Ready for adventure? You’ve come to the right place. Culture Trip has launched an inspiring selection of small-group adventures for all types of travellers – the courageous, the curious, and everyone in between. If you’re the intrepid type, you’ll love our more out-there itineraries – join one and you’ll do a lot more than see the top attractions. You’ll be with like-minded travellers who are passionate about exploring new places and cultures – plus a Local Insider to give you the lowdown.
Our discovery-focused trips are carefully curated to lift the lid on local culture, and designed with light or moderate physical activities woven into the journey, such as hiking, kayaking, rafting or cycling. Our selection below will immerse you in a new land with a friendly group – and you won’t have to take the trail at a high-intensity pace.
1 . Uncover history through wine in rural Georgia

Uncork ancient wine-making and baking traditions as you travel around rural Georgia, the cradle of woozy vinous pleasures (its history of wine production goes back 8,000 years). You’ll discover a taste for the Tbilisi of yesterday as you explore the capital’s Old Quarter – its fourth-century fortress, dreamy sulphur baths and colourful farmers market. With full bellies, you’ll earn a refill of wine as you hike into the Caucasus Mountains and through Lagodekhi National Park. With cheeks as red as the drink and the wild Georgian country before you, it’ll be difficult not to fall in love with this romantic land.

2 . Embark on a jungle safari adventure in Costa Rica

Journey from sea level up into cloud forest, stopping along the way to marvel at Costa Rica’s rich biodiversity. You’ll learn the definition of pura vida first-hand while spotting sloths on moonlit hikes and tasting coffee at the base of Arenal volcano. Surf lessons and yoga sessions in Tamarindo are fantastic complements to soaks in the Termales hot springs and whitewater rafting down the Balsa River. If you ever feel a set of eyes watching you wander, look up to the treeline and you may spot a family of capuchin monkeys smiling from above.

3 . Explore all the essentials of Ancient Egypt

The ancient pyramids of Egypt have captivated the world for millennia; now it’s your turn to witness these astonishing architectural achievements in person. Culture Trip’s ultimate Egypt experience awaits: an unforgettable voyage following the fortunes and fates of the imperious pharaohs. Viewing the Giza Pyramids, the Luxor Temple and the Valley of the Kings is only the start of your great adventure – this educational and exciting tour will have you kayaking down the Nile, exploring Cairo’s chaotic bazaar quarters, and toasting the animal-headed gods from a traditional sailboat, or felucca.

4 . See 1,000-year-old temples and fresh wildlife together in Sri Lanka

Island time takes on a different meaning in Sri Lanka, where 1,000-year-old temples and days-old wildlife coexist as if the clocks were eternally stopped. The past, present and future feel one and the same as you climb the ancient Sigiriya fortress, take a slow ride on the Nanuoya railway, and spy leopards and elephants snoozing in the wild. Ultimately you’ll realise that every moment spent in Sri Lanka is timelessly special.

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 Bespoke 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 Bespoke 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.
