Staff World of Greenland
Lotte Cecilie L. Søndermark – CEO
I came to Greenland for the first time in the summer of 2017, working in Ilimanaq Lodge. The big scales of untouched nature had a paralyzing effect on me from the very first second, and when I left a few months later I knew I had to come back. Since I graduated in 2014 i have mostly been abroard working very diverse jobs all over the world. What makes traveling so fascinationg to me is primarily the adventures provided by nature and the ability of active living in great contrasts. As CEO I feel priveleged being able to combine this passion with my sense of planning. Greenland has got so much potential and I look forward to developing and showing you this potential through our many tours.
Kristina Kruse – CFO
My addiction to travel started on a 9 months work and backback tour through Australia just after high school. That was quickly followed up with a trip through India, Nepal, Indonesia and the Philippines. Afterwards I began my studies. A short wintervacation in Greenland convinced me, that this was the place to be! Thus, the following summervacations were spent working in Greenland. After finishing university, it was time to move the daily life to Ilulissat. Shortly after moving, I bought sledge dogs and foundation was made for the most fantastic adventures.
I love winters snow, northern lights and dogs. But also longs for the summer to arrive. A summer that lets you hike to gorgous places, sail among icebergs, whales and to glaciers. But if I have to narrow it down to one time and place, it has to be Glacier Lodge Eqi in August, a place to relax with a view!
Tina Olsvig Madsen – Key Account Manager
I am born and raised in Ilulissat. I love traveling, but my home is Ilulissat, where i love sailing in the summer catching supply for the long dark winter. I am an optometrist, but have worked with tourism several times and have fallen for it. In World of Greenland I started as a guide and coordinator 2 summers. With the company increaseing I am now daily at the office, where i answer e-mails and plan ahead.
Simone Kølle Petersen - Senior Guide
I sommeren 2007 var jeg på ferie i Grønland, og det gjorde et dybt indtryk på mig. Jeg blev betaget af roen, menneskene, naturen, den friske luft, lyset og de store vidder man ikke finder andre steder end i Grønland. I vinteren 2008 vendte jeg tilbage og kørte 4 dage på hundeslæde. Det var så fantastisk, at jeg kort efter min hjemkomst søgte arbejde i Ilulissat og flyttede hertil.
Siden 2013 har jeg arbejdet som guide i World og Greenland. Jeg har altid holdt af at være ude i naturen, og som uddannet socialpædagog har jeg haft mulighed for at forene det med mit arbejde med børn og unge. Jeg nyder at fortælle om livet her og den smukke natur. I min fritid kører jeg hundeslæde og sejler om sommeren.
