Åsa Lindgren Guide
Normally Åsa's work consists of planning and conducting research expeditions to the Polar Regions; Antarctica, Svalbard and the Canadian and Russian Arctic. She previously worked for the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) in Nairobi, with projects focusing on ecotourism.
Malenthe always had a fascination for the polar areas, thus when the University of Groningen offered classes about the Arctic she quickly signed up. Since then her love for the Arctic has only grown.
When in Groningen she organizes lectures and activities that are related to the Arctic. Moreover she has done research on Arctic terns in the town of Ny-Ålesund (Svalbard).
Malenthe is a fanatic hiker in summer and in the winter season she works as a ski instructor in Austria. Besides that she is a Master student in Marine Biology with a focus on the Arctic regions and new technologies. Since the summer of 2014 she works as a guide for PolarQuest, a job that she loved from day one.
