We have lots of experience of providing passenger services, and we have always believed in making our customers happy, creating good experiences and looking after the needs of the people who travel with us.
People dream about exploring the world, and tourism is one of the world’s fastest-growing industries. We are in an ideal position to participate in that growth, thanks to our extensive experience in the tourism industry and the knowledge we have built up over the years about what people expect when travelling. Each day, all year round, we do our best to fulfil those expectations. We aim to meet the needs of everyone who travels with us – whether by water or on land, whether by boat or bus – and make sure they have a good experience.
Now we hope to get more involved in providing organised tours. In order to become involved in the tourism industry of the future, in 2020 we acquired an ownership interest in XXLofoten, a Svolvær-based provider of activities and experiences. The company offers a variety of packages and trips for people travelling alone or in groups, and uses advanced technology to tailor experiences to people’s needs.
