Mountain Bike Guide
I hold a passion for mountain adventures, especially for secret gems off the beaten path.
Through the companies Svaneti Backcountry and Urørt, I have been organizing guided ski tours to Svaneti since 2013. I have first-hand knowledge of the skiing, culture, and local partners in the area.
As a mountain bike guide, I am at the top of my game in my own backyard, which consists of the local mountains, Rondane National Park and the area surrounding Røros.
Wherever we go, I am ready to show you the best trails adjusted to your level and needs.

We would highly recommend a trip with Auden. He is a very adept guide and he handles every aspect of the tour seamlessly.
