Swedish Mountain

Swedish Mountain

A windy adventurous day in the Swedish mountains. I really enjoy these harsh weather conditions. The windchill factor, poor visibility and the drifting snow makes me feel alive and “out there”. It’s a way to test my level of awareness and how I use my knowledge.

This is where we all come together. It is a place where we gather, no matter our background. It is where we drink our coffee, share our stories and tell about our mistakes.

It’s nice to be on the east coast for a change. I spent time here every year during my youth and I really connect with places like Haväng, Verkeån and Stenshuvud.

A great couple of hours. Food, a dip in the ocean and some sculptures made of sand. A nature reserve worth a visit.

Frosty mornings ❄️ This picture was taken during my first longer Sweden walk from Smygehuk to Ytterhogdal. I spent three months on the road.

Emelie, Peter and I walked on Bohusleden trail this weekend.

Long distance walking

I have done some longer walks in my life. Sweden, Spain and Portugal. Is your next adventure a long walk? Need some inspiration? I'm happy to give you some feedback. Call me on skype, email me or buy me a coffee in Gothenburg and we talk about it :)

Nikkaluokta – Kilpisjärvi

Nordkalottruta or Arctic Trail is a marked hiking trail in the Arctic region of Nordic countries. The trail passes through Øvre Dividal National Park, Reisa National Park, Abisko National Park and Padjelanta National Park as well as the Sulitjelmafjellet and Narvikfjellregions. The entire trail is marked and serviced by mountain huts. Most of the huts will be of the unstaffed type, where you must carry your own food. If, like me, you start the walk in Nikkaluokta and end in Kilpisjärvi you have ~310km (192 miles) of trail to cover and you will only cross 2 roads along the way.

Grövelsjön

This picture is taken in Grövelsjön. Grövelsjön is the southern door to the Swedish mountains. Here, the mountains are gently rounded. The valleys are wide, sparsely covered and easily hiked. Mountain streams with drinkable water wind their way at a gentle pace.

Camino Frances

Mom and me were sitting having breakfast on the stairs to Sacré-Cœur in Paris. It was a wonderful morning and the start of another adventure. We spent two days here before taking the night train to Bayonne and a connecting bus to Saint Jean Pied de Port. We arrived mid-day and got our seashells, passports and map, then we headed out on the trail. 8km later we entered Orisson Refuge and we slept there for the night. Mom has never been away on an adventure as long as this, she did more then great, she was awesome and I had…

Sarek on Skis

Sarek National Park is a national park in the Lapland province, northern Sweden. It borders two other national parks: Stora Sjöfallet and Padjelanta. Sarek is popular with hikers and mountaineers but is not appropriate for beginners. The national park is roughly circular with an average diameter of about 50 kilometres (31.07 mi). It has no marked trails, no accommodations, and only two bridges aside from those in the vicinity of its borders. The delta of the Rapa River is considered one of Europe’s prettiest, and the summit of mount Skierffe (sv) offers an overlook of this ice-covered glacial trough valley.

Öresund loop

My mum and I had three days off and we badly needed some adventure. We grabbed two old bikes and took the train to Malmö. We cycled to the bridge connecting Sweden with Denmark and that signalled the beginning of our adventure. We biked along the Swedish coastline up to Helsingborg and then took the ferry over to Denmark and Helsingör where we had our first night. We sat down on the square for a couple of beers and looked at the people walking past for a while. The town is really nice and I have a lot of memories…

Skåneleden

A wonderful walk between Åstorp and Agusa on Skåneleden, Sweden. The route takes you along small roads and forestry trails. When I lived nearby i often spent a night or two in a shelter along the trail. Distance: 162km. More info at www.en.skaneleden.se

Smygehuk – Ytterhogdal

My first Swedish walk started from Smygehuk on January 3th 2004. I had a ridiculously heavy bag back (32kg or 70.5pounds). I learned a lot on this trip about life on the road, about myself and I met a lot of people at the same time. When I started the walk there was no snow, but it didn’t take long… When I reached Örebro I had to buy snowshoes to enable me to move along the trails in the forest. When I eventually walked into Ytterhogdal I had a cold and I was done! I had been out for 3…

Like a postcard

The Classic King’s Trail starts in Hemavan and ends in Abisko. My friend Niklas and I had some time and wanted to walk this trail and end it with the Fjällräven Classic event in Nikkaluokta. In the end we walked around 550km (342 miles). Along the trail there are a couple of lakes you have to row over. We had a leaking boat one day and that was quite exciting. Overall the trail is lovely and I like it a lot but the best parts of it are above the tree line. In the morning you can have reindeers around…
