World Expeditions has launched a suite of special itineraries designed for food lovers keen to immerse themselves in their chosen destination through foodie experiences and walking.
The new trips – Japan, Vietnam, South Africa, Peru and Morocco – follow the very successful Food Lovers series operated through the company’s European brand, UTracks, that combine culinary experiences with walking exploration of regional cultural and gastronomic highlights.
Whether you’re exploring the local delicacies like ceviche in Peru, diving head first into a fiesta of flavours in Mexico, or treating yourself to the sweet, salty and savoury flavours of Sri Lanka, these culinary tours are sure to tempt your taste buds.
“Discovering destinations by taste is a stimulating experience, giving you a deeper understanding of the destination while the outdoor activities provide opportunities to see first hand the landscapes that yield the local produce and to learn about the traditional processes that define the region’s cuisine,” Tsays World Expeditions CEO, Sue Badyari.
“As you move through the country in the company of our expert leaders in cuisine and culture, you’ll participate in behind-the-scenes cooking classes and visits to the best local kitchens, markets and growing areas in the region,” she said. “By pairing the adventurous and authentic World Expeditions travel style with a hands-on experience of culinary traditions, travellers are on track for a unique perspective in their destination of choice.”
