Frederik is an excellent guide! He was confident, reassuring, professional, safe and very skilled. My boyfriend and I are still enthralled with the experience. Thank you so much again, Northern Norway has captured my heart and I definitely will be returning for more adventures :)
Stian was awesome, highly recommend him.
The guide was not Stian but Haakon. Calm and professional. Ir was a fabtastic experience, I highly recommend this guide!
Stian was fantastic!
Great experience! Though the weather wasn’t the best, Stian made sure we all had a pleasant time on the climb. Loved that he provided all the gear which was great, especially since we were visiting from another country:) Originally I wasn’t going to do the climb due to time constraints since I needed to be at Tromso by 17:30 but he adjusted the time frame for my group so we had plenty of time to do the climb and so my partner and I could go back and drive to Tromso airport:) We absolutely liked the service he provided for our group and highly recommend him as a guide to future climbers since you can tell he loves what he does for a living:)
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures.
