Stefan Kredel, Geologist

Stefan Kredel grew up in Murnau, in the south of Germany. After training as a paramedic, Stefan conducted several cycling trips by himself through India, Nepal, New Zealand and South America. In Nepal he walked the Annapurna Circle Track, in New Zealand he hiked various National Parks and in Peru he followed the Inca Trail to Macchu Picchu. He studied Geology and Palaeontology at the “Ludwig Maximillians University” in Munich, receiving his Masters degree in 1999. Various excursions during this time lead him through Germany, Austria, Italy and South Africa, where he visited some of the biggest copper, gold and diamond mines in the world. In one gold mine he descended more than 3000 meters below the surface.
He has been a lecturer on board expedition cruises since 1998. His first voyage was to Antarctica. Since then he has visited this fascinating area every year on several occasions. His knowledge also extends to the North with visits to Svalbard, Jan Mayen, Iceland, Greenland, Hudson Bay, Northwest Passage, Inside Passage in Alaska, Aleutians, Kamtchatka, the Kuril Islands, Franz Joseph Land and the very north itself – the North Pole. He has sailed the West coast of Africa more than once, has visited the many Islands of the South Pacific between Japan and Easter Island, and has ventured through the exotic Amazon, sailing between Belem and Iquitos.
