Marianne Bang Hansen

Marianne is fond of long, cold ski trips; Greenland, the Northwest Passage, Svalbard and the winter mountains in Norway.

Marianne simply really likes being outside. Short or long trips, summer or winter, by bike, in a kayak, on skis or on foot. She is positive, caring and has a lot of good humour. Works daily as a researcher on terror and trauma, teaches and supervises psychologists, and works as a volunteer in DNT and the Red Cross. She is also certified as an NPF kayak instructor.

Marianne is keen to find the rhythm on the trip and have a good time along the way, and likes to spend some time finding out what motivates the individual trip participant and how to create mastery on the trip.
