Doreen Lampe, our Head of Operations, comes originally from Stralsund in northern Germany. She is Norwegian now, and has been living in Norway for over 20 years.
She moved to Svalbard in 2009 and has been here ever since. Doreen came into contact with the island for the first time in 2002 when she was working as an expedition cruise guide on MS Nordstjernen, which was sailing westward along the archipelago.
Doreen is an accredited guide with many years of tour experience both summer and winter time.
She also has vital knowledge within the field of search & rescue and avalanches. She is an member of the Longyearbyen Red Cross, and has completed more than 60 hours of first aid training. Doreen is easily recognizable by her ever-present smile; she truly loves her work.
Misha Moliavko has been on Svalbard since 2015 and is a solid pillar in our Spitzbergen Adventures team.
He comes originally from Kiev in Ukraine and his special charm, combined with his desire to deliver always the best to the guest, makes him very valuable for us and our guests really appreciate it to have him as guide.
In addition, Misha is responsible for the maintance of our tour equipment.
He has a great passion for his work and Svalbard and has been with us since 2015. Misha is that Guy which never says 'No' when it comes to his work and is always smiling. We are very glad and happy to have him on our team.
