Favorite Destinations: Too many to list, mostly in Asia, Hawaii, Mexico and Europe, with Austria at the top of the list

Viktory Weyand takes care of his clients in great detail, and is a never-ending source of interesting stories. In the office, he keeps morale high and offers sage advice, when prompted, based on a lifetime built around hospitality.

Growing up on a farm in the mountains of Austria, Viktor was educated in hospitality and hotel operations, and came to Michigan in the early 1960s to teach skiing in northern Michigan. His talents as a host who is gifted at sharing destinations with others led him to found Viktor Weyand Travel Service in 1974.

There is not a corner of the world where he doesn’t know the finest hotels and attractions. He enjoys any and all outdoor activities, especially mountain biking, hiking, rollerblading, skiing, and snowboarding. He enjoys living in Traverse City because he can participate in all these outdoor activities, and because of all the great people who live here and work with him! During his free time at home, he likes to spend time with his lovely wife, Alice, and drink good wine with friends.

Viktor’s saying of “do the unexpected for people and you will have a very happy journey through life” guides the company today.
