For a dose of the outdoors, visit the Salzkammergut region, a resort area and UNESCO World Heritage Site stretching from Salzburg to the peaks of the Dachstein Mountains. Take a drive or hike and witness the region’s glacial lakes, ice caves, mountains, alpine lakes, sprawling pastures and waterfalls, as well as colorful villages and castles.

Trends / History

With the influx of services like 23andMe and Ancestry.com, now more than ever, people are interested in learning more about their backgrounds. In turn, this trend is transitioning to the travel industry.

 

Heritage travel offers individuals the opportunity to connect with their past in a meaningful way. Traveling to the destinations of your ancestors allows for deep connections to your roots. Services like 23andMe and AncestryDNA are great places to start for learning more about your past. These services provide maps with the regions where your relatives lived. You may even discover connections to destinations you never knew.

 

Retrace your ancestors’ footsteps by visiting the places where they lived. Once there, you can do research at local archives, churches and cemeteries for documents and other clues to the past. Try looking up family members who still live there, or anyone who may be a distant relative. Some tour operators offer packages highlighting this trend. Classic Journeys offers customizable private tours, as well as predetermined itineraries.

 

If you aren’t able to find specific artifacts, plan to stroll the streets of the destination for some cultural immersion. Visit museums detailing the history of the destination. Sample traditional local cuisine to further feel connected.
