There is no better way to experience a country or to authentically engage with its people and culture than to participate in one of its national festivals, holidays, or events. Beginning in 2019, The Evolved Traveler will be offering these unique and inviting opportunities to our guests.
We have compiled exclusive journeys to some of the world’s more fascinating, exciting, and enriching events and festivals to provide our guests with true one-of-a-kind itineraries. From the Kwita Izina Gorilla Naming Ceremony in Rwanda to Guatemala’s Kite Festival celebrating Dia de los Muertos, from New Year’s Eve in Havana to China’s Harbin Ice Festival and Lunar New Year, or the Bordeaux Food & Wine Festival, our exclusive, small group festival series itineraries are sure to take your destination experience to new heights!
On November 1st each year, Guatemala’s families honor their departed loved ones on Dia de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead). Besides the traditional visit to the cemetery, this day is marked with colorful and extravagant kite festivals and dining on fiambre, the traditional dish of the day. We invite you to join us on this one-of-a-kind, 9-night/10-day journey to Guatemala to engage with the people, culture, and history of this vibrant Central American country.
