Since we first met, twelve years ago now, my husband and I have always used the time between Christmas and New Year to grab a couple of days away.
From trekking in the highlands of Scotland, queuing in the snow outside the Palace of Versailles, or as last New Year’s Eve, running around Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen with an over excited toddler.
Each wintry adventure has been as memorable as the last, but one thing I have learnt for sure is that outdoor holidays are even more fun if you have the right clothes.
That’s why it’s been a total privilege, as we prepare for our next festive family trip, to team up once again with outdoor clothing brand Fjällräven.

Throughout their 60-year history, Fjällräven have been committed to making nature more accessible for everyone, and in true Swedish style they focus on simplicity, durability and practicality, while having the utmost respect for the environment.
With products including the renowned Greenland Jacket or Expedition Down Jacket as well as the iconic Kånken backpack, Fjällräven is a brand worn and trusted by men, women and children across the world.
