Episode 011: Thomas Ivung Outdoor Sweden – Hike or Die Outdoor Adventure Podcast

With special guest & Swedish outdoorsman Thomas Ivung

Our first podcast of 2019 takes us to the forests of Sweden where we talk to Swedish outdoorsman Thomas Vuling. We discuss his passion for the outdoors, his philosophies, favourite gear, Nordic Gods, the Sami people, wolves and Kent the Moose. This was all while he tended to his fire, sipped his coffee and was barked at by a deer who discovered him. It’s a truly inspiring episode and learning about Thomas’ perception of the outdoors was enlightening.
