With physical ratings ranging from easy to challenging, our trips put you on a tight-knit team ready to conquer whatever challenge is on the horizon. Whether you’re taking a compact hike over the course of a long weekend or spending a full week getting lost in the world, our active itineraries maximise every moment, so you won’t waste time with unnecessary rest stops. Close your eyes and envision the pride of summiting a country’s highest peak, the rush of charging into a dark cave, and the thrill of carving your own snow path with hardly another soul in sight. Here’s what to expect on one of our active trips.
1 . Get your adrenaline fix in Colorado forests and Utah red-rock deserts

There’s the road less travelled, then there’s this off-road adventure through America’s rugged backcountry. From the high-altitude alpine forests of Colorado to the red-rock deserts of Utah, you’ll hardly have a minute to acclimatise before speeding off to your next high-octane activity. Thrillseekers will experience a steady, heady injection of adrenaline at every point on the trip – rafting down the Colorado River and tracking black bears will see to that for starters. Even nights of rest aren’t without a quickened pulse, as you’ll enjoy cocktails at the Stanley Hotel, whose atmosphere inspired a guest – one Stephen King – to come up with the Overlook Hotel for his horror story The Shining.

Since you are here, we would like to share our vision for the future of travel – and the direction Culture Trip is moving in.

Culture Trip launched in 2011 with a simple yet passionate mission: to inspire people to go beyond their boundaries and experience what makes a place, its people and its culture special and meaningful — and this is still in our DNA today. We are proud that, for more than a decade, millions like you have trusted our award-winning recommendations by people who deeply understand what makes certain places and communities so special.

Increasingly we believe the world needs more meaningful, real-life connections between curious travellers keen to explore the world in a more responsible way. That is why we have intensively curated a collection of premium small-group trips as an invitation to meet and connect with new, like-minded people for once-in-a-lifetime experiences in three categories: Epic Trips, Mini Trips and Sailing Trips. Our Trips are suitable for both solo travellers and friends who want to explore the world together.

Epic Trips are deeply immersive 8 to 16 days itineraries, that combine authentic local experiences, exciting activities and enough down time to really relax and soak it all in. Our Mini Trips are small and mighty - they squeeze all the excitement and authenticity of our longer Epic Trips into a manageable 3-5 day window. Our Sailing Trips invite you to spend a week experiencing the best of the sea and land in the Caribbean and the Mediterranean.

We know that many of you worry about the environmental impact of travel and are looking for ways of expanding horizons in ways that do minimal harm – and may even bring benefits. We are committed to go as far as possible in curating our trips with care for the planet. That is why all of our trips are flightless in destination, fully carbon offset - and we have ambitious plans to be net zero in the very near future.
