Erik was given one task and that was to create Norway's Coolest Christmas Party for the CompEdge gang.

Throughout the last 48 hours, we’ve had 2 exceptional chefs from Salten Salmon in the kitchen from early morning to late evening, flown a helicopter over the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Laponia, went on a boating excursion in Saltstraumen, fed sea eagles, had outstanding wine tastings, drove dog sleds under the Northern Lights and had homemade food from Pitesamene.

The alternative was a traditional Christmas party with dinner at a restaurant followed by a party until late in the night. Instead, we bonded over once in a lifetime activities, creating meaningful memories and stories that will last forever.

I’m very impressed! The surroundings I woke up to this morning was just like a dream. It´s just amazing to be here!

I had to pinch my arm when I went skiing into the mountain world. This was the best cross country skiing race I’ve ever participated in! With these surroundings, it was just absolutely amazing! This is just like when Samaranch said in the ceremony during the Lillehammer Olympics in 1994, “the best Olympic Games ever!” And this has to be the best cross country skiing race ever! With these surroundings and these trails, absolutely amazing!

Going here hunting and fishing has to be an adventure of a lifetime.
