Multigenerational Trips To Be Big In 2021

STORY BY Patrick 22nd December 2020

As what most people feel is the worst year of their lives comes to an end, there are hopes that 2021 will be better.

The Austrian Tourist Board is noting different areas that some think will be big once travel resumes.

One result of all that has happened in 2020 is that many are anticipating a surge in the demand for multigenerational trips following a period of separation.

Austrian regions such as St. Johann in Salzburg, Serfaus Fiss Ladis and Kitzbüheler Alpen St. Johann in Tirol are family friendly from top to bottom, offering plenty of activities in which everyone, from little kids to their doting grandparents, can get involved, such as balloon rides and short, accessible themed walking trails.

The Great Outdoors

Trade experts also predict that holidaymakers in 2021 will be looking to immerse themselves in nature, with wide open spaces, clean air and fresh water. For glimmering lakes of drinking-water quality, relaxing woods and energising natural formations, head to Lake Weissensee in Carinthia, the forest wellness trail at the Reiterkogel in Hinterglemm and the majestic Krimmler Wasserfälle, Europe’s highest waterfall.

Making like a Local

UK tour operators meanwhile predict that, once travel can return safely, holidaymakers will be eager to get to know their destination by seeking out insight from locals. In Austrian locations such as Vorarlberg, Zell am See-Kaprun and Hochkönig, visitors can join locals to experience a special side to the region, and even learn new skills. Look forward to husky sledding with Husky Toni, yodelling with Thomas Reitsamer and educational hiking with local herbal educators.

 Bucketlist Adventures

Finally, after a year of little to no travel, the allure of big, bucket-list holidays is understandable, with people excited to experience the once-in-a-lifetime trips to which they’ve been looking forward while staying at home.

For adventurers and hiking enthusiasts, this might mean Austria’s iconic 413km Eagle Walk, while road-trippers can head to the Grossglockner High Alpine Road, feeling free as they fly along this spectacular panoramic path, radio blasting, the wind in their hair.
