A quick shot from a beautiful trip along the frozen surface of Trehörningen Lake in Huddinge, Sweden, last weekend.

A beautiful 80-kilometre loop through a flatter part of the Kosciuszko National Park. The Kosciusko area was once used for summer grazing and has a couple of hundred stockman’s ‘huts’ scattered through the area joined by trails that are perfect for riding. Some of the huts are basic one-roomers with dirt floors and others were lived in full-time from the 1800s until the 1950s.

There’s a 160-year-old slate quarry in the local hills, and there are also a few ruined buildings. Over the summer, I set about ‘rebuilding’ one by building the walls higher. This makes a perfect bivvy spot by throwing a tarp over it. A slate fireplace is built into the corner of the building, which makes a great focal point for passing the time and cooking food during a cold evening. I spent my sixth night here last weekend, and I’m pretty sure they’ll be many more to come!
