A riveting family history…
The story of RASK Travel is as fascinating as our fabulous holiday destinations.
Rasmus Christian Rask was born on the island of Funen, Denmark in 1787. A professor of literary history, he was sent on a worldwide expedition by the Danish King to explore the languages of East. During his journey he rapidly acquired new language skills – including mastering Persian in just six weeks. He went on to become one of the country’s most famous scholars and one of the world’s most renowned philologists.
Headed by travel and tourism aficionado Jonas Rask Eilersen, RASK takes its name from the Danish sociologist’s ancestor. With ten years of travel and management experience under his belt, Jonas has advised hotels, resorts, airports and governments.
