I had a fantastic trip with Uteguiden to Sæbø and the surrounding area. The trip was well planned and challenging for everyone involved, the guide was knowledgeable and great company. 11/10 would recommend and travel with again.

We spent our honeymoon in the fjords and had two days ski touring with a guide- he was absolutely brilliant! Beautiful route, fresh snow, great equipment, no one there- perfect. I’d would recommend without reservation.
