Tracy Larson, Founder
I started True North Travel Design because of you, the traveler. Before I started True North, friends and family were seeking my advice and expertise on travel. Despite all of the online resources available to them, they were suffering from information overload. What they were looking for was honest, reliable, and knowledgeable guidance on planning their travel. And so began True North Travel Design.
I have nearly 20 years of travel and hospitality experience. I spent most of my adult life traveling around the world to expand my worldview and experience the world first hand. I am a Certified Accessible Travel Advocate and hold Master’s level degrees in Conflict Transformation and in Urban Education with a license in 5-12 high school social studies in the state of Minnesota.
My favorite destinations are the Italian Riviera, Bavaria, Rwanda and the North Shore of Minnesota. Follow me on @instagramto see where the road less traveled brings me. Check out the map below to see where in the world it took me and my clients.
