Marcelo Guimarães, a native of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, visited the five Nordic capitals for the first time in 2011 and fell in love with the amazing sights, tastes, sounds, and all else which is characteristic of Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, and Finland. He returned home with a vision: to showcase the wonders of Scandinavia to travelers from all corners of the world. He left a 20-year career in science and engineering to pursue his dream and built what is now Discover Scandinavia Tours, where he serves as president and CEO.
