What our guests say

Thanks a lot to Vegard and I Fri Natur for an amazing nature experience!

The last 4 days we have been climbing different peaks in Henningsvær adapted to our skill level and progression. We got to feel the rush of trad climbing while still feeling safe and protected

Vegard is a very skilled instructor who has a burning passion for what he does, and I can surely recommend him!

Vegard is and is percieved as a highly skilled instructor and guide! He has a special way of conveying to others how to travel the mountains safely and well.

Vegard brought us to Kalle, Pedersen Ryggen and Pianohandler Lunds route. During all the trips, learning and safety is the main focus.

I recommend Vegard in the strongest manner! ?
