Svet Monastyrsky

Svet’s passion for travel developed at a young age via her interest in history, culture, and learning foreign languages. From her first trip to Europe with her parents aged 12 to living abroad in Germany as a university student, she has continued to travel internationally whenever given the chance. Svet loves honing her language skills and picking up the basics in each new destination and is driven by the potential of whatever tasty food is waiting around the corner, often letting the search for a specific dish guide her daily itinerary. Svet is both a nature and a city lover, thriving off spotting sloths and birdlife in the breathtaking Peruvian Amazon or hiking a granite dome in Yosemite National Park just as much as discovering small jazz bars and vintage clothing stores in the lively neighbourhoods of Tokyo.

It didn’t take Svet long in her PR career to gravitate towards the travel industry, and she has been lucky enough to work in the destination PR space for more than eight years, promoting destinations such as New South Wales, the USA, Peru, Los Cabos, and Germany with experience spanning PR and media relations targeted to driving awareness and visitation within both domestic and international markets.

Svet is proud to join a company that has curiosity, adventure and a respect for the environment at its core and looks forward to working with global media partners to help tell the story of the transformational experiences that Aurora Expeditions offers its guests.
