Georgina Hancock's Top Travel Experiences

  • Mushing my own team of huskies through the magical winter wilderness of Lapland
  • Experiencing my best nights sleep ever at the Icehotel - and no I wasn't at all cold!
  • Gazing in wonder at many a sky filled with the most magnificent northern lights displays in Norway, Finland, Sweden and Iceland
  • Enjoying the wonderful food and wines that the Hawkes Bay region in New Zealand has to offer
  • Driving through the most unique and spectacular scenery I have ever seen in Iceland, where around every corner there is a view to take your breath away and barely anyone else in sight
  • Sampling the Icehotel's sublime 12-course Chef's Table - pure drama and utterly brilliant.

My Favourite Place

The Chef’s Table is utterly mesmerising. I was wowed by the chefs as they brought each course alive by explaining the concept, choice of ingredients and local provenance. The presentation was breathtaking, the food exquisite and the atmosphere and drama made for a truly memorable evening.
