LAURA GREENMAN - FOUNDER

After an adventurous honeymoon in Sweden and Denmark, Laura was looking for the perfect excuse to uncover the rest of Scandinavia. When she met with two other Scandophiles looking to channel some money and passion into a new venture, Magnetic North Travel was born. Together with the strategic energy of her investors, Laura has grown the business and welcomed thousands of travellers to the Magnetic North.
