I have been traveling the world; I love to travel. I also know how important it is to have local expertise to find the best adventures and experiences. I am passionate about helping each traveler find the right itinerary for them. Even for me it can be different: one trip hard adventure, and another slow and restful.
What places and activities do you specialize in?
"All of Norway, especially the fjords and the Arctic. I focus on nature experiences, food and culture, hiking, biking, kayaking, and glacier walking. I can arrange self-guided trips, trips with small groups, or trips with a private guide."
How did you get involved in travel?
"I have been spoiled by Norwegian adventures, where we have all of nature's elements so close: it is close to us, and it gives us the chance to be close to each other.
During one of my travels, 15 years ago, I got the idea of starting a company to share the amazing destination that Norway is - and my local adventures - with you."
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"My most unique experiences when traveling have never been something I saw through a bus window or other windows and have never been something I bought - they have been the people I met, the stories they told, the food I tasted, or the activities I did.
Some of my best memories are from a trek in the Himalayas, on my own. I met a local porter named Bomba. I did not need or want a porter to carry my backpack, but I wanted to leave some money with the locals - so I hired him. He told me amazing stories, and he took me off the beaten track to meet his friends and taste their food."
