Featured Experts

Lykke Geisler Yakaboylu
CULTURE LECTURER

With family ties to Greenland’s west coast, Lykke’s passion for authentic local traditions only grew during her 20-year career at the Greenland Tourism Board. Her desire to authentically share Greenland with visitors led her to create a unique guiding company focused on the landscapes and villages she holds dear. While her home is in Denmark, Lykke frequently returns to Greenland to spend time with extended family in Nuuk and to share her love of the country with guests ranging from active adventurers to scientists.

Alex Pancoe
EXPLORER IN RESIDENCE

Upon summitting Mount McKinley in Denali National Park in July 2019, Alex achieved what very few have: the Explorers Grand Slam. It was his recovery from a brain tumor diagnosis at 18 that inspired him to climb the seven tallest peaks, with the goal of raising a million dollars for the hospital where he had received care, Ann & Robert H. Lurie’s Children’s Hospital. Alex lives in Chicago and is currently training to climb “the savage mountain” of K2 in Pakistan.
