KAJA MATHILDE STRØMSVÅG

KAJA5.jpg

Kaja grew up on the magic islands of Lofoten, and naturally developed a passion for spending time in the great outdoors. This passion made her choose a high school education that specialized in flyfishing, guiding and entrepreneurship. Kaja's love for fish, fjords and mountains brought her to Steinkjer, Alta and Svalbard to continue her education in the field of nature conservation and nature-based adventure. 

Kaja is a certified Arctic Nature Guide and is currently in her last year of the bachelor's degree in outdoor activities and nature-based guiding at UIT, The Arctic University of Norway. During her year on Svalbard she crossed the island from east to west skiing and went on a sailing expedition with SailNorway from Tromsø to Longyearbyen. In everyday life quality time spent with her dog in the neighborhood forest, cooking dinner on the bonfire and watching the northern lights, is a treasured activity. She loves new adventures - big or small, and to share the joy of these experiences with others!
