Who we are

Anthrotourist is an adventure, education, and immersion company whose main objective it to get our guests as local as possible. We believe traveling, learning about other ways of life, and interacting with people different than ourselves make us compassionate global citizens. Fueled by our combined 40 years of international travel, we created a company articulating

these beliefs through adventure, individual connections, and unique experiences. Travelers will receive customized itineraries catering to their fitness levels; food restrictions and preferences; desired down-time; and, most importantly, will leave with a genuine connection to their destination’s people, culture, and history.
