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

  1. 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.

  3. 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 ⛱

  5. Красиво ! Хорошая сьемка . Шведы ,очень любят природу ,молодцы !!! Уважение !

  6. 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!

  7. Thank you for your videos very much. I and my daughter enjoy watching your videos and especially winter camping. We are from Canada and very much enjoy outdoors as well. Thank you for inspiring other people and passing the experience through videos so well.

  8. I get so much enjoyment from your videos. I know you thank us for watching, but the real thanks goes to you for making them. And please keep those hallmark moments, the Crowe, the ☕️and, 👍. All the best from Ontario Canada

  9. 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.

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

  11. 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 ?

  12. 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

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. Conversations with God, by Neale Walsh … the movie. This is me, also.

  16. Beautiful winter scenery 👍🏻😉 We still haven’t got snow here in Denmark 🇩🇰
    See you on the next one 🔥🦌🌤🇸🇪 Atb to you

  17. Great as usual. I noticed that many times there is hardly any wind in your videos. Compared to this I struggle to light a fire with a match on my hikes due to gales and wind most of the time.

  18. Thank you for sharing. This is the first time I've ever seen skates like this and looks very practical! I can't seem to get enough of these videos. Erik, I feel in some way I'm living vicariously through your videos until I can get on my next hike (Which will be in a few days at this point).

    Keep up the good work!

  19. My house doesn't have snow. I live in Thailand I therefore like to watch you and follow you. If I had a chance in my life I want to do like you.

  20. Hi Erik. Do you ever miss actually being there in the moment, instead of just making a movie which illustrates a man just being in the moment? I don´t mean it in a bad way. It´s just that I guess the filming takes a lot of time. And it´s probably difficult to enjoy the moment as much as you would if you didn´t have to think about documenting everything. So do you ever miss just being there, by yourself in that excact moment? I´m always enjoying your videos though! 🙂 Thanks!

  21. Why people alter (ruin) this kind of experience just to show off and beg for money will never cease to amaze me. It actually makes me sad that anyone can be thinking about cameras and youtube and all the bullshit that goes along with the process at a time like this.
