About Jens Wikstrom

Paddle Excursion Support Guide


Born in Göteborg, Sweden, Jens was educated at Skärehamn “seaman” university. Having traveled from an early age, he has been fortunate to visit plenty of exciting places around the globe. Jens has worked in the Polar Regions since 2011 and has been a full-time guide since 2014.

Jens’ passion for wildlife photography and travel are evident in his birdwatching, which he has loved since childhood. When not guiding, his travels often take him to Africa or Asia for photography and wildlife viewing.

Guiding has taken Jens all over the Arctic, from Svalbard to Greenland to the Canadian Arctic. He has also spent 2 seasons guiding expeditions in Antarctica.
