@the_outdoorgirl Just spent a few days on a cabin, away from civilazation, away from WiFi and phoneconnection. Winterseason is ending and summerseason has begun. Spring has arrived on Svalbard. The snowmobiles are replaced with boats and kayaks. In a few weeks we start hiking again. Another summer guiding in the high Arctic. What will this summer bring? So far, 2019 has been raaaad #happy#bettermomentsas#polarguide#arctic#stillcoldashell#svalbard#spitsbergen

@nicolasdanyau Polar Bear family. These two polar bears are most likely about two years old and it is time for them to become independent from their mother. As they become adults, they will spend most of their lives alone, until they get a family of their own. • To watch them walk along the cliffs, play, down climb steep terrain, get in the water, swim along the shoreside and play with seaweed (which I’m not sure if they eat or not in desperate times) was a real gift. • • #polarbears #arctic #svalvard #norway #livesimply #seatosummit #sailing #expedition . . #polarregions #globalwarming #polarbearawareness #travel #explore #travelinuencer #outdooreducation #travelgram #instatravel #workandtravel #bestfriend #chilenoviajando #lifeisbetterinthemountains #mountainlife #patagonetravelin #wild #wildlifephotography #family #photooftheday #hope #polarguide #osopolar

@womanscientist Well it used to be cool to take the boat under the iceberg arches until people realized how dangerous they can be when they unexpectedly collapse! You’ve got to remember that from the surface we’re only seeing about 10% of the volume and mass. Over 90% of the rest is underwater. If a good portion of that thing cracks the whole thing is going to rebalance. #watchout #playsafe #guidelines #iaato #massiveice #safetyfirst #polarguide #antarctica #cheeseant19

@nicolasdanyau I’m really grateful to be able to have a job that I LOVE doing. Even more so, I’m #grateful to be able to do it with THE one I love the most . • Expeditions, adventures, exploration and traveling are amazing, but sometimes can be lonely. Yes, we are traveling the most incredible and remote corners of the #planetearth, but it has a price to pay. We are away from home, family and friends for long periods of time . • I work with amazing people who wish they could have their partners with them. Some others who wish they could find the right person to share this lifestyle with, but both options are really hard to get . • @sarahmerusi to me, everything makes sense because of you. We are collecting stories and memories to one day share with our kids. Thank you for being brave, strong, passionate and respectful. Thank you for being solid and always practicing what you preach. Thank you for being yourself 🙌🏼🙏🏼🙌🏼 • • • #lifeisbettertogether #polarregions #arctic #svalvard #norway #livesimply #seatosummit #sailing #expedition . . #thecathedralsofourreligion #travel #explore #adventure #travelinuencer #keepitwild #travelgram #instatravel #workandtravel #getoutthere #earthpix #chilenoviajando #lifeisbetterinthemountains #mountainlife #patagonetravelin #wild #photooftheday #shemovesmountains #polarguide

@womanscientist Because Antarctica is so remote it’s really good to have emergency skills in case of worst case scenarios. Before embarking the ship we spent a day building those tools. How to flip an over turned boat, tie knots, safely lead hikes, etc. Incredibly valuable. If we feel comfortable knowing how to respond in those situations we can hopefully feel comfortable helping others! #emergencypreparedness #survival #polarguide

@womanscientist “Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” - Howard Thurman I’m not sure if writing this methodology manuscript is making me feel alive, but I know it’s important as a scientist to publish the work we do and share scientific discoveries with the world. Luckily, my work also takes me into the field so memories from these remote Antarctic days keep the flames stoked during the off-season times when I’m in the lab processing samples from @fjordphyto and writing up results. #science #womeninstem #scientistswhoselfie #womanscientist #antarctica #polarguide #inspiringquotes #motivation #explorer #fjordphyto #frontiers #scientificdiscovery #scicomm #natgeo

@nicolasdanyau In this part of the world, these are the latitudes known, infamously as the Furious Fifties, where the power of wind and waves are legendary. It has been said that “Below 40°S, there is no law, but below 50°S, there is no God.” . South Georgia is exposed to some of the roughest seas on earth, and everyone who has ever visited this place has done so by sea. . For more than 300 years people have come for different reasons. Exploration, the search for adventure, whaling for profit, #research for #science, and most recently by the pure delight of #traveling to one of the most remote and #wildest corners of the planet. . @sarahmerusi I’m so glad to have done this together !! The Antarctic season is over and now is time to rest, enjoy #capetown in #southafrica, #surf, then back to #colorado, spend time with #family and #friends, have fun, #ski, #rockclimb and catch up with #movies before our next crazy adventure in the northern hemisphere. . 🙏🏼 🇦🇶 🙌🏼 ❤️ . . #southgeorgia #antarctica #sailing #expedition #livesimply #travel #explore #adventure #polarguide #antarcticambassadors #conservation #outdoors #travelgram #seatosummit #lifeatsea #mountainlife

@expeditionguideacademy The James Dean of the Arctic. The Arctic Fox lives a fast paced life. Living only 3-4 years in the wild, they have a lot to pack in. Conditions permitting, they’re able to reproduce before they’re one year old. When they do breed, they can have up to 18 kits (Svalbard fox tend to have 3-4). Circum-polar (found throughout the Arctic) in distribution, they base out of dens which can easily be a few hundred years old. The larger send can also have in excess on 150+ entrances...

@nicolasdanyau The Nomads of the frozen sea. Polar Bears, more than any other animal in these latitudes, symbolizes The Arctic. Adult males are solitary by nature, living perhaps the loneliest life on the planet. Young bears are playful and affectionate, like the ones on this photos. I feel blessed to be able to see them in their natural environment, healthy and protected (in Norway) . . Polar Bears in other countries have a very different situation. As I get closer to Greenland and Canada, I’ll share more about the situation in those countries... . #polarbear . #conservation #arctic #svalvard #norway #livesimply #seatosummit #sailing #expedition . . #polarregions #globalwarming #polarbearawareness #travel #explore #travelinuencer #outdooreducation #travelgram #instatravel #workandtravel #fotografoschile #chilenoviajando #lifeisbetterinthemountains #mountainlife #patagonetravelin #wild #wildlifephotography #whitebear #photooftheday #oso #polarguide

@nicolasdanyau Svalbard Reindeer ! These guys are freaking awesome! They have short legs to regulate better their body temperature. They feed out of lichens and mosses. They move as little as possible to conserve energy, but they’re really fast if they need to run! They have a white winter coat that is long and hollow and they shed it in the summer. Females keep their antlers during the winter to protect the young ones and males get rid of their antlers in the late fall. This means Christmas Rudolf the #reindeer was always Rudolfina, together with all the rest of the female reindeers pulling Santa Claus’ sleigh!

@expeditionguideacademy Currency through practice. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Co-founders put in some range time in #svalbard during a port day. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Revisiting and refreshing skills is an important part of professional guiding. Throwing throw bags, firing rifles, using a GPS all require as much currency as knowing local flora/fauna, geology and history. The difference being, these skills don’t matter until they really matter. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Are your skills current?

@nicolasdanyau Polar Bears are unique species. Even if bears are considered land mammals, Polar Bears are actually, as their latin name (Ursus maritimus) describes them, marine mammals. In order to survive, they need the oceans and sea ice, which are both under mayor changes affected by climate change #climatecrisis. It is very special to be able to see them up close, in their natural environment and it is up to every single one of us, humans, to make a difference in this planet. No mater where we are in the world, whatever our actions are, we need to care. . . #polarbear #conservation #arctic #svalvard #norway #livesimply #seatosummit #sailing #expedition . . #polarregions #globalwarming #polarbearawareness #travel #explore #travelinuencer #outdooreducation #travelgram #instatravel #workandtravel #nature #chilenoviajando #lifeisbetterinthemountains #mountainlife #patagonetravelin #wild #wildlifephotography #photooftheday #hope #polarguide

@polar_katya Calypsobyen was named after a HMS Calypso used by the English Expedition in 1895. It is located at the entrance of Recherfjord. The English Northern Exploration company extracted coal there in 1918-1920, that time the settlement looked like a village. Some buildings are still in good condition and maintained as a cultural heritage site but also as a summer field hut used for research purposes by Polish scientists #arctic #svalbard #history #heritagesite #adventure #travel #expedition #explore #nature #polarguide #oldbuilding #coalmining #explore #ourplanetdaily #natgeob #natgeoyoyrshot #poseidonexpeditions

@polar_katya Jan Mayen, is an uninhabited island, a Norwegian territory. Here is the research station and a runaway. The active stratovolcano is on the island, and everything is covered with ash. Anyway, more than 70 different species of flora is described here, pretty a lot for the high latitudes and the isolated island! #arctic #janmayen #janmayenisland #norway #travel #adventure #explore #ourplanetdaily #theoutbound #bbcearth #natgeo #natgeoyourshot #ash #volcano #stratovolcano #instagoodmyphoto #climate #polarguide #view #expedition #poseidonexpeditions
