Raised in Saint Petersburg, Russia. She has been a dancer and obtained her master’s degree in economics. Daria moved to Finland in 2011 where she went wild and immersed herself in nature. She spends winters above the polar circle and summers in Norway guiding as an adventure guide snowmobiling, back-country skiing, glacier hiking, and sea kayaking. She is a certified wilderness and nature guide and holds a medical wilderness first responder and boating certificate. When Daria isn’t working, she is ready for a new adventure or challenge, whether it be hiking in the mountains, developing sea kayaking, discovering new cultures, or even paragliding. She also continues studying wildlife and in particular the behavior of birds, believing we should all be more engaged with nature.
