Travel + Leisure A List Travel Agent Dan Austin

Dan Austin

T+L TOP TRAVEL ADVISOR | U.S. NATIONAL PARKS SPECIALIST

He’s planned getaways to all seven continents, but his strong suit remains his own backyard. Montana-based Austin is a logistics ace who knows all the ins and outs of park lodges and pairs travelers with the perfect guides for trips to places like Grand Teton and Glacier national parks. Because of his vast expertise, travelers frequently seek out his help when planning trips that involve visiting three or more national parks in one go. “We’re able to accommodate these types of requests due to our unique knowledge and first-hand experience,” he says. His clients seek out exclusive adventures — like private riverside cookouts hosted by professional chefs and guided hikes on off-the-beaten-path trails. And they’re willing to splurge on high-end accommodations, like Sheldon Chalet in Alaska and the Chilko Experience Wilderness Resort in British Columbia. In recent years, Austin has observed an uptick in requests for travel to the East Coast of the United States as well as an enduring interest in multigenerational and skip-generational travel.
