B-O Johansson is a real veteran when it comes to journeys into the world of nature. He has been a dog sled driver, rapids shooter and active participant of activity-and-adventure tourism since the beginning of the eighties.
When not organizing dog team and rapids-shooting tours, he undertakes extreme outdoor activities, such as marking the western track up to the top of Mount Kebnekaise, Sweden´s highest mountain at 2 111 m. Few people know so much about or are so aware of the Swedish Maritime Administration’s security requirements for rapids shooting. In fact B-O helped to write them! Moreover, he teaches almost everything that can be categorised under ” the wilderness” in the Tourism Sports Course at Kiruna.
