Colin Thornton

I am a born and bred Scotsman who lived in the French Alps for 10 years and now find myself based in the incredible Romsdal region of Norway. I have spent the past 20+ years exploring mountains in countries all over the world. I have run, climbed and skied in France, Italy, Switzerland, Spain, Scotland, USA and Norway. I have completed multiple high level running races such as The Leadville 100, The Bear 100, Angeles Crest 100 and the Ultra Tour Monte Rosa 100 miler where I finished 4th overall. I have also ran many of the Skyrunning World Series Races such as Trofeo Kima, Tromso Skyrace and Glen Coe Skyline. I love to get out into the mountains any minute I can to run, climb, ski or just a simple hike. I enjoy sharing my passion with like minded people whether they are seasoned professionals or complete beginners. I would love to help you discover the best of Romsdalen.

Hélène Hubert

I was born and raised in Paris but quickly moved to the Chamonix valley in my early 20's due to my passion for the outdoors. I have completed many trail races such as the Grand Trail Courmayeur 55km in Italy, The 70km Grand Traverse in Colorado and the 57km Trail Dents du Midi in Switzerland to name a few. I have spent countless hours exploring trails and mountains in numerous other countries such as Scotland, Spain and Norway. When I first came to Romsdalen I knew I had to spend more time here in this quiet, remote and truly special place. Welcome to Romsdal!
