Guide at Arctic Watch Wilderness Lodge
Tessum Weber, athlete and former ski racer, was born an adventurer. Residing in the Arctic from the age of six weeks, he is now regarded as one of the foremost arctic guides in the world.
His experience ranges from technical projects that include leading sea kayaking trips, ski expeditions and hiking/treking trips to logistical projects such as working with film crews in remote regions. Tessum recently completed an undergraduate degree in commerce and devotes his time to working in the Arctic Watch family business, while maintaining a seat on the board of Nunavut Tourism.
In 2010, Tessum became the youngest person to ever trek to the North Pole. He was accompanied his father Richard, Howard Fairbank and David Pierce-Jones on the speed-record setting expedition.
