Patrick Griffin

Biography

Patrick has a wealth of experience to draw from, including a year spent travelling across America from San Francisco to New York, exploring everything from iconic cities to lesser-known gems like Oregon's spectacular Crater Lake National Park. He's equally passionate about Canada's east coast, citing both Québec's charming old town and the village of Tadoussac - a base for hiking, kayaking and whale-watching at the mouth of the Saguenay Fjord - as two of his favourite haunts. In South America, Patrick has travelled to Ecuador, Peru, Chile and Bolivia. He is just as comfortable discussing his highlights of Latin America - such as island-hopping across Lake Titicaca and swimming with sea lions in Ecuador's Galapagos - as he is comparing Caribbean hotels, yet another subject in which he's well versed.
