I was born and raised in Norway, but have travelled to most continents around the world as well as worked and studied in international surroundings. I have a bachelor degree in Tourism Management, and recently finished my master degree in International Business Management in Edinburgh, Scotland.
I have a passion outdoor activities such as hiking, meeting new people, to travel and see what the amazing diversity of countries and cultures has to offer on this earth. I believe that doing research and respecting various cultures, travelling responsibly and challenging oneself outside the comfort zone is the best way of experiencing life.
Travelling has indeed formed and changed my life and created unforgettable memories. Having the opportunity to share my stories and recommendations to other travellers visiting my hometown gives me both great motivation and energy as I know how much I truly have appreciated what other specialists` have offered me during my own overseas experiences.
What places and activities do you specialize in?
"I will cover everything about Bergen, Norway`s second biggest city also called "the city between the seven mountains", including "Norway in a nutshell" and the fjords and Islands around Bergen. I will offer both shorter or longer hiking trips and historical stories both in and around Bergen from the perspective of a local using local transportation. I will also offer harbour walks and custom-made boat trips around the ancient city. "
How did you get involved in travel?
"When living in Norway`s most Internationalized city, Bergen, as well as being a curious and adventurous person it was natural for me to increase my passion for travelling and cultural understanding at a young age. Just by walking past the wooden houses in the city centre of Bergen, one can meet about ten different nationalities! I have alway appreciated having the option to talk to travellers, hearing their stories and where they are from. I went on my first International journey alone to Indonesia right after high school in 2011 where I had an amazing experience, and have ever since then decided to study the field more deeply and travelled whenever I had the opportunity to various parts of the world. From my perspective, there is never enough travelling one can do and every investment I have made to see the world is the best investments I have ever made.
Even though Bergen is a popular tourist destination already, the city has a lot to offer from a local point of view which I am excited to share with the travellers. The Ethical Travel Portal team will provide unique, memorable journeys that are offbeat, custom tailored and well thought out. This will also give us the opportunity to learn about the travellers `stories and cultures as well. "
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"If I have to pick one unique travel experience, I have to mention my trip to Tanzania 2016 where one of my closest friends got married to her African husband in a small, local city called Bagamoyo. It was incredibly fascinating and touching to experience the joy, curiosity and respect both the Norwegian and the African cultures had about each other, and to have the opportunity to learn about their culture as well as teach them about ours as they bearly knew Norway existed. This experience was fantastic where I learned various things such as African dancing, a few words in Swahili, tasting the local food and went on a small safari park recommended by the locals where I could see and observe "the big five" in their right element."
Featured trips & expertise
This zealous (yet relaxing) and unbelievably scenic 14-day itinerary checks off Norway's three biggest cities traveling by train, ferry, and fjord cruise for a true Scandinavian adventure. Start off in Norway's buzzing capital with its new waterfront promenade before you take one of the steepest trains in the world to the village of Flåm. You'll ferry through the longest fjord in Norway and explore Bergen on your own and with a local guide. From here, board the Hurtigruten—a mighty coastal steamer—stopping in the Art Nouveau city of Ålesund for a night. Back on the Hurtigruten, you'll sail to Trondheim by way of the Geirangerfjord and then return to Oslo by train for one last night on the town.
This two-week adventure is ideal for travelers who want to make the most of Norway's summer. Start off exploring southern Norway (Oslo, Bergen and the Sognefjord) before flying to the Arctic Circle. From here, you'll rent a car and head to the rugged island of Senja for an active two days of cycling and kayaking before ferrying to smaller Andenes for whale watching. The adventure ends in lively Tromsø and Oslo for festivals and outdoor restaurants.
This exciting and less-traveled winter adventure takes you deep into Norway's boreal territory. Your weeklong tour between November and April begins in the quietly sophisticated city of Tromsø, where you can sled with huskies and reindeer during the day and chase the Northern Lights after dark. Continue to Alta by car or bus for snowsports in the Arctic wilderness and a UNESCO World Heritage Site comprised of rock carvings. To up the Alta adventure factor, spend your last two nights in a nearby hotel made of snow and ice!
Experience the best of Norway's winter season in this fun weeklong adventure by land, sea, and air. After a night in the country's buzzing capital, you'll head west whilst enjoying spectacular scenery along the famous Flåm Railway. From here, explore the mountains of Voss and stroll the historic wharf city of Bergen. Finish in Tromsø—gateway to the Arctic—and partake in outdoor activities like dog sledding and (weather permitting) a glimpse of the Northern Lights.
Steer a relaxing 12-day course through the highs and lows of Norway's spectacular landscapes from Jotunheimen National Park to the depths of Sognefjord, the country's deepest fjord. You'll enjoy the freedom of setting your own pace when visiting museums and UNESCO World Heritage Sites, not to mention plenty of opportunities to get out in nature and explore the wonders around you. Buckle up and pack your camera—this is going to be one gorgeous drive!
Escape the summer crowds with this weeklong winter-themed itinerary that highlights both southern and northern Norway. After a night in Oslo—Europe's fastest-growing capital—you'll take one of the steepest trains in the world to Flåm for snow-covered fjords. You'll then train to Bergen, a UNESCO-listed waterfront city with vibrant restaurants before flying north to picturesque Tromsø. This is where you'll finish the trip, with two nights in the Arctic wilderness dogsledding and searching for the Northern Lights.

Birkebeinerrennett then see a bit of norway, Norway - Mar 16 - Mar 22, 2019
When I was planning a trip to Norway for a mid-March Nordic ski race, my family (with two teen kids) knew we wanted to see more than the area between Rena and Lillehammer but didn't know anything about Norway or where to begin. I completely trusted the local knowledge of Vilde and Ingrid to make a recommendation for what more we should see in the time we had and without a car. The trip completely exceeded my expectations!
Several friends joined in after they heard the trip plan. We had... read more
10 days | oslo - bergen - tromsø, Norway - Mar 15 - Mar 24, 2019
Amazing experience with Kimkim.
Ingrid was very professional and made sure to tailor our trip to Oslo, Bergen and Tromso based on what we want and what we like and was always responsive in a timely manner.
Dogsledding adventure at trappers farm, Norway - Mar 16 - Mar 23, 2019
I'm so grateful to Ingrid, Kimkim and Trapper's Farm for helping me arrange the Norwegian adventure of my dreams. I wanted to chase the Northern Lights on a multi-day dogsledding expedition, and Trappers Farm delivered. The 4-day trip was highly personalized, authentic and filled with once in a lifetime opportunities. If you want to experience dog sledding off the beaten track, I highly recommend arranging a trip with them.
oslo - bergen - tromsø | magic of the fjords & northern norway, Norway - Mar 9 - Mar 15, 2019
Ingrid did a wonderful job planning our trip. She was prompt, professional and thoughtful. We had limited time and wanted to fit in Oslo, Bergen, the Flam railway, a Fjord cruise, dog sledding and the Northern lights. It took some adroit and creative planning to fit all this in 5 days, and we simply could not have figured this out on our own, and I give Ingrid great credit for figuring out a travel itinerary where we could do all this without feeling rushed. Everything went smoothly thanks... read more
Hiking adventure seeing natures beauty, Norway - Mar 3 - Mar 8, 2019
Ingrid was perfect! From start to finish she provided so much information, advice and support. She put together a perfect itinerary for Norway which ran super smoothly. I fit so much in to 5 days and had an incredible experience. Absolutely everything was organised and if I had Abby questions Ingrid responded pretty much immediately. I would highly recommend Kim Kim and I would definitely use again.
Tromsø winter adventure - 3 days, Norway - Feb 25 - Feb 28, 2019
Disappointed... although the communication was excellent but the plan is improper. We ended up paying extra cost for accumedation and transportation, and they didn’t take any responsibility to refund the missed up situation
Winter adenture in norway , Norway - Feb 7 - Feb 17, 2019
This trip was fantastic. I had some ideas as to what I wanted to do in Norway, but Ingrid put together the itinerary to accomplish it in a really unique trip.
We flew from Minneapolis to Amsterdam, then to Oslo, and finally to Tromso, before transferring to the Malangen Resort. Delicious dinner at the resort. We stayed in one of the deluxe cabins. The next day we went dogsledding and saw the Northern lights. We were allowed to mush our own team of dogs and were given a snack (reindeer... read more
14 days | from the fjords in the south to northern lights in the north |, Norway - Dec 26 - Jan 7, 2019
We had the time of our lives on this trip. From start to finish, Ingrid and KimKim was amazing. Ingrid Skyped and emailed with my husband to plan the perfect trip. She worked hard to get the things we wanted, the places we wanted to visit, and then made wonderful suggestions. We were able to travel from south to north with ease and see so much of Norway and the different cities and towns. Ingrid even took us on a personal tour in Bergen which was a perfect way to start our trip.

12 days | road trip along the coast of norway, Norway - Aug 9 - Aug 20, 2018
We traveled to Norway this past summer. Ingrid was great helping us plan our trip. She spent the day with us in Bergen and we loved her walking tour of her city. We loved the cabin in Loen that we never would have found without Ingrid’s advice. Our boys loved the hike we took in Geilo.
Scenic road trip & fjord experiences - the best of norway , Norway - Oct 30 - Nov 10, 2018
My wife and I has visited Norway from 30th October, 2018 to 10th November, 2018. In short, this was one of the best trips of our lives, all the credit goes to Ingrid.
Our plan was a 12 day plan, more on the road and outside than on tours and hotels. Our itinerary was planned in a great way along with the maps provided to us by ingrid was very helpful. We got to see many things, mountains, Fjords, Northern lights, whales, beautiful clean roads, scenery, sunrise, sunsets etc.

Norway's fjord adventure, Norway - Oct 5 - Oct 11, 2018
We loved the convenience, prompt reply and local insights. The local walking tours were fun and informative. The hotel in Aurland was really charming, and the fjord ferry cruise from Aurland was fantastic.
Ingrid and Vilde were helpful in offering local tips, packing tips, and so on.
I've recommended Kimkim.com's service to many friends already and many are keen to try out!
Oslo to bergen fjord adventure, Norway - Oct 4 - Oct 10, 2018
We are so pleased to have used this service when booking our trip. Ingrid and the team delivered an excellent program that perfectly suited our travel plans. It was a seamless process and took all of the guesswork out of the holiday. Very reasonable pricing as well. Thanks so much for all your help
3 weeks | the best of norway , Norway - Sep 9 - Oct 3, 2018
Ingrid was very helpful fight throughout the trip with additional requests we had. The planning and ticketing went like clockwork and was thus very easy to complete the journey. No problems were encounted.
Norway's ultimate fjord adventure - 15 days, Norway - Aug 23 - Sep 6, 2018
Planning a trip with an in-country advisor just makes sense. Ingrid Thornes, our trip consultant for a two week trip in Norway, met and exceeded our expectations. Being from Bergen, she was able to give good first-hand advice and proved more reliable than a guide book.
We outlined our preferences for types of hotels, modes of transport, and places we wanted to include on our visit. Ingrid evaluated our ideas, made suggestions and then delivered an itinerary that we collaborated on for... read more
Norway's ultimate fjord adventure - 15 days, Norway - Aug 23 - Sep 6, 2018
It was a great trip. Ingrid was so thorough and available to us via email at any time. She was very prompt in responding to any inquiries we made and changes we requested.
We thoroughly enjoyed the tour with her in Bergen as we were able to see areas we never would have discovered on our own. The hotels were lovely and centrally located which was so helpful to us. We are still raving about the wonderful breakfasts we enjoyed. Bergen was certainly a favorite.
Balestrand was a real treat... read more
Norway's ultimate fjord road trip , Norway - Sep 10 - Sep 14, 2018
It feels like my wife, Roxanne, and I have developed a personal relationship with Ingrid. Her "front end" or "pre-trip" communication with me was excellent and incredibly responsive (timely). We communicated back & forth so she could understand what we liked, which enabled Ingrid to tailor a trip to our desires.
Once the trip began, I was shocked how she was monitoring our trip daily and checking in on us to ensure we were fine and that the trip was going well. She even sent me her cell... read more
Norway's southern fjords - 7 days, Norway - Sep 6 - Sep 12, 2018
Ingrid was incredible! We had a short time to visit the Bergen-Egersund portion of Norway and Ingrid arranged all our hotels (fantastic breakfasts!), train trips (schedules, tickets, maps from hotel to station), fjord boat trip, bus trip, etc. She was unfailingly patient responding to my numerous detailed questions promptly. She even went out of her way to deliver some tickets to our hotel and met us there at the start of our trip to make sure we had all our questions answered. She paid... read more
8 days| prekestolen, kjerag and trolltunga highlights, Norway - Aug 31 - Sep 7, 2018
Ingrid was such a great helped for us, literally I just gave the name of the hikes I was interesteda at and she suggested a full itinerary. Everytime I needed support she was so responsive.
The holidays were great, was a busy and active holiday and managed to spend some time, enjoying the city as well. I will totally recommend to my friends and family to visit Norway and connect via kimkim, for sure I'm planning to come back.
The Hikes I did were: Kjerag, Pulpit rock and Trolltunga, hard to choose a favorite one
Thank You Ingrid for all your help, you rock!
Hiking & exploring the fjords in norway - 9 days , Norway - Aug 31 - Sep 7, 2018
My wife and I traveled the Fjord region of Norway Aug. 31- Sept. 7, 2018. Our weather was perfect every day, we were so lucky! We began in Bergen and used a combination of public transport including ferries and buses to travel to Rosendal, Odda, Aurland, Flam, Bergen, and then used the Hurtigruten ship to travel north to Alesund for a couple of days. The whole trip was fantastic and surpassed our expectations. We enjoyed the natural scenery of the mountains and the fjords, and enjoyed some... read more
Norwegian city, mountain & fjord adventure - 8 days, Norway - Aug 28 - Sep 4, 2018
Normally, I like to plan my own trips, but decided to try KimKim because I was too busy with work to research everything myself. Thanks to Ingrid, my boyfriend and I had the most wonderful and memorable 7-day whirlwind trip to Norway. As an active couple, we requested hiking, biking, kayaking and city sight-seeing (via train and ferry) all in just 1 week. Somehow, she was able to make it all happen.
I am so grateful to Ingrid for suggesting activities I might not have found on my own, like... read more
Norway's hiking & fjord adventure adventure - 7 days , Norway - Aug 27 - Sep 2, 2018
Amazing coordination, Ingrid is top notch guide and trip organizer. Would HIGHLY recommend this to anyone traveling to Norway!!!!
Norway's hiking & fjord adventure adventure - 7 days , Norway - Aug 27 - Sep 2, 2018
I am SO happy that I stumbled upon KimKim and, more importantly, Ingrid! I was feeling very overwhelmed at planning a trip to Norway, as it is such a beautiful country with so much to do and see. Ingrid shared her expertise and worked with us to plan a custom trip that fit in everything we wanted to do! We kayaked, hiked, boated, and explored our way through the country and couldn't have done it without the guidance of Ingrid. She was very patient with us in the planning process, making... read more
Western norway's rivers, mountains & fjords - 8 days, Norway - Aug 24 - Aug 31, 2018
Ingrid and Vilde were very responsive and kind in the trip planning and I enjoyed the KimKim platform. I was hoping the itinerary would help my group make the most of our time in Norway- but unfortunately the itinerary didn’t achieve that. Our first full day in a location put us in Ålesund on a Sunday when everything was closed. A few museums were open from 12-4 but it made for a long day waiting for the Hurtigruten in our hotel lobby until 1am. I would have expected recommendations on... read more
Norwegian highlights- bergen- the hardangerfjord- oslo, Norway - Aug 15 - Aug 21, 2018
My husband and I returned from the Norwegian Highlights trip which was organized by Ingrid. Everything was perfect. Ingrid took the time to talk me thru the entire trip before we left which was great since I was a little nervous. Also, every stop we made, we were expected at. What I mean is everyone knew the Johansen's were due to arrive and welcomed us. All reservations Ingrid made went smoothly. It was very nice to have all that done and not have any problems. I would highly recommend Ingrid for anyone planning a trip to Norway.
Oslo to bergen fjord adventure - 5 days, Norway - Aug 22 - Aug 25, 2018
Hello! Thank you to Ingrid and Vilde from Ethical Travel for arranging everything to my taste and my budget. I also had a great time with Nikola from Gone Paddling in Balestrand and Flemmet, my walking tour guide in Bergen. I feel I had the chance to explore lots of things that Norway has to offer in few days . I definitely recommend visiting Balestrand, a unique gem on the fjord and their new museum of Travel and Tourism in Norway (Norsk Reiselivsmuseum ). Thank you for helping me realizing one of my traveling destination dream
Explore bergen, fjords & slow travel, oslo - 10 days , Norway - Aug 15 - Aug 24, 2018
Greetings! Everyone I interacted with during this process was kind and as helpful as possible. There are a few things I think you might find helpful for the next time.
Generally speaking, the logistics of having to figure out our own transportation was not smooth. Having someone meeting us at both airport and train stations, and generally ensuring those things go well, was missing. Case in point is arriving at the Oslo train station with limited instructions about finding our hotel on site... read more
Nordic adventure for outdoor , Norway - Aug 15 - Aug 17, 2018
Excellent service provided by my KimKim representative Ingrid. She let me know everything down to bus times and numbers, and even went above and beyond finding me a ride home one night after I missed the last bus and the only taxi company in Aurland was fully booked. Really great help overall!
Norwegian highlights- bergen- the hardangerfjord- oslo, Norway - Aug 1 - Aug 7, 2018
We had a fabulous trip to Norway, orchestrated by Ingrid.
She was patient, kind, responsive and so extremely helpful!
We would definitely do this again!
Norway's mountains & fjords road trip - 18 days , Norway - Jul 23 - Aug 9, 2018
Our trip to Norway was great - helped in great measure by Ingrid, our travel advisor.
She helped us a lot in planning our itinerary - listened to what we were interested in and followed through with thoughtful suggestions. Once we decided on a trip plan, Ingrid made accommodation suggestions and then made the reservations. It was so helpful to have an agent from Norway who knows the country and helped us make excellent choices.
As to the trip itself, it was wonderful. The accomodations... read more
1 day | oslo with a local specialist | , Norway - Aug 2 - Aug 3, 2018
My Oslo tour experience was a great one. Thank you very much Ingrid for booking this at such short notice. I really enjoyed the long walk along the river because it was beautiful and quiet especially in the middle of a very busy city.
My guide, Stig, was very helpful in explaining the history behind the tiger for example close to the train station. Stig also shared facts about other things we saw and was of tremendous help in showing us around other places we needed to visit before we left for home. You guys are the best! Thank you:)
the fjords and glacier hiking | bergen | stavanger | oslo - 7 days , Norway - Jul 22 - Jul 28, 2018
All of Ingrid's recommendations were terrific. We had a great experience! She even went above and beyond to give us directions at each site. The glacier hike at Folgefonna was amazing! But the highlight of our trip was a sunrise hike to Priekestolen. Driving around on our own was a great way to explore and see the "real" countryside... it's beautiful!
Thank you Ingrid!
Scenic drives and fjords - 11 days, Norway - Jul 16 - Jul 26, 2018
Wonderful trip, Ingrid was fantastic with all details, hotels, and guiding us to make a schedule that made sense for our various driving trips. Highlights were definitely the driving trips to Geiranger - Trollstigen and the Gamle - Strynefjellsevegen roads.
norwegian fjord road trip: oslo | bergen to ålesund - 8 days, Norway - Jul 21 - Jul 28, 2018
Ingrid did a phenomenal job helping to plan and book our trip. Even when we changed our plans multiple times, she was able to quickly adapt to our changes and come up with constructive solutions.
She knows her country very well, so was able to advise us on the best travel plans, since we were traveling with a child and elderly parents.
9 days | norway's ultimate fjord adventure , Norway - Jul 17 - Jul 25, 2018
Ingrid did an amazing job helping us plan our trip. She was very responsive to all our questions and always made sure she was available.
Even during our trip she provided us suggestions for restaurants and axtivities to do
Thanks you Ingrid
Scandinavian highlights | bergen -flåm- aurland- oslo, Norway - Jun 28 - Jul 13, 2018
Our recent trip to Scandinavia was wonderful! Ingrid, from Ethical Travel Portal, did a great job of helping us find the right balance between city and rural travel in our trip to Norway, Sweden and Finland. Before we found kimkim, all the options we were provided by travel agents were "canned tours" which were really just packages to save money on air/hotel travel with bus-type sight-seeing tours. In comparison, Ingrid helped us figure out a plan of cities and villages that let us explore... read more
Explore bergen, fjords & waterfalls - 6 days , Norway - Jul 15 - Jul 20, 2018
I just got back from Bergen, Norway. Ingrid Thornes arranged my excursions. She was knowledgeable and kept in constant contact as we were planning the trip. She guided my hike and city tour. The kayaking tour was very easy to do. Don't miss it. Also recommend the Fjords boat rips.
I had a very pleasant stay in Bergen.
Kimkim is a reliable company. I felt safe and relaxed, especially since I was travelling solo.
I will definitely use them again.
Kayaking adventure in lofoten!, Norway - Jul 8 - Jul 13, 2018
From start to finish, Ingrid provided exceptional service. She carefully listened to my list of criteria and dutifully created an itinerary that suited all my needs. We worked collaboratively to refine the trip as my interests shifted, and I ended up with the trip of a lifetime: 4 days of kayaking and camping in the Lofoten Islands of Norway. For anyone looking for travel guidance in Norway, I highly recommend Ingrid.
Lofoten Aktiv -- the company that led the kayaking trip -- was equally... read more
15 days | norway's west coast adventure, Norway - Jun 29 - Jul 13, 2018
We had a large family group of 12 people that traveled to Norway on a custom trip to see both north and south Norway. Out trip included trains, buses, ferries and flying. Some of the travel logistics were complicated but it all worked out great. Ingrid at Ethical Travel Portal was very responsive and designed a great trip for us.
Hiking trolltunga and explore the fjords in norway - 7 days, Norway - Jun 20 - Jun 26, 2018
Ingrid was amazing to work with! She created an amazing trip for my son and I and planned fun activities for us to engage in. I, personally, loved kayaking on the fjord and would highly recommend this activity for others. My son hiked Trolltunga, and although a very difficult hike, if you are physically prepared for this hike it is a must! Ingrid did a great job of organizing travel, hotels and activities for us and provided all itineraries, ticket, and maps to get us to where we needed to... read more

It was nice to know she was there if we had a specific question!

Not only did she save me hours of research, but she managed the hotel bookings, train and ferry tickets and provided recommendations of things to do and... read more
Explore tromsø, lofoten and bergen with friends! , Norway - May 11 - May 24, 2018
My husband and I had a wonderful trip planned to Norway. Unfortunately, we had to cancel due to my husband's health. Despite this, I would highly recommend Ingrid and kimkim. The messaging platform with Ingrid and with the central office worked seamlessly. Ingrid responded so quickly to our questions. She went out of her way to find out about luggage storage, unrelated to this trip and was flexible with changes. I think the trip she planned would have been fantastic. Hopefully we can go to Norway in the near future.
Oslo | the fjords | bergen | lofoten, Norway - May 5 - May 11, 2018
I worked with Ingrid who was based in Norway and she was great. She even met us for a hike in her hometown of Bergen. I would highly recommend KimKim to anyone who is planning a trip and wants the expertise of those living in the area.
Explore tromsø, lofoten and bergen with friends! , Norway - May 11 - May 24, 2018
Ingrid would get more stars if you offered that option.

Fantastic experience. I am a last minute planner and Ingrid was exceptionally patient and helpful. Helped arrange a great tour, was available for last minute changes and was always on top of things.
