Karianne loves to travel, and since she was a little girl Karianne wanted to see the world. So it was by chance that she arrived in Spitsbergen in 2003. She fell in love with the place immediately, and even though she has moved from the island several times, she always ends up right back here in Longyearbyen. She joined the Basecamp-team in April 2015 as a receptionist. After a couple of years working at the hotel, she relocated over to the expedition department as an assistant to the expedition leader where she is currently working. In her spare time she can be seen out and about on Svalbard skiing, hiking and enjoying the arctic wilderness.
