About Miranda Unger

Expedition Guide
Miranda loves being in the outdoors, on the water, and having the chance to share and explore the unique world we live in. She has been working in the Polar Regions since 2018. Captivated by the beauty of these ice-covered regions and the diversity of wildlife, she eagerly awaits the reactions of your first encounters.
 
Born and raised in Toronto, Canada, Miranda’s interest in marine life and ecosystems was sparked visiting the intertidal zones on the east coast of North America. She graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and German and did further postgraduate studies in Marine Mammal Science. She then spent her summers on Canada’s St. Lawrence river in a partnership of scientific research and tourist education as a marine biologist researcher/guide for cetaceans, and as a Zodiac captain. She found her sea legs on a unique expedition to circumnavigate the North Atlantic Ocean on the tall ship, SS Sørlandet.
 
The most memorable take-away from our adventures is that unique connection gained when experiencing the Polar Regions firsthand, which enriches all your senses!
