Exodus Travels Has New Foodie Programs in Italy, Spain and Morocco

Adventure tour operator Exodus Travels has just unveiled a new line-up of foodie-focused trips as part of its brand-new “Gastronomic Getaways Collection." Designed for food lovers and adventure-seekers, these trips take travelers explore street markets and traditional family-owned restaurants in small villages in Italy, Spain and Morocco.

Here are some examples:

Guests can indulge in pastel de natas while riding long beautiful coastlines on a "Southern Portugal cycling adventure” or enjoy a bowl of pho as they glide past the towering karsts of Ha Long Bay on a “Vietnam & Cambodia Highlights” tour. These adventures offer the opportunity to connect with the culinary culture and history engrained in each dish. But the “Gastronomic Getaways Collection” is not just about the food: It’s also about adventure. Travelers will have the opportunity to explore each destination’s natural beauty, from hiking along coastlines or mountain ranges to cycling through countrysides and along city streets.

Below are a few of the other trips that make up this "tasty" collection:

Cycling Girona and the Catalan Coast:" On this seven-day guided trip, travelers will explore a region considered by cycling pros to be among the best on the planet. Led by an expert guide, the itinerary explores historic villages via disused railway lines, quiet small roads and coastal paths, and includes guided tours around the medieval towns of Besalu, Begur and Pals, a stop at a local vineyard for a memorable tasting session and, of course, exploring the local cuisine. 

Tuscan Hills & Chianti Wines – Premium Adventure:" Travelers will indulge in the food that has been officially nominated to become a UNESCO-listed Intangible Cultural Heritage site on this eight-day premium guided tour. Based out of a private villa on the cusp of the Chianti winelands, not far from the medieval town of San Gimignano, this Tuscan walking adventure visits Florence and Siena, small villages and the walled town of Certaldo. Activities include three handpicked wine-tasting experiences, a visit to the birthplace of chianti, two dinners with wine-pairing menus and more. When guests aren’t exploring, they can be lounging next to the villa’s pool enjoying vineyard views or sampling regional produce cooked by the private chef. There’s also an option for an introduction to classic Tuscan cuisine by taking part in a hands-on cooking class. 

Treasures of Morocco – Premium Adventure:" Guests will discover the cultural diversity of this North African Kingdom on this 12-day culture-focused premium adventure. They will stay in accommodations that include traditional riads, eco-lodge, and a luxury desert camp. Guests will also tour diverse cities, journey into the Sahara and navigate dunes on camelback, have lunch with a Berber family, indulge in a relaxing hammam session and more. Travelers will also take a culinary voyage as they go, and even join a cooking class where they can then savor the results.
