Miriam Vermeij Guide

Miriam's interest in nature led her to environmental science studies and she’s got a degree with a specialisation on soil pollution. Nowadays Miriam is a self-employed environmental planning officer working part time guiding travellers in the Arctic and the Antarctic.

In her younger years, Miriam travelled a lot with her family around Europe. She developed an interest in nature at an early age and spent most of her free time exploring the outdoors near home in the Netherlands. Her interest in nature led her to environmental science studies and she’s got a degree with a specialisation on soil pollution. Nowadays Miriam is a self-employed environmental planning officer.

In 1999 Miriam’s travels outside Europe started. Together with her husband Marcel, she travelled all around the world. In 2006 they went to Antarctica where Miriam’s passion for the Polar Regions was born. Her first trip to the Arctic was in 2011 and she has then been back several times, as a field assistant on the Dutch polar expedition (SEES) in 2015 and on the Netherlands Arctic Station in Ny-Ålesund in Svalbard in 2016.

In Holland, Miriam is a nature guide in one of Holland’s largest national parks: De Biesbosch. There she guides groups with school kids and adults on walking and boating trips. In 2017 she started out as a guide in the Arctic and in 2018 in the Antarctic.
