John Blyth

Assistant Expedition Leader, Expedition Team

John finds connection to water and wild spaces. He splits his time between travelling the north as a consultant, and a devotion to paddlesports.

Join John Blyth on the following trips:

Growing up in national parks across the Northwest Territories started John off with a love of wild spaces and the people who live in them from an early age. Taking this passion, he went into the study of Archaeology and Anthropology, and has been living and working in the Northwest Territories as a multidisciplinary consultant in the fields of environmental science, anthropology, education, and wilderness safety for over a decade.

John has always been one to shy away from holidays to sunny beaches and as a result has ended up travelling or living in many places across the circumpolar world including: Svalbard, northern Scandinavia, Greenland, many communities in the Canadian Arctic, and even Yakutia in the far east of the Russian Arctic.

When he’s not travelling or working John spends his time kayaking the big waters of the Slave River, ice fishing, hunting, or working on his linocut art at his home in Fort Smith, NT.
