AMG’s guides are all experienced mountain people, passionate about being in the mountains both by themselves and with their clients. They have a strong desire to share their knowledge and love of the mountains with others. All of our guides are happy to operate in Finnish and English and some can also operate in Swedish, Norwegian and French.

Mika Salovaara

has been guiding since 2001. In 2007, Mika gained Canadian Ski Guide Association Level 1 certification. He lives part of each year in Arctic Norway in the city of Tromsø; an ideal location for both climbing and ski mountaineering. Mika’s first passion is skiing and that is why the the Scandinavian mountains provide a perfect play-ground. However, climbing comes a close second and hence he also live part of each year in the French Alps.

Pasi Ikonen

is an experienced ski guide and Arctic Explorer. In 2008, he became the first Finn to ski, unsupported and from the coast, to the South Pole. Although a big achievement, he says that it is often just as cold where he lives, full time, in Finnish Lapland, with his British wife, Anna. They are based in the tiny village of Hetta, 300km inside the Arctic Circle. The high arctic tundra not only provides a perfect training base for Polar Expeditions but it is also a great location for dog mushing.  Hence, not surprisingly, quite a bit of their time between December and March is taken up by running safaris with their 84 Alaskan Huskies.





Anna McCormack

is British but lives in Enontekiö, in Arctic Finland, with her husband, Pasi (whom she first met in Tibet whilst they were both racing in the prestigious Raid Gauloises adventure race).   Anna has participated in and led numerous expeditions to different corners of the earth and spent over 5 years living and working in the developing world.  Along the way, she has climbed in the Tien Shan, Himalayan, European and Rocky Mountain ranges, carried out scientific research in the Indian Himalayas, SW and W Africa, led an innovative paraplegic crossing of the Greenland Icecap and explored off-the-beaten track areas of SE Asia, Central America and Tibet.
