Lisa Ström Guide and Expedition Leader
Interest in the nature and environment was what first brought Lisa Ström to Svalbard in 2001, where she undertook studies in environmental technology at the university of Svalbard. While she completed a master in biology, the interest for the arctic regions increased and she settled in Longyearbyen, Svalbard for 12 years.
Lisa has a long history of guiding people in the polar regions on various expeditions as both winter and summer guide. Dogsledding become part of her life and brought her on dogsled expeditions including the North Pole, Greenland, Canada and USA.
In 2011 Lisa was co-leading a ski/pulk expedition from Hercules Inlet to the South Pole for the 100 years celebration of the expeditions of Scott and Amundsen. In addition, she has worked as a field safety and logistics coordinator for film productions and guided for PolarQuest in the Falkland Islands, South Georgia, Antarctic peninsula and in the Amazon and Pantanal.
