Who am I?

Hiking with the Viking

“We are the Norse!” Coming from a long and great Norse family lineage from Scandinavia, my parents brought me to Canada from Denmark to live on this great land. I grew up on the Niagara Escarpment in Grey County and this ancient land was, and still is, my backyard playground.

In 2016, I completed the Niagara Escarpment 900 km End-to-End hike, from Queenston to Tobermory. My journey along this historical land was incredible and my knowledge of it’s history deepened with every step.
