Hvitserk is Norway's leading provider of expeditions and adventure holidays.
Hvitserk is what the Vikings called the highest mountain on Greenland - which during the time of the Vikings used to be a part of Norway. When the toughest Vikings sailed west from Iceland on a voyage of discovery, the 3,693-metre-high mountain on the east coast of Greenland was an important landmark. After they left Iceland, they didn't see land until the white, snow-covered mountain emerged like a lighthouse in the distance. In the same way as Hvitserk served as a ‘lighthouse’ for adventurous Vikings 1,000 years ago, the company Hvitserk now serves as a 'lighthouse' for people with a desire for travelling and adventures.
For more than 30 years, Hvitserk has organized exciting journeys for adventurous people to all corners of the world. At the same time as we have taken people to exciting destinations abroad, we have also built up an extensive network in Norway. We have skilled guides and local partners across the length and breadth of our beautiful country. In recent years, more and more Norwegian and foreign guests have joined us on trips to unique Norwegian nature experiences!
We also have extensive experience of extreme trips and demanding logistics. Hvitserk was the first Norwegian operator to offer expeditions to the South Pole, and no other Scandinavian tour operator has accompanied as many guests as we have on skiing expeditions to the Antarctic. No other tour operator in the world has accompanied as many guests on skiing expeditions across the inland ice of Greenland, and we have organized several skiing trips to the Arctic, and climbing expeditions to the peaks of the Himalayas.
