Börja Vandra!


Pacific crest Trail, south of mount hood

Sugen på att själv börja vandra? Härligt, då har jag bara en sak att säga till dig. Gör det!

Att vandra kan vara den enklaste aktiviteten man kan ägna sig åt. Du behöver inga medlemskap, din kropp är ditt redskap och naturen din lokal. Ändå kan det vara lite svårt att komma igång, att veta vart man ska börja. Går man in på en friluftsbutik eller söker på vandringssidor på nätet blir man lätt överöst med produkter som du ”måste” ha och termer som skaljacka, goretex, vattenpelare, damasker o.s.v. avlöser varandra. Herregud vad betyder de ens?! Och vad vill jag ha för typ av liggunderlag? Tält? Sovsäck?! Mängden av information kan lätt bli överväldigande och det kan kännas enklare att bara strunta i allt.

Så ska det verkligen behöva vara så krångligt? Nej det ska det inte. Och det är det inte. Det är därför jag lagt upp den här sidan. Här hittar du all den grundläggande information du behöver för att ta dig ut på vandring, oavsett om du bara ska vara ute över dagen eller gå på en längre flerdagarstur. När du sedan känner dig bekväm med att vandra och vet vad det handlar om, kan du börja grotta ner dig i ämnet på egen hand.

Låt oss titta närmare på de vanligaste frågorna, som du även bör ställa dig själv och svara på innan du ger dig ut.

Hur börjar jag? – Steg för steg

Vart ska jag gå? – Hitta en vandringsled 

Vad ska jag ha med mig? Packlista och tips

Vad ska jag äta? – info om mat och recept

På Wilderness Stories Pinterest-sida hittar du ytterligare förslag på leder, DIY tips, överlevnadsinfo m.m. under de olika anslagstavlorna.

Lycka till!

Few things taste as good as a cup of coffee made in the wild! After a long day of hiking, paddling, climbing or whatever you prefer to do, when you take a moment to sit down and reflect about the day you just went through, about the things you made, obstacles you have overcome - that's when a simple cup of coffee can taste better than anything else in the world. ☕️💕

Always say yes to trying new stuff! It's by the end of our comfort zone magic starts to happen! 
This past week I've experienced some of the best days this summer. As I got to borrow two kayaks from @kajaksidan and @melkerofsweden, I've been able to try out my new passion for kayaking even more. And the best part - I've also been able to introduced it to some of my friends! This is @pearliepics on our magical sunset/photo shoot kayak trip last night. She was a bit unsteady in the beginning but paddled like a pro by the end of the night. ✨
My preparations for Everest Base Camp continues! In my new blogpost at wilderness-stories.com (link in bio) I've written about the risks being at higher altitude, how to prepare for it and how to act while you're there. Check it out!

It's not about having time - it's about making time.
What are you doing a normal day after work? Going home, cooking food, watching TV? Killing time? Why not bring your dinner and take a drive till you find a beautiful spot close to home instead?

I hope you all have had a really nice weekend! I went out with my boyfriend on my very first boat+camping trip! Jumped in the boat on Friday night and then just went straight out towards the sea until we found this super nice spot on a small island in the Stockholm archipelago. ❤️
It was such a luxury to not have to worry about the weight, so I brought my old super heavy and super big tent - felt like living in a castle after months in a one person tent! 😂
What have you done this weekend? Share your story under the hashtag #mywildernessstory !
