Culture is like a fingerprint of society - each one is unique and identifies who society is. And our hand-crafted culture tours highlight some of the world's many fascinating cultures. Dive back into history as you explore Europe; get to know the ways of life in the remote villages of Africa or Africa's bustling modern cities. Witness the ancient ruins of Asia and how much of their modern cultures are a reflection of their storied past. You can even head into the middle of the South Pacific to get to know the customs and traditions of Polynesia and other tiny and isolated island nations. Each tour shows off the rituals, cuisine, music, customs, and traditions of the culture, with opportunities to spend time with locals who will give you a first-hand account of their lifestyle. Let us know when you're ready to plan your cultural travel!

Travel Guide for Cultural Experiences

What to expect on a Cultural experience with Adventure Life
We believe that immersion is the only way to truly know the ways of life of different peoples and societies, which is why we have curated these tours that give you an exclusive cultural experience in destinations all over the world. 

Isolated tribes and Indigenous Communities
If you're hoping to see ancient rituals and simpler ways of life, then consider a cultural experience in:
  • The Amazon - Contrary to popular myth, most of the indigenous communities in the Amazon have been contacted by modern society, but they choose to keep their customs and traditions. We have formed relationships with several of these communities who are excited to share their jungle lifestyles with you!
  • Africa - Perhaps the most famous native group that we visit on our cultural experiences in Africa is the Maasai, who have found a balance between integration into the modern world without losing their customs and traditions. Several of our Africa tours visit other tribes that are even more secluded from the buzz of society. 
  • The South Pacific - These early oceanic explorers were the first to settle the islands of the South Pacific and their distance from the nearest major cities has helped them preserve their ways of life (and more native languages than the rest of the world combined) for thousands of years.
What might I get to do on a cultural tour?
  • Sample local dishes - a mix of some delicious flavors that you didn't even know existed and some that might even challenge your palate! 
  • Learn how to cook these dishes for yourself using the same methods and techniques that the indigenous communities have used for centuries.
  • Participate in ceremonies, dances, and rituals! Many native groups are excited to share their ways of life with travelers and will give you a front row seat or even a role in their ceremonial rituals.
