RUNE KROGH

Owner & Guide

Greetings traveller! I’m Rune Krogh, a professional certified IPGA Guide (International polar Guides Association) with only 24 in the world.

For over 30 years I’ve been discovering the untamed beauty of the Nordland region, where I live with a family of 3 and 30 husky dogs in the beautiful Norwegian countryside just above the arctic circle.

During my professional career I’ve worked as a guide for Børge Ousland, the top contemporary Norwegian polar explorer and helped guide people to the North Pole, Northwest Passage, on Svalbard, across Finnmark, Svartisen glacier and Greenland crossing in the fall three times, going east to west such as Nansen did in 1888. I also led groups across Norway during many winter expeditions. One of my most memorable trips was crossing Norway with my one-year-old daughter, going west to east.

I’m an educated specialist in rope rescue services with the highest level of rope access available (Level A-3 Supervisor) and 13 years of experience climbing the Norwegian oil rigs.

I’m also an educated welding inspector specialist with many certificates in NDT. I have worked as a foreman, safety leader, inspection planner, coordinating teams offshore with over 20 oil rigs on my CV. During years of practice I’ve had tons of adventures with dog-sledding, climbing, mountaineering, and vertical extreme caving, which I now want to share with you!

Our Beyond Limits team can organize almost any activities adapted to your needs. We offer unforgettable Norway crossing trek from East to West, as well as mountaineering, climbing, ice climbing, and summit traverses, arctic kayaking and so much more. I always do my best to deliver amazing experience tailored to fit your limits.

Because once you accept your limits, you can go beyond them!

Nature & Landscapes

Nordland is a wild and beautiful area, often referred to as Norway’s largest secret diamond. Just North of the Arctic Circle are still remainings of the ice age that once dominated the landscape here north. Norway’s second largest glacier Svartisen is located right outside our doorsteep. It is easily accessible and that is where we are located. We are happy and proud to call this our home.

 

The Svartisen glacier (The black ice) calves’ large amounts of ice into Lake Storglomvatn. Here we can paddle around floating icebergs while we hear the crackling and rumbling from the Glacier. You can really experience the primordial power of nature with self-vision. In the summer time we go skiing on The Black ice and feel the heart filled with joy as we experience the contrast between winterland on the glacier and Summerland in the fjords that lie beneath us.

We invite you to see this with your own eyes.

WHAT DO WE DO

We bring you to adventures in a beautiful and wild nature shaped through many ice ages

Travelers from all over the world often ask us if Nordland is a good place to travel for someone who wants to experience wild nature? Will I be able to meet the challenges that nature offers? Is it suitable for all ages, families or just for someone who is a bit more adventurous?

The answer is always yes!

The nature around Svartisen glacier is one of Norway’s largest hidden treasures. We have it all! From the most accessible glacier in Europe to the most beautiful beaches, and the toughest caves in the world. Experience winter in the middle of summer, paddle around floating icebergs or paddle into white beaches for a swim.

For many years, we have designed tours to suit your needs, wherever you are. Our untouched nature has a secret for everyone! Join us in paddling in the arctic environment, climb the glacier in the middle of summer, experience untouched nature or hike across Norway. Stand at the summit of Svartisen’s highest mountain, visit our beautiful national parks Lahko, Saltfjellet or Rago National Park. Climb into the dark of our deepest caves using.

With Beyond Limits on the team, there are no limits to what you can experience! You can climb mountains, go skiing in the summer, paddle under the midnight sun and rappel down mountainsides. Or simply sit down and enjoy the wonderful scenery we have in Nordland. Let us show you the most beautiful places in Norway.

The only way to discover the limits of the possible is to go beyond them into the impossible.
