The cosy Scandinavian concept of ‘hygge’ has become popular in recent years, but there’s another wellness idea that helps Nordic people through long, cold winters. ‘Friluftsliv’ is a word used by Swedes, Danes and Norwegians. It translates literally as ‘fresh-air life’, and is all about embracing the great outdoors whatever the weather, being active, and immersing yourself in nature. A video by Maddy Savage and Benoit Derrier for BBC Reel and BBC Culture.
