The story of Voigt Travel
Friedrich Anton Voigt
Our passion for travel dates back to 1857 when the German trader Friedrich Anton Voigt settled down in the port of Rotterdam to become a large ship broker, well-known for its cargo to the Baltic Sea. In the 1950's the new owner decided to also take passengers on board which was the cradle for the foundation of Voigt Travel Ltd.
Innovator and trendsetter
Since then Voigt Travel has been the leading specialist in car holidays to Scandinavia. Every summer thousands of people drove their cars on the ferry to Finland to start a roundtrip to the Polar Circle and the Midnight sun in Finnish and Swedish Lapland, the fjords and the North Cape in northern Norway.
Success in this area made it possible to explore other outskirts in Europe such as the islands of Sicily and Sardinia in the Mediterranean. Soon the first fly & drive packages were offered, followed by more destinations in the north of Europa, such as Scotland and Iceland.
Largest in the world
In 2003 Voigt Travel took a huge step by developing active winter holidays to Lapland in conjunction with direct flights to the Arctic area. This was entirely at the companies' own risk thus creating a brand new travel experience.

How do we do it?
Since our foundation we have been following a distinct road to success by exploring unpredictable destinations and unknown regions often with a lack of infrastructure. We get in touch with local stakeholders about the possibilities to develop a touristic infrastructure, based on both their and our knowledge. We prefer to work with partners that have a strong bond with their home region. Our aim is to build up a sustainable relationship or rather become friends in business.
