Norway in a Nutshell in Style, "The Nordic Company's Version"

A Taste of the Fjords

Alisha Arnold
Senior Travel Specialist

Eager to share my expertise with you…
I joined The Nordic Company in 2003 and have never looked back since being introduced to the exciting world of travel. The greatest aspect of my job is always the opportunity to share this refreshing and spectacular part of the world with our curious clientele. I particularly enjoy the amazement they express when they realize Scandinavia really does have something to offer for everyone – regardless of age, ability, or interest!

In order to provide you with the most comprehensive knowledge of this cherished region, my fellow staff specialists and I travel to Scandinavia frequently. Here, we wander the streets in search of that perfect little shop for your most memorable souvenir, that fancy restaurant that makes every night unforgettable, and that comfortable hotel with a view that forever begs your return. We are careful to review all of our outstanding, preferred hotels and to walk in the footsteps of our many popular itineraries in order to ensure the utmost quality of your visit. The more we learn, the more we can pass on to you during our friendly and informative trip-planning process.

This past year, we were able to experience Scandinavia in all of its holiday glitter and glory when we visited in December. Traveling during the holiday season introduced us to a whole new level of Scandinavian warmth and hospitality that surpassed all of our expectations.

My colleagues and I pride ourselves on accommodating every travel request, from the common to the carefully coordinated and everything in between. We calm your fears, create your journey, and carry it through – the only thing we can’t do is feed your cat while you’re away!

Dear Alisha:  We had a great time. For lack of our own experience, we would have planned the trip a bit differently, but you know how good hindsight is! The Scandinavian people are happy, helpful, and friendly. The beauty of the country was beyond our expectations. We had wonderful food.

We thank you for all of your planning. We stayed on schedule, saw tons of sights and are still amazed! We have filed our itinerary and related info in hopes that our children will take this trip sooner than we did. Thanks, again.

Let me help you craft your journey…
I’ve been with The Nordic Company since 2003, when I sought a career with a company where I could continue to learn and explore while helping others do the same. At The Nordic Company, I get to share my excitement for Scandinavia every day! Our customers are special because they want to see the part of the world that we, at The Nordic Company, love and know so well.

Jerry, the owner, understands that our expertise is what helps us make your trip a success. Every year, each of us has the opportunity to travel to one of our destinations to learn more about what’s new. From food and fashion to events and new hotels, our job is to know what you need to know.

We also get to feed our own passions; mine is the outdoors. With an individually customized itinerary, I’ve kayaked the fjords of Norway, hiked one of the oldest glaciers in Europe and “tölted” through the lava fields astride an Icelandic horse in Iceland.

My colleagues and I promise to immerse ourselves in the countries and cities we represent and share our experiences with you. Your special request becomes our special quest. From the everyday to the extraordinary, we’ll build a trip for you with highlights and insights of Scandinavia that only The Nordic Company can share.

Dear Ellen:  Our trip was very well planned and fulfilled all of our expectations of a most memorable Norwegian Odyssey. The Nordic Company took care of all of our requests flawlessly. They made traveling to Norway an absolutely fantastic journey. We plan to use them again in the future for all of our Scandinavian travel.
