Dawn Kitson

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.

Dawn is now our Sales Manager but she also loves any tailor-made requests so she is the person to come to for something bespoke! She is also well known in the office for her baking skills and a fun fact or two.

    • Seeing spouting hot geysers and huge impressive waterfalls in Iceland
    • Enjoying a thrilling snowmobile safari at Nellim complete with campfire and hot drinks at the end
