Expedition Guide

Senior PTGA logo

Kasper is a big city boy, born and raised in Copenhagen, Denmark, but has always known that his place on Earth, was further north. The longing for wilderness and high mountains came early, in his early teens he went on his first week long trekking trip in the Norwegian mountains. He comes from a Greenland loving family and therefore, after finishing his first education, Kasper went to the Arctic, never to look back.

Now, years later, Kasper has managed to make a living out of his biggest interest: the great outdoors and guiding! This has given him the opportunity to work and live different places in the polar regions.

Kasper has lived with the Inuit´s in the north of Greenland, with the Sapmi reindeer herders of northern Scandinavia and in the Norwegian settlement of Longyearbyen in Svalbard. During his years of guiding, he has been taking on a variety of activities like sailing, kayaking, all kinds of skiing, snowmobiling and dogsledding. Strongest is his love for dogsledding. He spent 4 years working with Alaskan huskies and dog mushing as a lifestyle.

Today, Kasper is an experienced full time Arctic guide, with a university education as Arctic Nature Guide, and more than 100 field days and tent nights, in the High Arctic winter landscapes every year. Kasper is a highly practical person, with a wide range of skills for safe travel in the Arctic, hiking, glaciers, sea ice, sailing and so on.

A true generalist, that has a burning passion for the cold, isolated places on the planet, both because of the stunning beauty, but also because of the rich natural and cultural history that is found here, among ice and rock.

Kasper lives together with his Alaskan huskies in Karasjok, the Sami capitol of Arctic Norway.
