About Ski Arktis

I am a freelance guide and expedition leader that in 2013 finished a year long guide study in Longyearbyen, Svalbard/Spitsbergen called Arctic Nature Guide and since then I have picked up other qualifications and certifications along the way. Originally from Iceland I have spent several years living and working in Longyearbyen at 78° North. My work has included leading snowmobile, ski, hiking, ATV and RIB boat adventures. In recent years I have also been working on expedition cruise ships throughout the Arctic for notable experience companies such as Silversea ExpeditionsOceanwide Expeditions and Polar-Kreuzfahrten.

In my free time between work I go on my own adventures and currently spend a lot of my free time either in Scandinavia or the Alps. You can follow my adventures here on the websites blog or on Instagram @skiarktis.

What kind of adventure are you interested in? Maybe crossing Hardangervidda on skis or snowmobiling in the high Arctic? If you are interested in private / small group expeditions, be it in Svalbard, Norway or elsewhere, feel free to get in contact.You can approach me in English, Norwegian, German or Icelandic.
