            I take visitors to Cape Town on guided, private off-the-beaten-path day trips. I’m a journalist, photographer and tour guide.The prehistoric San bushman rock art (cave painting) exploration trip to the Cederberg mountains outside Cape Town is a unique adventure as it takes in a hike in the African wilderness as well as art, archaeology and cultural history. You’ll get to see and experience this ancient art in the place it was painted thousands of years ago, learn about early man – our human origins – and hike through pristine African wilderness to access the painted rock shelters.

              I was born with a passion for the map's blank spaces. Exploring them is where I feel most alive and am filled with the greatest sense of wonder and intrigue for the world around.As Nabokov once said..."nostalgia in reverse, the longing for yet another strange land, grew especially strong in spring.” Shall we go forth?

                Amaru Bolivia, based out of Cochabamba, Bolivia, provides authentic experiences through sustainable relationships with local communities in Bolivia and neighboring countries.For examples, travelers can canoe to the community of Mapajo deep in the Amazon, and join the Mosetén tribe as they gather medicinal plants in the forests or fish the rivers as they have for centuries. Or visitors can turn quinoa farmers and llama herders for a day (or longer) with a local Quechua family amid the salt flats, smoking volcanoes and geysers of southern Potosí.

                  Born & raised in Northern Norway among reindeers and high mountain plateaus, I raise Alaskan huskies and guide long dogsledding trips across Scandinavia since 25 years.I founded my company in 1998. Nature lover, I always had a strong relation with life outdoors. I share my days with my sweetheart and 2 young ones. We spend plenty of time on sleds, skis and in cabins exploring our beautiful region. I am a certified ranger & canoe instructor, educated in outdoor activities, and I ran 5 times the longest sled-dog race in Europe, the Finnmarksløpet. I look forward to show you Northern Norway!
