Barbaras Simple Life

is creating photographs and blog, in future as well videos




I dream about spending most of my time on private adventures and in the outdoors. First I will transform my travel company into a personal brand-based business. This path as an influencer/ambassador is comparable with an ultra-long distance thru-hike. The stuff I love.

To make my dream possible, I will depend on sponsors, partners and patrons. I own a lot of knowledge and skills in the outdoors. As well I have a passion for content making. The combination of the two will let me create great content about my different kind of life. I hope to find you as a supporter as soon as I have content to present!

Some words about my background:
Born and raised in Switzerland I am living today with eight huskies in the woods close to a beautiful little village in Swedish Lapland. In a lovely tiny house on wheels, in great nature, with nice villagers and good friends. A charming place I like to share with my guests and love to return to after every adventure.

During winter 1996 I worked as a dog handler and tourist guide in the Finnish Arctic. Educated in marketing I immediately fell in love working with people and huskies. Thrilled with this mission and the Arctic nature I stayed in Northern Finland. 2003 I founded my own adventure company with various summer and winter activities. Later I missed the Swiss Alps and started to guide mountain tours in Sweden and Norway. With the main activities skiing and snowshoeing with huskies furthermore hiking.

Feeling rooted in the north of Sweden I moved in 2008. I bought a tourism company and settled in Lapland. Followed by a very intense period with too many hours behind the office table. After selling this later company in 2014 I focused anew on my adventure company. I restarted working in the Scandinavian mountains. After more than 20 lovely years guiding, I decided 2017 to stop. I completed the last commercial mountain tour in spring of 2018.

Today I work part-time, rent my tiny home and keep my living costs low by minimalism. As an enthusiastic nature- and adventure lover I explored many routes in the world. By foot, skis, bike or huskies. Countless short trips and a few longer ones enriched my life. My Thru-Hike of the Pacific Crest Trail 2018 was a life-changing experience. It rose a new passion and will lead me to many other long hiking trails.
