Welcome to Southern Sweden, Skåne
Updated: Jul 30
I’m very excited to have the opportunity to promote the southern region of Sweden, Skåne with Wide Oyster, filming for National Geographic Traveller and Skane’s tourism board. We were a team of four traveling from coast to coast capturing beautiful stories of local entrepreneurs living their dreams. Swede's like to keep things simple, they run and support local small businesses such as farm to table restaurants and enjoy Skåne's beautiful nature. We created many videos revealing some of the unique aspects Skåne has to offer.

I was inspired by how connected Swedish people are with nature, we road boats, kayaks, bikes while visiting many sandy and rocky coastlines with old ancient rock formations dating back over 5000 years ago.
The food in Skåne, a good part of which is produced locally, is a finger-licking sensation: self sustainable restaurants with an ever changing creative menu. Ice cream makers with flavors from their homegrown herbs and spices, an apple juice maker, local organic farmers and butchers of quality meats of traditional Swedish animal breeds.
