About Out in the Arctic and the Author

I am a 30-something software engineer from Finland. In this blog I write about all things outdoors, but especially of outdoors photography, hiking and trekking, packrafting and ski touring and ski expeditions. I Intend to provide gear reviews, tutorials, trip reports, photography but also share resources related to these topics made by others.

About focus on gear

The time I have available for spending in the woods or open tundras is severely limited by a busy job and family life. Often it results in focusing perhaps too much on equipment instead of experience. I hope that my focus on gear may help other people who are investigating gear themselves.

Learning through teaching

I am trying to constantly learn new outdoors related crafts. I believe the best way to learn is to teach to others. Therefore I try to share everything I have learned on this website. I would love to take you along on my journey of learning.

What nature means for me

Outdoors life (but also nights spent at our cottage on the shore of a small lake in Eastern Finland) is how I charge my batteries. Spending time surrounded by nature allows me to decouple from the stress and cacophony of daily life in the city and  from my work as a software engineer. For an introvert like me, quite time alone in the nature is a thoroughly physical and holistic experience that I quite cannot explain.

Photography on this site

Although I love photography, I often use other people’s images on this blog. The reason is simply to have a fresh and beautiful visual look on the site. All photographs by other people are credited appropriately at the end of the post.
