What is Ski Arktis?

I started Ski Arktis in 2014 with the vision to share information about skiing in Svalbard. I wanted to bring the untouched nature, multitude of peaks and the amazing freedom of skiing in the Arctic to people worldwide. In 2013 I finished a year long guide study in Svalbard called Arctic Nature Guide and  have spent the last years working as a guide for the local companies in Longyearbyen. I have been actively guiding snowmobile and ski trips in the winter and fast boat, cruise ship and hiking trips in the summer.

In my spare time I to go on my own adventures, often worldwide and share some of those here on the blog. Related to that I am also pursuing my skiing and mountaineering interests in the Alps, having done an Austrian ski instructors license in 2016.

If you are interested in going on an adventure in Svalbard, Norway or possibly elsewhere just shoot me an email and we will create an experience together. Having done my stint of daytrips I have found out that I prefer to work with individuals or small groups, mostly on multi-day trips as I feel it is most genuine and rewarding for everyone.

I am fluent in English, Norwegian and Icelandic. Speak good conversational German.
