Why Travel With
Salt & Wind?
Discovery...inspiration...seamless…memorable. These are just a few ways our guests describe why they love joining a Salt & Wind Travel food adventure.
At Salt & Wind Travel we’re committed to boutique travel because small groups allows us to show our guests the best of a destination’s local treasures. Our travel groups are small but the concept of boutique extends beyond the number of guests to the itinerary and partners we choose along the way.
To us, boutique travel means quality on an intimate scale. Traveling boutique way allows our guests a more intimate, local look into the destinations we visit. Be it small artisanal producers, family-owned restaurants, boutique hotels, or locally-owned businesses, we’re always looking for ways to make our trips be a reflection of a region’s terroir — something you’ll never get any other way.
A DIFFERENT KIND OF BOUTIQUE GROUP TRAVEL
The Salt & Wind Philosophy
FOOD TRAVEL FIRST
Our first love is food so that is the focus of our trips. But you can’t know a destination on food alone so each trip mixes in some culture, tours, shopping, and fun so you see all the things that make a destination unique.
SMALL GROUP SIZES
Our group trips are a minimum of 6 and maximum of 12 guests so you'll never be alone, yet never feel like you're actually on a group trip!
Salt & Wind travelers have the common bond of a love for food and culture, so they want to dig deeper to discover all that makes a destination delicious.
Skip all the hassle (and risk!) of planning a trip on your own. We do all the research, vetting, scheduling, and planning so all you have to do is pack your bags and show up ready to explore!
FOOD & TRAVEL PROS
The Salt & Wind Team is a mix of food and travel professionals and we take hospitality seriously! We lead group travel experiences to cities and countries we know inside and out, having lived or worked in each and every place.
Our networks of relationships and experience working in these areas means we can get discounts and pass those on to you. That's to say that every trip we run would cost you a multiple of what we sell it for if you were to plan it a la carte.
Our trips are like a well-planned party with quality quests and food. We invite to that mix our favorite locals, be they tour guides, food experts, and travel professionals so you get an authentic look into a destination.
First and foremost, we aim to provide unparalleled but very much unfussy service. From our concierge to our host, our team is here to make your travel experience a total joy.
Our team personally vets every experience so you know they’ll be quality, yet we also vary our itineraries from trip-to-trip so each trip experience is unique.
WE SPEAK THE LANGUAGE
Truth is many travel companies' leaders can't speak the language where they lead trips! At Salt & Wind Travel, fluency is a given as it’s the only way to really connect with locals in some of the places we travel!
Exclusive reservations, private driver, curated events, boutique accommodations, a photographer, and a concierge? You'll be rolling in style.
ONLY THE BEST
From premium private car service to luxury boutique hotels and even down to the tour guides, we work with partners who have exacting standards so you get the most for your money.
