Biography

Magnus Kaltenborn, 28, was born and raised in Norway. He first became interested in mushing and the Iditarod when he was 14 and Robert Sórlie won the 2003 Iditarod. He moved to Alaska in 2008 to learn about mushing from Martin Buser. After three years at Happy Trails Kennel, he went back to Norway and ran dogs there before moving to the Yukon in 2012 to train dogs there and enjoy the wilderness. He received a diploma in Northern Studies from Yukon College and has worked as a tour guide for the last two years. He and Maren Bradley operated Caribou Crossing Kennel. Magnus says that he enjoys “paddling, skiing, hunting and fishing” in his spare time.
