Meet Your Ultimate Expedition Guide
Tore Albrigtsen entered in the world’s longest sled dog race Iditarod, where he attended and finished in 2006. Nine years earlier, like a true pioneer, he went the same course on skis with one dog. He’s skied across Greenland & climbed some of the world’s highest peaks. He is a man who never sticks out his head for attention or fame, although his track record suggests that he could certainly do just that. He ran both Ultra Marathons and ordinary Marathons. One time Tore ran The Nordmarka Forest Marathon in Oslo and after finishing he boarded a flight to Tromso to run The Midnight Sun Marathon that very same night. With more than 30 years of experience in extreme challenges and long distance sled dog racing Tore possesses natural leadership qualities. He puts the safety and wellbeing of others before his own. Any challenge of nature is first and foremost about Safety! Tore Albrigtsen is a Certified Instructor for glaciers, mountaineering and kayaking.
This can vary due to weather conditions and will be chosen with safety being paramount.
