Hi! My name is Espen. Born & raised in Northern Norway among reindeers and high mountain-plateaus, I am a passionate and professional dog-musher. My pack of 20 Alaskan huskies is part of the family, and dog-welfare is my nr 1 focus. I breed polar dogs for winter mountain excursions, and for their friendly presence which makes them perfect for human interactions. I also guide long dogsledding trips across Scandinavia since 25 years. Nature lover, I always had a strong relation with life outdoors. I share my days with my sweetheart and 2 young ones. We spend plenty of time on sleds, skis and in cabins exploring our beautiful region. I am a certified Ranger & Canoe instructor, educated in outdoor activities, and I did many winter expeditions on skis, canoes and with my dogs. I look forward to show you the hidden treasures of Northern Norway!

I had an amazing time doing the week-long adventure with Delphine and Espen. They are very knowledgable and passionate about dogsledding, which allows them to create a wonderfully memorable experience. The extra time with the dogs not only allowed me to gain a better understanding of what dogsledding is all about, but I also got to be more involved in caring for the dogs. Exploring the beautiful northern Norwegian wilderness was the cherry on top of an incredible trip. I highly recommend booking with Delphine and Espen, regardless of which type of experience you choose.
