50 years of history within the Haman group AS

Terra Nova Scandinavia is part of the HAMAN GROUP AS. There are 35 employees in the HAMAN GROUP, all spread out in 5 different offices (Oslo, Stockholm, Tromsø, Vaasa and Cologne). It is composed of 5 sister companies: Terra Nova Scandinavia, Haman Scandinavia, Scandinavian Incentives, Authentic Scandinavia and Cities+Tours.
Here is our story:


Foundation of Haman Scandinavia, incoming tour operator based in Stockholm, by Kurt Hahmann. He was one of the first persons offering packaged tours for bus companies to Scandinavia and especially to the North Cape. Haman Scandinavia was also one of the first travel organizers to use computers.


Foundation of the incoming tour operator Euro Terra Nova with base in Oslo in Norway.


Incoming tour operator based in Fagernes in Norway. ETON Travel was the first offering charter flights from France directly to that little airport of Fagernes.


Kurt Hahmann retires and decides to sell Haman Scandinavia to Norwegian Per Omar Johanson. The latter/He created the International Travel Group (ITG) that subsequently bought Euro Terra Nova and ETON Travel who were united in one single office in Oslo operating under the name Euro Terra Nova. It’s in December 1999 that Franck Vogt joins the Euro Terra Nova team as sales manager. At the same time Anette Karlsson joins Haman Scandinavia in Stockholm as general manager. Haman Scandinavia and Euro Terra Nova, both still being part of ITG, are managed by Ivar Villa and Paul Anders Ramm.


Anette Karlsson buys Haman Scandinavia and Euro Terra Nova from ITG. She then creates HAMAN GROUP composed of Euro Terra Nova becoming TERRA NOVA SCANDINAVIA, incoming tour operator and specialist for Scandinavia with base in Oslo in Norway, and of HAMAN SCANDINAVIA with base in Stockholm in Sweden.


Today HAMAN GROUP has grown and matured and has become one of the leaders in tourism within Scandinavia. HAMAN GROUP counts approximately 35 employees in five different offices (Oslo, Stockholm, Tromsø, Vaasa and Cologne) working for the five companies: TERRA NOVA SCANDINAVIA, HAMAN SCANDINAVIA, SCANDINAVIAN INCENTIVES, AUTHENTIC SCANDINAVIA and CITIES+TOURS.
