Description

Want to learn about ski-touring and avalanche safety in the Jotunheimen Mountains in Norway? Then I have just the experience for you. Come with me on a three-day trip where we’ll teach you everything you need to know about ski touring.

Safety is our number one concern so we’ll start the trip by going over the theory of ski touring and avalanche safety training. Then in the evening we’ll eat a hearty locally sourced meal and get to know one another.

Day two is where we’ll get to experience the slopes. I’ll help you out with your technique and we’ll put into practice everything we learned the day before. This will involve using alpine hiking equipment and seeing how avalanche safety awareness works in a practical setting.

After a day on the slopes, we’ll head back to the cabins for more delicious food. There may even be time to warm up in a hot tub. We’ll finish the day in front of a warm fire.

We’ll make the most of the time we have on the third day to get back on the slopes and practice our technique. Then we’ll all say our goodbyes.

This trip is an awesome way to get a great grounding in ski touring while enjoying some stunning surroundings and good food. Sign up today and I’ll be waiting for you on the slopes!

If you’re looking to learn more about avalanche safety, I also offer a three-day in-depth course.

Hiking Guide

With Gjende and Jotunheimen right here in my backyard, it's hard not to spend every waking hour outdoors.

Ever since I was a child, I have been drawn to the natural world. Years later, I still find myself standing in awe of the mountains of my native Norway. Regardless of the season, I work and play outside in the beautiful landscapes that surround me.

While I enjoy many outdoor sports and activities, I must say the mountain biking terrain here in Vågå is hard to beat.

I look forward to exploring my backyard with you on your next adventure!

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.
