Welcome to SKOG™23
This epic event is a celebration of life on adventure — around the world, across continents, following a new trail or returning to a favorite spot.
SKOG™ camp is where friends unite and reunite. It is where we share stories, acquire new skills and build experience. In all meanings of the term – SKOG™ is where the rubber meets the road.
While On Your Motorcycle
Gravel Touring (Guided)
Adventure touring along public roads — primarily winding, gravel roads — aimed at riders wanting to familiarize themselves with gravel riding and for those riding heavier motorcycles. The purpose is to increase your comfort level once leaving the asphalt behind. Come enjoy an adventure ride through gorgeous landscapes offering varied pace- and skill level.
Gravel & Offroad (Guided)
Adventure ride along public roads with trail and single track sections added — best suited for experienced riders and those riding a lighter and more nimble motorcycle. Chances are you will break a sweat, get muddy and wet.
Riding Classes (Guided)
Improve your riding skills and head home a safer adventurer. Our skilled instructors invite you to riding challenges on a closed track. Our training classes are suitable for riders of all skill levels — beginner to experienced.
Your Own Style (NOT Guided)
Download our GPS routes and venture off with your riding buddy or group of friends. Enjoy the glorious adventure riding roads of Småland at your own pace. Bring a sandwich and coffee and ride in style.
In the event of an unfortunate technical breakdown, we will do our best to recover you and your motorcycle and bring you back to camp. In camp you will find tools and assistance to perform basic repairs. For more terminal problems you must rely on your own recovery options.

When Off Your Machine
As always we to serve great meals all through the event. A hearty, full breakfast to start the day and a dinner scrumptious enough to keep you going just thinking of it — a bit like a carrot on a stick. Lunch is the sandwich you make yourself at breakfast, or anything you chose to bring along — maybe a freeze-dried meal?

SKOG™ is a Basecamp North event, and as such we observe a “Leave No Trace” policy as adventurers. We stay on trail, we leave no trash, we treat nature and environment with proper respect and conduit. In camp you’ll find containers for trash and recyclables. On the road we bring all our trash back to camp or to another location appropriately designated for trash disposal.
Basecamp North is a small organization based in Denmark. Our work is driven by passion in it´s purest form and exclusively on a volunteer basis. To pull off something like SKOG™ events, we rely on help from friends and partners. During the event, feel free to contact any of us for assistance, questions or issues of any kind. In camp you can spot us by our CREW shirts. While on any of our guided rides, please contact your guide.
We are committed to deliver an unforgetable event experience and rely on your cooperation.
Welcome to the SKOG™ Family. Stay Safe and Have Fun!
