Henrik - the guide

My name is Henrik Pernsteiner. I have worked several years as a natureguide. I am also a kayak instructor and I have been leading tours and training leaders for the Swedish Outdoor Association. Over the years I have taken several relevant classes and courses ranging from kayaking and hiking to first aid. The foundation to my expertise comes from experience. The days I have spent with my backpack, in the kayak or backcountry skiing, doing what I love - being outdoors.

ABOUT the company

Hiking the North is a one person driven company. I have several buisness partners around Lulea and northern Sweden. I work with other guides in the area and I always select partners so that I am able to give my customers the best tailor-made experience and value for their money. I try to minimize impact on the environment and always leave a tour location in the same shape or better than when we got there. I only work with companies who take environmental and social responsibility .
