Founder + owner. Expedition Guide. polar Enthusiast.
Originally from Canada, Heather has worked in the polar expedition world for almost a decade and a half. As a skilled guide, she has a knack for delivering unforgettable experiences. She fell in love with the polar regions when she first visited Svalbard in 2007 and was overwhelmed by the peace of its vast landscape. Soon, she was venturing south on an expedition to Antarctica, where she has since returned to over 40 times.
Heather is committed to supporting the highest standards of professionalism in the polar guiding industry and was inducted to the Board of Directors for the Polar Tourism Guides Association in 2018. In 2020 she co-founded her second polar company, Polar Pioneer Management, with colleagues in Scandinavia.
