Travel operator and Nordic specialist 50 Degrees North has just strengthened its expertise by employing Swedish born Esbjörn Torstensson, as its General Manager.
Esbjörn grew up in a small house next to a big forest and has fond memories of long warm summer nights and snowy winters. His family hails from all over Sweden and he knows his home country, and the region, well.
Migrating to Australia in 1998, Esbjörn spent 4 years with STA Travel in Australia and Scotland and eventually sought out adventure travel at Intrepid Travel, where he worked behind the scenes with travel agents, travellers, leaders and other operators. He has most recently been managing Intrepid’s first ever concept store in Melbourne, Australia and working in the Computer sales industry.
Esbjörn will predominantly be working alongside 50 Degrees North’s director, Tietse Stelma tailor-making itineraries to Sweden and other 50 Degrees North regions.
