Aurora Expeditions Guide Short-listed in World Guide Awards

Aurora Expeditions are excited to announce that Don McFadizen, one of their accomplished Polar Expedition Leaders, has been short-listed in the 2013 Wanderlust World Guide Awards. Don leads the pack of nine unsung heroes from the world of expert-led travel.

An experienced mountain guide, ski guide, and outdoor pursuits enthusiast, Don’s experience, passion and knowledge of our extreme gI_68106_c Anne_Oyasaeter_PolarBear_Spitsbergen_Courtesy_of_Aurora_Expeditionsdestinations make him an ideal candidate for the top prize. Having worked for Aurora Expeditions for over ten years, Don regularly heads an expedition team in Antarctica and the Arctic on board Polar Pioneer each season.

Nominated solely by those that have travelled with Don on past expeditions, his short-list position was attributed to his “boundless patience, good humour and enthusiasm.” Don makes everyone feel like “they were the most important person on board” and has “excellent knowledge of the wildlife, history and geography of the region.”

Aurora Expeditions are now calling on those that have previously travelled with Don to forward their testimonials to Wanderlust to help Don be named the World Guide of 2013. Testimonials, long or short, can be emailed to topguide(at)wanderlust(dot) (please put the guide’s name in the subject line) or sent via the wanderlust website before 30 May 2013.
