"As a travel photographer finding a reliable local guide is one of the most crucial factors for a successful project abroad. Before arriving to Norway, I received a recommendation to hire the services of Espen. I am really glad I have.
Espen turned out to be a kind, hard-working professional who too much care and notice not only to the safety of the production but also the success of the project. I couldn’t recommend enough on Espen services. If you are heading to Senja, there is no one better than Espen Minde".

"Just returned from a spectacular seven-day ski tour trip in Norway, and I cannot rave enough about the experience! Everything was top-notch, from the breathtaking snowscapes to the exceptional service provided by our knowledgeable guide Espen.
The snow conditions were perfect throughout the trip, allowing us to fully enjoy the diverse terrains and stunning vistas of Norway's picturesque mountains. Our guide was not only friendly and experienced but also highly skilled in navigating the slopes and ensuring our safety. They were always ready to share interesting tidbits about the local culture and history, making the trip even more engaging.
The food was another highlight of this adventure. Every meal was delicious and well-prepared, with plenty of options to suit various tastes and dietary preferences. It was evident that our hosts put a lot of thought into crafting a diverse and satisfying menu that kept us energized for our daily excursions.
This trip was truly an unforgettable experience, and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a memorable skiing adventure in the majestic Norwegian landscape. Can't wait to return for another round!".

"We spent one week in Hamn I Senja, organized by Espen from Legendary Adventure. Our experience was nothing other than outstanding. Everything worked smoothly from beginning to end.
The accommodation was comfortable and in a beautiful setting. The food was very good, there was a nice selection at breakfast with the opportunity to make our lunch pack as we each liked. Amazing salmon sashimi! The best I’ve ever eaten.
As for the guiding, Espen and Juho (the guide for our group for the week) did a fantastic job. We felt safe and Juho made very good decisions throughout the week to keep us safe. Every day we were touring alone or with only one other group in the same area. Fresh tracks and incredible scenery every day!
The excellent vibe in our group that Juho and Espen could feel and integrate into. We were smiling from ear to ear and cannot wait to go back for more. I would highly recommend Legendary Adventure for a northern Norway trip of a lifetime.".

Espen is one hell of a guide!
We had an amazing time observing the northern lights! He picked us up in front of our flat, brought us to an amazing place with no other tourists and took great pictures for us.
He took such great care of us, making a nice fire and even very tasteful hotdogs (Veggie options as well- what an attentive guide! (Thanks so much)!
Espen has great knowledge and explained to us everything we wanted to know! As he is a local, you get really into Norwegian culture and habits.
It s just such a different experience from the tours we booked with bigger organisations.
We can strongly recommend Espen as a guide for any tour you intend to do. We will hopefully be back in this magical region and can enjoy other adventures with Espen and Legendary Adventures.
Thank you again-we had the time of our lives!

We really enjoyed our bicycle tour over Tromsø island, even though it was very cold weather... but we had a funny ride and learned a lot about the island and saw very nice places around Tromsø!
It was a perfect day, I can highly recommend!

If you want to experience Tromsø as a local, this tour is a can’t miss experience. Our family of 5 riders ranged in age from 13 to 66. We have biked together before on city tours throughout the U.S. Everyone rated this one a favorite! First, the e-bikes were top-of-the-line and our guide, Espen, took the time to show us how to use them properly. He had us practice before beginning the rise. We appreciated his patience and focus on safety. We travelled along the shoreline and through local parks. We were lucky to see groups of families together celebrating Midsommar with bonfires on the beach. It was so special to see this annual event. Our journey continued through the more wooded areas of Tromsø and we all appreciated the e-bikes on some of the tougher hills. We saw many local areas and sites that showcased Tromsø as a great location as a place to live or for travel. Espen was a wonderful guide for this tour! As a native son of Tromsø, his love for his community was evident at every stop. If you are looking for a fun ride exploring the city of Tromsø with a friendly and knowledgeable guide, this is it!
