Doug’s travel career started by selling cruises to worldwide destinations before joining Discover the World in 2013 within the Nordic team. Predominately focusing on Iceland, he has experienced the many varying landscapes and spectacular scenery of the country – his favourite part being the Snaefellsnes Peninsula where he enjoyed visiting the volcanic craters, hot springs, rugged coastlines and the opportunity to spot orca.

However, his real passion is wildlife and he moved over to our Worldwide team to focus on the wonderful experiences on offer in Canada and Alaska particularly encounters with bears and whales.

Doug is passionate about this part of North America. His favourite places are the Great Bear Rainforest for the variety of bear species that thrive there and Gros Morne National Park in Newfoundland for the hiking opportunities around Western Brook Pond and Tablelands.
