Meet Natalie Crow
Managing Director, Global Sales
Natalie believes in travel as a force for good. With over a decade in the travel industry, she has seen travel offer a different perspective and inform understanding through human connection. “We realize we are all human, we all share certain values, and we all share this planet,” she notes.
She describes trip planning as “fun, not work” and her boundless enthusiasm will fill even the most reticent traveler with excitement and anticipation for their next journey. She says, “there’s nothing better than getting out a map and really listening to my clients to truly understand what they are looking to experience.” Natalie is skilled at orchestrating everything from multi-generational family trips that cater to many interests and abilities to revealing the Buddhist way of life in Bhutan on an intimate cultural journey.
Passionate about hiking and the natural world, she is particularly adept at planning active adventures, including trekking or camping in the Himalaya and meeting with conservationists onsite in Costa Rica, where the only access is by zip line! She also loves designing complex road trips through Patagonia, African safaris, and wildlife-focused journeys in the Galápagos Islands and Costa Rica.
Her own travels span nearly every continent. Some of her most treasured experiences have been trekking to see chimpanzees in Tanzania, star gazing in Wadi Rum, swimming with whale sharks in Mexico, releasing baby turtles in Costa Rica, and praying with monks in Bhutan. Always up for a hiking opportunity, she has trekked through the Andes in Peru, scouted new national parks in Patagonia, hit the trails in Iceland and Nepal, and most recently spent a few days exploring the Jordan Trail with local Bedouins.
In her spare time, she continues to develop her knowledge of destinations and details, having volunteered for conservation projects in Chile and worked on organic farms in Costa Rica. She recently completed her Level 3 Award in the Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET III), allowing her to evaluate international wines and guide clients to interesting vintages during their travels.
