“It is always a great pleasure for me to share the beauty and wilderness of the Norwegian fjords and mountains, as well as our fascinating history, our culture and our development into a modern industrial nation.

For me it’s especially important to build a mutual relationship with our guests to ensure that the experience will be a memory for life.”
