Magdalene Blakeson

Husky guide Magdalene Blakeson

Meet our Husky guide, Magdalene Blakeson, born and grew up in beautiful Vermont in the US. Magdalene has explored the nature by skiing, climbing, trekking, skijoring, running and of course dog sledding. She has actually spent five summers living on a remote Alaskan glacier with 150 Alaskan huskies, guiding sled dog tours.

– I have always loved the north and it seems like every few years I choose to live even further north. From Vermont to Canada to Alaska, then to Sweden and now Svalbard, Magdalene smiles.
– But I think I may reach the limit this time. I really want to experience both the ruggedness and delicacy of this unique place on the planet along with a community full of interesting people who choose to live amongst the polar bears.

Magdalene holds a Master in Exercise Science and Bachelors in Kinesiology and Psychology. At Basecamp Explorer Spitsbergen she will guide our guest into the wilderness with huskies and sledges.
