ARCTIC MOUNTAIN GUIDES offers guiding services on the arctic mountains of Northernmost Europe. We operate exclusively above the Arctic Circle in Norway, Finland and Sweden.
Northern Scandinavia offers limitless possibilities for ski and mountain activities. The terrain varies from the white snow deserts of Lapland to the incredible combination of sea, snow and mountains of Norway's coasts. In these vast wilderness areas, there's something for everyone to ski - from wide easy snowfields to narrow mountain ridges and challenging steep couloirs.
The common factor across all our options - whether heli-skiing, ski touring or snowmobile & ski trips - is superb skiing in the breathtaking nature of the North.
Welcome to arctic mountains!!!
We Believe in the Environment
The mountains deserve our care. Arctic terrain is both magnificent and fragile. As mindful visitors, we treasure and care for our world's spectacular landscapes.
We Believe in Community
The mountains unite us. Our passion for exploring and learning is the foundation for trust, teamwork, and lifelong friendships.
We Believe in Challenge & Adventure
The mountains are forces for change. Adventure, challenge, fun, and humble awe remind us how alive and connected we are to the natural world.
We Believe in Professionalism
The mountains command reverence. At times it's sunny and warm; other times nature is unforgiving. With this in mind, we keep our level of professionalism high and keep educating ourselves all the time.
WHO WE ARE
is an experienced ski guide and Arctic Explorer. In 2008, he became the first Finn to ski, unsupported and from the coast, to the South Pole. Although a big achievement, he says that it is often just as cold where he lives, full time, in Finnish Lapland, with his British wife, Anna. They are based in the tiny village of Hetta, 300km inside the Arctic Circle. The high arctic tundra not only provides a perfect training base for Polar Expeditions but it is also a great location for dog mushing. Hence, not surprisingly, quite a bit of their time between December and March is taken up by running safaris with their 250 Alaskan Huskies.
Our guide Mika has guided since 2001. He has a strong knowledge of backcountry wilderness life by living and guiding many years above the arctic circle. He is a certified wilderness guide, EAS European Avalanche Professional, Canadian Ski Guide I and FINLAV PRO 2 Avalanche technician.
Mika's first passion is skiing and that is why the the Scandinavian mountains provide a perfect play-ground.
