In these remote places where few others ventured, Sabina felt most at ease and thrived in her work. Her love for wilderness and nature eventually led her to the west coast of Canada, where she found her passion for guiding in the Great Bear Rainforest of British Columbia in 2017, leading bear-viewing tours and teaching about the ecology of this special ecosystem since.
When she isn't guiding, Sabina likes to hike to remote places. A recent highlights was her successful attempt to climb a mountain in the British Columbia wilderness, far from any trails. This multi-day adventure in the roughest terrain she had ever explored, and the reward it held, epitomizes why she loves working as a naturalist guide: to give others the opportunity to experience rare moments in nature and create lifelong memories.

Praise from Nat Hab travelers:
“Sabina was excellent! She clearly is very knowledgeable about the area's animals, plants and phenomena, like the aurora. But more importantly, she clearly cares about all those things and about sharing information about them all in a fun yet informative way. Her enthusiasm allowed us to have a richer understanding and experience. She also handled all of the day-to-day details of taking care of us exceptionally well and was responsive to all our needs, be they large or small. Plus, she's just fun!”
