LANDLOCKED | an Adventure Road Trip to the Arctic Circle with Sehnsucht Berlin

As two very ordinary, landlocked surfers from Berlin Richard and Sebastian are surfing the Norwegian Arctic Circle in winter. An adventure road trip in a camper van to the only remaining European wilderness in Central Europe.
 
We equipped the two guys with THE JACKET, Surf and Snowboard Tools as some accessories.

With our interviews, stories, pictures and products, we at Jeckybeng are addressing all of you who are searching for deceleration, sustainability and balance – those who want to rediscover nature. The plan: We - as two very ordinary, landlocked surfers - want to go on an adventure road trip to the Arctic Circle in winter. The only remaining European wilderness.

A bit hang over from new year celebration they started towards Kiel taking the ferry to Goteborg.

So stuck for 17 hours on that blinking „cutter“ for the cross over and being surround from the open sea, but still no chance to access it. They were not LANDLOCKED anymore, but BOATLOCKED.

One of the owner of the ski center. Erik gave them a lift to the top of the resort with a snowmobile.

On Sebastian’s birthday on the 3rd they found a little frozen island and discovered the area. A beautiful place without people and for sure, from now on they believed in trolls and elves.

The roads close to the Arctic Circle are difficult, curvy and icy. Our two friends are a bit exhausted through the cold and the constant alert they are in while driving through the snow with a 6m camper van.
