Erlend Østbye Bratlie

Outdoor enthusiast from Bærum outside of Oslo.

Active cross-country skier

Erlend is originally from Bærum. He has spent most of his life in the outdoors, and after a year at a community college he decided to study the outdoors and has a bachelor degree in the subject from the college in Telemark. Erlend started working as a winter guide for us in 2014. He loves to be outdoors on skis, and has been an active cross-country skier for many year. These days he also loves the vertical element, and does a lot of ski touring. Outside of the ski season he enjoys rock climbing and has worked three seasons on the Jostedal glacier as a glacier guide. Erlend visited Svalbard for the first time in 2012. He decided that this was a place he wanted to come back to. Erlend has often been expedition leader on many of our spectactualar ski expeditions to Svalbards highest mountains: Newtoptoppen and Perriertoppen. This summer you will also meet him onboard MS Nordstjernen.
