There is so much beauty to discover on this beautiful floating rock we live on! I truly believe that travel, if done responsibly, teaches us meaningful life lessons about ourselves and the world around us that are incomparable to any other form of education.
I am originally from Detroit, MI but I moved to Norway five years ago; I was instantly drawn to the country's vast and unique beauty. In Norway, and worldwide, I have spent the majority of my adult life traveling through different scopes: including eco-hotels, hostels, backpacking, camping, road trips, and more. I use these experiences to create tailor-made trips so you can revel in the magic of Norway firsthand.
What places and activities do you specialize in?
"I crave activities that allow us all to thrive off of natural beauty and discover a deep connection with local culture! I specialize in fjord tours, arctic adventures, mountainous escapes, and coastal exploration on land and in sea throughout all of Norway. Sustainability, collective wellness and community inspire my activities to get acquainted with local cuisine, history and landscape. I can help you navigate a trip to explore beautiful Norwegian nature, quaint small towns, or urban areas including Oslo, Stavanger, Bergen and Tromsø."
How did you get involved in travel?
"Exploration was a deep desire of mine since I was young. I did the stereotypical 20-something backpacking trek through Europe, and quickly discovered that my connection to travel meant so much more when I could stay in one place, get to know people, and give back to the communities I visit. I slowed down my travels and started volunteering my way around the world - I worked in private homes and public organizations for varied causes like plastic cleanup, yoga teaching, sustainable farming, and animal rescue. From these ventures, I discovered how truly electric, enlightening, and earnest travel can be. This led me to develop meaningful travel knowledge to help create valuable memories for others."
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"It's hard to choose just one! Every trip I've taken has been unique and beautiful in its own way. One of the most amazing experiences I had was visiting a permaculture farm and eco hotel in the middle of a Costa Rican jungle. It was a muddy two hour jungle walk just to get into the property; I saw snakes, poisonous frogs, butterflies as big as my hand, and fierce howling monkeys before I even got to the hotel. The trees were the brightest green and the water was the most electric blue. During my stay on the farm, I volunteered with locals and international travelers to utilize renewable resources, make meals from the farm we worked on, generate the land, and produce as little waste as possible with a humble lifestyle. Staying in the jungle was a slightly risky, tremendously beautiful and overall unforgettable experience."

We don’t think Tricia is familiar with the area we traveled. She gave us insufficient, incomplete and some cases wrong information. We were fortunate enough to get help from our Norwegian friend who guided us throughout our tour. Without our friend’s help we would have been in a very difficult situation. The selection of hotels was very good except for Malangen Resort. The room offered a very good view but it was shabby and outdated. The floor was loose and, when you walk on it, it bounced.... read more
