EMPLOYEE ACTIVITIES​

We organize several activities for our employees throughout the year. These are important to strengthen the camaraderie between us as colleagues. In addition to these, we go on a study trip every second year – most recently to the North Cape in 2018. Here are some highlights from the past few years!

COLD REFRESHMENTS

In the summer of 2018, in the middle of our high season, a tasty surprise was waiting outside the office. To celebrate our all-time high that year, the boss served delicious refreshments from an ice cream truck.

ON THE FINISH LINE

Many of our colleagues share a passion for running and take part in various runs at home or abroad. The annual highlight is the DHL Run in Aarhus, where most of our employees participate.

SAILING FROM AARHUS TO PARIS

As a proud sponsor, we were able to go sailing in the port of Aarhus with sailor Frederik Fomsgaard Bruun in September 2019. Frederik takes part in the European Youth competitions in a 49er class and hopes for an Olympic participation in Paris in 2024. Fingers crossed!

KNITTING CLUB

Some of our employees love to knit together - so they often meet after work, have dinner and then pull out the knitting equipment.
You could say they are a tight-knit group!

CAKE, CAKE AND MORE CAKE

We love cake at NORDIC TOURS. So when you have a birthday or the dentist failed in finding any holes, you must buy or bake a cake for your colleagues. Actually, we don’t need much of a reason to have a little cake with our coffee. It’s Danish hygge.

 

WIND IN THE SAILS

Once a year we go to Rømø on one of Denmark’s largest and most beautiful beaches. After an introduction to beach surfing, we venture into the streamlined vehicle and surf the competition. At the end of the day, a winner will be chosen.

PANCAKE DAY

One of our firmly established traditions at NORDIC TOURS is the "Pancake day", originally from Great Britain. To the delight of the entire team, our English colleagues - true to the origin - have embraced this tasty tradition. We love pancakes and look forward to this event every year with great anticipation!

NORDIC PICNIC

Our staff are more than happy to offer themselves as guinea pigs – whether it is new travel destinations, products or concepts that need testing! Over the past few years, we have developed a new, exciting experience – a Nordic picnic – that takes place in our amazing nature. In order to test the product, we have already moved several of our lunch breaks outside and enjoyed a picnic in calming, natural surroundings.

UP FUN CREEK WITH A LOT OF PADEL!

Another activity entered our lives in 2019: padel. A lot of colleagues have thrown their hat in the ring and the competition is fierce!

And more...

Our annual Christmas party, the summer party, our countless info trips (the whole team went to the North Cape in 2018!) And many other activities can be mentioned, the list is long. The owner of NORDIC TOURS takes good care of her employees and supports many of the listed activities both financially and through her participation. Employee care is particularly important to Hanne Mikkelsen: through support, cohesion, respect and recognition, you create a team that can - and would - like to do more than 100%! This attracts the best workforce in the industry.
