Once upon a time: In 1982, Founder and Inventor, Dagfinn Nyborg came up with an idea. He wanted to develop a cart (Cab) that his dog Churt could pull, towing children and gear to his mountain cabin in the middle of Norway. It all started as a hobby, but eventually became a business. What started as a simple cart on wheels soon turned in to the Combi-Sled, a product that had many of the same features you find in the Nordic Cab today.
The pictures above are taken in the 1980`s and show the inventor Dagfinn, his wife Bjorg, their dog Churt and their son Erik.
Today Erik is managing the family business that is Nordic Cab. Nordic Cab continues to develop and distribute quality outdoor products so families can enjoy spending time together
– wherever they go.
Nordic Cab originated in Hamar, a small town north of Oslo, right by Norway´s largest lake and just minutes from the best cross-country skiing in the world.
This area is truly ideal for field testing, as the Mjøsa bike trail runs 50km along the lake and Sjusjøen cross country ski centre boasts endless kilometers of groomed ski trails.
As the products became known, also many of our Norwegian ski heroes have tested the Nordic cab products in the wild and wonderful Norwegian nature.
