Hi, I'm Lori!

As an Expedition Guide and Photographer I've traveled all over the world, but stepping foot on Antarctica changed me forever. Since that January day in 2006, I have been committed to sharing simple life lessons inspired by the 7th continent.

I created The Antarctic Experience to bring together a community of like-minded travelers who find Antarctica fascinating, who love learning something new every day, who believe that experiences are the best souvenirs, that animals are great ambassadors for a balanced life, and that it is possible to find extraordinary in the everyday, no matter where you are.

I aim to share Antarctica's wild and wonderful wisdom with you, because I believe a place can change your life, even if you've never been there.
