    At Santa Claus' office

    November 8 in Finland ⋅ ⛅ -13 °C

    46 days before Christmas, we went to visit Santa Claus in his official office in Finnland to deliver him our wishes for Christmas for this year:

    - we wish that everybody will do something good for the environment in the upcoming year

    - we wish that the world leaders will agree on solutions to fight climate change

    - we wish our projects regeneration.expedition and trash-waste-solutions to be successful

    - and we strongly wish peace for Chile and the entire world, because we can’t think on building a better world if we don’t find peace at home in the first place

    Camping in a freezer

    November 6 in Finland ⋅ ☁️ -17 °C

    To be honest, we didn’t expect to experience harsh winter conditions in November. ❄️ But here it is: temperatures down to -25 degrees make it really really challenging to live in the van: EVERYTHING is frozen: tomato sauce, cans with food, the dish washing detergent, our shampoo and body lotions, the windows and doors of the car, and even the gas for cooking 🙈!! We put our water in the fridge to try to prevent it from freezing (which works only fine for a day 😅). Luckily our car works perfectly and the park heater keeps us warm! And we are really happy to be able to go into Cafés or hotels to heat up, have wifi and even Sauna! But we absolutely love the snow covered landscape and are surprised about how beautiful camping in a freezer can be! Or how Johnny said: in our Upa-Igloo 🚗❄️

    Sustainable advantage: we dont need to turn on our fridge to keep our food cold 🤣. Actually we use it off to keep them warm xD

    Riding a husky sledge

    November 3 in Finland ⋅ ☁️ -5 °C

    A true Lapland classic and a little dream come true. We didn’t know that it was possible so early in the year, but we are really happy we had the chance to go for a ride with the wild and strong animals 💪

    Reindeers everywhere

    October 31 in Norway ⋅ ☁️ -11 °C

    Leaving Norway after being in this beautiful country for more than 1 month. It gave us a really nice farewell by putting many reindeer on the side on the road, so we would never cross to Finland 😅. Wonderful experience too see these beautiful animals so close.

    Stabbursdalen Nationalpark

    October 29 in Norway ⋅ ☁️ -1 °C

    By surprise we came by the informative @Stabbursnes_naturhus, where we got the hint for a nice trekking in the national park. Hiking 6km through darkness and snow, we didn’t really know what was expecting us here in the world’s northernmost pinewood. Then - the most beautiful surprise and the most cosy hut, where we spent 2 nights in the middle of nature in a winter wonderland. We saw a lot of wildlife (reindeer, salmon, eagle, squirrel, otters, a fox and many birds) drank water from the pure river and hiked around. This will definitely be one of our most beautiful memories of the trip!

    Nordkapp, we did it!!!

    October 28 in Norway ⋅ 🌬 0 °C

    We have made it to the northernmost point of the European continent, 71degrees🌐🔭 north! After seing the most amazing northern lights🌈 on the way there, we spent a really scary and stormy night at Nordkapp (winds of 70-100km/h🌪).

    Luckily we were not alone and made friends with our swiss🇨🇭 neighbours Martin and Lukas, which we invited to stay in our bus for wine🍷 and good conversations😃 in the night 😎.

    From now on.... we will only go SOUTH ⬇️

    Real Artic driving!!!

    October 27 in Norway ⋅ ☀️ -9 °C

    What an incredible day. After a cold night 🌚of -9 celcius, we woke up and start driving 🚙to the northernmost point in Europe. The road suddenly went down to -17 ❄️degrees C!!!! But not only the cold was the highlight of this day. We saw a group of at least 50 🐬dolphins hunting and a friendly fox 🐕near our upa-chalupa. Is nice to see how life finds the way to be even in the most freezing conditions!Read more

    Lofoten

    October 22 in Norway ⋅ 🌧 5 °C

    Lofoten seems like a place for us! Mountains meet the sea, lots of climbing and ski-touring options, beautiful beaches and a surprising underwater world. We spent our days between hiking, diving, thinking about climbing, visiting the Viking museum and sitting in cosy bars and cafes working on our projects. The best night was when we accidentally popped into a concert night in a pub where we met Hanna and Joe, a sympathetic American couple who are living in Lofoten with their son for a year. They invited us to stay at their place for 2 nights, which we gladly accepted :) Had some interesting conservations about the environment, outdoor sports, arts and Joes research projects. Thank you for your hospitality!Read more
