Kristin Harila

My name is Kristin Harila, I’m 35 years from Vadso/Norway.

I’m a former cross-country skier. These days I’m a mountaineer, runner and skier. In 2019 I quit my job as Chain Manager, to live my dream.

Since then I have travelled, led and soloed long ski expeditions and climbed a series of high mountains.

Including the worlds highest mountain Mount Everest and worlds fourth highest mountain Mount Lhotse, together in record time.

Now I’m heading for new summits!

Expeditions are typical of me. I have always chased new goals. There is always a mountain or a snow-covered highland waiting.
