Ali McLean

I love winter and I love snow and I love adventure and The White Circle is very much a reflection of my particular passions. Quite simply, I live for heading to the wilds of Lapland, whether it is the mountains of Sweden, the fjords of Norway or the lakes and forests of Finland. They all have their own very distinct character but under a covering of deep snow they are all typified by stunning scenery that is just begging to be explored.

And that’s what we do. Imagine dog sledding through the snow laden Finnish forest or racing across a frozen fjord in Arctic Norway, these countries offer exhilarating experiences that just don’t happen here during the wet UK winters.

The Arctic is my escape and my overwhelming passion so setting up a travel company specialising in the area was a pretty smart move I guess but it has also yielded an unexpected bonus in the people I've met. In establishing The White Circle I've come to know and love the people of Scandinavia.

Basically, I've been incredibly fortunate in my choice of career because I've experienced so much and met so many fabulous people. And, essentially, that is the foundations on which The White Circle is based.
