The birth story

Determined, attentive, and deeply connected to nature, a young man from the North found himself fleeing unemployment and the allure of big money in the 1980s. The hustle and bustle of the bustling cities quickly made him yearn for the tranquility he had left behind. Fishing trips became his solace, offering moments of peace that countered his demanding sales job. With each trip, he ventured farther and farther into remote waters, drawn back time and again to the salmon river.

Returning to the world of wealth and pressure became increasingly distressing, with the constant refrain of “do more, do better.” The young man from the North couldn’t help but feel that this wasn’t real life.

Then came the redemptive summer, and with it, a journey to the salmon river. It was a picturesque June evening, transitioning into night, as humidity formed a mist over the river’s surface. As he rowed towards the shore, the mist revealed a figure standing beside his camp—an enchanting elf. The elf smiled and extended a hand in invitation, as if they had been acquainted for a lifetime. Drawing nearer, the young man noticed the elf’s open fingers, revealing a mysterious object, like a piece of jewellery. The elf presented the object to the restless traveler and said, “Carry this with you. Even when you’re lost, it will guide you back to where you belong.”

From that moment on, the mysterious object became his compass, leading the young man deeper into the serene and untouched fishing waters of Lapland. He discovered Lapland’s crystal-clear streams and the grand salmon rivers flowing between the forest covered hills. The leaves of the trees were vividly green, the flowers radiated golden hues, and all colors and sounds felt pure and clear. It was then that the young man understood the meaning behind the elf´s words. His admiration for nature intensified, transforming into all-encompassing love.

Guided by the mysterious object, the young man discerned his path and set his sights on pursuing his love for the Lapland wilderness. It was time to create space for himself and embrace his heart’s desires. Becoming a fishing guide, he could earn a living in the untamed wild, marveling at the majestic leaps of salmon and the graceful dance of grayling on the river’s surface. Finally, he discovered his true calling, and the Flow of Experience was born.
