Veikka Gustafsson is one of the more extreme mountaineers. He is the ninth person in the world to have climbed all 8000 meter peaks without the use of oxygen.
It is not hard to see that Veikka possesses extraordinary physical and mental strength. As a Haglöfs friend, his opinions are highly valued – in his environment, the tiniest detail is of crucial importance.
Although Veikka is a professional mountaineer, that is only a fraction of his outdoor life. He only makes large expeditions to remote places a few times a year. A lot of time goes into preparations, planning and post expedition work. However, he tries to go out into nature daily. "Going out, even for just a few hours helps me to unwind and gather strength."
