Expedition Leader. Dog Musher. Storyteller.
Originally from Sweden, Rickard began his polar career working in a kennel in Svalbard in the Norwegian high Arctic. Fast-forward a decade and he’s stood at the North Pole five times, traversed Svalbard by dogsled, trained the British Army in Canada’s Rocky Mountains, and worked as a professional ships officer and wilderness guide on expedition vessels in Norway, Svalbard, Greenland, Iceland, the Falkland Islands, South Georgia and Antarctica.
Rickard’s storytelling spirit and passion for polar history are beloved elements on our exclusive Twin Tracks 12-passenger expeditions.
