Explore the wilderness of Northern Norway with Arctic Outlaws


About Arctic Outlaws

​Welcome to the arctics of Northern Norway!


We are dedicated to helping visitors get safe, insightful, and unique SKI EXPEDITION & WINTER CAMPING experiences, with camaraderie, sharing, and fun as the driving force.

While on tour with us we demystify and make simple the essentials for you:

  • Dressing up to keep warm and comfortable

  • Back-country skiing while pulling a sled

  • Navigating the terrain

  • Pitching an expedition tent

  • Preparing meals using gas burner and melted snow

  • Sleeping comfortably in the arctic winter night


Being on tour with us you are invited to be an active participant, and, having learned new skills, you will leave with a sense of proficiency wanting to explore further on your own.

No special equipment or prior knowledge to skiing needed.

We are located in Northern Norway in the remote Pasvik Valley - the scenic narrow strip of land between Russia and Finland - near the town of Kirkenes.

Arctic Outlaws is a startup adventure company that will be ready to receive guests as from January 2023.


Our web page is scheduled to be ready for commercial use by August 2022, with thorough information on our tours:




You are, naturally, most welcome to get in touch before August with inquiries.


Arctic Outlaws has been underway since 2020, with ongoing invaluable sparring from Innovation Norway, Orinor, and Sør-Varanger Utvikling. As per April 2022, we are terminating a comprehensive trial season to test out trip concepts based on an in-depth market survey conducted in collaboration with Kreativ Industri.

Who are WE?


Esben/tour guide. Dane with a background in teaching, entrepreneurship, tourism, and management.

"I have from an early age been passionate about adventurous activities and the great outdoors and have always been fascinated by the early explorers navigating their way through uncharted territories, wondering what they would find behind the next hill.

After living in Denmark, Zimbabwe, and Brazil, I was fortunate enough to get the opportunity to work with arctic winter tourism - dogsledding, king crab safari, and snowmobile guiding - in Northern Norway, and I immediately felt a strong connection with both the area and the guiding role.

With the arctic winter right at my doorstep, it was also natural for me - having done several long-distance bicycle touring trips in remote areas - to transition into arctic ski expedition traveling. Thus, over the past years I have systematically obtained a formal training background as well as I now have solid personal experience in planning, preparing, and executing arctic ski expeditions.

I enjoy 'transporting' myself instead of being transported, and I am drawn to simple living and environments where basic things that we normally take for granted - food, water, warmth, etc. - are scarce. It teaches me to stay humble and respectful to nature and people, and to appreciate life, and this is what I hope to convey to our guests."
