We are a team of guides from all over the world with one thing in common – a passion for nature and for meeting new people. We will take great care of you and guide you by tram or bus to our starting point and once our journey in the forest begins we will engage in interesting conversations with you and share interesting facts about the spots we visit. Our main purpose is to make you happy as well as to show you the forest and hopefully you will leave with a wonderful memory.
Our enthusiastic guides are from Norway, India, the Netherlands, USA, Belgium and Germany. All of us live in Oslo and are very familiar with the forests around the Norwegian capital.
