Meet a likeminded local – you two have a lot in common!

Johan Stenevad

Tourist entrepreneur, 52 years old

The distinct seasons of the north are one of the things I love. From deep snow and –20 C in the middle of February to a +20 C swim in Torne River 6 months later. The untouched land with hardly any people makes you feel the mighty power of our nature. Imagine standing on a frozen wetland with an open fire close to the forest ridge where the coffee pot is boiling while looking for the Northern Lights, and suddenly it start painting the sky in green, accompanied by billions of stars. This touches your soul and you will probably never forget this feeling!

    Explore the frozen sea

    It was with some trepidation that I joined my first snowmobile tour into what looked like a frozen alien landscape. A place where no sensible person should tread. Sounds dangerous? Let me explain, I am a sailor. Happiest with a full main and perfectly trimmed genoa and standing on a heaving timber deck. Preferably somewhere tropical.
