Rita’s story:
I have always been closely related to the travel business, being the daughter of the first Norwegian cruise director (Harald de Lange), taking American tourists on fjord cruises on board the tiny Norwegian cruise ship “MS Meteor” in the 1960’s. This way I cruised the beautiful fjords and met foreign tourists as a child. As a student I chose psychology, but I always had my summer job in the tourist office in Bergen, thus keeping the travel business close to my heart.

Eventually I found working as a psychologist was not the best way for me, and I had a strong motivation towards entrepreneurship. I got the idea of setting up travel packages to the fjords, to make it easier for foreign tourists to really experience the fjords and spend some time there. This was the first Norwegian company selling independent travel packages directly to the customers.

So I set up the business! In 2000 the internet was in its early childhood. My brother was helpful and made our first web site, and I soon realized this was the ideal place to be for a travel company like this, although nobody believed me!
Looking back, we know the answer!
