April 2019
Fjällräven Polar, Sweden

Sledding 330km across the arctic wilderness with a team of 6 highly trained sleddogs and a bunch of likeminded adventurers across the globe.  These 4 days in the tundra literally changed my life. Being inspired by the arctic challenges and the sled dogs I moved to Swedish Lapland and started working as a sled dog guide myself!

November 2018
Annapurna Circuit, Nepal

My first big hiking trip abroad took me to Nepal, to the Annapurnas. The trail with it's people, culture and constant views to 8000+ meters high mountains took my breath away. Figuratively and literally because crossing the 5400m high Thorung La Pass was quite the challenge! I was lucky to share this trip with my Mother who celebrated her 50th birthday on the trail.
