Norrköping to Kiruna- 1500 km winter hike 2017/2019


The goal is to do a winter hike, with a sled from my residential city Norrköping, south in Sweden, to Kiruna, in the most northern parts of Sweden. The aimed duration is predicted to take ~180 days /26 weeks.
The hike will also be performed for the benefit of Hjärnfonden (Brain Foundation). Mental health awareness and brain research are still not enough funded, yet it is so important for the development of society and everyone’s health.
The hike to Kiruna is my first official and public journey, of hopefully many, in the goal, to visit all of the world’s colder climate areas. The reason I want to do this is because I am a cold-nerd and this is a since long time dream of mine Plus, where there is snow, there are no snakes!
