Dawn was born and raised in a quiet village in Warwickshire and had not seen much of the world until an impromptu gap year kick started her love of travel. She has been lucky enough to travel all over the world, but it was her work as a Travel Expert for the Aurora Zone from 2012 that gave her some truly once in a lifetime adventures.
Dawn experienced the delights of Finland Sweden, Norway and Iceland. During her time in these countries she was lucky enough to experience a variety of things from the autumn colours of Sweden, to the natural wonders of Iceland, to of course a dazzling display of the Aurora in northern Norway.
A recent change in role has led to Dawn now focusing on the customer service side of things and she uses her knowledge and experience daily to ensure the best for our guests and is always on hand to answer any questions you may have about the trips we offer. Alongside this Dawn helps with copywriting for the website so has amassed a wealth of knowledge about almost all of our destinations so will be sure to offer advice (and a fun fact or two!)

• Enjoying a thrilling snowmobile safari at Nellim complete with campfire and hot drinks at the end
