As a personal tour operator with many years’ experience in the activity holidays industry, we thrive on creating fantastic experiences by offering adventures that are off the beaten track, that bring together like-minded people, and that give you a true sense of personal achievement.
Our destinations are primarily in Norway and Italy, but we are gradually expanding into other countries. In recent years, we have organised trips to Croatia, Switzerland, Japan, France, Andorra, Canada, Portugal, the Pyrenees, the Netherlands, Spain, Scotland, Austria, Korea and Albania. These trips have included a range of activity holidays, cycling tours, Vespa tours, walking holidays, food and wine holidays, skiing trips, school trips and holidays for seniors.
We arrange a variety of holidays for corporate clients and private groups. Share your ideas with us, we welcome a challenge!
Every individual and each organisation is driven by their values. Our underlying values determine our choices, form our attitudes and thoughts, and shape our communication and actions. This is why we are happy to share our own values and be clear about what is important to us. It says a lot about our goals and what we want to deliver, but most of all, it tells you who we are.
It’s important that we have a strong commitment and personal interest in what we do. That doesn’t mean that we always say YES to everything, but we are selective about what and who we want to work with.
We believe that the best experiences are local experiences. No matter where we are in the world, we like to explore the local environment and make use of local expertise, whether it’s knowledge about the local area or local cuisine. We also like to have a personal interest in the activities on offer, and to be our most authentic selves.
Few things in life give us more energy than when we are having fun and enjoying ourselves. It is important, and it often creates synergies between the individual and the organisation.
From experience, we know that it is always better to keep things simple and honest. If we can all be easygoing and free to be ourselves, everyone enjoys themselves much more.
We grow and make progress when we learn to use the resources we ALL have as human beings. Our greatest experiences most often come from interacting with other people. If we can dare to go outside our comfort zone and dare to fail sometimes, it’s the best way to learn and develop our knowledge and experience.
In every part of our organisation, we try to think sustainable regarding the environment and the local community. Together with our suppliers, partners and participants, we want to make as positive a contribution as possible. Actively contributing to our surroundings in a positive way is important to us. We believe that it also creates a profitable business both environmentally and economically in the short and long term.
From the outset in 2004, we have been clear about what we stand for. Our vision has grown stronger and clearer every year. There is no doubt that our strongest driving force is the chance to make a positive difference in the lives of the people who come on our tours and those we meet along the way.
Our vision is simple and clear:
Our vision is our greatest and most important answer to the question ‘why Expa Travel?’
We have also developed our own concept, Camp Norway, where we organise supporter trips at home and abroad. E.g. to the Olympics, World Cup…etc. We also offer presentations and workshops on service and personal development. These can be arranged as part of the tour or as a separate event within your company.
