Jag föreläser på Utefest!


Jag är otroligt glad att kunna meddela att jag kommer föreläsa om Pacific Crest Trail på festivalen Utefest i Höga kusten i höst! Dessutom kommer jag att ha med mig min utställning med bilder från leden! Festivalen äger rum 8-10 september och är, som arrangören själv utrycker det ”en mötesplats för både nybörjare och elit.

Min Fjällräven Polar video


Sitter just nu på Arlanda och väntar på att få boarda flyget till Göteborg. Imorgon kommer jag som jag tidigare berättat om föreläsa på Scandinavian Photo Expo om Pacific Crest Trail och Fjällräven Polar. Till detta har jag satt ihop en video som jag självklart måste dela med er också! – – –

Fjällräven Polar 2017


Gnistrande sol, snöflingor som yr. Sylvassa berg som dramatiskt sträcker sig mot den klarblå himlen, milslång sikt över den arktiska tundran. 300 km vildmark och det enda som bryter naturens tystnad är dina egna andetag, hundarnas tassar som springer över snön och släden som susar fram under din kropp. Utrustad med den bästa av utrustning,

Imorgon startar Fjällräven Polar!


I mitten av december, några dagar innan julafton, fick jag det glädjande beskedet att jag som en av två svenskar och som juryns val skulle få delta i 2017 års upplaga av Fjällrävens Polar – en ca 300 km lång resa genom nordligaste Sverige med hundspann! Sedan dess har jag inte fått veta särskilt mycket mer, den enda infon jag har fått

Visiting a big city doesn't have to mean shopping, nightclubs or fancy restaurants. There's so many cities that have a lot of outdoor activities to offer as well! In Stockholm for example, you can take a short bus ride to the archipelago where you can go hiking, kayaking, climbing, sailing or just enjoy the beautiful nature.
Do you have any favourite city when it comes to outdoor activities?
There's so many ways to explore nature. Hiking has been my biggest passion until now, but I've also become curious about other outdoor activities. Right now I'm in the progress of writing some articles to my website wilderness-stories.com about how to do if you want to try something new. 
What kind of outdoor activities would you like to learn and read about?
No dream is ever too big. There's always ways to make them happen. #dreambig
My Everest base camp project in October is a project where I want to prove that. I like to think that even if we don't have the highest salary, we can make a dream that includes the highest mountain in the world become reality. Therefor I try to investigate the budget options to get up there. In my latest blog post at wilderness-stories.com (link in bio) I've written about the costs I'm expecting and how I'm planning to save fore it. There's also some tips how you can start saving yourself! Check it out!
Picture from Yosemite and my trip to the U.S. in June.
Someone once asked me if I didn't loose track of the days hiking the PCT. My answer was 'No, it was actually the opposite, I could easily recall the days, even months back. We just didn't call them by the name we use in "normal life". In the wild we simply referred to them after what made them special.' This is for example a pic from "Fog Day" (or as all the others would call it, May 6) last year. 
PCT, mile ~426

Pic from PCT mile ~1973, in one of the weirdest landscapes I've ever seen: the lava fields in Oregon.
Passing the 2600-mile marker on the PCT was a big thing for me. Being the last 100-marker with only 50 mile to go it was clear that I was gonna complete the entire trail. Now I've seen that I've also passed 2600 followers here on Instagram! I'm so happy for all of you and that you want to follow me on my adventures! Hearing from you, meeting you and hear your own stories is what keeps me going - so from the bottom I'm my heart, THANK YOU! ❤️
One year ago today, on June 5th 2016, I summited my very first mountain, Mount Whitney on a side trail of the PCT. With its 14505 ft / 4421 meter it counts as the highest mountain in the "lower 48" (the U.S. except the 2 states of Alaska and Hawaii). It was a bit tricky in the snow, but we all made it! I know there's a lot more snow in the Sierras this year so I wish all the thruhikers of 2017 all the best and also want to send them a reminder to stay safe. If Whitney feels to risky when you pass it, you can always do it later. The mountains won't go anywhere. ❤️
If you have a dream or something you really want to do, it can be a little bit scary to make it happen. We make up ideas about why now isn't the right time, why it's better to do it later. But the truth is that there's no better time than right now. Don't push forward your dreams. Make them happen. ☀️
Me after my first full day of kayaking last week. It was a bit scary and on this pic I'm super tired but so happy at the same time because I finally did it! And it was so much fun!
If there's something you feel like trying, just do it. Don't make up excuses for why now isn't the best time. Yesterday I rented a kayak and crossed through the islands in the Stockholm archipelago for the very first time. I moved here 13 years ago and I can't believe it's took me so long to do this! 
Good side with the story though: It's never to late.
