About Barbaras Simple Life

My dream is spending most of my time creating content around my life outside the box. I am a wilderness guide, adventurer, musher and thru-hiker, living in a tiny house on wheels. Together with my 8 sled dogs I live in the remoteness of Swedish Lapland. As a social happy loner I love being alone and am really an expert in living happily in solitude.

Photography and writing have been my passion for many years. For some time I also run my own Youtube channel and am meanwhile an avid video creator. In december 2021 I launched my first book. It talks about my life in nature, solitude and happiness.

I am now transforming my guiding company into a personal brand-based business. This path 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 hope to find you soon as a supporter!

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. 

Today I work part-time as a wilderness guide 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-Hikes of the Pacific Crest Trail 2018 and Continental Divide Trail 2021 were life-changing experiences. It rose a new passion and will lead me to many other long hiking trails.
