About us

Vinternatt (winter night) saw it`s light in 2016, during an evening walk around the lake in Geilo with primus under the stars and a serious «brainstorm», I figured out that this is the best idea ever and it needed to be done. Vinternatt is Hilde is from Bergen and during this cozy winter night came the idea came alive.

I am an Outdoor educator. Sleeping outside in the winter in a tent or snow cave is something very special, I mean and nothing would please me more than to be able to share that joy with others. Many have never tried it, and it may seem like a very impossible thing that never will work. I have also been in that situation as you, but after many nights with a lot of success and error I am now  experienced in the winter camping. I am totally crazy about being able to share our experience and give you the opportunity to become confident and gain profit through a winter night.


I am 39 years, born in Bergen, emigrated from Norway in 1998 to learn about life. I ended up in Denmark where I was trained physical actor and singer. In 2007 I went to Seville for three years, a great adventure. I have sung concerts in many parts of the world and taught singing since 2005.

Now I’m finally home in Norway, educated wildlife instructor and ski instructor. Many have been in my company the first time they have moved into the Norwegian nature in winter and summer. You can also find me at Geilo as ski instructor or Filefjell as a winter mountains supervisor. Winternight is something I am passionate about and will put my soul in.

In summer, I replace the snow out with the sea, as supervisor I kayak. I inspire Danish families to get out in nature, with skovsjov. I have also been in Greenland as a kayak guide and teacher at the adventure guide technique education.
