How to start a fire when it is freezing cold?

The first thing you need to do would be to find trees, tinder, and small bushes to make a fire pit. Find a clear area where you can dig a small hole in the ground and surround it with rocks. If you notice the terrain is extremely cold or frozen, then we recommend you build the pit with stones.



You can use fire starters available on our website to ensure you get the right spark, although be patient as in the cold, it takes a little while to get the spark you need to get the fire started. You can use dry wood shavings, bark from dead trees to get the fire started. If you have an old newspaper you can use that as well, these two will work great to get the fire started.
