Mountain- and wilderness guiding as well as teaching outdoor sports to me are fun ways of connecting people with nature, experiencing and feeling the interaction of us humans with the natural environment - following the call of the wild. Guiding people in the wild and being a partner to experience a unique time safely is a challenging task.
I enjoy both teaching skills of mountain- and outdoor sports and wilderness survival, as well as learning from the characters and social interaction myself.
Pre-conditions for my work as a guide and explorer are both proper technical training and practice, and experience. I am a certified ski mountaineering guide, a professional Telemark- and Freeskier, a ski instructor for all skiing styles, and trained in hunting and wilderness survival. I have almost 20 years of experience in leading mountaineering endeavours and expeditions world wide.
I invite you to join my trips and courses to explore new ground, challenge yourself and connect to like minded people.
Check out upcoming trips I am guiding with Grown⎜Experience.
