The Arctic summer and its lingering daylight allow ample time to discover Norway and Svalbard, with their abundant wildlife and stark natural beauty—journey by Zodiac and on foot, meeting the region’s hardy residents.
Originally from Sweden, Mats has worked in the adventure travel industry since 1982. With an appreciation of nature and a deep understanding of the Arctic region, he has spent the majority of his career bringing travelers to some of the world’s most remote areas. He has also served as general naturalist aboard a variety of expedition vessels that have taken him from Svalbard, Greenland, and the Canadian Arctic to Antarctica, the tropical South Pacific, and up the Amazon River. Along with his work in adventure travel Mats also runs his own photography business in Norway.
