After graduating from Sheffield University, Nick spent time undertaking charity work alongside Prince William in remote parts of southern Chile. Taking advantage of this unique opportunity, he then went on to travel extensively through Bolivia, Peru, Argentina, Uruguay and Brazil.
Embarking on a career with Audley Travel has enabled Nick to further develop his interest in the landscape and culture of the continent he loves. As part of his role, he has returned to South America on several occasions to expand his knowledge of Peru, Bolivia, Chile, Guyana, Argentina and Antarctica.

I'll never forget when…
During a recent familiarisation trip I was lucky enough to stay in the Bolivian Amazon at a fantastic lodge called Chalalan Ecolodge. This is run by a community of 70 indigenous people and offers superb wildlife spotting opportunities.
You access the lodge by a short flight over the Andes from La Paz to the nearest town called Rurrenabque. However, because of flight delays for 2 days (due to bad weather) I was forced to do this trip overland.
It took 15 hours and is usually very scenic, except most of the trip took place during the night when it was foggy, in a car that was unroadworthy.
Travelling for this amount of time around mountains on roads that are barely wide enough for one car, let alone two, is nerve-racking enough. But adding to this the fact that there were 500 ft vertical drops down the mountain side only centimetres away made this quite an unforgettable experience.
