Natalie Wilson

Natalie Wilson is a walking encyclopedia of the topics of northern England, from its rich literary legacy to all things sheep. She has been leading treks around the world since 2009, from Mongolia and Bolivia to long-distance walks in the U.K. An avid bird watcher, Natalie typically hikes with binoculars and field guides, and prides herself on identifying the calls of local winged wonders. A songbird herself, she is known to break out into song on the trail—whether a tune from the Industrial Revolution or sea shanty.
