guide /owner

Being Dutch in Sweden I’m still surprised every time I’m confronted with the beauty, tranquility and vastness of the landscape you can find in Scandinavia. But confronting too can be the challenging weather circumstances one can meet. The quality of our guiding is found in safety, undergoing an unique experience.

I’m trained in Sweden as a fjäll- en vildmarksledare, meaning mountain and wilderness leader, which makes me capable to safely and professionally lead a group through the mountains and wilderness, any season.

Rental wilderness cabin in Fulufjället National Park, Sweden

Scandinavian Hiking offers a wilderness cabin in Fulufjället national park, named Björnholmssätern. The cabin is only accessible on foot, or during the winter ons skies/snowshoes and is situated along the trail  ‘Södra Kungsleden’.There is no running water, nor electricity. And the toilet is outside.

What it does offer i a unique location, in the middle of the wilderness inside the boundaries of the national park. Here you can enjoy the intense peace, the beauty of the taigaforest, de river that runs along and – who knows – a good book besides the fireplace.

from the cabin you can walk into the quietest and the most desolate paret of the national park. On foot it is a 2 day walk to the other side of the national park where you find the – very popular and well visited – Njupeskär waterfall. This is literally the other side of Fulufjället!

In the calendar to the right you can search availability and book online!

We (8 friends) had some great, beautiful and challenging days (Thursday until Monday) with guide Bob. At times the snowshoeing through deep snow was pretty intense, but the experience and the views we got in return made it all more than worth! We made our own snow hole and slept in it (it was -13 degrees outside, but inside it was fine), hiked about 13 km on snowshoes, visited Swedens highest (frozen) waterfall. And slept the last night in a tipitent in beautiful environment on the snowy beach of a lake. We cooked our own meal on a fire and spent the evening along the campfire. It was a great experience!


We work with team development and use nature as a tool. Safety, great experiences and good service are the three most important parts of a successful activity. Development emerges from the balance between experiencing and then discussion and reflection. Bob fits as a guide well into this process and shares his experiences. He creates the safety needed and is able to chose the right environment, where our experiences can lead to development.
During our expeditions Bob took us cross-country skiing, mountain hiking and we a made a trip with canoes. We experience the most fantastic autumn days, white out during winter as well as total darkness. We slept with Bob in a tent, in a snowhole and under the stars. Bob is well prepared and creates the right circumstances for our groups.

Safety First

The places we visit can be far away from basic (medical) needs. All our hikes are carefully planned with safety as our highest priority. But unfortunately can accidents, or disease never be fully ruled out. In the mountains and wilderness the distance to professional medical help can be very far. That’s why I’m educated Wilderness First Responder at the NOLS Wilderness Medicine Institute, a thorough training which ables me to de deal medical emergencies in the wilderness, where waiting for help could mean days!

All guides working for Scandinavian Hiking need therefore the knowledge and experience to deliver first aid in remote areas.
