About Us

Active Norway Tours is owned and operated by Andrew Hutter. Born and raised in the US, Andrew came to Norway to study at the University of Oslo in 1980. Over the past 30 years, Andrew has been guiding in Scandinavia during the summer months and has spent more than 1,000 days on the road with groups leading a wide variety of different tours. Andrew is also an authorized Oslo guide and can arrange active or standard sightseeing city tours there.

Outside the guiding season, Andrew taught at the University of Oslo Law School for over 20 years. He has also worked in Norway as a cook, taxi driver, web editor, translator, farmhand and photo model. In his free time, Andrew enjoys going on long hikes and his travels have taken him to over 75 countries.

We only do group tours (at least 10 people), but individuals can book Andrew as a guide in Oslo through Tours By Locals. His full day Oslo Carpe Diem  tour will show you most of the city’s sights.
