In 2016, he once again participated in The Iditarod Trail Sled Dog 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

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.

Lars Menke

I’m 24 and come from the northern part of Germany, near Hamburg. I grew up with a family dog and over the years I build up a great bond with him like everyone else in my family. This was a big reason why I was getting fascinated by the thought of working and living with dogs. I also love to do all kinds of physical activities and like to challenge myself to learn new skills and lifetime experiences.
Doing activities outdoors in the nature gives me a lot of peace and motivation. To start working as a musher was for me the perfect fit to combine all these elements and to do this in such a beautiful part of world with northern lights and all kinds of wildlife was the final reason to leave home and go to the northern part of Norway. It’s important for me to always show up with a positive attitude and spread a good vibe to the people around me.

Przemysław Gawlik

I’m 28 and I was raised in a small village near Cracow, Poland. Since I was a child I always have been around dogs, which later turned into my huge passion. I read, learn and try to understand them as much as possible. As I learned more about the dogs I was amazed about the husky’s passion for running and how durable they can be in such cold conditions. From there it went straight to hyperfocusing on their appearances in history – Chukchi people, Antarctic expeditions, to the Great Race of Mercy, 1925 serum run to Nome, story about Leonhard Seppala and his dogs (and obviously the great Togo in lead!) and to the sled dog races like Iditarod and Yukon Quest. That’s where our Jaga, the Siberian husky appeared in our lives and we wanted to fulfill her natural destiny, which led us to decision that we would like to learn more about mushing. And here we are, seeking opportunity to learn from the incredible experience of Tore and Sandra in Active Tromsø. I’m very outgoing and open for new experiences and adventures, that’s why the Arctic circle is the destiny I always dreamt to visit. Let’s go for an adventure together!

Anna Kuc-Gawlik

I am 29 years old and I come from Cracow, Poland. I have always been involved in sport and I never stop moving. My biggest dream since I was a child was to have a Siberian husky dog. I fell in love with sled dogs and have been exploring them from an early age. I dreamed of having my herd and working as a musher with the dogs of the north. A few years ago we bought our dream dog, which changed our whole life. Thanks to her, I fell in love with running, hiking, spending time in nature and going on winter expeditions even more. I love dogs with all my heart and for me they are family that teaches perseverance, love and joy from what you do. I always look at life positively and want to infect others with this positivity. The feeling of freedom and unity with nature are very important to me, and working with dogs as a musher gives me the opportunity.

Sara Ørsted

I am 21 and I come from a small town near Copenhagen, Denmark. I’ve always had a very active lifestyle. Growing up I’ve been part of the scouts, and that’s where my love for the outdoors really aspired. I saw how happy I got from feeling the wind in my face, sleeping outside and being covered in snow, mud and sweat. After spending the last year traveling, working in different locations and learning languages, I wanted to feel that connection with nature again. Dogsledding is very much a dream job for me, as it is such a raw connection with the forces of nature and a way to experience the beauty of northern Norway. I therefore feel very privileged to be a part of Tore and Sandras team and contribute with my positive, curious and energized way of working with the huskies and the snow.
