Japan Operations

Louisa Virgato

Louisa is our Operations specialist for Japan. She has worked in the travel industry for the past 20 years, mostly in the adventure travel space. Her experience has predominantly been in group operations, itinerary design and product development.

From a young age, Louisa was drawn to travel. Her first travel experience was at 6 months old when her Dad took her on a camping trip to beautiful Wilson’s Promontory in Victoria, where she must have caught the travel bug. Since then she has travelled extensively across the globe.

Louisa’s most memorable travel experiences have included an expeditionary cruise to the Scandinavian Arctic, a gorilla trek in Rwanda, trekking the Annapurna Dhaulagiri in Nepal, walking the Lares Trail in Peru and cycling through the magnificent Loire Valley of France.

A few years ago, Louisa took off on a 4-month sojourn to Latin American travelling overland through the vast land diverse landscapes of Peru, Bolivia, Chile and Argentina.

What Louisa loves most about travel is stepping outside of her day-to-day existence to observe and engage with people from other cultures. She also has a keen interest in wildlife and loves the excitement of safari style holidays.

Louisa looks forward to one day walking the entire Camino Francés with her family once her little boy is old enough. Until then she continues to enjoy short breaks to rural areas of Victoria on family camping holidays where she can feel connected to nature.
