Welcome to Travel Experiences
Experiential travel can emphasize different areas of local life – culinary, culture, history, shopping, nature or social life and can therewith be the basis for a holistic travel experience. 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. Therefore, the traveler usually gets in touch with locals who give guidance how to experience a place. This can be a friend, an accommodation host or another person.
Experiential travel tends to focus on travel that is inspirational, personalized and/ or creates a path to self-discovery. Examples include driving a tank and shooting military weaponry at a test range, flying an airplane under instruction, and mining for gold or diamonds. Other mock experiences include reenactments of historical events, fighting a fire at a training facility, and running through a maze.
