OBS! [2017-12-07]Due sudden severe health issues, I am forced a short break from the journey (we are talking about weeks) to get necessary healthcare. Please visit Facebook-page for latest news. My equipment is left at my furthest hiked point, so I WILL continue!

Norrköping to Kiruna- 1500 km winter hike 2017/2018

 

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 departure is 11th November 2017 and duration is predicted to take ~180 days /26 weeks.
The hike will also be performed for the benefit of Hjärnfonden (Brain Foundation). Many of my closed and loved ones have brain-related health problems and so do I, so the importance of this is on a personal level. As far as we know, I will be the first woman with a disability, to perform this hiking route during winter in Scandinavian history.
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!

 

 


About me

My name is C. Cat Carlson, a disability pensioner living in the beautiful coastal city of Norrköping, Sweden.
I am a gamer with a great passion for outdoors life, travels and photography and I am on a mission: to increase mental health awareness in these areas.

I’m born and have since long, lived with invisible disabilities such as Aspergers Syndrome, ADD, insomnia, severe anxiety and chronical pain (Endometriosis).
This, of course, comes with daily challenges but it has never stopped me from trying to achieve my dreams.
