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.
