Johanna Davidsson is a sister who is built for expeditions.
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.
Glacier guide, kite trainer and mountain guide. She did Hardangervidda on skis and crossed Greenland with kite, from the south to the north. And skied to the South Pole.
Paddled along the Swedish and Finnish coast. 3660 km in 92 days. But she was not totally solo, a buddy kayaked the opposite way and they did a high-five half way.
Leisure climber who is exploring the nearby mountain walls outside of Tromsø. And sometimes she ventures a little bit further to climbing paradises like Lofoten.
Johanna has been sailing as well. Once she crossed the Indian Ocean, from Indonesia to Cape Town. When she was a rib boat guide in the Sognefjord she used a motor however.
Here are the dates, times and places updated for live talks given by Solo Sister.
Sweet things said about Johanna and her skills.

After two months skiing in Antarctica I changed the flat landscape to steep mountains in Patagonia. In the beginning of this year I met up with my friend Kjersti to climb in the Argentinan mountains close to the border of Chile for the next five weeks. We stayed in the little village El Chaltén and[…]

bild: Hans Honold Jag och min kompis Karin tänkte ta med ett gäng ut på fjället och lära de allt vi kan om vintercamping, sova i snöhåla, lavinkunskap, undgå frostskador, navigering och en massa annat nyttigt och bra. Vi hoppas på norsk påskstämning som betyder soligt väder, sitta i en solgrop och äta apelsin (om[…]
