Dawn Kitson

Dawn grew up in a very small village in Warwickshire and came to the travel industry in a bit of a roundabout way after studying a degree in History. After moving north to Newcastle, she started working for the company in June 2012 as a member of the sales team.

Here she gained a whole wealth of knowledge before moving onto the customer service side of things. Her job now is to assist in ensuring that visitors have the most enjoyable holidays that they can through helping them with any issues or queries that they may have.

She has been lucky to have travelled across Scandinavia and her absolute favourite experiences were in Iceland where she toured the south shore, west coast and spent time in Reykjavik on a self-drive trip, taking in the Golden Circle, Blue Lagoon and the huge variety of scenery across the island.

A close second to this experience was an autumn trip to Sweden where she witnessed the beautiful changing colours of the trees and the long daylight hours.

Her favourite destination is the Snæfellsnes Peninsula in western Iceland because the landscape is strikingly beautiful, filled with fjords, towering sea cliffs, beaches and lava fields. She quite frankly adores the main town of Stykkishólmur here, a delightful fishing village filled with colourful houses and quaint cafés.
