Christian Øie, pronounced Oh Yeah, is the founder and guide of GOSTA.

While showing friends and couchsurfers around the area he grew up in, he developed his passion for tourism and guiding. So after working in the family business for 10 years, he decided to quit his stable job to chase his dream of starting up his own tourism company.

Other than working full time with GOSTA, Chris also works as a producer at What’s Brewing (Beer Festival), a host at Tou Scene (Culture House) and Do’er at Reserveverten (Airbnb host).
