Fiona Jackson

Assistant Guide (Road Cycling Holidays)

Born in Scotland and spending holidays being made to walk up many a Scottish mountain developed my love and passion for the great outdoors, even if I might not have appreciated it at the time!

Coupled with a desire to travel and live abroad I chose my degree on the basis that I could live and study in Italy for 4 years. This merely cultivated my passion to travel and whilst cycling around Cuba I discovered that travelling by bike was the best way to see a country. After a couple of years living and working in London, my travel itch got the better of me and I found myself in the jungles of Belize with a youth development charity. I had taken my bike so I could explore the country and decided to cycle across the border and ended up cycling across Guatemala and into Mexico.

My love for travel had been ignited. I went to Ecuador to learn Spanish and from there to Chile where I spent a year living in Patagonia and working in the Torres del Paine National Park.

Returning to the UK I knew I wanted to work in travel so spent a year running gastronomic walking tours in Tuscany before joining an adventure travel company for whom I have led biking and hiking trips all around the world for the past 20 years.

I look forward to sharing my passion with like-minded people and exploring new places.
