The essense of Lapland for me – Eva Gunnare
For more than half of my life I have been living in Jokkmokk, at the heart of Swedish Lapland just above the Arctic Circle.
As a young woman, I came from the capital Stockholm to the mountains and immediately fell in love with the spectacular wilderness, the warm and easygoing people and the culture, which was so different from everything I had experienced before.
I have lived, studied, worked and loved every minute of my life in Lapland and as the mother of my Sami son I have moved closer to the Sami culture. I have been working with the Laponia World Heritage for many years and travelled around the area extensively but my latest passion and current work is with local food and especially wild herbs of the area!
The seasons change very quickly in Swedish Lapland and meeting exciting people and discovering new adventures creates wonderful memories in my everyday life. I love to share these experiences in a personal, informative way that will stimulate your senses.
