Lena was born and raised in Bergen on the west coast of Norway. She is an educated welder, but in recent years she has worked with interior design. She also has a small farm outside of Bergen and has been working as an occupational therapist at nursing homes. Her interest in nature experiences and wildlife is a major reason why she is in Svalbard. After several visits to the island, it was time to move. Lena is excited to experience all seasons, all tours and all mountain peaks in this magical landscape.
