Meet our guides!

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 train or bus to our starting point, and once our journey in the forest begins, we will share interesting facts about the hidden gems we visit. Our main goal is to make you happy as well as to show you the gorgeous Norwegian forest, and hopefully you will leave with wonderful memories.

Our enthusiastic guides are from Norway, Morocco, Spain, the USA and other countries. All of us live in Oslo and are very familiar with the forests around the Norwegian capital.
