A FAMILY HISTORY
Rasmus Christian Rask was born on the island of Funen, Denmark, in 1787. A professor of literary history, he was sent on a round-the-world expedition to learn and understand the languages of the East. After mastering these and exploring the most far-flung destinations, he went on to become one of Denmark’s most famous scholars and a world-renowned philologist. 200 years later, Jonas Rask Eilersen followed in his ancestor’s footsteps and established RASK Travel, your gateway to the world.
