Ombline Chabasseur

Expedition Leader

Always attracted by sports in nature, her passion for Polar Regions really started when she decided to live in Finland to finish her studies. She was very impressed by the beauty of the landscapes, the serenity, the silence and the wildlife… From then, she dedicated all her free time to these areas, first of all in Svalbard, then Greenland, and she finally worked in a travel agency specialized in these regions, where she created on-demand trips.

Ombline finally left the office to become a guide in these areas and worked all over the Arctic and Antarctic for more than 12 years now. Either guide or expedition leader, she gives all of her energy and knowledge to make trips unforgettables!

As she loves nature, she also takes part in trips in tropical areas and spend some free time to create naturalist expeditions to contribute to science!
