Multi-Day Trips That Embrace Slow Travel

Nick Dauk

Senior Travel Writer

Take your foot off the gas and relish the delights of slow travel on these glacially paced Culture Trip adventures.

It’s never the wrong time to dial back the pace and go slow – especially if you’ve been working up to the hilt and are really in need of a holiday. It’s the difference between sampling and savouring wine, between visiting a place and truly experiencing the community. Slow travel gifts you a chance to see Croatia’s charming islands, Georgia’s remote villages and Scotland’s wild highlights. These multi-day Culture Trips embrace slow travel, giving you time to take in the best of each country’s food, culture and scenery.

Georgia and the Caucasus

How do you pack millennia rich with history, gastronomy and ever-changing landscapes into a nine-day trip? Slowly. This multi-day tour will have you galavanting through Georgia at a steady pace, affording ample time to learn the minutiae of the country’s ancient wine- and bread-making practices. Drink up Tbilisi’s culture and customs with long soaks in the sulphur baths and even longer nights out, discovering which drinks pair best with culinary treats in the world’s Cradle of Wine.

Blissful Bali

We hate to suggest following the crowd, but the 48 stone statues standing in calm contentment beneath Bali’s waters can’t be wrong: travel is best when you stop moving and savour the moment. This multi-day trip does involve hopping around the island, but not at the expense of leisure. Snorkelling to the fascinating statues and climbing Mount Batur to feast on an immaculate sunrise are intertwined with shoreside tanning, e-bike exploration and picnics by the Banyumala Twin Waterfalls, so you can relish every moment in paradise.

Edinburgh and the Scottish Highlands by Train

Train travel is the best way to do slow travel, so our Rail Trips are perfect for seeing a lot without breaking a sweat. You get to drink in the stunning scenery of your destination from the comfort of your window seat, while each stop focuses on a different landscape, cultural quirk or culinary delight. Our Scotland Rail Trip starts with the sleeper train from London to Fort William. You’ll sip whisky at a local distillery, embark on a gentle hike in the Cairngorms National Park and meander down the arty streets of Inverness and Aberdeen, not to mention a memory-making trip on the Jacobite steam train – aka the real-life Hogwarts Express – across Glenfinnan Viaduct.
