Trans Nordic Tours, launched in 1995, is based in Copenhagen and so far successfully led by founders Yvonne and Pierre d'Hermilly. The company specialises in incoming group tours to the Nordic countries with clients and staff from all over the world and partners in more than 50 countries.

Trans Nordic Tours accordingly provides in-market services for consumers travelling to popular destinations throughout Scandinavia, Iceland, Greenland, Finland, the Baltics and Russia.

Though located in Copenhagen, the company works closely with the other Nordic countries and business partners, and members of the staff constantly travel to all the current offered destinations as well as to new potential destinations. This always updated knowledge ensures the ability to at all times design and suggest the right tour for the individual customers in an ever-changing environment.

Many years in the market have led to a strong partnership with the region’s top service providers, and the company works side by side with the best hotels, restaurants, bus companies, tour leaders and guides, meeting venues and more. The net result of these close partnerships is competitive prices, high quality and excellent service.

Since inception, the company has grown to 41 staff who speak 17 different languages and provide services to a fast-growing and geographically diverse client base.

Trans Nordic Tours is the largest local inbound tour operator to the Nordic countries by revenue and has over the recent five years experienced solid growth.

Tour Partner Group has recently acquired Trans Nordic Tours, building on its position as a leading European destination management company with combined revenues over EUR 100m.

Tour Partner Group is the holding company for Hotels & More, Irish Welcome Tours and Authentic Vacations.

Hotels & More is a professional B2B partner for group tours and foreign independent tours to the United Kingdom and Ireland.

Since its foundation in 1996 in Harrow, it has established itself as one of the leading inbound tour operators. In 2015, Hotels & More was backed by Mayfair Equity Partners, a UK based buyout and growth capital investor.

Irish Welcome Tours is one of Ireland's leading inbound tour operators and destination management companies. It has been based in Dublin for over 27 years and boasts a team of 65 multilingual staff.

Authentic Vacations is based in California with 20 staff offering self-drive and chauffeur-driven tours to Ireland and the UK from the B2C market in North America.

The acquisition marks the first strategic initiative under recently appointed Tour Partner Group CEO Paul Maine, and the Group's entrance into the Nordic market. Trans Nordic Tours will also add new source markets to Tour Partner Group's portfolio, capturing increasing demand from Asia, Australia, the Middle East and South America.

This new acquisition follows the recent transaction with Irish Welcome Tours and Authentic Ireland, a high growth online US travel agent which strengthened Tour Partner Group's market-leading position in the UK and Ireland.

This activity represents the next phase in Tour Partner Group's growth, building on its success since Mayfair Equity Partners backed the buyout of Hotels & More in 2015.

Tour Partner Group now consists of over 150 destination experts, providing services across 14 North European countries to clients from more than 50 countries; including operating groups, foreign independent tour providers and the meeting and event industry.
