Please say hello to our team of travel experts. We are a distributed team of travel lovers that believes in a world without borders.

Kyle Kroeger, Owner

Kyle Kroeger is the founder and owner of ViaTravelers. He’s also a dad, husband and seasoned traveler. Kyle started ViaTravelers during a trip to Italy since he’s known to be a street traveler (“via” is Italian for street and a way of means to travel).

Kyle helps travelers find their next adventure through his videography and photography that can be seen from the ViaTravelers YouTube channel, whether it’s exploring new places or revisiting old favorites.

If he isn’t traveling, he’s likely daydreaming.

Favorite Destinations: Amsterdam, Paris, Tokyo, Strasbourg, Kyoto
