slow trips

Time for country & people

What the heck is slow trips?

Say ´goodbye´ to conventional tourism and
´hello´ to experiencing local culture!

First, the dry facts: Slow Trips is a LEADER Transnational Cooperation (TNC) project on socio-cultural tourism and slow travel experiences.

Sounds fancy and complicated and maybe even a little boring, right? But what does it mean? It means that, across Europe, various regions have come together to create something that is called European Slow Travel Experiences.

The slow trips offers you’ll find here are all niche products in the field of creative tourism, ranging from the amusing to the downright kooky.

We want to leave dusty old tourism behind and give you sustainable cultural tourism off the beaten track instead. You, the traveler, will have the opportunity to realize your creative potential through active participation in your trip. You’ll get a peek at (and take part in) the actual realities of the people who live and work in the region, discovering and experiencing everyday local cultures.
