About This Guide
Tore is head guide and Manager of Active Tromso, his business is centred on the beautiful island of Kvaløya, on Norway’s northwest coast and he specialises in sea kayak tours and in the winter months, dog sled tours. Tore (pictured below in the world’s longest sled dog race Iditarod, where he attended and finished in 2006), is one of Norway’s top wilderness guides and nine years before, like a true pioneer, he went the same course as the Iditarod, but this time on skis and with just one dog!
In the 1990s Tore 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.
Tore has traversed Greenland by ski, climbed some of the world’s highest peaks, and finished many dog sled races. 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.
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! Safety! Safety!
Tore Albrigtsen is a Certified Instructor for glaciers, mountaineering and kayaking. He loves nature’s joys and challenges.
