Saskia Travert - assistant expedition leader
Saskia comes from the small Island of La Reunion and even though she is a tropical girl, shares her time mostly between the Arctic and the Antarctic. She started in 2005 as a shopkeeper and Zodiac driver on board an expedition ship sailing to Antarctica and the next year joined a Russian Icebreaker on which she circumnavigated the Arctic and nearly all of the Antarctic. In order to thaw up a bit Saskia sometimes takes tropical work in between the Arctic and Antarctic seasons.
Saskia works now for Poseidon Expeditions as an Assistant Expedition Leader on board the nuclear powered Icebreaker 50 Let Pobedy going to the North Pole and the new ship of the fleet, Sea Spirit, sailing the Arctic.
