Emily is a Canadian businesswoman with a wide range of interests, starting in the business world as an engineer and later owning and managing a software development company. Even as a young child growing up in Switzerland she showed an unusual desire to explore nature and later became an avid rock and ice climber, skier, mountaineer, sailor and long-distance runner. She has skied and sled-hauled on a North Magnetic Pole Expedition, a South Pole Expedition and also guides clients on ski and sled hauling expeditions across Baffin Island.
In recent years she completed a horse trek in Outer Mongolia, and climbed the Matterhorn, Mt. Kilimanjaro, Mt. Elbrus and Mont Blanc among other mountains in the Alps, Canada, Russia and Argentina. In 2007 she ran the prestigious 89 km Comrades ultra-marathon in South Africa, and the San Francisco 24-hour race. Through years of world travel, especially in the Polar Regions, Emily has accumulated an extensive knowledge of other cultures and exploration history. She is a member of the Explorers Club, a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, and in particular has been involved in ship-based tourism for the last nine years as an assistant expedition leader and zodiac driver to the Arctic and Antarctic regions. On a totally different level she is known in the Canadian artistic community as a stone sculptor. In particular she is a member and past vice-president of the prestigious Sculptors’ Society of Canada.
|Expedition Staff (whether or not advertised
in our brochures) are usually booked many months in advance
of the holiday and sometimes they become unavailable, even at
very short notice. If this happens, we will always do our best
to make suitable alternative arrangements but any such change
shall not be regarded as a major change and we cannot be held
liable or responsible in these circumstances.
