Youth travel specialist Contiki has launched a Vegan Food Europe Explorer group tour, which will be led by food bloggers.
The eight-day itinerary has been revealed ahead of Veganuary, which sees many Brits try a vegan diet during the month of January – in addition to the estimated 600,000 regular vegans in the UK.
Created in response to demand from its clients – who are aged from 18 to 35 – the eight-day food tour will showcase the plant-based highlights across Europe, starting in Berlin on August 16.
It will be led by bloggers Clare Every aka @thelittlelondonvegan (main picture) and Laura Grosch (below) aka @laurafruitfairy, and will also visit Prague, Vienna and Budapest.
Foodie experiences include a vegan cooking class in Budapest run by @laurafruitfairy, a private, plant-based EatWith dining experience with locals in Berlin, a dinner cruise along the Danube river and the chance to sample a wide range of vegan delicacies on an interactive food tour in Berlin.
Other experiences will include a guide bike tour of Prague and a classical music concert in Vienna, the home of Beethoven.
Donna Jeavons, sales and marketing director at Contiki UK, said: “Food and travel go hand in hand and it can be a challenge for those practising veganism to have the chance to experience local delicacies in certain parts of the world.
“We’ve seen a big increase in queries from travellers about where to find the best vegan eateries.
“A dedicated vegan trip has long been a dream itinerary for us and we look forward to welcoming travellers on to this culinary adventure.”
The escorted tour costs from £1,579 and includes seven nights’ accommodation, seven vegan breakfasts, one vegan lunch, five vegan dinners, transport on the trip and several excursions.
