About us

At Scott Dunn, we live and breathe travel. An insatiable appetite to discover the world runs through every member of our team. The brand was first established over three decades ago, born out of a desire to revolutionise ski vacations for the luxury market. Since then, we’ve expanded to cover all seven continents, and continue to offer high-end vacations with an adventurous edge, whether that’s the finest private chalet in the Alps, a remote safari lodge in the Okavango Delta or an expedition cruise in Antarctica. 

Our specialists have traveled to the farthest reaches of the world, exploring everything from the biggest cities to the smallest rural villages, from vast rainforests to tiny desert islands. Our mission is simple – to use the in-depth knowledge that we’ve built up from innumerable journeys round the globe to instil in our guests a love of travel as voracious as our own. Our experts work in small teams that specialize in geographical areas, allowing them to get to know their destinations inside out, from the most authentic experiences to the hottest hotels (and everything in between). And we’re meticulous about detail. We know that it’s often the smallest touches that make the biggest difference, and we’ll stop at nothing to make every trip not only exceptional but totally unique.

We champion diversity in all forms. We are signatories of both the Race at Work Charter and the Diversity in Hospitality, Travel and Leisure Charter, which are part of our continued commitment to promote equality in our workplace and beyond. In recent years, both our CEO Sonia Davies and our Head of Integrated Marketing have been recognised as Women to Watch in Hospitality, Travel and Leisure. With offices in London, California and Singapore, we are a growing global business, but our team is close-knit. It’s our people that set us apart – passionate, honest and absolutely dedicated to our guests. But don’t just take our word for it; we have been voted Condé Nast Traveler’s Top Travel Specialist in the World eight years in a row, and we intend to keep it that way.
