So proud, thanks Norway


Back in Norway I am so happy and proud that I won The Shackleton Award. I recieved it at Hotel Finse 1222 during the Expedition Finse weekend and it was such a great surprise. It felt like a big honor to win a polar price as a Swede in the Norway, which is the home for many polar explorers. This is what the lovely Schackleton Award committee says in its announcement:

“…We have, however, not selected our winner this year primarily because of records. This expedition was about very careful preparations and skills – some of them learnt here at Finse. It is also characterized by a fundamental positive and enthusiastic spirit and dedication about fulfilling dreams. The expedition and the winner should be a role model for other aspiring explorers. So, it was a true polar adventure in the spirit of Shackleton.”
