Mark McFaul

Mark is one of the newest members of the Marketing team here at The Aurora Zone. Originally from Somerset in the South West of England, Mark moved to the North East to study at Newcastle University and has been here ever since.


Despite having been able to travel quite extensively throughout his life, Mark has yet to experience a winter holiday and since joining The Aurora Zone his desire to experience the beauty of a trip to the Arctic has only increased, with Finland, Sweden and Canada three countries he is particularly keen to visit.

Having spent a considerable amount of his time looking at amazing photos of the Northern Lights, Mark is especially keen to have the chance to witness the Auroras first hand, with a trip to see the Northern Lights top of his bucket list right now.

In addition to experiencing the wonders of the Northern Lights for the first time, Mark is also hoping to experience a husky safari, with the opportunity to control a team of dogs and navigate the spectacular winter wilderness something that he would love to do with our trips to Lake Inari and Nangu high on his list of destinations to visit.

The Aurora Zone was born out of our love of all things wintery. We were already regular visitors to the likes of Norway, Finland, Sweden and Iceland thanks to a fascination with winter activities such as dog sledding, snowmobiling and the Scandinavian way of life. Many of our visits coincided with sightings of the Northern Lights and The Aurora Zone was born from a desire to share Mother Nature’s greatest wonder with as many people as possible. We have all been held in the Aurora’s thrall and our mission is to do our very best to ensure that our clients can experience that magical moment on their Northern Lights holiday.
