[ANON POST] Discreet Campfires?

Can the community help this anon?

I am writing a story set in the far northern part of a fantasy world (think Scandinavia or Alaska - lots of pine forests, mountains, tundra), corresponding roughly to the early/high middle ages (around 900-1100) in terms of technological advancement. What I'm looking for is a way of making fire while remaining undetected by enemies nearby, particularly at night. I've googled a lot of information about Dakota fire holes, but I've got a feeling they wouldn't function with permafrost (or in really rocky mountain soil, for that matter).
