Since moving to Finland several years ago, I have been most interested in the north-woods environment. The plants, the trees, the animals, the wild foods, the resources, the climate etc. Since I am an aspiring woodsman and have a Monday-through-Friday, nine-to-five desk job, I can’t be out in the field every day, unfortunately. Thankfully, there are resources like YouTube which help me to get my outdoor fix and satisfy my craving for knowledge. The following YouTube channels focus on the northern woods and are based in several different areas. If you haven’t visited them before and are interested in the boreal forest/taiga/northern woods, check them out!
From west to east:
- phreshayr (“Far North Bushcraft and Survival”) (Alaska)
- AmericanGrouch (Minnesota)
- JMBushcraft (“Jack Mountain Bushcraft Journal”) (Maine)
- KaramatWW (“Karamat Wilderness Ways”, with Mors Kochanski)
- OzaawaaMigiziNini (“Canadian Bushcraft”)
- hobbexp (“Swedish Bushcraft”)
- Andersbork (“Rob’s Bushcraft Channel”)
- MVsBushCraft (“Urban Bushcraft”)
I hope you enjoy these videos as much as I do. By the way, if YOU have such a YouTube channel (or know of others) and I have not listed it here, let me know, and I’ll take a look!
