Rescue operations in Norway has increased in the past years,

Norwegians and tourists alike, are being rescued down from the mountains.
In most cases people have lost the trail, are cold and have trouble getting back home from an adventure that was bigger than they expected.

My goal as an experienced hiker, is too enlighten you to take the precautions needed to visit our spectacular nature and return safely.

Staying Safe

Norwegians are said to be born with “skis on their feet”, and exposed to the Norwegian nature from a young age.
Most Norwegians have a healthy respect for the nature and its ability to rapidly change; but even Norwegians get in trouble and need help.

That is why we have an amazing free public rescue service that supports us  24/7.
