Expedition staff

  • Tobias Brehm
  • Function: Expedition Leader
  • Nationalität: German

Tobias grew up in the Bavarian Alps, spending the majority of his time in nature. He enjoys sharing his passion for the natural world as well as explaining its fascinating phenomena.

He holds a BSc in Geosciences and MSc in Economic Geology, but his experience mainly comes from working as an exploration geologist in the mining and metals industry. Tobias has worked on projects in Australia, Iceland, Greenland, the USA, and Canada.

His position within the industry focused on remote, helicopter-based fieldwork in areas that few people have the chance to see.

Tobias has traveled widely, visiting Alaska and some of the lower 48 states, Peru, Oman, and much of Europe, but he feels most comfortable in the rugged, mountainous terrain of the polar regions.

He has worked in the expedition cruise industry since 2014, visiting various areas of the Arctic and Antarctica. While at home, he spends his time climbing mountains, exploring caves or abandoned mines, and working for local mountain and cave rescue teams.
