About Cold Skills AB

Your Partner on the Northern Flank

Our Beginnings

Cold Skills started in 2002 (over 20 years ago) with the sole mission to improve how people operate in the harshest conditions on Earth. Particularly, the most northern parts of the Northern Hemisphere.

Our mission has been and always will be the same: help ensure you and your team operate safely, efficiently, and optimally in the arctic, sub-artic and mountainous regions of the world.

Whilst these areas are typically cold – summer, spring, and autumn also present challenges. We cover these too.  

We serve civilians, professionals, organizations, government, armed forces, and more. From individuals to groups of thousands.

Helping you achieve your mission, is our mission.

Our Team & Experience

Cold Skills is run by ex-military commandos. Some hold special forces experience. Having decades of combined experience in both military and civilian settings, our team comprises experts that come from the most northern parts of Sweden, Finland, and Norway. All Cold Skills team members were born, raised, and continue to regularly operate in some of the harshest conditions you can imagine.
