Markus was brilliant, from helping me to develop the idea for the expedition, figuring out a good location, route planning etc, while trying to keep the costs down. Prior to the expedition Markus was really helpful in helping me figure out the right equipment - this differed from my previous expeditions due to both temperature being warmer than I was used to, and the terrain we'd be covering. During the expedition Markus was excellent in communicating what were doing, how we were going to do it, all the while teaching me about navigation, his own methods for winter camping etc etc. Throughout our route, Markus explained to me about Sami culture, why the landscape is as it is, and how it has developed throughout history, meaning I returned far richer for the cultural enlightenment. i couldn't recommend Markus to anyone wanting to head out ski touring or deep wild Nordic skiing. I felt safe and in the right hands the whole time, and thoroughly enjoyed his company. The Explore Share platform was very helping in matching us together - the expedition wouldn't have happened with out them, as so few guides are willing or able to take people out into the extreme wilderness in winter in this way. they matched me with the right guide, so that was perfect. What needs to improve is that they wanted cash paid before I spoke to Markus, which I would never do, because of the complexity of the proposed expedition. We both needed to know each others' abilities and make a sensible plan for the trip before we could commit to it. While I appreciate $Explore share is an introductory service, for which they need a fee, finding a better way for this would be helpful. I was always going to honour the payment once the introduction was made, but obviously some people would attempt to get around it. No matter, I remain satisfied with the explore Share service, and recommend anyone to use it.
