Morten was born in Copenhagen and has always loved the natural environment and especially its wildlife. He has traveled throughout his life, as a child living with his parents in Afghanistan, Tanzania and Malaysia, while later as an adult he has visited all seven continents.
He has been working in the Arctic since 1997, on small cruise ships as guide, lecturer, Zodiac driver and expedition leader. He has also worked in the Antarctic and the Indian Ocean, among other places.
Since the mid-eighties, Morten has been an active ornithologist, a passion that has been supplemented with a love for marine mammals, whales and dolphins, seals and polar bears alike. But there are no areas of nature that do not fascinate him. He is also a keen photographer.
Morten is a skilled and very keen observer of wildlife, be it birds, mammals or other living beings. He is also very comfortable with the role of guide, interpreter or lecturer. He enjoys sharing the adventure of visiting remote areas with fellow passengers.
Morten is superbly experienced and is a real pleasure to travel with. He and I will be driving the Zodiacs and lecturing on the ship; Morten on the ecology of the area and Kevin and Peter on aspects of photography.
