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."

Our trip to Norway was absolutely wonderful. I already knew where we wanted to go and what we wanted to see before I contacted Ingrid. She was instrumental in several crucial ways: She helped me book our flights within Norway; she arranged for the train tickets to Flam and Bergen, as well as the tickets for the trip on the Fjord; and she arranged a local guide for a city tour in Oslo, Bergen and Tromso. She also helped me choose hotels in each city. Her choices were perfect. The hotels... read more
December in Norway · Norway - Dec 4 - Dec 13, 2019
Traveling to Norway in December presents its own unique challenges - mostly due to the fact that the weather is unpredictable (which we knew going into things)- but everything that could be controlled was handled smoothly and efficiently through Kimkim. We had a number of room reservations and travel connections that had to be coordinated, and Kimkim made sure that everything flowed together smoothly. We traveled northward by plane, train and ferry, and each step along the way we were... read more

Tatjana and I had a great time, specially in Geilo, where the snow, sun and skiing conditions were absolutely perfect. Heidi was a great guide and, further, she arranged a wonderful evening dinner at the Geilo Mountain Lodge for her partner and us. (The Lodge should be on the Michelin list!!!) Oslo at the front and back end of our trip included Vinterland, Vigeland statuary park, and viking, Fram and Kon-Tiki museums that were very well done.

Our family of 6 from hot and wet tropical Singapore, had a fantastic trip to icy cold Norway! Ingrid has been very accommodating to our needs and very responsive to our numerous questions...and sh was able to allay all our concerns etc. There were a couple of slight imperfections (no fault of Ingrid). Firstly, we found the local guide from Oslo to be wanting...slipshod work despite we gave him a tip of 800 NOK while the young man in Bergen was fantastic. He might be short of knowledge... read more

All the hotels were great. All but 2 transportation arrangements went off without a flaw. Overall, we are very pleased with our visit to Norway. I am thankful that Ingrid helped me to arrange everything!
In Oslo, we liked the Thon Europa more than the Thon Spectrum. The Europa had a better breakfast buffet, was an easier walk from the train station & the neighborhood seems a bit better. Next door to the Europa is the Brunello Ristorante. You should recommend this to others! This was some... read more

Initially I arrived earlier than she , and somehow got to the bus for the hotel for the night , the Gardemon Airport Hotel , which was suggested by our Svalbard leader . The hotel was very nice , the food fabulous , and a wonderful walk nearby .

My wife and I are so pleased we decided to hire Kimkim to plan our first trip to Norway. We had a limited time (6-7 days) and felt they did a wonderful job giving us the best itinerary for our interests/time constraints. The accommodations they selected were convenient and comfortable, the detailed itineraries they provided were extremely helpful (including maps, wayfinding info, etc.), and the guides they hired were professional and informative.

Mixed experience. Some great some so so · Norway - Sep 16 - Sep 20, 2019
Ingrid was lovely to chat with when planning our trip. Her responses were always very prompt. However, we were planning a trip for Bergen for mid-late September. Our group would have greatly appreciated and benefited from having her insider perspective shared ahead of time. For example, many of the attractions on the Bergen card (which she sold us as part of the package) were closed or on very limited hours due to the fact that it was “late” in the season. Additionally, we feel Ingrid... read more

Summer Tour in Norway's Fjords - 14 Days · Norway - Aug 22 - Sep 1, 2019
Outstanding service from Ingrid and the KimKim team before and during my trip - including helping me though an unplanned hiccup in my itinerary!
I absolutely loved my stay in the Lofoten Islands and especially Reine. I'll definitely head back there some day to explore some hikes I had to cancel due to the inclement weather I experienced on my trip.
Bergen was a ton of fun too - great charm, cool vibe along with tons of great shops and restaurants / pubs!
Transportation throughout the country - airfare, buses, trains and taxis - were all super easy and convenient too.

Both of our city guides, Stig and Flemmet, gave us unique perspectives of their cities, an off the beaten path stroll through the city and excellent recommdations of where to eat. Hiking through the hills around Kalvag was enjoyable, even in the light rain. The ride on the ferry from Bergen to Aurland was... read more

I have used the tour services for the first time and my interactions with Ingrid were simply outstanding. She was always prompt with her responses and provided not just the relevant information, but something extra as well. She took on the recommendations positively and was a life saver when we had to make a last minute change in the fjord cruise. Over all we had an amazing experience and I will be using kimkim for my future travels!

Nordic Road Trip for Nature Lovers - 14 Days · Norway - Jul 26 - Aug 10, 2019
We had a very great experience in Norway thanks to Ingrid's advices! We planned our trip taking inspiration from "Nordic Road Trip for Nature Lovers - 14 Days", we've been put in contact with Ingrid, who did a great job by adapting the tour to our requests. We've had 16 fantastic days hiking and exploring the most scenic views in southern Norway!
We highly recommend this service, as we're totally satisfied with it.
Bergen Fjord Adventure - 4 Days · Norway - Aug 14 - Aug 17, 2019
My wife and I visited Norway in August 2019 and Ingrid has been a key part of planning and executing our itinerary. We visited Bergen, Balestrand, Tromso, Lofoten Island and Oslo. Ingrid arranged our local travel visiting fords, Balestrand and then the most beautiful train ride via Myrdal. Ingrid also came to meet us personally at Bergen and walked to the city centre. She is a great asset to her company and I found her extremely helpful. Highly recommend Ingrid and Kimkim,
Fjords/kayaking near Bergen · Norway - May 31 - Jun 3, 2019
We were disappointed with the service from Kim Kim. The Nærøyfjord fjord itinerary that Ingrid chose for us routed us through the same fjord three times: Flam to Balestrand, then Balestrand to Flam, and then the first hour of the Nærøyfjord “tour” was through the same area for the third time. You called it a tour, but it wasn’t: there was no commentary or information given during the Nærøyfjord trip. On the Norled boats between Flam and Balestrand, there were announcements about towns we were... read more
Oslo, Bergen, Geirangerfjord and Ålesund - 10 Days · Norway - Jul 28 - Aug 6, 2019
This trip was absolutely magical! Ingrid listened to our interests and constructed a trip that allowed us to see a good spectrum of Norway and participate in activities we enjoyed. Ingrid is a great communicator and answered all questions in a timely and straightforward manner. She also gave us suggestions on places to consider for meals and activities during our free time in Norway. We felt like we had a good balance of free time and activities during our vacation. We could not be more pleased with our KimKim experience!
Experience Oslo & the Western Fjords - 10 days · Norway - Jul 21 - Jul 29, 2019
Although the trip was enjoyable overall -- and Ingrid was fabulous -- there are several areas in which improvements could be made. First, I would provide more detailed traveler information. Such as for arrival at Oslo airport, include instructions for how to pay for and get on the Airport express train. Detailed instructions are important for first-time visitors. Then, upon arrival at the Central Train Station in Oslo, include instructions such as "look for exit marked "[fill in name of... read more

Working with Ingrid was amazing from start to finish! She listened to our preferences, built us a trip around them, and provided a detailed and highly organized trip plan. Her communication was wonderful and answered any questions we had. We particularly loved the breakfast at the Thon Hotel Cecil in Oslo, and the kayaking adventure we had in Fjaerland! We cannot recommend KimKim and Ingrid enough!
Oslo, Bergen & Southern Norway - 12 Days · Norway - Jul 8 - Jul 19, 2019
My wife and I just enjoyed a wonderful 12 day trip through Norway.

We wanted to travel to Norway with several family members and everyone had different ideas of what they wanted to do and see in Norway. Plus, some of our party were going only be with us for part of the vacation. So, our needs seemed to be a little complicated, and things did change during the planning phase.

I went to Norway with my mother and we had a wonderful time there. Everything was perfectly planned by our extremely enthusiastic specialist Ingrid! She was very prompt when it comes to solving any queries I had regarding the itenary or the place itself! We loved how she planned the itenary in the given amount of time. We enjoyed Balestrand the most. We could barely see any tourists there and it was such a wonderful place to be! Truly an advantage of having a local tour specialist!

Western Norway's Fjord Road Trip · Norway - Jul 2 - Jul 13, 2019
We loved the trip, especially Kalvåg. That is an amazing little village.
A couple of improvements:
Flåm was beautiful- but they don’t allow kids younger than 12 months on the bike down and our baby was 8 months and our guide knew this. She couldn’t even fit the kids helmet. Maybe they didn’t tell her, but the experience was awful.
One of the ferries ran every 2 hours, and our itinerary said it ran frequently.
There was an overall lack of recommendations on what to see each day, We... read more
Oslo to Bergen | Explore Loen · Norway - Jun 27 - Jul 9, 2019
Stig in Oslo and Ingrid in Bergen had insights that normal guides may not have as they had lived in their respective city’s all their lives. The walking tours were exceptionally and a great way to see these city’s and also have exercise and fresh air. Myself and my three adult children thought this was a fun time together and we got many beautiful pictures.

Discover Norway's Cities & Villages - 12 Days · Norway - Jun 30 - Jul 11, 2019
Wonderful trip! Hiking the Romsdalseggen ridge was a highlight -- absolutely stunning. (One note -- we took the bus from town but learned afterwards that for two or more people a taxi directly to the trailhead is actually more cost effective). Ingrid was fantastic -- we had a few mix ups with transfers but she fixed it immediately.

Let me start by saying this was by far one of the most amazing trips I’ve had. KimKim is an excellent place for customizable tours and for those looking to travel independently with just hotels and transportation pre-booked. I was in Norway for 8 days in April and Ingrid helped me plan and organize my stay, and accommodated several itinerary changes from my side 😊. She gave me multiple suggestions for hiking and sightseeing (including maps and distances) in the cities I visited. The whole... read more

We had a wonderful and memorable family vacation in Norway and I felt so blessed to be led by the kimkim Team! Thank you!
