Watch the movie about Anne and Doreen.
Anne and Doreen have been invited by Saleta to Skellefteå, Swedish Lapland, for three days. Here life is all about the outdoors. Roaming dense forests, island hopping in the archipelago and just enjoying being a free spirit under a sun that really never sets in summer. And of course, meeting people doing their things. There first day together brings them into the vast woodlands and straight up on top of the world.
