About the guide

guide profile img

I'm a Belgian polar explorer with thirty years of experience in polar travel and expeditions. I have been to the poles on 34 occasions, for personal or guided expeditions, photo and film productions and lectures aboard polar cruises. I received the title of ‘Master Guide’ in the newly established IPGA platform (International Polar Guides Association). I'm one of only four people to have crossed the complete Arctic Ocean and the Antarctic continent.

In 2012, together with Sam Deltour, I broke the world record for the longest non-motorised expedition on the South Pole. On skis, and assisted by a kite, we travelled at least 5013km. Today, I happily share my knowledge by giving lectures and guiding aspiring polar explorers in the Arctic regions. I'm the only polar guide who can provide expedition material for twelve expedition members, in the Arctic (Longyearbyen, Spitsbergen) the Antarctic (Wolfs Fang, Queen Maud Land) and also in Kangerlussuaq, Greenland.

Please get in touch with me if you are interested in the different tours I'm guiding. We are happy to listen to your specific requests and will be happy to introduce you into the wonderful world of Polar Travel.
