It’s a beautiful idea, getting a tattoo while you’re travelling the world. You’ll always remember the experience and the art you put on your body will be even more meaningful than it would be otherwise. It’s easy to fall into tattoo cliché, though – think beyond world maps and wanderlust script tattoos. We’ve assembled some ideas that feel fresh and different.

Native nature


A map of the stars, so you can always find your way home



A representation of the season


An animal that reminds you of home


An example of a different way to travel


Something that represents where you want to go


A landscape


Your favourite place


The moon, because wherever you are in the world, it’s always there


A symbol that reminds you of your favourite country (in this case, Japan)


A design in an unusual place, just like you can sometimes feel like when you’re away from home


A symbol of the different colours you’ve seen in the world


landscape with balloons floating in the air

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: Culture Trips, Rail Trips and Private Trips. Our Trips are suitable for both solo travelers, couples and friends who want to explore the world together.

Culture Trips are deeply immersive 5 to 16 days itineraries, that combine authentic local experiences, exciting activities and 4-5* accommodation to look forward to at the end of each day. Our Rail Trips are our most planet-friendly itineraries that invite you to take the scenic route, relax whilst getting under the skin of a destination. Our Private Trips are fully tailored itineraries, curated by our Travel Experts specifically for you, your friends or your family.

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.
