Nadine Ponte

Merchandise Operations Manager

I have been leading the Merchandise team at Quark Expeditions for 8 years. I completed my undergraduate degree in Environmental Studies, and after working and traveling for 5 years, I then completed my MBA at SDA Bocconi in Milan, Italy. My passions for nature, travel and fashion are all fulfilled in my role at Quark Expeditions, where I provide passengers with the highest-quality gear to stay warm and dry during their expedition, as well as source mementos for passengers to take home, to remind them of their awe-inspiring experience in the Polar Regions.

What advice would you give someone traveling to the polar regions?

Get outside as often as possible, and dress in appropriate layers so you can enjoy every incredible experience without getting cold. Our Polar Gear Packages will provide you with all the essentials you’ll need.

What’s the most important lesson you’ve learned from traveling?

The most memorable moments occur when things don’t happen as originally planned. Go with the flow and let yourself be guided to experiences and places you would have never imagined possible.
