ABOUT
Our manifesto

We believe

We enjoy life to the fullest in the moment, but know it can take a lot of careful planning to create a life you enjoy every moment.

We live for luxury, but know sometimes you just need to sell your purse on eBay to make the next big thing happen.

We know living better starts by focusing in wellness and health, but know it’s not as easy as reading motivational posters.

We love to adventure around the world, but sometimes nothing beats being home.

We think everyone should take risks, but know sometimes it means you wear a shirt in a bold color to work, not ziplining over rain forest.

We believe in silver linings and happy endings, and are ready to do more than just write to-do lists in pretty notebooks to take charge in finding our happiness.

ABOUT
Ideas are on us… you still have to go!

Live your adventures

Define your own adventures, don’t let anyone else tell you what’s adventurous.
Climb mountains, despite your fear of heights.
Take the road less traveled.
Have a map, but enjoy getting lost.
The form of transportation doesn’t matter as long as you enjoy the ride.
There is no bad weather when you are prepared for the weather.
Make your own tracks.
Future is yours to shape, don’t let past define what’s ahead of you.

Turning dreams into reality.

Hi, I'm Katja!

Greetings from Helsinki, Finland! After 20 years of nomadic living (and ten years of living in the USA), I returned to my home country. Our nomadic lifestyle allowed me to be a mom, pursue my personal dreams in life, and have a career in marketing.

I am a proof that impossible things can become possible, and I would love to show you how to make your dream lifestyle a reality.

Skimbaco lifestyle is rooted in Nordic values; sustainability, grit, and enjoying small things in life.

Share Your Skimbaco Lifestyle

“Hi! I started Skimbaco Lifestyle in Durango, Colorado, in 2007.
“Skimba” is a Finnish slang word for a ski and “co” stands for Colorado. “Skiing in Colorado” was our way of living life to the fullest back then, but “Skimbaco” is enjoying the moment where you are – you define your own “skimbaco.”

To stay in touch on a daily basis, let’s connect on Instagram. And don’t forget to share your best moments with #Skimbaco hashtag!”
