What is open-air life?
Open-air life, or friluftsliv as it’s called in Scandinavia, is a philosophical lifestyle that revolves around finding joy in nature without pressure to achieve or compete. Just like there is slow food, slow parenting, and slow entertainment, friluftsliv is a form of slow nature. It is about embracing simplicity, resisting consumerism, and living in a way that is sustainable to both ourselves and the planet. It is the kind of life that transcends generations and connects us deeply with the land that sustains us. And it has the power to heal. Millions of people in the Nordic countries practice friluftsliv and pass the custom down to their children as a way to build a healthy family culture. Are you ready to join them?
