bit rough on the surface So if the skate is long you get a smoother ride You can also go faster …which is good when you’re going long distance I’m using a ski binding …the same type of binding as on my skis So I can use the same boots Which is practical And works very well But you can have any type of binding you like If you have other type of boots as well

    It's difficult to imagine it being that cold anywhere at the moment, hopefully Santa is busy whipping the elves in the sweatshop & not wasting time playing in the snow. Great sequence where you head for the bridge & a train passes overhead, that's what you call timing.

    The vids by Erik seem to cause a yearning to be there more than almost any other vlog does. It's been so long since we've had a proper winter where I live. Climate in crisis.

  57. Bianco 1978 says:

    Nice one I wish we got proper snowy winters like that in England instead of all this non stop relentless rain….

  58. Trudi swanson says:

    Crikey! I could feel your fingers turning to ice as you took the gloves off to make your fire. Amazing to watch you chip away at that frozen river and not get hurt by shards. And I learned that you folk in frozen areas have blades for different ice surfaces. It's not all smooth as I'd imagined. 😊 from Queensland, Australia ⛱

  59. 청풍Aether says:

    Nice skates!

  60. Bianco 1978 says:

  67. Joe Hikes says:

    Those ice skates are awesome. You could really cover a lot of miles with those. What's the long pole used for?

  68. Mikehikebike says:

    Excellent! Your videos always bring back memories from my youth in Pennsylvania. Ice hockey on ponds, skating up river, even wearing boots in the snow. Crunch, crunch, crunch. Thanks!

  69. Don Yates says:

    Your audio and video are outstanding. Brrr!

  70. Vivek Gaur says:

    Pls fill snow in kettle to make water instead of direct water because that sound is awesome 🌨️😍

    It has been years since I've I skated on a frozen pond back in the thirties thank you for sharing it brought back memories

  78. Lolllò x says:

    Hi Erik what sleeping bag do you use during the winter period ?

  79. Peter Habel says:

    Cool Erik! 🙂

  80. Vern Hallgren says:

    Hej Erik, looks like northern Sweden had a very short autumn. It’s amazing that the river is frozen enough for you to skate on so early before winter. You excel at making fires on almost any surface to brew your coffee. Great video, especially the train on the viaduct as you were skating upriver. Tack sa mycket.

  81. 首藤天信 says:

    What is this ski called? I have never seen this like.

  84. Kevin Outdoors says:

    Great work on the video! You just need a hockey stick! 🏒🍁

  85. Luke Smith says:

    Finding peace in solitude, but willing to share it with shows great virtue. A million thanks from Seattle, WA.

  86. Blackshack’s Bushcraft says:

    My legs were aching just from watching 🙂

  87. The Outbound Swede says:

    So nice! Cant wait for the ice to settle on our lakes down here in the ”south” as well 🙏 Early winter is it?

  88. Dan Van Der Woude says:


  89. Roger Bond says:

    Thanks for explaining about your skates, we don't have a use for them in England.

  90. Don_Kandon says:

    Are those Alfa shoes? Is it winter edition with padding/insulation? How do you like them? Im thinking of getting regular 3 season alfa shoes (non winter version, as i have columbia omni heats for 0 to -10c, and then sorel caribous for -10c and lower) often comes on sale at xxl, for like 799kr instead of 1500 or so. Thinking to give Alfa a try, and wondering if its worth it.

  91. ysgolgerlan says:

    Thanks for the video, It must be great being able to travel longer distances in that weather. Do you use that system for overnight camps ?

  92. Андрей Привалов says:

    Отличное видео! спасибо Эрик.

  93. Ристу Георгиев says:

    Hello from Bulgaria. Nice skates. Great video as always.

  94. Avia Salter says:

    You make it look easy! Your cold icy world is very beautiful. Cheers 🙂

  95. jeff morris says:

    Beautiful Erik. It doesn't get that cold in Tennessee but your rainy day hikes have given me inspiration to do my own. Thanks Jeff

  96. Sr89 Sm153 says:

    Did you learn all your outdoor skills from your father and mother?

  97. bob4jjjj says:

    I do wish our rivers would freeze over so we could skate down them, but then they tend to be fast flowing and this does not tend to be good for skating.
    Thanks for another inspiring video.

  98. Rob Davidson says:

    The skates return. For my use or interest no, but I will admit fascination with skate that uses an NNN BC binding. Great visual story, bringing in the environment, a nod to the gear then listening to the wild. Trains are always cool too.
