Born in 1958, Gjersøe Gregers is living with his girl friend and 3 children. Ordinarily he is working as a pilot in SAS. His passion for the Polar Regions starts in 1995 when he visited the polar museum in Tromsø. He was completely absorbed by the adventure that surrounded the old polar explorers.

He is a simple guy as he said on his website: "I am not at all Superman, I am not especially macho and I am cold when I come out of the morning bath. But I have a strong urge to seek out adventure and make my dreams come true."
