Project: South Pole  Speed Record 2025

In 2025, I will pursue my biggest dream so far; to set the women speed record to the South Pole. It will be an extreme challenge both physically and mentally.

Get to know me

I have always wanted to explore the wilderness and remote places. In 2018, I travelled to Europe's northernmost point, North Cape, to embark on my first 60-day solo expedition on skis, despite never having skied, slept in a tent during winter, dealt with navigation or been north of Stockholm.

Over the past years, I have been working towards my dream expedition - a speed record attempt in Antarctica. To ensure financials and preparations are in place, the date is set to December 2025.

LIFE BEGINS OUTSIDE OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE

News/blog

I want to be a role model for children and teenagers. To inspire them to have an active lifestyle, reach for their dreams and dare to face their fears. I hope that everyone can get to feel the excitement and joy of achieving a goal.
