Lykke Geisler Yakaboylu


Greenland is one of the few places in this world where nature still plays a role in our daily lives. I’m proud to say that my ancestors survived in the Arctic conditions and would like to share my passion for this great island of ice, glaciers, mountains, and the small communities with travelers from around the world, but in a sustainable way that allows us to grow. If we don’t respect and protect our nature, it will no longer be a reason to go. I’ve engaged in Tenson’s Community with Purpose to share my passion and learn more from my peers about how we can essentially make the world a better place.
