Johanna Davidsson

”Johannas trip was great. My ambition was never to do it as fast as possible, but Johanna proved that it’s possible to beat records and also enjoy the trip. That she has been able to combine those two things is dubble cool. ” Ola Skinnarmo, the first Swede who skied to the South Pole.


Johanna Davidsson is a sister who is built for expeditions.
A strong, sweet and cheerful skibum who had the South Pole in her sight.

In Swedish the nickname for a nurse is sister. So, Johanna is a professional sister, a little sister and a solo sister. As a female adventurer she strives to inspire other women and girls to go out to explore. While doing so, she doesn't want her or her fellow sisters to be defined as girl adventures. They are adventurers and Johanna has gone further then most women and men. Her strenght lies in her desire to be outdoors. Johanna was primarely drawn to the French Alps, where she was shaped by several ski seasons. She continued to enjoyed the white plains, ski hills and ice caps and educated herself in the Nordic landscape. Her life was based in outdorsy hubs like Storuman, Umeå and Tromsø. The ski tours and mountain trips became a build-up for a Greenland expedition in 2014. She crossed the ice sheet together with one of her big sisters and they became the first Swedes to cover that distance. An award winning expedition, which made them the Swedish Adventurers of the year. This time the sister was going on her own, as a solo sister. But she was doing this South Pole expedition for her fellow sisters as well. For the professional ones and the adventuruos ones.
