In the Winter of 2020 we had our first collaboration with Fjällräven. Back then they provided us with a full Fjällräven winter clothing set to review. It was our introduction to the Fjällräven brand. We really liked their products and quality.
When we started planning our most recent trip to Lapland, we knew we needed only the best possible gear. Knowing that the temperature in Lapland can drop well below 0, only the best of the best would suffice. With our previous Fjällräven experiences, there was only one way to go for me.
The holiday season is coming, the most wonderful time of the year is almost here. I love Christmas, which is what made me think of a Christmas city trip. Throughout Europe many cities have Christmas markets and special decorations this time of the year. I wanted to visit a city where I had never been before and which is famous for its Christmas markets and celebrations. There was only one city that ticked all the boxes; Vienna!
Whatever time of year it is, I’m a real nature and outdoor fan. I love to be outdoors and explore new and familiar places. Being stuck at home because of a global pandemic has made me go out and enjoy nature even more.
I go out for a descent walk a few times a week in the forests and hills of South Limburg in the Netherlands. We had a long and pretty warm Autumn, but now that Winter has kicked in, my windproof softshell jacket and thin hiking trousers are no longer sufficient.
The destination was set: Lapland. But that immediately led to the next question. What are we going to wear? When it comes to cold winter destinations, warm clothing is super important. Getting the right travel gear is an essential if you embark on an Arctic adventure.
A jacket is fundamental in staying warm in cold conditions. Picking the right one can be a challenge but is crucial at the same time.
Planning a trip to Canada in winter? I recently traveled to Alberta, Canada to experience the city of Edmonton, Lake Louise, Banff and Jasper National Park in winter and participated in all kinds of winter activities from snowboarding to ice climbing and spotting wildlife in Alberta.
Since it can get very cold in Canada in winter with freezing temperatures from -5 to -30 degrees Celsius (23 to -22 F), it’s necessary properly to pack for winter travel. Warm clothes to wear in extreme cold weather conditions, not only in Canada, but this winter packing list can basically be used for all countries with these cold temperatures.
