Leif Sverre

As one of the managing Directors of Island Expeditions, we focus on active learning experiences that are out of the ordinary. We focus on remote, remarkable locations that people just can't get to on their own, but the locations are chosen for their access to the best areas in Belize for the activities we do.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"We focus on outdoor, adventurous activities in Belize. Most of our ocean itineraries focus on Sea Kayaking, Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP), snorkeling, and fishing the turquoise waters of Belize's barrier reef, and outer atolls.

Inland, we hike to the top of Mayan temples, explore lush rainforest trails, and descend into ancient Mayan ceremonial caves. "

How did you get involved in travel?

"As a young man, I enjoyed traveling with my family. While attending University, I started working as a tour guide in the summer months and steered my education towards tourism. 10 Years later, working for various travel companies, I started working for Island Expeditions as their first employee in the Canadian office. Several years later, I became a partner in the company and have helped manage it for over 20 years. "

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"Snorkeling with Whale Sharks off of Gladden Spit in Belize. An experience not forgotten."
