Festival Trips with JOURNEYS
All JOURNEYS trips search for insights into what makes other cultures distinctive, successful and appealing. Our festival trips focus specifically on ceremonial events and themes, but also provide you with opportunities to see other prominent attractions in the destination you visit. JOURNEYS festival trips will certainly appeal to photographers, artists and musicians, but most festivals also occur at the time of year when the weather is good, the air is clear and food is abundant. These festival trips feature joyous events at which visitors are welcome. Observe these festivals not just for the color, music and ceremony, but to appreciate what local people hold as sacred and how they celebrate their understanding of God and the universe. You will join a local expert guide who will offer festival interpretation, manage travel details and provide a context for understanding the events you observe.
The festival trips listed below are likely to attract small groups of like-minded travelers on these specific travel dates. In many destinations we can provide private arrangements to visit these and other festivals. When you are considering one of our destinations, ask our staff about festivals that might occur during the period of your travel, or ask about specific celebrations or events you may have heard about and we will determine if we can plan a festival extension or private festival departure to match your interests.
Festivals for which often provide private independent or custom travel arrangements include:
