Years of experience

Alex is our Chief Operations Officer and Aurora Expert, or Chief Aurora Expert. He has been working in the travel industry for over 25 years, with 14 of those years dedicated to Scandinavia and Iceland, where he first experienced the aurora in 2010. Developing a passion for all things Nordic, Alex has traveled to the region multiple times and is perhaps one of the luckiest when it comes to witnessing the aurora, which he jokingly claims he carries around in his back pocket.

Alex is well-equipped to discuss various locations and provide you with the best chances of seeing the aurora while ensuring you have a fantastic time exploring other activities and accommodations. With numerous visits to Iceland, Swedish Lapland, Finnish Lapland, Northern Norway, and Svalbard, he is your northern lights guru, capable of tailoring options to ensure you experience as much as possible during your visit to the Nordic region.
