Svante Strand
Svante Strand is the owner and expedition leader of Newland AS. Svante is a qualified engineer, who trained at Trondheim School of Engineering. After studying, he completed his first year of military service in para-ranger training, and the next seven years in the Special Forces Counter-terrorist unit in Norway and abroad. He has also worked as a firefighter for one year, and has been an instructor on countless courses in the military and with civilian groups.


The last 12 years, he has run an events business, and has therefore become a highly skilled organiser and planner. He has led large-scale events for the world's largest ICT company, and logistics and safety are two of the strong skills he takes with him into the world of expeditions. Svante's dream and goal is to deliver trips to exotic destinations or make traditional trips a little more exciting. Svante has been guiding on many trips over the past 15 years, and Newland looks forward to working with you with our passion for expeditions. Newland's focus is entirely on quality and safety. We look forward to exploring ‘untouched ground' with you. In some cases, we will use other highly qualified guides with a lot of experience with regard to the arctic conditions, winter training, survival, medical, etc.


We can guarantee you some of the world's best guides who are ready to make your trip an experience for life. Some of our trips are also set up with "guest guides" to make your trip that extra bit special.
