“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ― H. Jackson Brown Jr.

The Arctic have been in my blood for many years. Since I traveled to the Arctic region for the first time in the winter of 1992, this has been my favorite area for true adventures. I have been working many years for a Dutch tour operator, operating mainly to Finish Lapland. Selling the Arctic region, creating packages and being tour leader for winter groups in the Arctic gave me lots of experience. In 2011, I decided to move to Northern Norway, and Tromsø became my home. I got invited in the start-up of company with the name Tromsø Safari, nowadays one of the biggest and successful multi activity companies in The North.
Now also involved in the launch of Arctic Voyager a small ship expedition company, and I fell immediately in love with the fantastic possibilities to be involved into the world of expedition cruising. The magic of the Arctic is like an open door for many of our guests to explore the Arctic. It’s vulnerable, challenging, and beautiful. Please join us to the most beautiful region in the world!
