Courses

Valdres Fjellguider offers many different types of bespoke courses. In Norway the seasons are very defined and we take advantage of this to vary our courses, accordingly. In keeping with Norwegian outdoor tradition, all courses are driven by the participants. This means you can decide on a daily basis what will happen. After all it is your course! Click on the pictures below to find out more about the courses. If you require more information please contact us.

Spring

Spring is a wonderful time to explore Norway and especially the Jotunheim.  Winter, in all her majesty, reluctantly relinquishes her icy grip on the frozen landscape as the longer warmer days of Spring ebb in.  This is the time for long multi-day ski tours, by tent or from hut to hut, mountaineering over snowy peaks, skiing in to climb sun kissed rock and rock climbing in the valleys. See our Spring courses

Summer

Summer is a wonderful time to visit Norway.  The days get longer and warmer, the snow reluctantly melts allowing a riot of new life to climb up from the valleys floors into the mountains. For a brief moment it is as if winter never had it icy grip on these majestic landscape.  Briefly anyway. See our Summer courses

Autumn

Autumn is traditionally a quieter time in the outdoor enthusiast’s life. While Autumn may not have the longest days and certainly does not have the most stable weather, it is possible to undertake both touring and mountaineering courses in the Jotunheim.  And the mountains are simply empty and dramatic! See our Autumn courses

Winter

Adventures in winter are always special.  There is something very pure and majestic about winter time in Norway, with the frozen landscape revealing itself as a still and harsh beauty. See our Winter courses

Guiding

Guiding in the mountains of Norway has been a noble service for over 200 years.  William Cecil Slingsby often used local guides  and  farmers to assist him up the then unclimbed mountains of Norway.  He also, late one evening on the 21 July 1876, left his friends and guides behind at a col – now named Mohns Skard (named after Emanuel Mohn) – and climbed alone to the top of Storen (Store Skagastølstind), making the first ascent of the peak that was considered then impossible.
The relationship between guide and guest is precious.  At Valdres Fjellguider we respectfully accompany guests on their dreams, offering our skills and experience to make their journey as enjoyable and safe as possible.
For more information please contact us.  We can correspond through email, phone or Skype to discuss your projects.

At Valdres Fjellguider we respect the mountains by keeping our groups small so we can see and hear everyone, leave less environmental damage and respect other mountain enthusiasts.  We only use qualified and knowledgable instructors / guides  and our equipment is top notch, new and in good working order. This is reflected in our price.  We have not forgotten about our obligations and just pack participants in to make money. That we do not do.
