Nature guide and owner of Kolarbyn Eco Logde and Vindros AB
Born and raised in the Stockholm area (1971) but found my senses and moved out into the wilderness with my family quite a few years back.
What is the best part of working with Kolarbyn?
First of all I love being outdoors so this is the dream job for me. Second best is of course the guests: to have the opportunity to meet and great so many people, with different backgrounds and stories, and show them this amazing area of the world.
I’m also running an adventure and guide company called Swenture. I have also been in sales (media) and been working as a florist. In my spare time I have been involved in educating kids about nature and I’m active in the civil defence.
Interests and hobbies?
Trail running and everything outdoorsy especially with my family and my dog Soda. And I also have a passion for meeting other people that share the same hobby, off-road driving with my Defender, hiking and travel.
Favorite time of year?
Since we have 4 amazing seasons I love them all as long as the weather behaves. Proper winters with ice and snow, warm sunny summer days, clear and cool days in autumn or the freshness of spring flowers doesn’t really matter.
I love cooking, preferably I cook over the open flames in a beautiful location!
Favorite area in Sweden?
I have always loved the archipelago outside Stockholm but now since we moved inland to Västmanland I have found some really new good places; a warm sunny day in the marshlands with their amazing flora and herbal smells or the untouched old intensely green forest with lovely huge pine trees.
Favorite area to visit?
Since I have a passion for the about twenty-five thousand islands east of Stockholm I must say that to experience the sunset from a warm, softly rounded boulder is amazing. But I don’t mind the soft fluffy moss beneath a 200-hundred year old tree, listening to a creek close by to the smells of the early morning.
My best tip to visit when you stay in Kolarbyn
Stay at least 2 nights for the best experience and take a hike in the stunning “Ormdalsstigen” 20 minutes from Kolarbyn.
