Det finns platser kvar på min resa i Juni med expeditionsresor och tidningen IFORM! Behöver du kanske ett äventyr, eller något meningsfullt att träna för? Kilimanjaro är ett av mina favoritberg. Man vandrar från djungel till glaciärkantad bergstopp på bara 6 dagar! Det är världens högsta fristående berg, och från toppen kan man se ut över Afrikas stäpper. Ska man bara bestiga ett berg i sitt liv är det Kilimanjaro. Det är… Läs mer

Patagonia. There was magic in the air. I inhaled it and it will stay with me forever. And I will have to go back. The place made such a big impression I’m still overwhelmed. So I might have to go back just to check it again – and take more photos. And climb more mountains. I have been climbing since I was 14 years old, and suddenly I felt like a child… Läs mer

How much you enjoy reaching the summit of a mountain is in direct proportion to how much you had to fight to reach it, as well as how much time and dreams you invested. As have my 7 summits quest grown during the years. One of my team mates said he wanted to be on my rope team just to see a 7-summiteer finish. And that´s the first time I fully realised;… Läs mer

Have you had the experience of your body being ‘happy’? From doing something you really like? I had it yesterday, climbing up the steep snowslope to high camp. Suddenly the feeling of weakness and illness left. As if the body said ‘I got this’. The experiences of climbing steep snowslopes took over. I didnt know until then if this mountain would be possible. Now I think it is. My cough is still… Läs mer

there is a strength in numbers in a climbing team, if not too many. Ot might sound strange but most important for each climber is to be ‘selfish’. You have to take care of yourself or you will be a liability to the team. If you are warm, well replenished and safe you will be helping the team to be stronger. But you can’t be strong all the time, and that’s when… Läs mer

Yesterday I woke up to the sound of snow fallling on the tent fly, one of my favourite sounds. Then the feeling of something being wrong. It was probably wrong the day before too, or I’m too optimistic. While inhanling I coughed a deep painful knife-sensation in my chest. My body felt tender and a little feverish. Not good. Last weeks cold was back and lot worse. The old me might have… Läs mer

there was almost too many impressions in one day. First the luck of flying out in a weather window, inside a russian freight airplane. Then landing on blue ice. Anarctica. Stepping out of the plane in the big altitude boots, thickest down jacket and goggles was like stepping onto a new planet, not knowing how the ground would feel under the feet. Icy col and very slippery we all shuffled around with… Läs mer

As often on expeditions, life is defined by weather. We leave control behind and give in to what nature presents to us. It gives us wind. It was a bumpy landing in Punta Arenas, one of the most southern cities in the world. The wind was howling around the airport and our organizer said we need a weather window of at least 13 hours to be able to land on the ice… Läs mer

Come on a good adventure! In april 2016 you can join me on a beautiful trek/climb at high altitude in remote Rolwaling village in Nepal. You will experience the beautiful scenery of the majestic Himalayas including the mountains Gaurishankar, Tashi Laptsa and Dorje Lakpa. The trekking route wanders through alpine forests with blooming rhododendron flowers and beautiful native villages. We will trek and climb a small mountain, Yalung Ri 5500m, in this… Läs mer

Varför låta det som varit definera resten av livet? 2016 kommer bli ett fantastiskt år, om du vill. Jag tror att man till stor del kan välja hur man vill leva, hur ett år ska bli, och skapa något att se fram emot. Jag tror det är nyttigt att utmana sig själv, att söka nära-livet-upplevelser och att inte vänta! Behöver du sällskap av likasinnade, en liten knuff eller en s.k ‘galen’ idé… Läs mer

There are memories that last forever, and there is mud that will never wash away. The Bergans pants on the photo above will never be clean again. Carstensz was a challange equipmentwise. We had to keep out gear at a weight minimum to be able to travel fast and easy through the jungle and tricky terrain. It was extremely wet and humid and some gear was never dry for over 2 weeks….

Sometimes, everything comes together in perfect timing. I don’t know why if it wasn’t meant to be. I think I had the best trip of my life. That’s not to say a little. It’s hard to explain. One thing that made it so special might have been the lack of expectations. I tried to read up on the expedition, but there was not a lot to be found. Just that it was… Läs mer

Text in english below the photos Titeln är en av förhållningsreglerna på nästa expedition. Jag ska till Papua och bestiga mt. Carstensz pyramid, 4884m. Det är det högsta berget på den oceaniska kontinenten. Det är min 6’e av de 7 summits. Jag var på väg redan förra året, men mitt knä var inte helt återhämtat från en titthålsoperation. Det är 110km till berget enkel väg, så det är viktigt att ha bra… Läs mer

Yoga. You don’t go anywhere. You stay on the yoga mat and travel inwards. You breathe, you concentrate. You meet your body and things you maybe forgot about. Things that were important. To be able to remember what is important you have to stop moving, stop running with your mind and body. The movement and procrastination will take too much of your focus, and you will not see what is underneath the… Läs mer

I believe life is as simple as what you pay attention to becomes your reality. If you read newspapers and follow the news on the internet then it’s easy to get obsessed and absorbed by the latest news of never ending crisis. Same if you follow the latest fashion blogs and instagrams, or celebrities on instagram. That will be what your world revolves around. If you focus on what other people are… Läs mer

The last month or more I have been constantly on the road, giving one or two presentation and motivational talks every day. I love my job and it gives me a lot of joy, but it’s also very challenging. To be able to do my job and prepare for upcoming expeditions it’s extremely important that I take well care of myself (or – isn’t it important anyway?) It’s important because it’s not… Läs mer

I almost fell out of the taxi at the airport. Somehow the heel of the shoe wedged itself into the cobblestones. You probably wouldn’t even think those heels were high. But they were high enough to change my world for a day. In one day I did a couple of motivational talks including the dress code “business”. So I had dusted of a short dark blue dress from deep inside the closet…. Läs mer
