Magnus Arwenhed

Norrköping, Sweden

My name is Magnus and I am 45 years old. I live in Norrköping close to a fantastic and varied nature. My job as a music producer is a fun and creative profession, but often with a high tempo and stress. Time out in the woods and the wilderness, whether it is a short walk or a longer trip with an overnight stay – is my way of finding balance and gathering strength to meet everyday life.

Q&A with Magnus

What are your words to live by, your motto?

Do not limit your challenges, challenge your limitations.

Where is the next place on your travel bucket list and why?

On my travel bucket list there is a lot left to check off, but high up is a lonely hike in Sarek as it is a fantastic place in our beautiful country I have not yet had the opportunity to experience.

What is your only item you would take to a desert island?

My only item I would take to a desert island is of course a knife.

If you could choose to do anything for a day, what would it be?

If I had to choose to do anything for a day, I would be alone in the woods, without any musts or deadlines. Lying on a reindeer fur in front of a fire and listening to nature while I wait for the coffee to be ready.

What’s your outdoor story?

For as long as I can remember, I have enjoyed nature and been driven by a curiosity and joy to discover. With a mother who was a scout leader and a father who spent all his time in the woods and out in the countryside, I grew up outdoors and it has given me a sense of belonging and security with nature. I try to get out into the woods and wilderness on various activities as often as I can, alone or in the company of family or friends. When I'm out, I usually make a fire and make coffee and just enjoy the peace and quiet. Otherwise, I like to camp, cook in the woods, paddle and hike.
