Smuggler’s Cave, Salo

Salo, southern Finland. More than an hour away by car, and we've been in the forest for an hour now. The cave is nowhere to be found. I have coordinates, but in the wrong coordinate system and Google isn't co-operating to interpret them in the right way.

Finally, however, Janne sees the cave as we walk in circles in the hills in the forest.

Rosvoluola [1,2], or the smuggler's cave, turns out to be interesting. Once again we find ourselves in a cave that is large by Finnish standards. The actual cave is said to be 25 meters, all side channels included, but there is a long route under boulders leading to it, perhaps another 20 meters, and there are crack systems running horizontal and vertical and on many levels.

The cave can be easily reached by driving a forest road here, and the coordinates of the cave itself can be found here.

Paragliding on a Snowmobile, Not Your Average Slednecks

Paragliding on a Snowmobile, Not Your Average Slednecks

They call themselves the Stunt Freaks Team for a reason. Turns out it's actually possible to combine paragliding and snowmobiling into the same sport. After smashing the sled on the first trial, this band of extreme-lifestyle lunatics put it back together again and successfully succeeded flying it off the cliff in Rikgranson, Sweden. Apparently using a snowmobile on the ground is too mainstream these days.

This Rope Swing Between Two Trams Looks Pretty Fun

This rope is set up between two trams at a ski resort in Sweden. Usually, a video of rope swing includes someone slamming into the side of a hill. This one, however, is a little more eloquent and beautiful. The only question that remains is would you make the jump?

What Happens When Your Boat Breaks Down in An Iceberg Field?

What Happens When Your Boat Breaks Down in An Iceberg Field?

We are proud to introduce a new series highlighting some of the wild, crazy, or completely unbelievable moments from this past winter filming TGR's new film, Rogue Elements. In this episode, we found ourselves with Johnny Collinson, Angel Collinson, and Sam Smoothy on a down day. Together with the crew, they make their way up a narrow bay to the terminus of a glacier. When the boat breaks down they have to be creative to get of out this icy situation.  Rogue Elements is presented by
