Last weekend was our first MTB weekend at the mountain. We arranged guided MTB tours Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The first two days were sunny and windy with great views, and on the third day the fog was all over the mountain – magical! A lovely weekend with lovely participants!

In fact – this was so much fun, and the response afterwards huge, so we decided to do this again. Now we have even more dates available for reservation online!

Today we had our first event of the season – a wellness weekend in collab with Alexandra Running Club and Yogaro. Together we were able to offer a day with running, yoga, hiking and health talks. We’re doing this again in September! Some of the guests today has already signed up – and so can you!

During Easter we went out kayaking for two days. It was so still on the lakes, not a single wave. Hopefully we’ll get more of these calm days this summer.

During Monday and Tuesday I was in Gothenburg for a meeting with some of the other people involved in the Adventure Travel Summit which is taking place in September. I’ll be hosting one of the Pre Summit Adventures. Looking forward. Gothenburg is the second largest city in Sweden – but it’s still quite cosy.

A few days ago I held a lecture and workshop about sustainable tourism during Earth Week in Vadstena. It was interesting to hear the locals discuss the development in this area. Not all tourism is good, and we want to discuss what we want to do in the future. Also, if we want to reach the climate goals we can’t continue to fly as much as we do today.

I have so many thoughts about this and what I’ve done so far is that I’ve reduced my flight trips with 94% and changed my marketing – now only towards people arriving here by car or train. I also work more with partners that share the same philosophy.

This week have most been about book keeping, so when weekend came we packed the backpacks and headed to the woods.
It was foggy yesterday and it kept raining the whole day. But it’s kind of mystical when it’s like that. We made some pizza by the campfire and slept under the tarp. During the night it started to snow, and when we woke up the sun was shining and the skies were clear!
Went for a cold dip in the lake, made some tea over the fire and headed back home after lunch. Short but lovely vacay!

Need a reason? If you rent a tent you can go camping in a ski slope and be the first one in line when they open the next day!

  

I’m arranging a wellness weekend with a yogi and a runner later this spring! This product will be held in Swedish, so I’ll continue this post in Swedish!

Så kul att äntligen kunna presentera den här helgen som görs tillsammans med två härliga tjejer! Jag med Woods & Water, Ulrika med Yogaro och Alexandra Running Club går ihop för att genomföra en gemensam tränings- och hälsohelg på Omberg i vår – med fokus på att må-bra! Det är alltså inte en träningshelg där vi ska pressa för att prestera utan en helg för avkoppling, för att hitta glädjen i träningen, få balans och koppla av i naturen!

Past week the snow disappeared completely. It’s been like spring in most parts of Sweden, even far up north.  I took the mountainbike out for a ride on the mountain – lovely! But a bit sad to be able to do this in mid-February…

What’s up at work then? Launched the events we’re having with Elles Utemat this summer, worked with the upcoming workshop for Eart Week and some of the tours. Next week I’ll hopefully be able to announce two more products in collab with some other ladies.

In May we’re arranging a weekend with MTB – looking forward! 🙂

 

Love February! The sun is back and it’s not som dark and cold anymore. The ski slopes are all covered in snow and we can go skiing every now and then!
In our spare time we run a ski slope not far from here, so we usually hang around there a couple of times each week. But last week we headed up to Örebro and their slopes – another beautiful area.

Anyway, at work everything is ready for the season, we’re just waiting for April to start! We’ve made some new tours available for reservation a few days ago – it’s a daytrip with hiking and outdoor cooking that we’re arranging together with Elles Utemat. And she is also joining us on one of our kayaking weekends in the Lake Vättern archipelago this summer!

Now, Linda is preparing some courses to be held in October-December. Once the season start there will be no time for preparations, so everything needs to be done now! 🙂
