Anne Avellana

Anne climbed her first mountain at age 3, learned to ski at 5, and scraped up her hands riding a bike at 6. Growing up in New England, she has cheerful memories of hiking the high peaks of the Adirondacks, skiing at Sugarbush, and swimming in very cold water in Lake Winnipesaukee. Her childhood goals included going to the Olympics, traveling to Australia, skiing in Colorado and learning to scuba dive.

After earning a philosophy degree from Colgate University and a master’s degree from the University of North Carolina, Anne set out to collect as many interesting experiences as possible. Her personal philosophy revolves around three main things: spending time outside, traveling to new and unfamiliar places, and helping people along the way. Some favorite adventures include trekking in New Zealand, rafting the Futaleufu and Zambezi rivers, kayaking with orcas, island hopping in the Philippines, skiing the Tyrolean Alps, and escaping a sinking dive boat in the British Virgin Islands. She has also worked at several camps for children with serious illnesses and at a hospital for women in rural Niger.

Anne manages Nat Hab’s polar bear and northern lights tours in Churchill and the Alaska grizzly ship program. Her daily life includes hiking, biking and skiing as much as possible while introducing her young daughter to a life of adventure. Updated life goals include thru-hiking the John Muir Trail, heli-skiing in British Columbia, diving in the Maldives, and stepping foot into North Dakota (her 50th state!).
