As summer draws to a close, thoughts turn to next year’s holiday. For summer 2024, early bookings have started in earnest, particularly in Europe. We take a look at the top luxury travel trends for 2024.
Willing to travel for food? We know from customer feedback that our culinary tours are amongst the most popular on offer.
From hands-on experiences shopping in local markets and then creating a local specialty, to eating in a local’s home or wine tasting and lunch in the vineyard, travellers are looking for those experiential moments based around gastronomy.
Whilst experiencing Michelin-starred is certainly memorable, culinary travel is steering towards connecting with the people and culture of the destination.
At TOMA & COE, we’re currently creating a BRAND-NEW CULINARY TOUR FOR 2024 which will bring you closer to the taste and traditions of Andalucia. Sign up for our newsletter to be the first to know about this new and exciting luxury experience.
Wellness: Beyond the Spa
Mental and physical wellbeing is high on the agenda, and increasingly so since the pandemic. For meditative hiking, our Yoga Caminos are just the ticket. Even when in a group, you find the space to meditate as you walk the historic pilgrims’ path towards Santiago de Compostela. Each trip includes our own special touches of luxury accommodation, dining in top-class local restaurants and yoga to help you clear your mind for the daily hike.
Andalucia also offers incredible natural areas for wild swimming, cycling, hiking, and adventure holidays – taking you beyond the spa into nature’s own health resort.
Luxury Rail Travel
If you’ve seen any footage of the Orient Express, you’ll understand why luxury rail travel is making a comeback. Imagine the glamour of travel from a bygone age with modern comforts, and you have luxury trains in Spain.
El Tren Al Andalus, for example, lets you explore the gems of Andalucia in comfort and style. Combining sustainable travel with insights into the history, culture and gastronomy of the regions, you’ll visit top sights aboard this luxurious hotel on the rails.
Unlike the hectic vacations of yesteryear, slow travel promotes the idea of fully engaging with local communities and cultures, savouring genuine experiences rather than hastily navigating through tourist hubs. This trend involves extended journeys and selecting relaxed itineraries.
Slow Travel is where TOMA & COE excels. Our local knowledge allows us to take you deep into the area’s culture and traditions, without rushing from one site to another.
As experience-driven vacations, personalised getaways, and a heightened emphasis on accessibility and sustainable tourism continue to gain popularity, 2024 offers the opportunity to turn your travel aspirations into reality, no matter what they may be.
