Since joining us in 2013, Mark has visited Scandinavia and Iceland on numerous occasions and loves all things Nordic. One of his most recent highlights was a visit to Svalbard during the Polar Night season when he saw auroras throughout the day and night.

Other winter highlights include husky sledding across Lake Inari in Northern Finland and taking a dip into the icy water beneath the frozen surface of the Tarendo River.

During the summer months, Mark has observed brown bears and wolverines in Eastern Finland and also yomped up to Trolltunga high above the Norwegian Fjords. Some of his other highlights include walking on the black sand of Vik and being bounced around in a superjeep in Iceland. Some Swedish highlights include visiting Skane and the archipelago of West Sweden to experience charming boutique hotels and exquisite cuisine. Mark also rates visits to the Scandinavian capitals for a mixture of old and new.
