Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep, Oct
Ersfjord is a fjord in the island of Kvaløya, in the Tromso municipality, in northern Norway. It is surrounded on both sides by high mountains falling right into the water. This 2-day ridge traverse of Ersfjord is an amazing long climb that takes us along the entire Ersfjord.
Our adventure begins in the little village of Rekvik, on the west side of the island, with the Skamtind summit, and finishes at Blåmann (1044m), the highest peak on the island. During the whole traverse we climb 2800 vertical meters, covering a distance of 16 kilometres.
This spectacular climb follows narrow ridges, summits and pinnacles along the fjord, until we reach Blåmann. Please note some parts of the ridge are very exposed and will require roped climbing.
Along the traverse, we will also pass other mountains, like Storstolpan, Brattbergtinden, Store Hollenderen, Brattbergtinden, Styrmannstind, Melketind, Zappfetoppen and many more.
If you want to be part of this amazing ridge traverse, send me a request. Book your trip and we will start planning this great climb in Tromso. You can also check out this trip Climbing Otertind in the Lyngen Alps that I also 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.

I had a very good experience booking the hike through Explore-Share. Communication with the team was prompt and clear and the booking process was seamless. The trip itself was also just perfect. Uroš was a fantastic guide, highly skilled and talented. The hike felt safe at all times, even on more exposed routes, thanks to him. He was always up to date on the weather forecast and planned the days around it, checked the conditions on the route ahead of me, if needed, discussed and adapted the routes to my level and always made sure I was safe and comfortable. I highly recommend him, as well as Explore-Share.

Explore Share is a really usefull website that has a great overview of reviewed guides for a (in our case) hiking/climbing trip. During the booking I got assigned an assistent for Explore Share that helped solve questions that I might have. Great customer service, and I will come back again.

Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned a lot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!

It's the 2nd time we have been booking with Explore-Share. The booking was super easy and both Explore-Share and the guide were fast in their responses. We did rafting as a family with 3 kids for the first time in Slovenia. The guide (José) was super nice. He was doing everything he could to make everyone at ease with rafting (he gave clear explanations), have a great team spirit (we were joined by 2 other girls) and have a good time. We had lots of fun and the nature there is so beautiful. Thank you Explore-share and Soca splash for the great afternoon! I would recommend this activity to anyone without a doubt. My kids immediately told me they want to do rafting again soon !"
