We are the founders and owners of the business AKILPO. Experts in what we do, we share the same traits; a passion for our work, a concern for constantly rethinking our strategies and skills within the industry, and finally our experience in the tourism industry.

“I’m an enterprising, ambitious and decisive person, always aiming to achieve the highest possible standards in any task with my pro-active and dynamic approach to work. I don’t only sit in an armchair in the office, but also actively exploring new trekking routes over 10 years now.”

“I am a big fan of trekking off the beaten track and am also tour leader for many of our expeditions, which compliments my love of the arts as I like designing maps and trekking routes for my clients. I like leading a work/job in a team, discovering what people are best at and in that way helping people by offering them a solid and ethical job.”

“Enthusiastic about my work and fun, I am a leader and guide specialised in trekking. I like to manage successful work in a team as well as carefully supervising each project’s logistics. Obsessive with order and discipline, qualities which I believe form the basis of good performance in any venture.”
