What we're about

The Authentic Travel Group brings together a diverse group of people who all share in common the belief that travel should not only enrich our own lives, but the lives of those in the countries we visit. We believe that the most rewarding kind of travel is experiential travel. Our group meets regularly to showcase upcoming custom tours that combine photography, painting, culinary arts, yoga, and cultural opportunities.

https://www.finisterra.ca/product/bali-vegan-trip/ Take a culinary journey through one of the most vegan-friendly islands in the world, with plant-based advocate and influencer Zach, co-founder of The Juice Truck. Bali is that place, you dream to go to. Once you’ve been you dream of going back. It’s the post card on your fridge. It’s your rainy day, armchair fantasy. For Zach, above all, Bali is a plant-based paradise and the mecca of vegan destinations! The food is what keeps calling him back. Indonesia is a country of large numbers; it consists of more than 17,000 islands, of which approximately 8000 are inhabited, 300 languages are spoken amongst a population of almost 250 million, making it the fourth most populous country. Over time deep and rich cultures have evolved within Indonesia including the mysteries of the spiritual Balinese. The word ‘Bali’ evokes thoughts of a paradise. It’s more than just a destination; it’s a tropical state of mind. From idyllic beaches, to meditative temples to yoga studios, Pinterest-worthy restaurants, super friendly locals, and lush rainforests; Bali checks all the boxes. Bali is a plant based heaven for Zach and he can’t wait to return. Join Zach and other vegan travellers on this amazing Bali Vegan Food Tour. Contact us for more information. The first step is booking your trip. Everything else awaits you from there. Option to extend to other parts of Indonesia! DATES: NOV 2-11, 2019 https://www.finisterra.ca/product/bali-vegan-trip/
