About Fiona

Fiona operates from offices based in an idyllic rural setting within Dartmoor National Park in Devon. When not hard at work planning amazing itineraries for her clients, she often heads off onto the moor with map in hand to explore some of the remoter parts of this extraordinary wilderness.

Fiona’s 30-year career in travel began with an extended journey through the Far East, island-hopping in the Philippines and Indonesia and exploring the beaches and hill tribes of Malaysia and Thailand. She has lived in Australia, trekked to Everest Base Camp and roamed through New Zealand. In the years since, she has visited nearly every region in the world in order to be able to share experiences with her clients first-hand.

She has camped and hiked in Nepal and Bhutan, journeyed across Tibet, covered the length and breadth of India by train, ridden in Mongolia and explored the great architectural ensembles of Central Asia. Further forays include places as diverse as Sri Lanka and Jordan, Pakistan and China, Morocco and the Maldives. She’s toured Oman by land cruiser, sailed down the Nile, bargained in the souqs of Syria and made several winter visits to Russia.

Her quest to develop itineraries she knows her clients will enjoy has seen her riding gaucho-style in Argentina and Chile, exploring Peru and Bolivia, Ecuador and the Galapagos and touring the absorbing countries of Indochina. She counts an encounter with Myanmar’s Mergui Archipelago as one of her most treasured experiences.

Her more far flung jaunts stretch from some memorable corners of Japan to unforgettable polar travels which include ship based voyages in the Arctic and Antarctic, touring in Iceland and dog-sledging in Arctic Norway and Greenland.

I get tremendous satisfaction from crafting the best travel itineraries possible and in looking after my clients. It’s wonderful that so many come back time and again and have become personal friends over the years. I hardly see it as work at all as I continue to live my passion for travel through my clients.
