What does Bikudo mean
As we were contemplating what to call our company, we found that we wanted something that resembles our idea of travelling, which is rooted in authentic experiences. As such, we came up with the idea of naming the company after a small village or place somewhere in the most authentic country we knew - India.
As we were planning a trip to Ladakh in Northern India we started to look for small authentic villages and found Bikudo and it just stuck with us. As such, Bikudo Travel was born.
What do we do?
We love to travel, we love to make new experiences and we love authentic adventures. But most of all, we love to inspire and help others with their own authentic adventures.
we have created numerous suggest itineraries that we can customise to suit your needs. On top of that we offer easy pick & choose tours that you can combine with our suggested itineraries, use as building blocks for your own itinerary or just pick and choose the one that you love. Since we can't predict everyones preferences we are also more than happy to tailor make your next adventure to fit you.
Bikudo was founded in 2020, but our roots go back to the mid 80's. Back then, two young travel enthusiasts, Mogens and Birgitte, started a small travel agency in Denmark with a focus on individual traveling and off the beaten path adventures. Under the guiding principle "we have nothing for sale", meaning great customer service and free travel advice cost you nothing together with a strong focus on values, they developed one of the most admired travel brands in Denmark.
In the early 90s Mogens and Birgitte had their first son, Frederik and later Simon came into this world. While Frederik was only just a year and a half old, they moved to Thailand to establish their first off shore business venture - a small travel center in Bangkok. During that time they lived in a small apartment in Chinatown where Frederik went to kindergarden. Rumour has it he spoke Thai before he spoke Danish.
A couple of years later Frederik spent his 3 year old birthday on an old sailing boat in Venezuela with a visit from the local tribe who, according to Mogens and Birgitte, knew how to throw a birthday party.
During the late 90s and start 00s Mogens and Birgitte took their two kids on many adventures and it is no surprise that they have been smitten by an adventurous lust in their adult life.
Today Simon and Frederik have begun a new adventure with Bikudo Travel. With the help of Mogens and Birgitte, they are focusing on the same values and passion for adventure which started it all.
A passion for travel and adventure is well and truly ingrained in their DNA and thus also in the DNA of Bikudo Travel. It is that passion for new adventures which drives everyone involved with Bikudo Travel to promote and deliver great experiences for all our travelers.
