Who Are We?

Travel Advisors who want you to 
become Informed Explorers

At Alpine Lakes Travel, we are more than just a travel advisor – we are architects and designers of unforgettable experiences. We believe in the transformative power of travel, the kind that broadens horizons, deepens understanding, and helps you to fulfill dreams you thought were unattainable.


We are committed to exceeding the expectations of every traveler who entrusts us with their journey. From meticulous planning to seamless execution, we go above and beyond to create memories that last a lifetime.


Our success is measured not just by the trips we plan, but by the relationships we build. We want to create solid memories which last and continued opportunities to build where the last trip left off, rather than restarting the planning process from scratch each time. We want you to feel like you have become a part of our extended family.


We don’t just sell travel – we inspire and educate. We strive to create “Informed Explorers”, arming clients and travelers with the knowledge, tools and beneficial preparation to navigate the world with curiosity and confidence and to be able to appreciate the wonders they will discover along the way.


Join us on a journey where each trip may result in a chapter written in your larger narrative of global discovery and growth. Let us be a guide, a confidante, and a companion, as you explore the wonders of the world.

At Alpine Lakes Travel, we don’t just plan trips – we create experiences that enrich lives.

My love of travel began over 30 years ago during a semester abroad in Vienna, Austria. Since then I have traveled multiple times to Europe and feel like it is my second home.  I love to experience the culture, food, history and beautiful scenery. Each time I return home I’m counting the days until my next trip! I’m looking forward to exploring more of this amazing world.
