About this app

Do you want to really enjoy the Swedish wilderness and spend the night outdoors? Or perhaps you're just looking for a nice place to have a "fika pause" during a hike? There are plenty of hiking shelters all around Sweden, but finding them is usually not easy.

Vindskyddskartan (which means "Shelter map" in Swedish) gives you an easy to use overview of thousands of shelters on a map so you can easily find one near your location. The app also gives you easy access to current and forecasted fire risk and fire ban status, so you know when, where and how you can safely enjoy a campfire and cook food in nature.

The app is subscription based, but you can try it for free for 3 days before paying anything. If you prefer to own your apps, you can make a one-time purchase and have unlimited lifetime access to the app. All purchases are made from within the app. Subscriptions renew automatically unless cancelled at least 24 hours before the next renewal. Active subscriptions are managed from the Google Play app, and of course you may cancel your subscription at any time.

This app shows all beautiful shelters in Sweden in a great way. It's very convenient in usage. Especially cool was the response of the developer(s) after I asked for a feature (the ability to load GPX format track files onto the map so i can easily plan my daily tracks when walking a long route like the Skåneleden): it was added within weeks, i tested it and works like a charm. Absolutely worth the money for the app.

Scam, stealing the the work of a collective group on Facebook gathering and sharing coordinates and information for free. I saw your comment on other review and compared quite a few shelters and there was a lot of duplicates with same images so I stick by what I sad
