Authentic Adventures

For over 30 years now, Authentic Adventures has been offering innovative and immersive escapes to creative travellers around the world. Even in this age of ever-progressing technology and overtourism, there are still wild and undiscovered places left – and you don’t always have to go halfway around the globe to find them…

The tours offered by Authentic Adventures fall into five categories: bridge, food, painting, walking and singing. Its painting holidays are comprised of a magical mix of idyllic locations, professional and supportive tutors and small groups of fellow artists, which ensures that your painting goals are reached while enjoying a real holiday. Considered one of the most experienced singing holiday operators in the UK, Authentic Adventures has been organising acapella group tours since 2003 and its professional tutors firmly believe that everyone – no matter what their level of skill – can indulge in the thrill of singing in harmony. Then, there are walking tours, where expert guides help to make these holidays stand out from the crowd. Go off-the-beaten-track to places you would never discover on your own. Authentic Adventures also has a range of Bridge holiday, for those among us who can’t get enough of this trick-taking card game. Finally, what’s a holiday without delicious food? The flavours of a destination can tell as much of its story as the buildings built there and the ground it stands upon. Join us on a culinary adventure, sampling the very best of regional gastronomy while taking part in authentic cookery classes, truffle hunts and more.
