About your Localist

Mats

Mats is raised in both Stavanger, Norway and Glasgow, Scotland. He visited Svalbard for the first time in 1996 and moved to the high Arctic in 2007. Since then he has been a permanent resident. You can say that he got a case of "The Svalbard Bug" and the only medicine was to return to the Arctic.
He has spent a lot of his spare time to discover and explore the island. Over time, Mats has gotten to know Svalbard very well - both at land and at sea.
You will meet Mats or one from his very qualified team.
