    CHIEF RESIDENTS

    @SCANDIPLANET

    East meets West.

     

    Country Boy meets City Girl.

     

    Roger and Suriati bring the best of their uniquely different backgrounds into the tours under Scandiplanet.

    Roger Bamrud

    Chief ACTION Officer

    Born and raised in Feiring, Norway, Roger brings the spunk of adventure and a laid- back vibe to Scandiplanet’s product offerings. It is no surprise that the forest is Roger’s first love. As a young boy, he would spend many days and nights hanging out in the forest, mostly fishing or simply soaking in the tranquility of the forest. As a certified hunter of more than 20 years, Roger has much to share on his knowledge of the forest and its inhabitants. Roger is also passionate about world history. A typical conversation with Roger might just involve old stories of his hometown, Feiring and Norway too.

    Suriati Supani Bamrud

    Chief INSPIRATION Officer

    Coming from Singapore city, Suriati understands the needs and concerns that city people may have in experiencing nature tours. While Suriati has lived in Norway since 2009, she designs Scandiplanet’s

    packages with foreigners in mind. Suriati has first-hand experience of various Norwegian cultures and traditions. She is conversant in the Norwegian language and this has helped her to embrace the locals' unique way of life. In putting her Norwegian skills to the test, Suriati took the lead role in a Norwegian play in 2015. Her performance was well-received and she continues to challenge herself and push boundaries in her business and personal life.

  • Scandiplanet Story

    Mr Hedgehog, our inspiration

    On the 10th of May 2013, we had a special visitor on our lawn at our home in Feiring.

    It was a hedgehog!

     

    The closest I had been to a hedgehog was on Discovery Channel, on TV. As I was super excited about my first encounter with a hedgehog, I posted a picture of the cute visitor on Facebook.

     

    In response to the post, I was surprised to find 42 LIKES, within less than a day! Many of the responses came from friends in Singapore. Apart from the hedgehog post, my pictures of Norway on Facebook had always been VERY well-received. My friends in Asia often marveled and raved about how beautiful and exciting Norway is.

     

    Roger and I had often talked about starting a travel company but l must say that Mr Hedgehog gave us the impetus to kick it off. The incident and the constant overwhelming interest in Norway by friends in Asia led us to take stock. We soon realised that we have something special to offer, even out of Feiring, where we live. In Dec 2013. Scandiplanet was made official! As a tribute to Mr Hedgehog for giving the inspiration, his image is captured in the company logo.
