I'm from Norway, I love being outdoors, and I love being a host and travel planner for those who want to experience the best of this amazingly beautiful country! I've been in the hospitality industry for more than 20 years, working as a manager in restaurants, travel companies, and hotels.

I've always loved being out in nature; hiking, skiing, camping, fishing, hunting and just enjoying the mountains, the silence, and the fresh air. Now I'm combining all of this to provide the best possible Norwegian adventure for you.

I look forward to helping you plan your next trip to Stavanger and Norway :)

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"Norway! More specifically, the Stavanger Region and Fjord-Norway.

We are a dedicated team of locals who offer guided hikes and tours to the Pulpit Rock (Preikestolen), Kjerag, the Lysefjord and Trolltunga, together with other premium outdoor adventure experiences in the Stavanger region, such boat cruises and kayaking. The tours can either be booked separately or in packages including hotels, transportation and other outdoor activities.

We also tailor-make premium tours and holidays in our beautiful region with partners we have carefully chosen, and are as a result proud of our offerings. "

How did you get involved in travel?

"In 1994, I landed a job at the Norwegian Pavilion at EPCOT Center, Walt Disney World, Florida. That was the first time I travelled abroad and stayed for a longer period of time. It was an incredible experience, and really got me into the hospitality industry and traveling. Since then I have worked in several different countries and in different positions in the hospitality industry - and traveling has always been an important part of my professional and private life. "

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"Visiting Banff National Park and the wild Rocky Mountains in Canada in April 2005 was just a breathtaking experience. We did a lot of both hiking and skiing, and I loved every minute of it!"
