About Gunilla Lindh

Expedition Guide

Gunilla was born and grew up in the north of Sweden with outdoor orientated parents. Her earliest memory was being pulled along in a ski pulka behind her mother, covered with reindeer pelts in frigid temperatures with the northern lights flickering above. This is where her love for the wild outdoors and cold climates was born.

After obtaining a university degree in Business Management Nilla quickly realized that a career in the outdoors would be her focus. Specifically, she sought to combine her experience growing up in the colder regions with her passion for wildlife photography.

Nilla prepared for her guiding career around a wide variety of outdoor adventures. She climbed 21,000 foot peaks in the Himalayas, lived for several months with Inuit hunters, crossing Icelandic ice caps on skis, toured on skis for months in Greenland’s mountainous east coast, and sailed tall ships in various parts of Antarctica and the Subantarctic region. Through all this, Nilla cemented her role as a guide with numerous qualifications in glacier guiding, mountaineering, wilderness first aid, boat handling, and much more. She has been working full-time in various roles and different parts of the Polar Regions since 2013.

These days Gunilla migrates with the seasons guiding in both the Antarctic and the Arctic with a focus on photography, especially wildlife photography.
