Being raised in the north, my parents took me hunting, fishing, gathering, and skiing at an early age. Spending most vacations on the island of Senja, the sea and boat life has a special place in my heart.
With a track record from the University of Tromsø, the Norwegian army, and a short career as a carpenter - I have experience from different fields over the last 20 years. My last position in the tourist industry before Covid was with Hurtigruten Cruise line as an expedition leader along the Norwegian Coast. Here I had a broad repertoire of responsibilities ranging from safety to budgets and was especially fond of the hosting role conveying the beauty and history of the Norwegian coastline from Bergen to Kirkenes.
The Arctic Moments was founded in 2017 as an adventure company with a focus on the Scandinavian outdoor life traditions friluftsliv. Since then I have taken both individuals and groups of guests out on excursions lasting from a few hours to whole days/nights.
Safety and feeling as part of nature...
What some previous guests have said
Thank you very much Reidar for everything! For an amazing aurora hunt, pictures, campfire, coffee, soup, and Norwegian Kitkat lol! I will never forget this wonderful experience! :)
I would definitely recommend Reidar as a guide. He is a really nice person with good experience in outdoor activities in the area. Thank you Reidar for this unforgettable experience !
His love and passion for chasing the Northern Lights is infectious and because I went with Reidar in his car, we were able to go to some secluded spots to find the Northern Lights. It's a no wonder he has a 90% success rate in finding the lights
In this tour, our awesomely bearded guide Mr. Reidar took us to a tranquil valley south of Tromsø, to capture the best aurora pictures.
