Jeff Nagel

Firearms Manager

Languages: English (Native), Swedish (Limited)

Whether he’s on white-water rafting adventures in the American West or skiing the Rocky Mountains in Colorado, guiding outdoors has always felt natural to Jeff. He maintains the highest level of safety in the Arctic as a firearms master for polar bears. Where early detection is best practice, Jeff thrives off the demand for constant vigilance and counts his binoculars as being a more important tool than even his rifle. He is honoured to take expeditioners right into the heart of nature in some of the wildest and most remote places on earth.

His favourite expedition is Svalbard, specifically a Fjord named Hornsund. This fjord has everything from bird cliffs to magnificent glaciers to towering mountain peaks and is a hot spot for polar bear sightings in southern Svalbard. To Jeff, expedition travel is about getting away from the humdrum of everyday life to gain a truly new perspective. After a lifetime of work in different outdoor industries, he still loves learning from his fellow Expedition Team members, building comradery and exploring together.
