For Luxurious Adventure Journeys

Personalized Concierge Planning Services

As an insatiably curious traveler, you long for a journey that will change your perspective. A journey that will bring you way closer to the world’s greatest natural and cultural wonders, sparking your curiosity in inspiring ways.

Of course, planning a journey that transforms takes time—and an insider perspective—to do right. And when you’re already hustling hard at home and work, you simply don’t have the hours to pour into intensive research, complicated logistical planning, or figuring out which travel resources you can truly trust.

That’s where True North Travel Co. comes in. We let you dream BIG—and then we take care of all the details. We take your vision and create the best authentic travel experience on your behalf.  Think of us as your intrepid (and well-connected) travel scout, carving out your shortcut to a spectacular adventure.

Kind Words

from Clients

"I have used Mallory and True North Travel a few times now and I HIGHLY recommend. I had to change my flight a few times and Mallory was so good about it. The app that we used on our phones was extremely slick — I was so impressed. Her customer service, attention to detail and professionalism is second to none."

- D. Vander Schaaf

"Mallory was fantastic to work with. She helped plan our Hawaii vacation and had the best information to share with us. We were so happy with everything. I would absolutely have her book our vacation again. So thankful for such an easy experience as well."

- The Wasrud Family 


"Mallory is now our travel agent and for members of our family as well. Her extensive knowledge, expertise and willingness to help makes travel so much easier. We recommend her to anyone who travels.."

- The Tilton Family 

"We have become dependent on Mallory's knowledge and access to travel resources. When we are looking to take a trip, we provide some information and our budget, and Mallory does the rest, offering professional (and 'insider' tips and information), collaborating with us to create a great travel experience. She is responsive in her communications and highly attentive to our needs. We have been consistently satisfied and impressed with our travel experiences when working with True North Travel ."

- Mark & Suzanne

"Mallory was recommended to us by a family friend and she was exceptional. She is detail oriented, professional, honest and very communicative. We were nervous about booking another trip during the pandemic but she has put our minds at ease by taking care of all the details and providing us with all the necessary information and precautions. We will never book our own travel again!"

- The Sellman Family

"I've been a client of Mallory Ryan's for four years now. She's assisted me in the planning of numerous trips to a variety of destinations, and most recently, an Alaskan cruise (which she had to book, cancel and rebook for me because of the pandemic). Mallory has been such a pleasure to work with as she's confident, friendly and professional.  She goes above and beyond to make sure that every part of our trip is seamless, whether it's transportation, hotel accommodations or the events we attend while on vacation. To say I value her knowledge and expertise is an understatement. I look forward to doing business with her well into the future.” 

- Rebecca K.

"Very thankful we had Mallory to help us. She has helped us with two trips now. This last trip was a bit stressful getting all the documents and necessary requirements fulfilled. Mallory made sure we had it all together and had a Plan A, B … and C for our tests and travel in case things changed last minute.  Mallory was a referral to us a couple years ago and she is amazing to work with. If you are looking for a very knowledgeable travel agent for domestic or international travel, please contact her."

- Yvette & Nick

FAQ

Why use a travel advisor? 

VALUE- True North Travel has access to the same, if not better pricing than available online, and we can secure exclusive VIP benefits, amenities, access, and extras. Our clients rely on us to make travel planning more efficient and enjoyable, to save them time and money, and to lend expertise which makes a world of difference. We work on your behalf before, during, and after every trip. If there is a hiccup; we are there to resolve the problem, so our clients can relax and enjoy their time. We work for our clients – not the travel supplier, so our main concern is always the traveler’s needs. 

TIME- Our travel partners are true experts in planning and curating the very best travel experiences, and we can create a wonderful itinerary for you in a time-efficient way. We are experts in organizing complex trips involving large groups, multiple destinations while using several suppliers and outfitters. If you enjoy doing the research and planning-great! Our clients decide the level of their involvement for each trip. If you prefer having us handle all the details, we can do that, too.

PEACE OF MIND- We are your trusted partners in planning and booking memorable and tailored travel experiences. We get to know our client’s preferences and the best options for their desired travel experiences. This eliminates risk and results in exceptional experiences each and every time.



 

It’s expensive to use a travel advisor? 

 For many clients, paying a small fee to know that their entire trip has been customized and vetted – and knowing they’ve got someone who will be on call before, during, and after their trip – is well worth it. Fees aside, a travel advisor is still going to save you money (and will definitely save you time). 


What services do you provide? 

 At True North Travel, we will manage as much or as little of your trip as you would like. We can handle all aspects including transfers from your home to the airport, luggage services, flights, hotels, all activities, restaurant reservations, rental cars or private drivers, private aviation, yacht charters- you name it, we can deliver it. If you are looking for someone to help with only one or two details of your trip, we are happy to assist with anything you may need. 


What is Sustainable tourism? 

True North Travel is an active member of Virtuoso’s Sustainability Community, with a focus on creating a positive impact through celebrating cultures, supporting local economies, and protecting the planet.
