Scott Jones arrived to Chile via Maine, Finland and Alabama. Born in New Zealand, he grew up in rural Maine, attending Middlebury College (B.A) and the associated Centre for Northern Studies in Vermont. From here he ended up lecturing on small expedition cruise ship in the Arctic, and finally getting a M.Sc. (Geography, focusing on Polar Tourism) from Oulu University in Finland. Putting this practical, work and academic background to work for a US company based in Alabama, Scott helped develop a cruise in the fjords of Chilean Patagonia and the Straights of Magellan. He was hooked on the diversity and beauty of Chile. Moving to Chile became inevitable. Soon he had the opportunity to manage the North American market for Chile’s largest tourism company; a great opportunity for learning the ins and outs of Chile, its attractions, culture and tourism industry. In Nov 2004, he started his own small company with an experienced Chilean business partner. Since then he has focused on providing the most In-Depth tour of Chile available, along with custom trips for individuals and special interest groups and enjoying living in a lovely place!
