Sandra Walser was born, raised and educated in Switzerland. After receiving her Master’s degree in History and Film Studies from the University of Zurich, she decided to fulfil her childhood dream by travelling to Iceland and Greenland. During this trip she caught the notorious "polar fever" and just hasn’t been able to shake it since.
In the past few years, Sandra has been taking part in various land-based journeys and expedition cruises in Antarctica and the Arctic – first as a photographer and later as lecturer and guide. She therefore knows many “cool places” from first-hand experience.
Sandra is specialised in the history of exploration and whaling, and is a published photographer. She speaks English, German and Swiss German as well as some French and Italian. Sandra is very keen to share her passion and knowledge with Silversea Expeditions guests!
