Description

Glaciers are magnificent creations of nature that stand out not just for their beauty, but for their uniqueness. Let me take you to one of the most stunning glaciers in Europe: the Steindalsbreen in Norway.

On this 6 kilometers trek, I will take you to the Steindalsbreen glacier so you can admire its magnificence. And you’ll get to explore it, unveiling all the charming secrets it guards.

Glaciers are a nature’s treat. Being able to see one is an exclusive privilege hard to compare. But being able to walk through one is simply a one in a lifetime adventure you cannot miss

As time passed, the ice flowed, and different deep crevasses were formed on the Steindalsbreen glacier. And you will get to venture through them! But don’t worry, I will make sure you are safe the whole time. Prior departure, we’ll go through some rules to ensure your safety and fun!

Also, the deeper we get into the glacier, you’ll start noticing stunning canyons that are mesmerizing. Additionally, you’ll encounter ice sculptures naturally formed, that seemed to have come out of an artist’s hand. It will be difficult to try to capture them on a picture. But I am sure you’ll get to take a piece of their beauty with every photo you snap.

Moreover the waterfalls and blue pools we will walk through are simply hypnotizing. The different shades of blue reflected on the ice, will compete with the fantastic blue skies you’ll see above you.

Do you want to explore this wonder of nature? Send me a request and I promise you will have an amazing time walking through the Steindalsbreen glacier in Norway. You can also check out this Piggtind ascent in the Lyngen Alps too, that I also guide.

About the guide

I'm a local certified IFMGA mountain guide based in Narvik. I've always enjoyed being in the outdoors since my childhood when my parents introduced me to this world. I think it's important that I facilitate parents to be able to bring the same experience for their children too!

My career (!) in the mountains started at the age of 12, when I started climbing, in particular long alpine climbs on ice, snow and rock. I'd also been competing in ski racing and cross country skiing since I was little.

My passion for climbing took me to different corners of the world; to the Alps, Peru, USA and Patagonia. However, my heart was always set in Norway and it also reaffirmed how amazing the mountains in Norway were even in comparison to the great mountain ranges of the world.
My goal is to share these local beauties in a safe manner with the mountain lovers of the world.

I like the diversity of activities in the mountains and I like them all throughout the season, let it be mountain biking, skiing, climbing or hiking. I guide ski touring, alpine climbing, rock climbing and mountain biking.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
