Saranac Lake Area Tourism Council (SLATC)
is exploring the potential for increasing tour group travel to our area. We thank the Saranac Lake Area Chamber of Commerce for sending you this brief survey on our behalf.
Thank you for participating.
International travelers are increasing and tour groups are the main way they travel. They stay longer and spend more money than other travelers across all sectors: lodging, food & beverage, recreation and transportation. Tours today can be as small as 10 people with a variety of itineraries and themes. New York City is one of the main gateways for international travelers. Visiting National Parks and monuments is one of their top three priorities, yet at this time only 8% of upstate travelers come to the Adirondacks. We have an opportunity to work together to make our area more appealing and accessible to tour group operators.
