Our guide, Anders, was awesome. We hiked Mt. Saksa when there was still snow, so the trails were covered near the top. He was extremely patient and knowledgeable of the terrain, and he didn’t hesitate to slow down for us. I was especially afraid of...More

Mitch was helpful and so well informed! We all had a great time and saved a boatload off the cost of a cruise ship shore excursion by arranging it ourselves. Only thing missing was the location for picking up the kayaks on the webpage.

We had a fantastic time kayaking from Hellesylt! The guide was very knowledgeable, and Uteguiden was very responsive when we sent messages with questions regarding the tour. If you’re staying in the area, you should definitely book a tour with Uteguiden!

We spent our honeymoon in the fjords and had two days ski touring with a guide- he was absolutely brilliant! Beautiful route, fresh snow, great equipment, no one there- perfect. I’d would recommend without reservation.
