Kirsty Wood

Kirsty regularly plans travel based on her passion for the ocean and the life in it and has been lucky enough to swim with wild dolphins in New Zealand and snorkel along the Great Barrier Reef whilst holidaying in Australia.

Next, it would be her dream to go on one of Artisan Travel’s holidays to the Azores or Madeira to see the marine life on offer there, and would love the opportunity to go back to Iceland for some more whale watching.

Kirsty also loves the snow and is fascinated with countries that are completely different in the winter and summer. She has been fortunate enough to see Iceland in both seasons but would love to experience Finland and Norway in the same way. Kirsty loved the experience of travelling to Finland in winter, especially exploring the incredible landscape whilst riding a snowmobile. She would love to return to the Arctic Circle in summer months to witness the incredible scenery under the light of the Midnight Sun.
