My Fjällräven Polar Video

Time flies and this weekend I’ll go to Gothenburg to talk about PCT and Fjällräven Polar at Scandinavian Photo Expo in Mölndal (my talk is 11-12am at friday 12). For this I have put together my own video from my Polar adventure and of course I have to share it with you too as well!

Fjällräven Polar 2017

The sun is shing, snowflakes spinning around in the air. Razor sharp mountains dramatically reaches towards the clear blue sky, Arctic tundra as fa you can see. 300 kilometres wilderness and the only thing that breaks the silence of nature is your own breath, the dog’s paws running across the snow and the whizzing of the sled under

Follow your heart. If it gives you a sign of what it want, don’t start thinking about weather you should or not - just do it! Yesterday me and some friends walked by some kayaks just when the sun was set and the sky looked amazing. Soon someone asked the question we all was thinking, “should we go for a trip”?
Just a few minutes later we were all in the water and got the most amazing trip. 🌅
Don’t think. Just do it.

A while ago, I received 2 T-shirt’s from @thenorthface with a letter saying that they were happy that I’m a person that keeps inspiring the new generation of women and that one of the t-shirts was for me and the other one was for me to give to someone who inspires me. 
Today I met the woman that’s been on my mind since I got it: my lovely friend @pwallefelt ❣️
Togehter we climbed Kilimanjaro this spring and this weekend we will start working on a new project that hopefully will take us even higher! .
The initiative #shemovesmountains is a initiative from @thenorthface that raising up the voices of woman who are pushing boundaries in all areas of exploration. 👊💕

Dear followers, Today I am launching a new project I've been working on for awhile and I am challenging all of you to be part of it! 😉😘
The project is a social media challenge called #BringYourOwnChallenge and it works like this: 
1. Bring your own coffee cup / lunchbox / water bottle / bag etc and say no to single-use products.
2. Post a picture of the product you’re saying NO to and tag #BringYourOwnChallenge. .
This will create a gallery of the products we’re saving from becoming trash, simply by saying no to them and bringing our own. .
#BringYourOwnChallenge is a project with the purpose to highlight how much trash we’re actually consuming in our daily life - and how easy we all can do something about it. .
So please, accept the challenge and help me spread the word

The Kings Trail, “Kungsleden”, outside Hemavan in northern Sweden last year.
For the first time in what feels like forever I don’t have any trips outside the country planned for the next months. Thinking that I should use the time to see what more Sweden has to offer! Do you have any good recommendations of adventures in this country? North, west, east south, I want to discover all parts of this beautiful country!

Last day and last pic from Kilimanjaro for now. This last day the trail goes back into the rainforest where it started and we’re heading out through Mweka gate. 
The trails was tough, but still amazing at the same time. I feel strong. Both in my body and in my soul. I still don’t know where the path I’m walking will take me next, but I’m sure it has something exciting coming up!
