Inspirational Outdoors is about adventures, large and small. Our purpose is to inspire and help you to get outdoors. Explore your surroundings in a new way, connect with people, create social networks and opportunities for the future.
The Reasons Why
Gratitude, happiness and friendship. I know I’m on the right path when I show people in the right direction and see them connect with the surrounding scenery and with each other; when they feel happiness and, for instance, answer the cold wind gusts with a smile instead of hiding in their clothes with empty eyes.
Regarding my business. Imagine a peach. The outer skin is what I do (guiding, presentations etc), the flesh is how I do it. The core of everything, the answer to why, is in the stone. To be a juicy peach, or for me to have a healthy business, we need to pay attention to all of the above.
I give you the opportunity to see the details in your backpack and the surrounding nature while traveling with me. I help you to raise your head when you’re tired and in return I have someone to appreciate the scenery, the wind gust and morning coffee with. And that, my friend, is why I do it.
Through time nature has given me so much: wonderful scenery, the whitest snow, the purest water, lovely days in our archipelagos, magical mountains, wildlife to admire from a distance, and grass perfectly bent by the wind. It also served me sunsets and firewood, tailwind to enjoy and headwinds to endure, rain that made me damp and wet, but also sun that made me dry and warm. Above all, nature taught me to appreciate things the way they are and to work with them, instead of against them. As a father I want to be able to give my daughter the same and, therefore, I took a stand and decided to never fly for a guide job, ever.

Follow your nose
Daniel Vilhelmsson, 31, from Kristianstad in Sweden, has bedded down in old factories and goat sheds, but he once spent a December day walking with a friend he had met on couchsurﬁng.org. “We followed the old railway line out of town,” he says, “and when you’ve a choice of two directions, you just choose left or right.”
