What people are saying about Mountain Climbing | Norway



Magnus was simply the best guide we could have hoped for! A fantastically experienced, safe and fun person to successfully take us up the summit of this incredible mountain. He was also incredibly kind in helping to facilitate me proposing to my girlfriend (now fiancé) on the summit and to safely bring us back down to earth again, for which we’re both very grateful! The climb itself was a truly memorable and wonderful one. Though physically arduous and exposed at times, it was totally worth it for the magnificent views and with Magnus, there wasn’t a single moment where we felt at risk. Huge thanks for a perfect trip!
