About me: I am a Norwegian adventurer and wilderness explorer. My youtube channel focus on outdoor wilderness adventures and exploration, backpacking, hiking, canyoneering, skiing, climbing and mountaineering. Nights spent in a tent, alone or with friends. From the snow covered mountains and misty fjords of Norway and Scandinavia to the remote plateaus of Yellowstone and the debts of the red canyons of Utah to the summit of Mt Whitney and the heart of Sequoia Kings Canyon National Park.

  • I'm a Korean. You're so cool

  • Great video, really showcased the area! Nice to see I'm not the only one struggling sometimes😅

  • Har nå sett flere av videoene dine fra nasjonalparker i USA og fra Norge, utrolig vakre steder der som her og ganske annerledes landskap på mange måter, og ikke minst endel strenge regler for ferdsel som er uvant for oss nordmenn som er vant med å stort sett fyre bål der vi vil, gå der vi vil osv. Veldig interessant å få se litt fra "en annen verden", så takk for at du har laget alt dette!

    Virker også til at de pakker mye lettere sekk der, ikke fatter jeg hvordan dere får til under 20kg på 8-9 dager(dere gikk så lenge i Yellowstone bl.a) og atpåtil med hikingsko og ikke solide fjellstøvler! Skjønner ikke at kameraten din tar den sjansen faktisk..
    Jeg ender nok på minst 27-30kg på to ukerstur ihvertfall. Men er jo trent for det så det er greit. Fiskeutstyr veier jo en del pluss at jeg nok spiser mer enn hva jeg ser dere gjør underveis. Kokekaffe er et must for meg bl.a, et kok om dagen pluss pulverkaffe om morran 😉Har også Soulo som deg, men foretrekker faktisk Hilleberg Nallo2 som veier det samme og i samme solide materialer men gir deg luksuriøs plass og et stort fortelt. Soulo er solid ja, men Nallo tåler like mye om du ser bort fra vintersesongen. Har aldri opplevd å få ødelagt et Hillebergtelt og kjøpte mitt første i 1995(Akto) og det holdt i 13 år faktisk med et snitt på vel 100 netters bruk i året.

    Men en ting skiller jo Noreg og fjellturer i telt fra USA ser det ut til, og det er været😊. Ser ut til at det regner i kortere intervaller der, her kan det jo pinadø regen i uker i strekk.. Jeg har drevet med typisk norsk villmarksliv, stort sett alene, fra jeg var i slutten av tenåra(er 51 nå) og er det en ting jeg husker så er det..regn. Jada, masse bra vær også selvsagt men de lange soloturene på to-fire uker hvor mesteparten av tida bestod av regn av og på og i tillegg sur vind og kaldt har etsa seg inn i sjela… Elsker det uansett jeg, men kjenner jo litt på at det var litt enklere å elske det å sitte ute og fyre bål på vidda mens regnet pøste, for å lage middag eller frokost, dengang jeg var i tyve og tredveåra. Det var noe med det å takle utfordringene ved å steike fiskefangsten over bålet og ikke trekke inn i teltet som en annen "feiging". Hehe😄. Vel, jeg fyrer fortsatt stort sett bål da, men har en multifuelbrenner(MSR) så det blir mye fyring inne mens en ligger i soveposen når det regner. Det trekker opp vekta selvsagt med drivstoff.
    Var i sommer sammen med dama i Børgefjell etpar uker og noen dager i Rago, den siste er noe av det fineste jeg har sett i Norge faktisk. Børgefjell er selve villmarkssentralen for oss som fisker og loffer rundt i villmarka, kanskje ikke så interessant å bare vandre gjennom.

  • You are a true survivor Jarl. Thank you for all you share,it’s gotten me through dark times. Happy Holidays from USA and all of Gods blessings in the new year 🙏

  • It's an unspeakably beautiful planet…but…the north is such a jewel. 👍😎🇨🇦📷🌲💙💧💜🌏🌲

  • You are my backpacking hero, dude.

  • That manager was not a good Samaritan, not doing the effort to look for a bed for an exhausted and soaked man who, after a scary night of tempest, has been hiking for hours in cold and rainy weather. So : no meal, no chocolate to cheer you up…. I feel sorry for you. – The scenery is great, majestic, overwhelming…. Pure nature without the presence of a single human, even not an animal had shown up. I love the sound, 'the song' of rustling water. It must be delicious to drink. In all your films, Jarl, we can feel your great love for your beautiful country Norway. Haven't you ever thought of speaking your own language Norsk in a film and giving English subtitles ? Thank you for the many efforts you do to let us participate !

  • Lucky you had a good tent, hilleberg. Very inspiring, thanks for sharing 😉

  • I'm hearing new music. Wonderful!

  • Wonderful pictures and good to know that your Hilleberg can stand really strong winds. The lodges and some routes seem to be quite crowdy in the summer?!

  • Hi Jarl (smiles & hug) Quite the beautiful valleys hike. Remember that saying in that "Forest Gump" Movie when Forest said, "Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get"?

    Well, Jarl? U R like that "favorite" piece of chocolate in that box. Watching your video is like that same "discovery bite" feeling U have when U realize that "favorite" piece of chocolate is in your mouth…..

    "Thank You Jarl" for sharing these awesome & enduring Adventures with us. (hug)

    GOD BLESSES ALL.

    Footnote: U R creating it ALL Jarl. RE-remember this TRUTH. Why the "lodge" was "full"?
    U KNOW that answer…..

  • 0;27 Love that shot of the Reindeer brilliant picture.

  • 👍❤️🙏 It ‘s so beautiful and interesting hiking. Awesome!

  • One word: yikes! No, a second word: Wow! But please NorX, now that I have been following your adventures I'm allowed to worry, so please stay safe and don't be down! I can't believe that little tent withstood that night of wind!

  • 37:15 whoa ! taj mahal in the middle of nowhere !
    good thing you have the hilleberg tent. its reputation speaks for itself !

  • Hey Jarl, I'm still with you on the summer hikes just not commenting. I think this is the first time I've seen you in low moral and you could see it in your face after no rooms available. Really nice camp site at the end. Happy Thanksgiving from the States. Cheer up brother!!

  • I am curious about the ground cover vegetation in those high valleys. I think I see some short alpine grasses, but mostly it looks like twiggy stuff. Heath or heather or something like that? And thanks for giving us a peek at those bluebells. They look like a kind of campanula.

  • Amazing early sunrises. You are the master hiker! I’d probably blow away in those crazy strong winds.
    Enjoyed yet another great vid!

  • Must be some cold water in those lakes!

  • My kind of weather, unfortunately here in Africa it is scotching hot . Great video yet again. 👌

  • It’s Sunday morning I’m in the spirit praising God and turn on Jarl and he’s looking at a mountain that is called the church LOL thank you Lord praise God keep up the good work Jarl this is a great one …thank you again 😇😎🤠

  • Another excellent video Jarl! I know it's going to be a good day when I get those notifications. Loved the time-lapse tent set-up. Awesome. I laughed at "The backside of the glacier…….or the front side" lol That storm was gnarly! But your tent is a beast. There are trees that can't stand up to winds like that. I did feel bad for you towards the end of the video. I know it's all part of the experience though. Highs and lows. And congratulations btw! I saw your Instagram post about your win. Well deserved my friend! Thanks again for another wonderful adventure and for taking us along. 🙂 ♥

  • Great video! Looking forward to the next one, thanks🏕️

  • Inspirerende og flott filming! Virker jo som om du er på tur kontinuerlig gitt 😁

  • Hilleberg wind-tunnel testing complete! Awesome views.

  • Great trip, but challenging! That Hilleberg is a beast. I see you still rock that Primus stove. I have the same one, but I usually carry a BRS2000 to save the weight. Thanks for the vid

  • Bummer about the room. I wouldnt go back there either, lol. The winds were extreme! You sharing your tent set up, meal and shoes status made it very personal. I loved that. Huge Valleys to trek. Amazing. Hopefully you had a quiet night in the end. Until next one…Thanks again sir!

  • Oh wow and hour, I will be back this evening to watch this one 👏🍻

  • Hello from 🇨🇦
    Love the quality of your videos 👌 Do you ever run into bears that side of the pond? I hear Finland's got some big interior Bruins! Take care.

  • 💥 Beautiful 4K goodness from the master himself. Thank you! 💥

  • Back to Back, I love it
