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. 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 trips. 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 most of my time either in Scandinavia or the Alps. You can follow my some of 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 hiking through the Arctic tundra? 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.
