Ida, USA Specialist

Ida has always had a fascination with new places and cultures. Her love of the USA was first sparked at a young age when on holiday with her parents. Since then she has extensively explored more of this intriguing country.

Originally from Sweden, Ida moved to the UK to study at university, during which time she had the opportunity to explore the USA further and immerse herself into the American culture as an exchange student. After a stint in finance, Ida decided on a career change to follow her true passion - travel.

Since joining Audley, Ida has re-visited the USA to explore some of its most spectacular national parks, including Yellowstone, Grand Teton, Glacier and Yosemite, as well as her favourite stretch of coastline, the Pacific Coast Highway in California. In her spare time Ida particularly enjoys cooking, much of it inspired from her travels around the globe.

I'll never forget when…

On a recent trip to the USA I had the opportunity to join Teton Science Schools on one of their Wildlife Expedition tours in the striking Grand Teton National Park. We set off early in the morning from Jackson to search for wildlife. It was in the middle of the rutting season for elk and moose and we were fortunate enough to watch two male moose, each with an impressive set of antlers, having a stand-off to compete over a female. It was a very special moment to witness the moose interact and even vocalise, which is rare to hear. All the while this played out, the sun was rising over the jagged peaks of the Grand Teton mountain range, colouring them pink in the early hours and providing the most stunning backdrop to our morning.
