He ran his first Finnmarksløpet, Europe’s longest sled dog race, in 1987 and has completed the northernmost sled dog race 13 times. He participated in the world’s longest sled dog race Iditarod, where he attended and finished in 2006. Nine years earlier, like a true pioneer, he went the same course on skis with one dog.

In the 1990s he ran both Ultra Marathons and ordinary Marathons. Once, Tore ran The Nordmarka Forest Marathon in Oslo and after finishing, he boarded a flight to Tromsø to run The Midnight Sun Marathon that very same night.

In 2016, he once again participated in The Iditarod Great Sled Race to celebrate his 10 year anniversary, but this time also in The Yukon Quest 1.000 Mile International Sled Dog Race.

He’s been skiing across Greenland, Svalbard and Alaska. He climbed some of the world’s highest peaks and is half way through completing his Seven Summits.

He is a man who never sticks out his head for attention or fame, although his track record suggests that he could certainly do just that. If you are lucky, Tore will be your guide and join you and the group for some of the activities.

With more than 40 years of experience in extreme challenges and long distance sled dog racing, Tore possesses natural leadership qualities. He puts the safety and wellbeing of others before his own and that is an important value for all our guides. Any challenge of nature is first and foremost about safety, safety, safety!

Tore Albrigtsen is a Certified Instructor for glaciers, mountaineering and kayaking. He enjoys nature’s joys and challenges.

Tore and his girlfriend Sandra share a unique life. They are truly a fascinating couple, who love their dogs and have such an incredible passion for the sport of sled dog racing.

The team

Sandra Sabine Gollor
Manager

Sandra is the heart and soul of the family business. She takes care of her beloved huskies, manages the office and looks after the well-being of the team.

She has the spirit of a true adventurer.

In 2016, Sandra went on a three-month long journey in Alaska to support Tore’s ambitions for sled dog racing. She felt blessed to be a part of this adventure and fell head over heals in love with the dream of long distance sled dog racing.

One year later, Sandra successfully competed in Europe’s longest sled dog race, Finnmarksløpet, and she has many more races to come.

Sandra has a strong love for the North. She feels at home in Northern Norway and enjoys making your dreams of sledding through the pristine Arctic wilderness come true.

Dominique Clemens
Guide

Dominique has always had a passion for nature and wildlife, especially dogs, since she was very young, and she holds a degree as a veterinary technician in The Netherlands.

She loved her work, but she also loves getting out and in 2016 a true adventure was calling her. Canada became her destination. She spent one year to learn about outdoor activities, wildlife, adventure and cool weather. Dominique had the courage to following her heart and intuition. She volunteered at an animal shelter in Portugal to give stray dogs they’ve rescued a second chance at life, and in winter 2020 she started working with sled dogs in Orsa, Sweden.

Dominique looks forward to sharing her love and knowledge of sled dogs and mushing with you.
