Sweden, march-april 2022
My first real long thru-hike and I did it in winter! I skied the famous Kings Trail in Swedish Lapland in 26 days with the help of my two Alaskan huskies Linkka and Odezza. 460km worth of impressive mountains, fierce winds, heavenly white fields, and pushing personal boundaries.

Swedish lapland, april 2021
4 days and about 60km in the Swedish mountains. My first solo winter hike on skis, with my Alaskan husky and pulk sled. It was beautiful, challenging, too warm, and the best bonding time with my dog Linkka. And it all happened about 400km above the Arctic Circle. A true winter exploration!
Sweden, aPRIL 2019
Sledding 330km across the arctic wilderness with a team of 6 highly trained sleddogs and a bunch of like minded 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!
Nepal, november 2017
My first big hiking trip abroad took me to Nepal, to the Annapurnas. The 186km long trail with its 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.
My first ever solo overnight hike was done on the first day of this trail. I ended up learning very valuable lessons about hiking, backpacking, and myself thru this 820 km across Estonia. I hiked the trail in sections with my dog Luna and occasionally with my family and friends over the course of 3 years.
