Experiential travel connects the traveller with the essence of a place and its people. It engages visitors in a series of memorable travel adventures, revealed over time, that are inherently personal, engage the senses, and make connections on an emotional, physical, spiritual or intellectual level.
Experiential travel is all about going beyond the sightseeing by immersing oneself and becoming a part of the moment being experienced. The engagement is so profound that your travel experience leaves you enriched and rejuvenated at a deeper level.
One connects with the ethos of the place in such a wonderful manner that it helps unwind and rediscover yourself.
“The goal is to more deeply understand a travel destination’s culture, people, and history by connecting with it, more than just by visiting it.” In part, it sells the idea that you’re a “Real Traveler” and Not a Tourist. You take part in programs and activities that help you experience the place and people, get you off the beaten path, see more than the main sights and attractions.
