Ditch the crackers and pack your appetite, we can create a Real Food Adventure – vegan style.
Whether you eat a vegan diet – or just want to test the waters – we’re here to help you navigate new delicious food experiences on your next adventure. With the help of our expert Tailor-Made team, we’ve got insider tips on where to find the best vegan eats, unique activities (vegan-friendly cooking classes, anyone?) and authentic travel experiences so you can sit back and enjoy with like-minded travelers. Needless to say, we’re excited… and hungry.
Enquire with our Tailor-Made team
Feast on vegan delights in Dehli
India’s capital sure packs a culinary punch. Munch on vegan samosas and paratha (Indian flatbread) and more as you navigate its winding streets. Maybe finish up your day tasting the delicious offerings at the local Langar (community kitchen).
Discover vegan living in Tuscany
Choose to stay in a unique all-vegan villa in the Tuscan hills complete with panoramic views of the rolling countryside. True to the ethos of this off-beat gem, the furniture is crafted by hand and made by locally-sourced chalk, clay, hemp and linen. During your visit, you could enjoy a delicious organic farm-to-table vegan feast.
Learn the secrets of Rajasthani cuisine
Create an adventure where you learn the nuances of Rajasthani cuisine on a guided tour through some of Jaipur’s many markets. Pick up vegetables, grains and spices that you’ll later put to good use at a cooking class at a haveli (mansion). Relax, sit back and enjoy your own authentic vegan Rajasthani fare.
Why choose Intrepid
We've teamed up with our expert local leaders to create a bespoke range of vegan-friendly tours. Whether it’s tracking down the best lentil fritters in Jaipur or Pad Thai in Bangkok, they know just the place to find your next foodie hit.
Real life experiences
We love the highlights, but for us the real magic is found off the beaten path. We’re talking authentic cooking classes with local chefs, shopping at markets and other hidden gems you’ll only discover with Intrepid.
Big coach buses and flag-toting tour guides just aren’t for us. With a maximum group size of 12, our groups are able to travel under the radar and visit spots many big tour groups can’t. It also means we can accommodate dietary requirements, and build this range of vegan-friendly itineraries in the first place.
While you don’t have to be vegan to join these trips, there’s a good chance your heart is in the same place. On these trips you’ll be travelling responsibly: eating, sleeping and getting around locally and respecting animal welfare. We’ll also carbon offset your trip on your behalf.
Like the other trips in our Real Food Adventures range, a vegan-focussed trip is designed to showcase the best local food experiences. The difference is that it's a trip that can be catered to a vegan diet.
We understand some travellers may choose to practice veganism in every aspect of their lives, but while we can guarantee that the food on the itinerary will be vegan, we are unable to guarantee other aspects, like accommodation and transport, will also be vegan (for instance, sitting on a local bus that has leather seats).
Our Tailor-Made team is here to help. We'll use our 30 years of experience and regional specialists to help you create your perfect vegan food adventure.
Animal product-free options will be available for all included meals and we will make efforts to accommodate other dietary requirements. When it comes to our travellers’ personal definition of veganism (e.g. only eating plant-based, not eating honey), we will do our best to accommodate these requirements as well.
You might be travelling in countries where veganism may be new to the local people, and efforts to prevent cross-contamination may not be as diligent as in your home country. We make best efforts to ensure that meals are prepared in an environment free from cross-contamination, and your local leader will be there to translate when needed.
You’ll be with a local leader for the entire duration of your trip. So even when you’re enjoying your free time or a meal is not included, they’ll be able to provide you with suggestions and advise you on what to know.
We understand it’s important to have the expertise of someone who not only knows the destination but also what it means to eat a vegan diet. That’s why we aim to provide you with a local leader who is vegan – or at least a practicing vegetarian – who really gets and appreciates the nuances of veganism. Regardless, your local leader will be eating vegan along with you during the trip.
On a Vegan Food Adventure, you might enjoy cooking classes, market visits, plus hitting the highlights of a destination. And like any Intrepid trip, you’ll be doing so locally and responsibly.
Of course! Anyone who has an interest in local vegan cuisine is welcome on our Vegan Food Adventures.
Can I travel on other Intrepid Travel trips if I’m vegan? What about the other Real Food Adventures trips?
We do our best on all our trips, including our Real Food Adventures, to accommodate dietary requirements, including veganism, and all our Real Food Adventures include at least one plant-based meal.
