Oy Kon-Tiki Tours Ltd is a privately owned tour operator and travel agency in Finland. We do tailor made tours for groups on request. For individual clients we offer themed tours and market them in co-operation with selected magazines and media. Kon-Tiki Tours operates in whole Finland.

In November 2016 Kon-Tiki Tours acquired another Finnish tour operator Trio Travels Oy. The acquisition supports Kon-Tiki´s growth ambitions and gives it a stronger market position in travel field, among the mid-size tour operators. By merging these two companies Kon-Tiki Tours will be able to offer an even wider selection of products for different client segments. After the acquisition the turn-over of the company will raise up to nearly 5 m€.

Kon-Tiki and Trio Travels share similar values and a strong sense of responsibility as a tour operator. Kon-Tiki Tours operates under three brands according to the clientele. Since 1995 we are known for organizing nature tours and bird watching tours by name Kon-Tiki Tours and since 1999 tailored senior travellers´ tours by the name MatkaSeniorit. WHOPS (Wealthy Healthy Older People) are one of our top target market. Trio Travels is known for forest and agriculture study trips in addition to culture tours.

We operate with local agents and incoming agencies all over the world and are happy to offer tailored culture, nature & wellness tours as well as other special interest tours all over the world.

“All three brands –  Trio Travels, MatkaSeniorit and Kon-Tiki –  carry on even stronger and more vital with our entrepreneurial spirit. We have now 12 employees and three offices in Helsinki, Turku and Kuusamo ”, says owner Timo Saranpää.

The travel agency is named after the Inca sun god Viracocha for whom ”Kon-Tiki” was said to be an old name. Kon-Tiki was also the raft used by Norwegian explorer and writer Thor Heyerdahl in his 1947 expedition across the Pacific Ocean from South America to the Polynesian islands.  Kon-Tiki is also the name of Heyerdahl’s book; the Academy Award-winning documentary film chronicling his adventures; and the 2012 dramatised feature film nominated for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.
