How It Started
Kristin Harila, hailing from the very flat village of Vadsø, embodies the spirit of a self-made icon. Born with a passion for the outdoors, Kristin quickly realized her love for winter sports and cross-country skiing. However, it was her fearless attitude and exceptional talent for mountaineering that set her apart from the rest and made her a phenomenal climber.
Following her resignation from her management job in 2019, Kristin has dedicated her life to pursuing her dream of climbing the world’s highest peaks. She has conquered Mount Everest, the world’s highest mountain, and Mount Lhotse, the world’s fourth highest, in record time, cementing her place as one of the world’s best mountain climbers.
