About David Allcorn

Assistant Expedition Leader


Dave moved to the Canadian Arctic in 2006 and now calls this wild region his home. He has worked for many years as an interpretive guide and science technician. Dave regularly guides trips throughout the arctic, be it on land, or on water. He has been continuously involved in arctic research projects, including flora surveys, bird counts, snow sampling, ice-coring, and monitoring the polar bear and beluga whale populations.
He has been part of the Quark Expeditions team since 2013 and has completed many voyages through the Canadian Northwest Passage, East and West Greenland, Iceland, Svalbard, Russia, and even the North Pole. In the far south, Dave has completed numerous voyages to the Falkland Islands, South Georgia and Antarctica, where he continues to be awestruck by the magnificent landscape. A passionate naturalist, Dave loves the vastness and silence of these magical places. He has a great respect for the Polar Regions and their flora and fauna. Dave is also a big fan of the challenging conditions of the arctic winters. He is always looking forward to being outside and sharing his knowledge through stories, exploration, and infectious enthusiasm.
Above all else, Dave loves watching guests soak in the pristine beauty of the Polar Regions!
