Craig Dunning

Originally from Hartlepool, in the North East of England, Craig moved a short while up the road to Newcastle-upon-Tyne for University, where he completed an undergraduate degree in Journalism, Media and Culture. University kick-started his love of Marketing, as well as a desire to remain in the city of Newcastle.

Craig has always had a passion for travel and has been fortunate enough to go on holidays around the world. This has included trips to the Gambia, New York City and skiing in the Austrian Alps, although the less said about his skiing ability the better. He is yet to visit any of the Nordic countries, but Iceland and Finland are at the top of his travelling bucket list.

Visiting the Blue Lagoon and the natural relaxation that it offers has been at the top of his Bucket List for as long as he can remember. Since starting at The Aurora Zone, Craig has learned about the glass-roofed Aurora Cabins at Saariselkä, which allow you to enjoy the magical Northern Lights from the comfort of your own bed. This was quickly added onto the list.

Craig started working at The Aurora Zone in February 2022 as a Marketing Assistant. Developing his marketing skills whilst working in an industry that he is passionate about have been his favourite aspects of the job and he is hoping to try one of The Aurora Zone trips soon.

Bucket List:

Iceland - Visiting the Blue Lagoon

Finland - Spending a night in an Aurora Cabin at Saariselkä and watching the Northern Lights from the comfort of his own bed.

Sweden - Going on a husky safari and immersing himself in Scandinavian culture.
