In between her trail running season and the first ski mountaineering races of the winter, Suunto ambassador Emelie Forsberg travelled to Tenerife in the Canary Islands for a little holiday.

“It’s really smooth for us Scandinavians to travel to Tenerife because of the direct flights. The island itself has a lot of variety: the beaches, green forests and the barren mountain. It has everything. I really enjoy it here”, says Emelie.

However, Emelie’s off-season isn’t all about relaxation.

“I heard about this run about five years ago when I was here on the island. I was really tired after a race and had one week to relax so I couldn’t do it then. It is fascinating to try to do fast times on mountain routes. I want to see if I can do it fast and, if I can, it’s great. But if I can’t it’ll be a great day anyway!”
