Victoria in Yellowstone National Park, USA

Victoria, USA Specialist

Victoria's love for travel started from a young age as she travelled to the USA multiple times throughout her childhood. It's the incredible landscapes, as well as the diversity in culture, that has inspired Victoria to continue returning to America.

After studying Sociology at the University of Exeter, Victoria started a career in Event Planning. However, after travelling extensively throughout this period, she underwent a career change to follow her passion — travel.

Since joining Audley, Victoria has re-visited some of her favourite destinations in California such as San Francisco, Santa Barbara and Santa Monica, but also explored new areas including Yosemite National Park, the rolling hills of Sonoma County and the coastal towns of Monterey and Carmel. She has also travelled to the Rockies discovering the incredible wildlife and geology of Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks.

Outside of work Victoria loves to cook, sing and ski.

Santa Barbara

I recommend visiting - Santa Barbara

Santa Barbara is one of my favourite destinations in the USA. It is a uniquely cultural hub with a real Spanish influence from its early settlers. It offers idyllic weather, a rugged Californian coastline, great shopping and a vibrant yet sophisticated city life.

The city is also very close to some incredible vineyards in the town of Los Olivos, where you can take a bike tour around the vineyard before enjoying a tasting or two.

One of my favourite things to do in Santa Barbara is to take a stroll down the gorgeous white sand beach, where you might be lucky enough to see dolphins or sea lions pass by. Make sure to head up to Paseo Nuevo to taste some Mexican culinary delights at the locals' favourite Carlitos.

Hotel Wailea, Maui

I recommend staying at - Hotel Wailea

First Class

Hotel Wailea is the hidden gem of Maui. When you think about travelling to Hawaii you instantly think about a beachside location, but these hotels can often be large and very close together, meaning you don’t get the tropical feel you were after. Hotel Wailea offers a near perfect experience just a few blocks from the beach you can enjoy an exclusive hotel with just 72 suites on over 15 acres. All the rooms are dotted around their luscious gardens so with beautiful ocean views. The hotel also boasts an amazing fitness centre and pool, one of the best restaurants on the island and offers a Tesla service to take you down to their exclusive beach location. 

I'll never forget when…

My favourite travel experience would undoubtedly be my excursion with the Wolf Trackers in Yellowstone National Park. After an early pick up time of 5am, we ventured into the park in search of wildlife. Within just a few hours we had seen a black bear and her cub, a wolf pack, elk, bison and peregrine falcons. Nathan and his team are experts when it comes to animal tracking and will not only meet but surpass your expectations, not only with the wildlife you will see but also the knowledge you will gain.
