RecommendationsTake a look at what our clients have to say.
When we founded Adventure Travel Norway we asked Neil to help us create Norway’s leading inbound tour operator with a focus on delivering world class experiences and services for high net worth and ultra high net worth individuals.
Neil’s insider knowledge and wealth of experience in luxury adventure travel allowed us to move forward rapidly with a focused strategy for experiential design, brand development and the establishment of operational procedures.
His on-going business development support and mentoring has been invaluable and has allowed us to rapidly establish partnerships with leading tour operators and travel planners.
We look forward to collaborating with Neil for years to come.
Didrick Ose & Petter Thorsen – ATN.
We have worked well together both independently and in team efforts. Whether in product development, sustainable practices, hotel management or marketing he is the most knowledgeable person I have met in Sweden.
He is an outstanding analyst and project planner when asked to develop a tourism destination. His global experience and high quality travel trade contacts make it possible to use him for the whole process of creating a functioning tourism destination.
In assessing tourism attractions, forming tourism development plans, making and implementing marketing plans. Although he is an International expert I also find him excellent in understanding how to develop the domestic market for ecotourism.
Despite being Britain’s best-known specialist wildlife tour operator, and having sent large numbers of tourists to countries all over the world for 24 years, Sweden had never featured in our range of destinations until 2008.
It was then that we came across Neil Rogers, an Englishman living in Sweden with an infectious passion for Scandinavia, its wildlife and its magnificent wilderness regions.
Neil’s enthusiasm, knowledge of Sweden and Norway, and huge experience in understanding the international tourism market, have single-handedly transformed our business to Scandinavia.
He has brought us a great range of invaluable local contacts through whom, with Neil’s guidance, Naturetrek has been able to develop a large and ever-expanding range of wonderful tours and destinations in Sweden and Norway.
We are indebted to Neil for his drive and expertise in the area of Scandinavian tourism. He is an enormous asset and source of guidance to anyone in the tourism, travel and hospitality sector. Don’t work without him!
Meagan let me know that you have been extremely helpful with our Norway trip. From your local knowledge and insight to assisting us with getting more rooms to sell. Thank you so much for being a great resource. We are excited for our Norway trips.
Best regards, Tania Burke, President Trek Travel.Tania Burke
NCE Tourism Fjord Norway has cycling as one of our three main areas of adventure tourism. Our objective is to turn the western part of Norway into Scandinavia’s leading cycling and adventure region.
Neil has been helping us with one-to-one consulting for our cycle tourism entrepreneurs as well as comparing our products with the needs of overseas tour operators. He has experienced our products (routes), and given us valuable feedback on how to develop, package, price and promote guided and self-guided programmes to targeted overseas tour operators.
He has singled out the most interesting overseas tour operators seen from our point of view and, on behalf of us, made contact with these tour operators to determine their interest in our products. This has already (in one year only) resulted new business to the region.
We want to continue to work with Neil, and are so happy he also is interested in a cooperation.Synnøve Aabrekk
Even though Norway is gifted with stunning landscapes and amazing wildlife we’re still lacking the knowledge in how to develop our destination in order to take advantage of adventure and nature based tourism from overseas markets. In order to make our outdoor suppliers a success and to ensure the Trøndelag region is visible on the adventure travel map we must take a big step forward. Product development, business and destination development and strategies, marketing and sales – it all has to fit together.
Neil Rogers is one of most experienced in the business and he isn’t only an expert on small segments of this chain, he can deliver on every part of it – and if he can`t he`ll tell you and at the same time offer alternatives solutions.
A key factor in Neil’s case is that although his services are in demand he always responds to e-mails quickly and efficiently. It is a pleasure to work with a person so effective, personable, clear minded, clear talking, humble and straight forward.Petter Thorsen
