History buffs can now travel the world while learning more about historical events.
May 12, 2022
A+E Networks has partnered with educational travel provider Academic Travel Abroad (ATA) for a multi-year agreement to launch History Travel, a curated experience that bears The History Channel brand. The program launch was announced by Lance Still, senior vice president, consumer enterprises, A+E Networks.
History Travel is a series of domestic and international destinations and itineraries inspired by events and people in history. Each tour is designed and led by History Channel-approved historians and local experts to uncover new ways for travelers to experience historical places and bring context to the events and cultures that have shaped the present day.
"We're all looking for more meaningful experiences, and History Travel will enable adventurers to connect more deeply to people and places," says Still. "Providing expert historical context to these curated destinations is a new way to engage our core audiences and expand the brand to curious history-buffs seeking a trusted source to help them make the most of their travel experience and connect to the larger historical picture."
Beginning in November, the first trip touches down in New Orleans. Trips include Gettysburg and Antietam, Yellowstone National Park, Pearl Harbor, England, France, Greece and Italy. The sites and itineraries are designed for history enthusiasts curious to explore the stories of the most oft-traveled destinations and the perspectives of the people that made those locations notable; walk in the footsteps of Winston Churchill's England or revel in the legacy of jazz legends like Louis Armstrong in New Orleans—all under the guidance of expert historians.
