Fjällräven Polar 2017


Den 3 april 2016 tog jag mina första steg på Pacific Crest Trail och påbörjade mitt hittills största äventyr. Nu är det klart att även den 3 april 2017 kommer bli en dag att minnas. Då kommer jag som juryns val delta för Sverige i Fjällräven Polar!

Fjällräven Polar är ett äventyr på hundspann som äger rum 3-8 april  norr om polcirkeln. Det startar i Signaldalen i Norge, strax nordväst om Treriksröset (Sveriges nordligaste punkt) och tar sig sedan via en gammal samisk handelsled 300 km söderut genom Sverige till sjön Väkkäräjärvi.

Äventyret som arrangeras en gång per år har plats för ett begränsat antal deltagare, men det går inte att köpa en plats utan vilka som får åka avgörs dels via en omröstning och dels av en jury från Fjällräven. I år kommer två representanter från tretton olika länder/landsgrupper att delta, det vill säga totalt 26 personer och konkurrensen om platserna har varit stenhård. Totalt har över 1300 ställt upp i tävlingen varav ca 100 för Sverige. I omröstningen slutade jag på en sjunde plats med totalt 1 172 röster. Vann gjorde Olof Garnegård med hela 20 258 röster!

Men trots att jag inte vann omröstningen så kommer jag alltså att få åka med som juryns val! Det känns såklart helt otroligt ärofyllt och hedrande att få just juryns röst i detta åtråvärda event! Deras motivering till vilka de sökte var personer som ”reflekterar Fjällrävens kärnvärden och de grundläggande idéer som finns bakom Fjällräven Polar, att inspirera andra att spendera mer tid ute i naturen och att visa att erfarenhet och bakgrund inte är avgörande för ett lyckat äventyr. Istället är det passion, engagemang och ens vilja att prova.” Detta är precis vad jag har velat förmedla med den här sidan och det var därför jag startade den för drygt ett år sedan. Att få andra att våga sig ut i vildmarken, även om de inte har någon tidigare erfarenhet. Att inspirera och motivera. Det känns därför extra kul att bli utvald att få åka på de grunderna!

Den 3e april går som sagt äventyret av stapeln och självklart kommer jag rapportera från det, både innan, under (hur mycket beror på mottagningen bland bergen) och efter! Du kan följa det här på bloggen, under kategorin Fjällräven Polar, men också på min instagram: wildernessstories

Yesterday I arrived to one of the most beautiful cities I’ve ever seen - Biarritz, France. I’m gonna stay here a week while joining a surfcamp with @surfakademin . I have never ever stand on a surf board before so this is gonna be a big challenge for me! 
The stop here is part of a longer trip that I’m doing right now, where I will cross Europe by train with a interrail pass. This for a story for @utemagasinetsverige 
Along the way I’m doing some stops where I will fulfill some of my dreams that I had for a while and this is the first one! Learn how to surf. 🏄‍♀️🤙

Wilderness Stories Recommends: THE HIGH COAST, SWEDEN
.
☀️I really love this place, the nature is so special and it offers so many ways to discover it. You can hike, camp, climb, bike, go kayaking etc. My absolute favorite is to climb at the @viaferrata that is located by the foot of Skuleberget.
.
If you wanna experience the High Coast and all it have to offer, I can highly recommend to visit the outdoor festival @utefest.se ! The festival is located in @Friluftsbyn and during three days you can try a lot of activities (with guides if you wish), listening to inspiring talks, go to outdoor related classes, meet others outdoor enthusiasts, watch movies and so much more! 
This year the festival will take place between 7-9 September. 
I’ll be there off course, will you?
🏕🛶🌲🚴‍♀️🧘‍♀️🧗‍♀️☀️💕

Back in Stockholm after ten intense but great days in the Finish archipelago. 250 km on a bike and I don’t know how many in kayak, by foot, on horse, by boat, on SUP board and much more. The Archipelago trail sure has so much to offer and I can’t wait to share more from my trip with you! .
I also want to send some love and gratitude to all of you who I’ve met and/or helped me in any way around the trail! 🙏💕

Yesterday I started my 250km long bike trip along the ‘Archipelago Trail’ outside Turku, Finland. Here outside the cathedral in Turku. It’s my first longer trip on a bike and if you wanna see how it goes - keep an eye on my stories! 😘
Let the adventure begin!

The extreme heat that’s been in Sweden the last weeks has caused a lot of problems and there’s a lot of forest fires going on in the country. Therefore there’s now a fire ban which means it’s not aloud to light any kinds of fires what so ever! Not even in your own garden or on gas stoves. It’s extremely dry and even the slightest spark could cause a fire and huge damage.
.
So what are you gonna eat if you wanna go hiking and don’t want cold food? One idea is to bring your regular freeze dried meal - and hot water for it in a thermos! Works just as fine as boiling it outdoors! ✨👌😋

It’s adventure time! Working two more days at the office, then the adventures begin! This weekend I’ll leave for my bike trip in the Finish archipelago and right after that I’ll set out for one month interrailing through European! Can’t wait!!
.
I’m still trying to figure out the details about the Europe trip. If you know any place I should visit, please let me know!
.
I wanna be spontaneous, but one thing I know is that I’m gonna try to take as many “scenic routes” as possible to make the trips between places an experience and adventure too. Like this, this pic is from the train between Locarno and Lauterbrunnen in Switzerland last year. That train ride was the most amazing trip I’ve ever done. I just couldn’t stop staring out the window, with my mouth open constantly forming the word “wooooaw”. If you haven’t seen my pics from Switzerland yet, check the link in my bio!

5000 followers!!! OMG, I can’t believe it! I’m so happy for all of you that follows me and keeps inspiring me to continue with what I’m doing! From the bottom of my heart: THANK YOU!
🙏❤️❤️❤️🙏
.
Getting these many followers also means that I’m halfway to 10K, which is a personal goal for me! Getting that many followers would unlock some features, for example the “swipe up” function in stories which would make it much easier to share links with you. So if you know someone you think should follow me, feel free to help by tagging them below! 💕

New post! | Having a vacation and don’t know what to do about it? Or did this weekend passed too fast and you’re feeling like doing something extra the next? 
Then I want to recommend the North Face Mountain Festival that takes place next weekend! It’s an outdoor festival with loads of activities to try out, everything from hiking to climbing - for both beginners and experts!
.
This year, the festival will take place in Italy, but last year it was in Switzerland and I had the pleasure going there and experience both the country and the festival. And it was amazing! I couldn’t almost believe how many different kinds of beauty there is in one such small country. One day I was kayaking in the most beautiful lake, the other I was walking on a glacier not too far away from that very lake. Wanna see? Check out the gallery I posted from this trip the other day!

#flashbackfriday : The heat wave that’s been in Sweden the last week sure brings back some memories from the PCT and the Mojave desert. There the temperature during the day easy went over 30°C. And of top of that we hiked about 20 miles a day with probably close to 20 kg on our back because of all the extra water we had to carry in that dry area.
.
To deal with it, we hiked early in the mornings, rested in the shade (under joshua trees, bridges or as here - windmills) during the day and then hiked in the evening and night. Feels like a pretty good way of dealing with these 30°C+ days we’re having now in Sweden as well!
